For Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice fans everywhere, this is Mary Bennet's story . . . 'Will delight Pride and Prejudice fans' - Independent 'It's difficult not to race through those final pages' – Jo Baker, author of Longbourn In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Mary is the middle of the five Bennet girls and the plainest of them all, so what hope does she have? Prim and pious, with no redeeming features, she is unloved and seemingly unlovable. The Other Bennet Sister, though, shows another side to Mary. An introvert in a family of extroverts; a constant disappointment to her mother who values beauty above all else; fearful of her father’s sharp tongue; with little in common with her siblings – is it any wonder she turns to books for both company and guidance? And, if she finds her life lonely or lacking, that she determines to try harder at the one thing she can be: right. One by one, her sisters marry – Jane and Lizzy for love; Lydia for some semblance of respectability – but Mary, it seems, is destined to remain single and live out her life at Longbourn, at least until her father dies and the house is bequeathed to the reviled Mr Collins. But when that fateful day finally comes, she slowly discovers that perhaps there is hope for her, after all. Simultaneously a wonderfully warm homage to Jane Austen and a delightful new story in its own right, Janice Hadlow's The Other Bennet Sister is, at its heart, a life-affirming tale of a young woman finding her place in the world. Witty and uplifting, it will make you feel – and cheer – for Mary as you never have before.

It is a sad fact of life that if a young woman is unlucky enough to come into the world without expectations, she had better do all she can to ensure she is born beautiful.

Prim and pious, with no redeeming features, she is unloved and seemingly unlovable.The Other Bennet Sister, though, shows another side to Mary.

Pride and Prejudice novel by Jane Austen : is set in rural England in the early 19th century, and it follows the Bennet family, which includes five very different sisters. Mrs. Bennet is anxious to see all her daughters married, especially as the modest family estate is to be inherited by William Collins when Mr. Bennet dies. At a ball, the wealthy and newly arrived Charles Bingley takes an immediate interest in the eldest Bennet daughter, the beautiful and shy Jane. The encounter between his friend Darcy and Elizabeth is less cordial. Although Austen shows them intrigued by each other, she reverses the convention of first impressions: pride of rank and fortune and prejudice against the social inferiority of Elizabeth's family hold Darcy aloof, while Elizabeth is equally fired both by the pride of self-respect and by prejudice against Darcy's snobbery. The pompous Collins subsequently arrives, hoping to marry one of the Bennet sisters. Elizabeth, however, refuses his offer of marriage, and he instead becomes engaged to her friend Charlotte Lucas. During this time, Elizabeth encounters the charming George Wickham, a military officer. There is a mutual attraction between the two, and he informs her that Darcy has denied him his inheritance. After Bingley abruptly departs for London, Elizabeth's dislike of Darcy increases as she becomes convinced that he is discouraging Bingley's relationship with Jane. Darcy, however, has grown increasingly fond of Elizabeth, admiring her intelligence and vitality. While visiting the now-married Charlotte, Elizabeth sees Darcy, who professes his love for her and proposes. A surprised Elizabeth refuses his offer, and, when Darcy demands an explanation, she accuses him of breaking up Jane and Bingley. Darcy subsequently writes Elizabeth a letter in which he explains that he separated the couple largely because he did not believe Jane returned Bingley's affection. He also discloses that Wickham, after squandering his inheritance, tried to marry Darcy's then 15-year-old sister in an attempt to gain possession of her fortune. With these revelations, Elizabeth begins to see Darcy in a new light. Shortly thereafter the youngest Bennet sister, Lydia, elopes with Wickham. The news is met with great alarm by Elizabeth, since the scandalous affair--which is unlikely to end in marriage--could ruin the reputation of the other Bennet sisters. When she tells Darcy, he persuades Wickham to marry Lydia, offering him money. Despite Darcy's attempt to keep his intervention a secret, Elizabeth learns of his actions. At the encouragement of Darcy, Bingley subsequently returns, and he and Jane become engaged. Finally, Darcy proposes again to Elizabeth, who this time accepts.

