Precocious Young Lizzy Wanders Into the Future!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

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.

For those who are unfamiliar with The Bennet Wardrobe series, it is an inventive and engaging series filled with time-traveling Bennets, who are able to travel forward in time – thanks to the magical properties of a specially-crafted wardrobe that has been in the family since the late 1700s. In the first few books of the series there is a focus on Mary, Kitty, and Lydia Bennet and what happens to them post Pride and Prejudice.  However, this two-part novella focuses more on Elizabeth and features two significant times in her life.

Note: While the Author’s Preface and Prologue impart some important details of the events that proceed this story, it is recommended that readers read The Keeper: Mary Bennet’s Extraordinary Adventure and Henry Fitzwilliam’s War prior to reading The Exile: Kitty Bennet and the Belle Époque.

Mr. Jacobson seeks to find new potential and purpose for these characters, and thanks to The Bennet Wardrobe – a special and mystical time-travel device that allows only those with the Bennet bloodline to travel into the future – Jane Austen’s characters could discover their destinies in future times and possibilities.

In continuation of his incredibly inventive and engaging Austenesque time travel/time slip series – The Bennet Wardrobe, Don Jacobson prefaces the next novel installment, The Exile: Kitty Bennet and the Belle Époque, with a novella that introduces a new character and hero – Henry Fitzwiliam. Since there is much to learn and understand about both the Bennet Wardrobe and the Bennet family lineage, I’d recommend reading The Keeper: Mary Bennet’s Extraordinary Journey before reading this book in the series. For those who have not had the pleasure of reading any of the books in this series yet, it focuses on the Bennet family and their specially-crafted wardrobe with mystical properties that allow members of the Bennet blood line to travel into various future times (similar to a Tardis or a certain custom-modified of DeLorean). 🙂 Continue reading »
