The official TV tie-in based on the ITV drama scripted by Andrew Davies
The official fiction companion to ITV's hotly anticipated new drama, Sanditon tells the tale of Jane Austen's unfinished novel, adapted for television by Emmy and BAFTA-Award winning writer Andrew Davies and brought to the page by Kate Riordan.
Produced by Red Planet Pictures, ITV's Sanditon series tells the story of the joyously impulsive, spirited and unconventional Charlotte Heywood and her spiky relationship with the humorous, charming and slightly wild Sidney Parker. When a chance accident transports her from her rural hometown of Willingden to the would-be coastal resort of Sanditon, it exposes Charlotte to the intrigues and dalliances of a seaside town on the make, and the characters whose fortunes depend on its commercial success.
