When a coach accident introduces Charlotte to the Parker family, she quickly seizes the opportunity to throw herself into the adventure she has craved all her life by returning with them to the developing seaside resort of Sanditon. Charlotte, however, soon discovers that the inhabitants of the town behave in curious and unpredictable ways that she could never have imagined.
Charlotte Heywood, a spirited and impulsive woman who moves from her rural hometown to Sanditon, a fishing village trying to reinvent itself as a seaside resort, is exposed to its 'intrigues and dalliances' and the locals whose fortunes depend on Sanditon's commercial success in a story of love and self-discovery in the 19th century. Inspired by Jane Austen's unfinished final novel of the same name.
