Overview

Pride and Prejudice's Mary Bennet gets her own story...

The third of five daughters, Miss Mary Bennet is a rather unremarkable girl. With her countenance being somewhere between plain and pretty and in possession of no great accomplishments, few expect the third Bennet daughter to attract a respectable man. But although she is shy and would much prefer to keep her nose stuck in a book, Mary is uncertain she wants to meekly follow the path to spinsterhood set before her.

Determined that Mary should have a chance at happiness, the elder Bennet sisters concoct a plan. Lizzy invites Mary to visit at Pemberley, hoping to give her sister a place to grow and make new acquaintances. But it is only when Mary strikes out independently that she can attempt to become accomplished in her own right. And in a family renowned for its remarkable Misses, Mary Bennet may turn out to be the most wholly unexpected of them all...

I enjoyed Miss Mary character change. Finally taking control of her life and falling in love with Mr. Aikens. I love how he pursued her and defended her. It took awhile for Mary to finally reach her new independent self. It reminded me of the caterpillar's change to a beautifull butterfly.

I love Mr. Aiken and Mary Bennet chemistry.Mr. Aiken has this handsome outgoing character of country man. He amazed me with his charm of non-stop talking about his horse.And love this sister bond how Lizzy try to match make her sister, Mary with Mr. Aiken. Aww, how I wish the story didn't have to end so soon. I love the Bennet's sisters.

With Mary Bennet starting to feel dissatisfied with her life, Jane and Elizabeth decide it time for her to leave Longbourn and stay at Pemberley for a long visit. But the fates intervene and with Mary still unsure who she is decides to take up and offer that would give her independence from the other Bennets. A very enjoyable sequel, with a lovely writing style. Again I like this Mary and the introduction of a new character.

While the premise is interesting, it is poorly executing. Mary Bennet's character is developed in an interesting way, but the plot, behavior of the other characters, are presented poorly. The romantic interest for Mary Bennet has the makings of a good character, but is introduced so fleetingly and abruptly that he's just a footnote shoehorned into the plot.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Mary come into her own. Her candidness made me chuckle. Mr. Aiken was a surprising suitor for her, but I enjoyed the way they complimented each orher. Great clean P &P fun!
