TYPE OF AUSTENESQUE NOVEL: Pride and Prejudice Sequel, Minor Character
TIME FRAME: Around 4 years after the close of Pride and Prejudice
Lady Catherine, who lost her daughter Anne to consumption several years ago, has decided (now that she is out of deep mourning) to rejoin society and take part of the London Season. She has also decided that Georgiana should come with her and be launched into society because “no female in [her] family has married past their twenty-first year.” And since Elizabeth is in the midst of a difficult second pregnancy, Georgiana is sent off to London to make her curtsey and achieve a splendid match. But Georgiana’s feelings about love and marriage are conflicted. Her heart was touched by Wickham and she still cherishes the remembrance of him. Can she find love again? And should she just do her duty and accept any suitor Lady Catherine approves of or should she follow her heart instead?