Finally, Darcy proposes again to Elizabeth, who this time accepts.AnalysisThe work, which Austen initially titled First Impressions, is the second of four novels that Austen published during her lifetime. Although Pride and Prejudice has been criticized for its lack of historical context, the existence of its characters in a social bubble that is rarely penetrated by events beyond it is an accurate portrayal of the enclosed social world in which Austen lived. She depicted that world, in all its own narrow pride and prejudice, with unswerving accuracy and satire. At the same time, she placed at its centre, as both its prime actor and most perceptive critic, a character so well conceived and rendered that the reader cannot but be gripped by her story and wish for its happy dénouement. In the end, Austen's novel has remained popular largely because of Elizabeth-who was reportedly Austen's own favourite among all her heroines-and because of the enduring appeal to men and women alike of a well-told and potentially happily ending love story.Jane Austen, (born December 16, 1775, Steventon, Hampshire, England)

Everyone knows the story of Elizabeth and Jane Bennet in Pride and Prejudice. But what about their sister Mary? At the conclusion of Jane Austen's classic novel, Mary, bookish, awkward, and by all accounts, unmarriageable, is sentenced to a dull, provincial existence in the backwaters of Britain. Now, master storyteller Colleen McCullough rescues Mary from her dreary fate with The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet, a page-turning sequel set twenty years after Austen's novel closes. The story begins as the neglected Bennet sister is released from the stultifying duty of caring for her insufferable mother. Though many would call a woman of Mary's age a spinster, she has blossomed into a beauty to rival that of her famed sisters. Her violet eyes and perfect figure bewitch the eligible men in the neighborhood, but though her family urges her to marry, romance and frippery hold no attraction. Instead, she is determined to set off on an adventure of her own. Fired with zeal by the newspaper letters of the mysterious Argus, she resolves to publish a book about the plight of England's poor. Plunging from one predicament into another, Mary finds herself stumbling closer to long-buried secrets, unanticipated dangers, and unlooked-for romance. Meanwhile, the other dearly loved characters of Pride and Prejudice fret about the missing Mary while they contend with difficulties of their own. Darcy's political ambitions consume his ardor, and he bothers with Elizabeth only when the impropriety of her family seems to threaten his career. Lydia, wild and charming as ever, drinks and philanders her way into dire straits; Kitty, a young widow of means, occupies herself with gossip and shopping; and Jane, naïve and trusting as ever, spends her days ministering to her crop of boys and her adoring, if not entirely faithful, husband. Yet, with the shadowy and mysterious figure of DarcyÕs right-hand man, Ned Skinner, lurking at every corner, it is clear that all is not what it seems at idyllic Pemberley. As the many threads of McCulloughÕs masterful plot come together, shocking truths are revealed, love, both old and new, is tested, and all learn the value of true independence in a novel for every woman who has wanted to leave her mark on the world.

The course of true love never did run smooth. Elizabeth Bennet was reading her favourite Shakespeare when her sister Jane's letter came. To nurse her sister back to health, Elizabeth must travel to Netherfield Park – and see the man who gets under her skin like no other, Mr. Darcy. Mr. Darcy is dismayed at the arrival of the second oldest Bennet sister. He looks down on Elizabeth's family, but cannot deny the attraction of her lively mind and bright eyes. Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps. As Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are forced to spend time together at Netherfield Park, his rude behaviour grates on her almost as much as her playful impertinence intrigues him. But their greatest conflict is over how to properly appreciate Shakespeare. When Caroline Bingley proposes a light-hearted play reading in the library, the Bard's words uncover more feelings than any of the participants expect. Journeys end in lovers meeting? A trip to London was supposed to be a treat for Elizabeth, to visit her aunt and uncle and take her mind off things, especially one aggravating man. But when they attend a Shakespeare performance at the Theatre Royal, Elizabeth finds the box next to theirs occupied by the very man she has been trying to avoid…Mr. Darcy. **** Mr. Darcy Plays His Part is a sweet and clean romantic novella of 12,000 words (65 paperback pages), released on Midsummer Eve.

