    Deception by Joan Aiken (nessreader)
    nessreader: Both are Austen pastiches, with nods to JA (Deception starts from the school JA attended in real life; Ladysmead includes Mrs Norris from Mansfield Pk) and both are unromantic novels about intelligent spinsters with more status than money.

Gillespie has written a couple of Austen sequels - Uninvited Guests was about Northanger Abbey, and Teverton Hall, Pride and Prejudice.

This early 19th century-set story, populated by the impoverished genteel, has Mrs Norris and Maria (Mansfield Park) as background characters.

It's clearly inspired by Austen in setting and the way the heroine is focussed on autonomy rather than romance reminds me of Austen, too.

The romance element seems a minor part of the story, more minor than in many Austen sequels. ( )
