Product description

Review

[A] novel that will delight Pride and Prejudice fans ― Independent

Janice Hadlow has dusted down Mary, the ugly Bennet sister, and fashioned her into a heroine that even Miss Austen would approve of. A treat -- Daisy Goodwin, author of Victoria and The Fortune Hunter

Immersive and engaging ― Guardian

It’s difficult not to race through those final pages -- Jo Baker, author of LongBourn and The Body Lies

This gorgeous book pays homage to Pride and Prejudice – and follows Mary Bennet, the overlooked middle Bennet sister. It’s a wonderfully warm, comforting read – perfect on a winter’s night ― The Sun

I absolutely love this novel – as will any young woman who has felt herself plain, shy, bookish and crushed -- Amanda Craig, author of The Lie of the Land and The Golden Rule

Fans will need no persuasion . . . Worthy of any Austen heroine ― Metro

Jane fans rejoice! I loved this thoroughly estimable, worthy homage to Austen. Exceptional storytelling and a true delight -- Helen Simonson, author of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand and The Summer Before the War

Puts Mary front and centre stage exploring why she was so heartbreakingly sidelined by Mrs Bennet and gives humour and sensitivity to the most overlooked of the sisters ― Stylist magazine ― best books of 2020

Impeccably researched, this lifts Mary from obscurity, as she breaks out of her mother's world and follows her own path ― Daily Mail

A wonderful, absorbing, accomplished book. I loved it -- Stephanie Butland, author of Lost for Words and The Woman in the Photograph

Entertaining and thoroughly engrossing ― Kirkus starred review

Vivid and convincing ― Sydney Morning Herald

Equal to the best Austen spin-offs, including Jo Baker’s Longbourn, this will delight Janeites as well as lovers of nuanced female coming-of-age tales -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

Review

For Jane Austen and <i>Pride and Prejudice</i> fans everywhere, this is Mary Bennet's story.
