Young Jane - or Jenny, as she was known - is a girl with a head full of questions that no one seems able to answer. But the sudden arrival of her worldly-wise cousin, Eliza, to the parsonage in rural Hampshire brings Jenny some of the answers she is seeking and provides the germ of an idea...Building on the close relationship between Jane and her older sister, Cassandra, and drawing on characters and incidents from such masterpieces as "Pride and Prejudice" and "Sense and Sensibility", "Cassandra's Sister" creates a moving portrait of one of the world's greatest and best loved writers.
