Summary

A novelisation of ITV's Sanditon, an unfinished Jane Austen story airing on ITV this autumn in the Sunday Night primetime slot.

Written only months before Austen's death in 1817, Sanditon tells the story of the joyously impulsive, spirited and unconventional Charlotte Heywood and her spiky relationship with the humorous, charming Sidney Parker. When a chance accident transports her from her rural hometown of Willingden to the would-be coastal resort of the eponymous title, it exposes Charlotte to the intrigues and dalliances of a seaside town on the make, and the characters whose fortunes depend on its commercial success. The twists and turns of the plot, which takes viewers from the West Indies to the rotting alleys of London, exposes the hidden agendas of each character and sees Charlotte discover herself...and ultimately find love.  

Completed by award-winning novelist Anne-Marie Crowhurst, Sanditon will delight both fans of Jane Austen and the forthcoming television show.

Well read just same horrible ending

Wish I hadn’t bothered. This is exactly like the TV show with some small minor differences in dialogue. But you end up with the same disappointing ending although slightly different it has the same outcome. :o( Don’t waste your money

Not Austen, but a good novel in its own right

I like that this version doesn't suppose to be or pretend to be Austen. Because it is written in their own style all the way through it doesn't feel odd to listen to like some of the other attempts at Sandition. It is no substitute for the real version but we are never going to get that. It's a good alternative storyline inspired by what would have been another amazing Austen novel.

Same as the tv show.

It follows almost verbatim to the tv show. There are a few extra scenes that were not on the show.
