Harriet: A Jane Austen Variation is a work of fiction in the literary and dramatic subgenres. It is intended for the general reading audience and was penned by author Alice McVeigh. Taking on the Austen classic novel, Emma, this second work by the author in her Austen-themed series follows the character of Harriet Smith, protégé to Emma, who shares the narration of events with the elusive Jane Fairfax. What results is a fresh perspective on the characters, relationships, and situations of the classic tale that is sure to put a smile on the face of any Austen aficionado who picks up a copy.
Author Alice McVeigh has crafted a highly engrossing work of fiction that really captures the spirit of Austen and celebrates all the best qualities of her work from new and innovative angles. One feature that I especially enjoyed during my reading experience was McVeigh’s sense of period, which adds new details to the imagination and brings history to life, perhaps even more so than Austen did since she is writing with readers of our time period in mind. This enables her to use a guiding hand to add clarity to some of the social graces and complications of the original story whilst also creating innovative new twists and surprises that fit perfectly but are wholly unexpected. If you think you know Emma, think again, and enjoy reading Harriet: A Jane Austen Variation. A highly recommended read for fans of classic literature and lovingly crafted dramas with plenty of twists and turns.
