Description
As she did with Cassandra and Jane, Jill Pitkeathley illuminates the life of the ever-fascinating Jane Austen through her relationships—in this instance her free-spirited cousin Betsy, who became the Countess Eliza de Feuillide. Outrageous, precocious, and a well-known flirt, she has an unquenchable thirst for life. Rumored to have been born of a mad love affair between her mother and the great Warren Hastings of the East India Company, Eliza sees the world as her playground, filled with grand galas, theater, and romance. It is this passionate spirit that she brings to a simple English country parsonage to influence the life, the work, and the world of her unsuspecting cousin Jane.

"Jane Austen, along with her family, once again feature prominently in Pitkeathley's latest romantic, meticulously researched period melodrama. This time around, Austen's glamorous cousin Countess Eliza de Feuillide (once known as simply Betsy) takes center stage. Suggesting that Eliza made a significant impression on Jane's development as an author, Pitkeathley depicts a spirited woman who certainly made an impact on the entire Austen clan, as well as stole her share of hearts, including her first husband Jean Capot, the Comte de Feuillide, who was guillotined in 1794. Pitkeathley explores several impressions of Eliza, who ultimately married Jane's brother Henry, through the various perspectives Austen family members."—Publishers Weekly
