As the title tells us, Susan is a prequel to Jane Austen’s Lady Susan. In the prequel, Susan is a girl of sixteen and we begin to see her life as it was before she develops into the character of Lady Susan. She persuades the local squire to put on a play which leads to unexpected consequences. The style of Jane Austen bursts from this book, and the reader quickly gets behind the heroine, with her strong points and her flaws. I read this book as a standalone which included some well-loved characters I had already met from previous Austen works. Susan is a precocious girl who draws the reader into the novel and makes us laugh. She is clever and, even at this young age, tends towards manipulation and making use of her many attractions to men. As with Jane Austen, Alice McVeigh’s perceptions of characters are spot on. It is an entertaining read and if you are into regency, this is a book that could help you to escape the covid blues.
