Those Pride and Prejudice fans who like an alternate universe that differs significantly from canon, and who like reading about P&P secondary characters will like this well-written story.
As we begin, Mary is planning her wedding to Mr. Michaels, the steward at the
once-great Rosings Park. Mary respects Mr. Michaels. She believes his feelings are similar to hers.
Their marriage will be practical, dependable, dull and unappreciated.
Mary’s upbringing has taught her to expect nothing else but her heart envies her sisters
Elizabeth and Lydia whose love stories are told in the first two books of this series.
Elizabeth has married Mr. Darcy. Lydia was abandoned by all her family except the
Darcys who sponsored her at a strict school for wayward girls where she eventually met the love of her life.
Love is no respecter of age or practicality
Neither morality: unabashed
She enters where she will
Unheeding that her immortal fires
Burn up human hearts...
Lady Catherine has bankrupted the estate, which has passed to Colonel Fitzwilliam
after the death of Anne de Bourgh. Mr. Michaels has developed a long-term plan for
cost-cutting and rebuilding. The Colonel, also an unappreciated middle child,
has no training, no experience, no feeling for managing an estate; especially not a bankrupt estate.
The estate problems are further complicated by Lady Catherine’s increasing dementia.
Colonel Fitzwilliam drastically increases his alcohol consumption. His downward spiral is slowed
when he encounters Mary Bennet in the woods and begins to see her nymph-like qualities.
Mary is living at the Collins’ parsonage until her marriage but she is abused by Mr. Collins.
The Colonel insists she move to Rosings to assist with management of the house and Lady Catherine.
Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable. ~ L. Frank Baum
Lady Catherine, in a moment of delusion, creates a situation resulting in two deaths and many injuries.
Mary, although injured herself, must pull the household together, tend to the injured and arrange the funerals.
Her reputation suffers from her care of an injured man.
Charlotte is a very unlikeable character here; I could barely recognize her.
I also thought the ultimate solution for Lady Catherine should have been shown, not just planned.
The story has no epilogue so a few loose ends still exist. Since this is the third of three stories,
a look back from ten years in the future would have been more satisfying.
Overall – a very good story ending with a Mary Bennet who is still practical and dependable
but not dull and definitely not unappreciated!
I'm not romantic; I'm very practical. There are lots of fish in the sea; so whoever gets struck with your rod,
one is as good as another. ~ Twinkle Khanna
