Books & Screenplays

Katherine’s desire to read ‘just one more’ Jane Austen novel led to her own Regency love story — and the best novel she’s written yet.

Ann Marshal has spent the first nineteen years of her life happily living in a small village with her father, country gentleman Julian. Her idyllic existence is upended, however, when she discovers she must spend six months in London, learning the one lesson her father has never been able to teach her: how to be a society lady.

Before long Ann learns a shocking secret: Julian is not her father, only her guardian. Instead, she is heir to an enormous fortune and the ‘belle of London’ — with beaus aplenty seeking her hand and her fortune.

As Ann navigates this new world, she discovers how to sidestep both conventionality and momentary infatuation, and ultimately bet all her heart on a greater love that could actually last a lifetime.

More than just a fulfilling love story, Society & Civility examines identity and how we can grow to become people worthy of the love we so ardently desire.
