Note: Lizzy Bennet Meets the Countess is the fourth installment in The Bennet Wardrobe series, and it is recommended that readers read The Keeper: Mary Bennet’s Extraordinary Adventure, Henry Fitzwilliam’s War, and The Exile: Kitty Bennet and the Belle Époque prior to reading the Lizzy Bennet Meets the Countess.
