About Author

Catherine Anne Austen Hubback

Catherine Anne Hubback, the niece of renowned novelist Jane Austen, led a challenging life as an English novelist. After her husband's institutionalization, she turned to writing fiction to support herself and her three sons. Drawing inspiration from her aunt's unfinished works, she completed "The Younger Sister" in 1850, a continuation of Jane Austen's "The Watsons." Over the next thirteen years, Hubback wrote nine more novels. In 1870, she immigrated to California, settling in Oakland with her second son. However, her novels, which were once popular, have now fallen into obscurity and are difficult to find. Hubback's most notable work is "The Younger Sister." Sadly, she passed away in Gainesville, Virginia, in 1877 due to pneumonia. Although her novels are rarely read today, her contribution to the literary world and her connection to Jane Austen remain a part of her legacy.
