An anthology of the winning entries for the Jane Austen Short Story Award

Two hundred years ago, Jane Austen-- traumatized by her parents' decision to give up the rectory in Hampshire where she grew up, and unable to write for a decade--accepted her brother Edward's offer of a permanent home in his Chawton House estate. It was there that she picked up her pen once again . . . and gave the world some of themost beloved and enduring novels ever written.

The Jane Austen Short Story Competition celebrates the immortal author and her works, and the blessed home that afforded her the peace and security to create them. Judged and chosen by Sarah Waters, bestsellingauthor of Tipping the Velvet and Fingersmith, Dancing with Mr. Darcy includes the winning selection and nineteen runners-up, as well as introductions from Waters and Rebecca Smith, the great-great-great-great-great niece of Jane Austen.
