              'When a young woman, on whom every comfort in life is bestowed, has the misfortune to inhabit a neighbourhood in which peace and harmony reign, her ability to perceive and understand the world must be diminished and, consequently, in need of adjustment.' Based on 'The Watsons', a... novel fragment by Jane Austen, 'Emma and Elizabeth' contrasts the fortunes of the Watsons sisters in a world where the alternative to marriage is poverty. Emma returns to her family home penniless when her widowed guardian remarries. At a local assembly, she is admired by more than one suitor, but her lack of fortune has the potential to ruin her happiness. Elizabeth, a woman on the verge of spinsterhood, has little hope of love. But when duty to the family is tested, one sister is obliged to sacrifice her own happiness for the sake of the other. Set in Surrey in 1795, 'Emma and Elizabeth' blends passages from the original fragment into the narrative, creating a unique story which is faithful to Jane Austen's style and subject matter.

              ... What in the name of common sense is to recommend Brinshore? - A most insalubrious air - roads proverbially detestable - water brackish beyond example, impossible to get a good dish of tea within three miles of the place - and as for the soil - it is so cold and ungrateful tha...t it can hardly be made to yield a cabbage... (Sanditon) The year is 1816. The war with France is over and Captain Charles Blake is soon to return home for good. Emma Osborne and Anne Musgrave will spend the summer with their Aunt Harding at a little known paradise on the south coast of England. Not far away, Captain Blake is intent on fulfilling a solemn promise. A sequel to 'Emma and Elizabeth', 'Brinshore' takes its inspiration from Jane Austen's unfinished manuscripts, 'The Watsons' and 'Sanditon'. Ann Mychal was awarded 'Best Debut Author' by Austenprose in 2014 for her first novel, 'Emma and Elizabeth'.
