              Jo Baker's Longbourn meets Therese Anne Fowler's Z in this witty, poignant novel about Cassandra Austen and her famous sister, Jane. Whoever looked at an elderly lady and saw the young heroine she once was? England, 1840. For the two decades following the death of her beloved sis...ter, Jane, Cassandra Austen has lived alone and unwed, spending her days visiting friends and relations and quietly, purposefully working to preserve her sister's pristine reputation. Now in her 60s and increasingly frail, Cassandra goes to stay with the Fowles of Kintbury, family of her long-dead fianc , in search of a trove of Jane's letters. Dodging her melancholy hostess and a meddlesome housemaid, Cassandra eventually hunts down the letters and confronts the buried secrets they hold, secrets not only about Jane but about Cassandra herself. Will Cassandra bare the most private details of her life to the world, or commit her sister's legacy to the flames? Moving back and forth between the dusty vicarage and Cassandra's vibrant memories of her years with Jane, interwoven with Jane's brilliantly reimagined lost letters, Miss Austen is the untold story of the most important person in Jane Austen's life. With extraordinary empathy, emotional complexity, and wit, Gill Hornby finally gives Cassandra Austen her due, bringing to life a woman as captivating as any Austen heroine.

              A lively and hilarious tale that's pure fun. If you loved Bridget Jones's Diary and you have a child in school, THE HIVE is the book for you. --Maria Semple, author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette It's the start of another school year at St. Ambrose. While the children are busy in ...the classroom, their mothers are learning sharper lessons. Lessons in friendship. Lessons in betrayal. Lessons in the laws of community, the transience of power...and how to get invited to lunch. Beatrice -- undisputed queen bee. Ruler, by Divine Right, of all school fundraising, this year, last year, and, surely, for many to come. Heather -- desperate to volunteer, desperate to be noticed, desperate to belong. Georgie -- desperate for a cigarette. And Rachel -- watching them all, keeping her distance. But soon to discover taht the line between amused observer and miserable outcast is a thin one. THE HIVE is a wickedly funny and brilliantly observed story about female friendship, power plays, and the joys and perils (well, mainly perils) of trying to do one's part.
