Lizzy Bennet married Mr. Darcy, Jane Bennet married Mr. Bingley—but what became of the middle daughter, Mary? Readers of Pride and Prejudice will remember that there were five Bennet sisters. Now, twenty years on, Jane has a happy marriage and large family; Lizzy and Mr. Darcy now have a formidable social reputation; Lydia has a reputation of quite another kind; Kitty is much in demand in London’s parlors and ballrooms; but what of Mary? Mary is quietly celebrating her independence, having nursed her ailing mother for many years. She decides to write a book to bring the plight of the poor to everyone’s attention. But with more resolve than experience as she sets out to travel around the country, it’s not only her family who are concerned about her.

“A gold star for going outside the bounds of what is normal for an Austen sequel…[McCullough] finishes in true Pride and Prejudice style. With a wedding, of course.”
