Lady Susan is a novel by Jane Austen, first published posthumously in 1871, although it was written in 1794. The book tells the story of the beautiful, flirtatious widow, Lady Susan Vernon, who manipulates and deceives those around her to suit her own desires. She goes to stay with her brother and sister-in-law Catherine, who dislikes Lady Susan for previously trying to prevent her marriage to Susan's brother, Charles. Once there, she starts to stir up trouble by flirting with Catherine's brother Reginald. Alongside this is Frederica, Lady Susan's sixteen year old daughter, who is railing against her arranged marriage to a man she hates. An unusual book for its time, with the lead character being a selfish woman who has little to no scruples and who shows no shame for a relationship she has with a married man. In addition, and again unusual, the men she has relationships with are younger than her.

This book has 23,139 words, 55 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1871.
