"Mary had made the mistake of inheriting neither the looks nor the charm shared by all other female members of the Bennet family."
For readers and admirers of Jane Austen's 'Pride & Prejudice' a new story about the middle sister - Mary. This young lady was often overlooked by her own family in the original story due to her pious and rather boring personality. She was not as pretty as her four sisters which made her less important in her mothers continual ambition for successful marriages for her five daughters. With her quiet, less interesting character Mary was not going to be involved in any scandal nor be the centre of happy news. She may resign herself to remaining single, but what will happen when the time arrives when her dear father dies and Mr. Collins will finally inherit Longbourn? In this delightful new story by Janice Hadlow, Mary does takes centre stage at last, and we learn what her future holds.