Omnibus edition - contains the first three books in the A Convenient Marriage series, a variation on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.Longbourn's Lark -Mary Bennet is used to being the overlooked Bennet sister, but when Colonel Fitzwilliam accidentally enters her life, everything changes.As cousin to Mr Darcy, Colonel Fitzwilliam knows what it’s like to feel invisible. His experiences at war have left him with one goal in mind: to marry, set up home and live in peace. When he witnesses the interaction between his cousin and Mary’s sister, Elizabeth, he is determined his own happiness will not be the only end in mind.However, with Mrs Bennet focused only on securing Longbourn by matching one of her daughters with the odious Mr Collins, will there be any chance of marrying for love, for anybody?Three Weeks in Kent -If her sister can marry well, and she can avoid Mr Collins, that is all the happiness Elizabeth Bennet can ask for. The first seems certain, with Mary and Colonel Fitzwilliam's wedding on the horizon. Alas, her own future is not yet close to settled, and she must endure three weeks in the company of Lady Catherine de Bourgh, who takes an immediate dislike to the elder of the two Bennet sisters.Fitzwilliam Darcy is happy to accompany his cousin's party to Rosings, although he tires of his aunt's scheming within hours. He determines on a solution that might offer both he and Elizabeth an escape from the machinations of their families, but can he convince her of its wisdom?With one couple matched and a wedding on the horizon, can a second romance manage to blossom under the interfering nose of Lady Catherine de Bourgh?Suitably Wed -Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet have decided to marry for the most pragmatic of reasons: so that they might each avoid being forced into less amiable matches. In Elizabeth’s case, the marriage is welcomed with open arms by her family, who happily forsake Mr Collins of Hunsford for Mr Darcy of Pemberley, yet in selecting Elizabeth for his bride, Darcy has succeeded in utterly alienating Lady Catherine de Bourgh. His cousins rally to his defence, but the marriage is beset by challenge, and once it becomes apparent that at least one party feels rather more strongly than they admitted, the practicality of the match is called into question. Can this couple acknowledge their true affection for each other once they are married, in a way they could not beforehand?Lizzy’s happy future with Mr Darcy is blighted only by the realisation that her sister, Jane, is miserable. Mr Bingley has suddenly departed Hertfordshire for London, and the match that seemed the most natural is all but abandoned. Elizabeth places the blame for her sister’s heartbreak on Mr Bingley’s shoulders, but is there another person behind the separation?

This is the annotated version of the original book. Actually this is the Summary Book of the Original Book. It consists of a 50% to 60% summary of the total book. The Brief Description is written as follows: - Bingley's friend, Mr Darcy, reputed to be twice as wealthy, is haughty and aloof, causing a decided dislike of him. He says he is connected to the Darcy family and claims Mr Darcy deprived him of occupation (a permanent position as a clergyman in a prosperous parish with good revenue) promised to him by Mr Darcy's late father. At the ball at Netherfield, Mr Darcy asks Elizabeth to dance, and, despite her vow never to dance with him, she accepts. Mrs Bennet hints loudly that she fully expects Jane and Bingley to become engaged, and the younger Bennet sisters expose the family to ridicule by their silliness. Elizabeth and her hosts are invited to Rosings Park, the imposing home of Lady Catherine de Bourgh, imperious patroness of Mr Collins and Mr Darcy's wealthy aunt. Lady Catherine expects Mr Darcy to marry her daughter, as planned in his childhood by his aunt and mother. Elizabeth realises the prevented engagement was to Jane and is horrified that Mr Darcy interfered. Mr Darcy brags about his success in separating Bingley and Jane and suggests that he had been kinder to Bingley than to himself. Later, Mr Darcy gives Elizabeth a letter, explaining that Wickham, the son of his late father's steward, had refused the living his father arranged for him and was instead given money for it. Mr Darcy also writes that he separated Jane and Bingley because due to Jane's reserved behaviour, he sincerely believed her indifferent to Bingley, and also because of the lack of propriety of the other members of her family. When Mr Darcy returns unexpectedly, he is exceedingly gracious and later invites Elizabeth and the Gardiners to meet his sister, and Mr Gardiner to go fishing. With some veneer of decency restored, Lydia visits the family and tells Elizabeth that Mr Darcy was at her and Wickham's wedding. Though Mr Darcy had sworn everyone involved to secrecy, Mrs Gardiner now feels obliged to inform Elizabeth that he secured the match, at great expense and trouble to himself. Lady Catherine, having heard rumours that Elizabeth intends to marry Mr Darcy, visits Elizabeth and demands she promise never to accept Mr Darcy's proposal. Elizabeth has difficulty in convincing her father that she is marrying for love, not position and wealth, but Mr Bennet is finally convinced.

