If you love Jane Austen, have you read anything by Maria Edgeworth?

I found a copy of Helen in a secondhand bookshop and I'm really enjoying it. Apparently Maria Edgeworth was a massively successful author who was read by JA and gets a mention in Northanger Abbey - can't believe that I've not read anything by her before.

I'm a huge JA fan but have never heard of Maria Edgeworth. Thanks for the tip! Just had a quick look and her books are free on Kindle so I'll download Helen and see what I think!

Ooh - i'll have a look on Kindle and see what else of hers I can find. Thanks.

I read, 'Castle Rackrent' but found it all rather exhausting! Will give, 'Helen' a go.
