To review

Oh this was delightful, I do love variations, they are so much fun! I used to read a lot and when this one came up, yes at once.

Mary has grown a bit since PP, less preachy, more coming into her own. But then it is just she and Kitty left. Maybe Mary should get married? So Lizzy invites her to Pemberley.

When someone showed up I just did not know, but at the end, yes, absolutely perfect, and I was happy for her.

As for the Burghs, as annoying as always.

Good fun :D

The narrator did so well with her different voices. Annoying Lady Catherine, sarcastic Lizzy, flighty Kitty. It really got me into the feel of the story.

A great listen

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...
