I am a huge Jane Austen fan. Of her six novels, my favorite is undoubtedly Persuasion. It is the story of love gone awry and a second chance at love between a Baronet’s daughter and a young naval captain during the Napoleonic war time period. In my short story, The Curate’s Brother, I tell of how Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth meet through the eyes of Edward Wentworth, the Curate of Monkford. You could consider this short story as a prequel to the original novel Persuasion.
The Curate’s Brother will be available via Amazon on October 10, 2014. If you are one of the many fans Jane Austen’s work, and the myriad of variation stories based on her novels, The Curate’s Brother will be sure to appeal to you.
