Diana Birchall defends Mrs. Elton

...can't imagine why she'd want to, but whatever.

The Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) has posted the second story from their collection of Annual General Meeting Publication fanfics, and it's an Emma story called "In Defense of Mrs. Elton", by Diana Birchall. I haven't read any of Ms. Birchall's published Austen continuations (she's written more than one, but I was not impressed by the plot summaries of Mrs. Darcy's Dilemma), but I do commend her for being the author of Mrs. Elton in America: The Compleat Mrs. Elton. Sure, the plot sounds ridiculous, and the cover art features a woman dressed in clothes that are about eighty years off, but I can't help but grin at the idea of Mrs. Elton in the Wild West.
