Overview

A Match for Mary Bennet: Can a Serious Young Lady Ever Find Her Way to Love? by Eucharista Ward

A unique and inspirational Pride and Prejudice sequel that will resonate with all readers who can relate to Mary Bennet's determination to live according to God's wishes

Written by a Franciscan nun, this is a sympathetic tale of the middle Bennet sister from Pride and Prejudice. Pious Mary Bennet tries to do her duty in the world as she thinks God envisions it.

Initially believing (mistakenly) that her sister Elizabeth married well only in order to provide for her sisters, Mary is happy to be relieved of the obligation to marry at all so that she can continue her faithful works.

But she begins to have second thoughts after further studying marriage through her sisters' experiences as well as spending time with two young men. One is a splendid young buck whose determined courtship must have ulterior motives; the other is a kindly, serious young clergyman whose friendship Mary values more and more. One day she realizes that God very much made man and woman to be together...but which is the man for her?

I loved this book. So like Jane Austin in the writing. The characters were much the same as the original Pride and Prejudice, just with even more depth, especially the main focus of the book, Mary Bennett. I just finished another Mary Bennett sequel that was not as pleasing as this one.

In general I found this one of the more enjoyable Jane Austen spin-offs. Not wishing to give a spoiler, I'll just say the only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I do think the drama in Mary's choice between two suitors is a little far fetched, but that wouldn't stop me from recommending this book.
