Do you have bookworm or a Pride & Prejudice fan on your holiday shopping list? If so, I have a the perfect gift for you to give....The Pursuit of Mary Bennet by Pamela Mingle (to be released 11/26). Here are the details....
For most of her life, Mary, the serious and unpolished third daughter of
the Bennet family, has been overshadowed by her sisters—beautiful and
confdent Jane and Elizabeth, and firtatious and lighthearted Lydia and
Kitty. But with nearly all of her sisters married and gone from the
household, awkward, unrefned Mary has blossomed into an attractive young
woman with a quiet poise of her own.
When a very pregnant Lydia unexpectedly returns to the Bennet home and
scandalously announces she's left Wickham, Mary and Kitty are packed off
to visit Jane and her husband, Charles Bingley, in Derbyshire. Yearning
for the solitude of home, Mary is dismayed to discover Bingley's
handsome and eligible friend Henry Walsh everywhere she turns.
Unschooled in the game of love, Mary fnds Henry's warm attentions
confounding. Is his interest genuine or does she foolishly mistake
friendliness for something more? With her heart and her future at risk,
Mary must throw caution to the wind to fnd the truth—a journey of
discovery that will teach her surprising lessons about herself and the
desires of her heart.
This book is a must for Jane Austen fans. I know many, many die hard Austen fans who reread her books and simply can't get enough of her well written characters.
