Anne de Bourgh, pale, sickly, and rich, with a desirable inheritance and the promise of a brilliant betrothal, seemed to have a blessed future ahead of her. Or at least she did until Miss Elizabeth Bennet walked into her life and changed everything. With no expected betrothal, no marriage prospects, indifferent health, and her mother’s severely disappointed hopes Anne is left wondering what path her future will take… Will her mother find another auspicious suitor for her to marry? Will she be forced to settle for a marriage of convenience? Or will she find a chance of romance?
While there are many Pride and Prejudice sequels that share what becomes of Georgiana Darcy, Kitty Bennet, and Mary Bennet, Shannon Winslow has instead decided to focus her lens on some secondary characters that are not usually given a large spotlight (although one of them often demands to have her share of it!) In this charming sequel, readers will see parts of Pride and Prejudice from the point-of-views of Anne de Bourgh, Lady Catherine, Charlotte Collins, and Mrs. Jenkinson, as well as learn what becomes of them all after the close of Jane Austen’s beloved tale. Readers will not only be privy to the astute observations and inner thoughts of these ladies, but also witness their private feelings and emotions.
