4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading
This story concentrates mostly on Mary, the 'Plain Jane' poor- musician - boring - old - maid Bennett sister, and unfolds her life, making her a far more interesting, talented and gentle creature than she appeared to be in 'Pride and Prejudice', I have to say that some of the American expressions and spellings jarred a little, but this was an enjoyable read, well written...

What will happen now that Mr. Bennett has died? The story concentrates on Mary Bennet which is a good idea, but a lot of the plot is lifted from "Jane Eyre". Did she really think people would not notice? Zero points for originality! The Americanisms are also very irritating. There are now hundreds of Jane Austen spinoffs and sequels and I have not yet found...

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner., 21 Jan 2014

Just like the "The Darcys of Pemberley", I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was sorry to finish it and wished there could have been another one but I suppose there is a limit to how far the story of the Bennett family can go.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to the Pride and Prejudice series, 23 May 2014
By

A good story completing the progress of the Bennet girls into marriage. As a novel of the Pride and Prejudice series, it would be better written in English, as Austen's novels, rather than American English. To read such as "she once again chose", "honor" and other Americanisms spoilt my enjoyment by bringing me out of the era of the novel into the present day, as I wanted to correct them. However, worth buying and it was written such that I fell for Mary quite early on in the novel! Furthermore, I shall continue to read Ms Winslow's future novels in this era.