In The Forgotten Sister, the drawing rooms of the Regency era are opened for us to view the world where Jane Austen left off when she wrote Pride and Prejudice. This novel is about Mary Bennet, the plain middle daughter, as she compares herself to her beautiful sisters, tries to get her father to notice her, falls in love, becomes a writer, and ultimately a champion for those less fortunate. Told in her revealing diary entries, we see Mary develop from a petulant teenager to a woman who learns that there is a wider world outside of the confines of Pemberley and the Bennet family. What makes The Forgotten Sister different from other books written about Pride and Prejudice is its depiction of the social history in Britain during the nineteenth century as seen through Mary's eyes.

When trauma cleaner Essie Pound makes a gruesome discovery in the derelict Edinburgh boarding house she is sent to clean, it brings her into contact with a young policewoman, Emily Noble, who has her own reasons to solve the case. As the two women embark on a journey into the heart of a forgotten family, the investigation prompts fragmented memories of their own traumatic histories – something Emily has spent a lifetime attempting to bury, and Essie a lifetime trying to lay bare.

From the family lives of the Bennet sisters and their characterful parents, to the hidden charm, grace, and elegance of the unflappable Mr. Darcy, it might seem as if fans of Austen's timeless classic, Pride & Prejudice, know all there is to know about this truly great novel. However, within the pages of this much-loved book, there are questions which call out for answers... the greatest of which are: what if everything we believed to be true about the Bennets and their fellow characters was, in fact, a veneer for something quite different? What if the behavior and intentions of the iconic sisters was all an act? And what if Mr. Darcy, Mr. Bingley, and all the other refined gentlemen of Pemberley and beyond were not the genteel and mannered men we saw them to be?Such questions, such mysteries, and such tantalizing possibilities form the backbone of True Love Never Fails, a daring and bold reimagining of Jane Austen's most famed and adored work. Throughout the pages of this stunning novel, which abounds in all that we fell in love with in the chapters of Pride & Prejudice - and much more besides - we're left second-guessing every motive, every word, and every eventuality we thought we knew so well. As readers, we're taken into the heart of a dazzling set of cliff-hangers and revealed truths... and we'll never be able to look our favorite characters in the same way again.Alongside the rollicking storyline that weaves its way through the moral mazes of 18th century English high society, True Love Never Fails introduces its readers to the elusive and serious Mary Bennet. She's a sister with a secret, and one who holds the key to the heart of the fun-loving Colonel Fitzwilliam, around whom a spiraling storyline forms. As revelation follows revelation, hearts will be broken, bonds will be formed, and the truth behind this timeless novel will be reimagined and revealed. Thanks to the astonishing deftness of the storytelling, and the author's keen eye for a twist and tantalizing details, readers will find themselves on a new ride through a familiar landscape that's as breathlessly romantic as it is captivating. From the first page you'll be hooked, and by the time you reach the the very last, you'll be calling out for more from this awe-inspiring retelling of Austen's masterpiece. Warning - Cliffhanger!
