Jane Austen’s classic novel chronicles the events in the lives of the Bennet family. Take a family with five unmarried daughters and a lack of wealth, throw in a new wealthy neighbor or two, plus a whole regiment of soldiers in town, and add a heaping spoonful of pride and a pinch of prejudice. Mix it all together and you get a story full of tears and laughter, embarrassment and pride, and, of course, love. (Summary by Annie Coleman)

Sanditon is the last novel Jane Austen began before she died. Sadly, she was never able to finish it.

It was originally aired on ITV in Britain, and moved to the US on PBS Masterpiece. 8 episodes was not enough and now we wait, beg and pray for more. This podcast is all things Sanditon, referencing Sanditon a ...
