To be terribly cliché, I’m going to borrow the box of chocolates analogy from Forrest Gump because I feel anthologies truly are like a box of chocolates! One box contains several petite, individual pieces that are distinctive, delectable, and filling if you eat more than one. Oh and yes… “you never know what you’re gonna get.” 😉 And that is why I love them so much! I was so happy to see that Elizabeth Adams put together an anthology of her own and I love that many of the stories focus on secondary characters from Pride and Prejudice. There are six short stories in total and they range from seven to eighteen pages in length, with the last story being the longest (thirty-seven pages).
I hope you find this breakdown helpful!
MISTRESS OF LONGBOURN
Type of Story: Sequel focusing on Charlotte Collins
My Thoughts: I never thought of what it would be like for Charlotte to return to Meryton as mistress of Longbourn! How her new position in her hometown might present some awkwardness, and how it felt to be moving into her best friend’s childhood home! I enjoyed Charlotte’s reflections, seeing her interact with her children, and her attempt to make a good impression with her neighbors.
