This is a very interesting sequel to P&P, however, it borrows most of the story from Jane Eyre. Jane Eyre was also a governness who had similar tensions with her employer - Mr. Rochester. They had an ambivalent work relationship. Jane Eyre also had a similar ball & a past troubled relationship... The author did spin a very entertaining sequel using the "plain" Mary as the heroine. I think the author should have mentioned the Jane Eyre connection when giving credits for this work since it is virtually the same story. Ms. Winslow did a nice job tying the pieces of the 2 novels together.

Superb! Shannon Winslow's excellent understanding of Jane Austen's characters and stories reflect in her knowledgeable continuations of Pride and Prejudice.  A pleasure to read accurate representations of life style, dialogue and spiritual aspects others have missed.  Return to Longbourn paints a realistic and appealing picture of Mary that includes authentic character development and romantic twists enough to please this reader.   I enjoyed Shannon's picturing Mary as an independent and capable young woman with skills and fortitude as we'd expect, but also harbours unexpectedly romantic responses.  The conflicts and confusion of the story were both intriguing and suspenseful.  No spoilers here; don't worry. My interest and emotions were fully engaged.  Would I recommend this book?  In a minute!  Grab a copy and settle in for a read that will capture you right through to its deliteful conclusion. Thank you, Shannon, for another Pride and Prejudice reading treat!

An outstanding next chapter to Shannon Winslow's, Darcys of Pemberely and the continuing story of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. For Jane Austen fans this book is an exciting continuation of Pride and Prejudice and a catching up with old friends.
