LONGBOURN AND BEYOND

posted in: Books | 0

The Bennets and their extended family find themselves embroiled in a variety of fascinating situations, involving the likes of Miss Austen’s original characters of Lady Catherine de Bourgh, Mr Collins and Colonel Fitzwilliam, and introducing newcomers such as the handsome, eligible bachelor, Dr Edward Hodges, and the bearded artist, Mr David King.

Will Mary and Kitty, the remaining Bennet girls, each find compatible husbands for themselves? What will happen to change the lives of both Georgiana Darcy and Anne de Bourgh?

“This octet should be an irresistible deal for any avid fan of Pride and Prejudice , comprising all of Margaret Lynette Sharp’s creative ventures into an alternate universe Longbourn.”

“I cannot find the words to describe how much I enjoyed this book. It was like reading book 2 of Pride and Prejudice, following all the sisters and other family and friends after Elizabeth and Janes weddings. It was so well written with the same language and rhetoric, even using the same turn of phrases. Without giving too much away I had to smile when Lady Catherine de Burgh took Kitty for a walk in the ‘small shrubbery’ for a little talk! I am sure I was smiling all the way through the book.”

Note: This novel-length collection of related short stories, including the best-seller, ‘Longbourn Revisited’, is the brainchild of award-winning Australian author Margaret Lynette Sharp, for the especial enjoyment of lovers of Jane Austen Fan Fiction.
