Esta novela epistolar, escrita probablemente en 1794, narra los planes de la protagonista, la recientemente viuda lady Susan, para encontrar un nuevo marido, a la vez que intenta casar a su hija de dieciséis años. Austen se sirve de este género para construir una obra en donde las distintas cartas se engarzan como piezas de un rompecabezas hasta completar ante los ojos del lector una historia de pequeñas intrigas. La obra subvierte todas las normas de la novela romántica: lady Susan tiene un papel activo; no sólo es hermosa, sino también inteligente e ingeniosa, y sus pretendientes son significativamente más jóvenes que ella. Edición con ilustraciones de Javier Olivares.
