Publisher's Synopsis

Robert Rodi (Edgar and Emma, Bitch in a Bonnet) returns to Jane Austen's juvenilia, adapting yet another of her rollicking teenage farces into a full-length novel in the mature Austen style!The small village of Rovedon, Hertfordshire has a marriage problem: it's home to three eligible brides, but only two available bachelors. And both of these young swains are courting Amelia Webster - the richest, proudest, and most advantageously connected of the three ladies. The love lives of all involved depend on which suitor Amelia accepts - and which one she rejects.Enter a dashing newcomer: a roguish charmer named Henry Beverley, who upsets the fragile romantic equilibrium and makes a serious dent in Amelia's iron-clad self-confidence. It's only the first in a series of upheavals that reaches a crescendo of cringe-inducing humiliation. Will Amelia rise again? And who will want her, if she does? Filled with dazzling wit, sparkling dialogue, over-the-top characters, and wickedly funny set pieces, AMELIA WEBSTER is the perfect fusion of Jane Austen's youthful zaniness, the mature Austen's social satire, and the comic mastery of Robert Rodi.
