EMMY and BAFTA-win­ning writer An­drew Davies brings Jane Austen’s un­fin­ished last novel vividly to life. San­di­ton’s a place that’s chang­ing fast. This once sleepy fish­ing vil­lage is trans­form­ing into a fash­ion­able spa re­sort.

Chang­ing along­side it is the im­pul­sive and un­con­ven­tional Char­lotte Hey­wood (Rose Williams, pic­tured), who swaps her quiet ru­ral home for the in­trigues and dal­liances of a sea­side town on the make. The plot twists and turns as it ex­poses the hid­den agen­das of char­ac­ters whose for­tunes de­pend on San­di­ton’s com­mer­cial suc­cess.

Peo­ple such as the vi­sion­ary en­tre­pre­neur Tom Parker, mixed-race heiress Miss Lambe, and charis­matic but com­pli­cated Sid­ney Parker. Fol­low Char­lotte’s jour­ney to dis­cover her­self – and find love on her own terms.
