Product description

Review

[A] novel that will delight Pride and Prejudice fans, Independent

Janice Hadlow has dusted down Mary, the ugly Bennet sister, and fashioned her into a heroine that even Miss Austen would approve of. A treat -- Daisy Goodwin, author of Victoria and The Fortune Hunter

Immersive and engaging, Guardian

It’s difficult not to race through those final pages -- Jo Baker, author of LongBourn and The Body Lies

This gorgeous book pays homage to Pride and Prejudice – and follows Mary Bennet, the overlooked middle Bennet sister. It’s a wonderfully warm, comforting read – perfect on a winter’s night, The Sun

I absolutely love this novel – as will any young woman who has felt herself plain, shy, bookish and crushed -- Amanda Craig, author of The Lie of the Land and The Golden Rule

Fans will need no persuasion . . . Worthy of any Austen heroine, Metro

Jane fans rejoice! I loved this thoroughly estimable, worthy homage to Austen. Exceptional storytelling and a true delight -- Helen Simonson, author of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand and The Summer Before the War

Puts Mary front and centre stage exploring why she was so heartbreakingly sidelined by Mrs Bennet and gives humour and sensitivity to the most overlooked of the sisters, Stylist magazine ― best books of 2020

Impeccably researched, this lifts Mary from obscurity, as she breaks out of her mother's world and follows her own path, Daily Mail --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

Janice Hadlow was born in London and studied history at university. After a few years working for the House of Commons, she joined the BBC and became a television producer. There, and later at Channel Four, she played an important role in popularising history on tv, making a number of highly regarded series, including Simon Schama’s History of Britain.

She went on to run two of the BBC’s major television channels, first as Controller of BBC 4 and then BBC 2, and she commissioned hits across a wide range of genres, from Great British Bake Off to the dramas Wolf Hall and Line of Duty. She was the recipient of a number of awards, and is a Fellow of the Royal Television Society, as well as of King’s College, University of London.

The Other Bennet Sister is her first novel although she has previously written one non fiction book, The Strangest Family, which told the story of the troubled relationship between George III and his wife and children.

She currently lives in Edinburgh with her husband and has two sons.
