    If you’re a Jane Austen fan, you’ll enjoy Emily Eden’s comic novels of manners, The Semi-Detached House (1859), and The Semi-Attached Couple (1860). At the opening of The Semi-Detached House, the beautiful (but rather petulant) Lady Blanche Chester, newly married and pregnant, is being installed in a suburban house while her husband is away. Her encounters with her neighbors, and the intrigues of the neighborhood, soon come to absorb and annoy her.

    Join 19th-century bibliophile, Kate Howe, for a lively discussion.
