A tale of love and marriage, society balls and courtship, class and a touch of scandal, Pamela Mingle's The Pursuit of Mary Bennet is a fresh take on one of the most beloved novels of all time, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

Growing up with four extraordinary sisters—beautiful and confident Jane and Elizabeth, and flirtatious and lighthearted Lydia and Kitty—wasn't easy for an awkward bookworm like Mary Bennet. But with nearly all of her sisters married and gone from the household, the unrefined Mary has transformed into an attractive and eligible young woman in her own right.

When another scandal involving Lydia and Wickham threatens the Bennet house, Mary and Kitty are packed off to visit Jane and her husband, Charles Bingley, where they meet the dashing Henry Walsh. Eager and naïve, Mary is confused by Henry's attentions, even as she finds herself drawing closer to him. Could this really be love—or the notions of a foolish girl unschooled in the art of romance and flirtation?

Pamela Mingle is the author ofKissing Shakespeare, a time-travel romance for young adults set in Elizabethan England. She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, Pikes Peak Writers, Romance Writers of America, and the Jane Austen Society of North America.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Pursuit of Mary Bennet: A Pride & Prejudice Novel This was a really good book that revolves around Mary Bennet and her journey to find her happily ever after. The book takes place three years after Pride & Prejudice ends and includes all 5 sisters throughout giving readers glimpses into how Lizzy & Darcy, Jane & Bingley, and Lydia & Wickham are doing. Kitty also has a role in this book and we get to see her quest for love as well as Mary's durring this book. I felt the author did a really good job of writing Mary so the reader would connect with her. Overall I enjoyed this book and thought it had a good ending.
