I love Elizabeth Darcy (nee Bennet) - don't get me wrong. But for some reason the little-mentioned Mary Bennet fascinates me. In this sequel to P&P, Mary is invited to stay with cousins and meets two different gentlemen in whom she develops an interest.
Lydia Wickham also appears, but it is definitely Mary's story. Without giving away too much, she now takes herself a little less seriously than when all the girls were together at Longbourn (or in modern-day terms; she's gotten over herself). While still serious, she is more interested in people and less in preaching.
The story was well-written and entertaining - nowhere near as typo-riddled as so many Kindle books appear to be. If this author writes any further P&P stories, I will definitely buy. I'd love to see one by this author concerning Colonel Fitzwilliam - someone that amiable and gentlemanly needs his own love story, even though he needs to marry his fortune.
Well done to the author.
