categories: Book, Jane Austen, Jane Austen Sequels, Historical Fiction, Historical Romance, Miss Mary King, Elizabeth Bennet, Regency Romance, Historical Fiction Classic, Pride and Prejudice




P. O. Dixon

about this book: Whenever I read Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, the following question always springs to mind: Had Miss Elizabeth Bennet's father discovered the reason for Miss Mary King's swift departure to Liverpool to live with her uncle, could he have prevented Elizabeth's sister Lydia's scandalous elopement?

Little is known about what happened between Miss King and the dashing Lieutenant George Wickham—until now.

Will Mary heed her own father's advice to be wary of the officer's charms or does she follow her heart and surrender to Wickham's power?

What Readers Say:

• "I loved how this story was told from a less popular character and that it perfectly matched my own imaginings of the personality of Mary King. I could relate to her feeling of self consciousness and defeatist jealousy, while at the same time remember the oh so blinding effects of infatuation and love." — Erlynn, Books Hug Back

• "I enjoyed this book. I liked the echoes of events from Pride and Prejudice in it, such as Wickham's visit to Mary, which contrasts sharply with Darcy's visit to Elizabeth at Hunsford, and highlights just how different they were as men; Wickham is NO gentleman!" — Ceri, Goodreads User
