Without a Paddle..Austen Style
Lady Vernon and Her Daughter Authors

Lady Vernon

Jane Rubino and Caitlen Rubino-Bradway co-authored Lady Vernon and Her Daughter, a vivid and richly developed novel transforming Jane Austen's novella Lady Susan. With wit and warmth reminiscent of Austen's greatest works, this mother-daughter writing team brings to life a time and place where love is hindered by misunderstanding, where marriage can never be entirely isolated from money- yet where romance somehow carries the day.  A Q&A and book signing will follow.
