For fans of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Janice Hadlow’s The Other Bennet Sister tells Mary’s story …
It is a sad fact of life that if a young woman is unlucky enough to come into the world without expectations, she had better do all she can to ensure she is born beautiful. To be handsome and poor is misfortune enough; but to be both plain and penniless is a hard fate indeed.
New from Pan Macmillan, a beautiful collection for Jane Austen fans.
‘Austen’s novels have a universal appeal and speak as powerfully today as they did when they were first published.’
