Charlotte married Mr Collins not out of love but out of a need for security This story picks up on these characters from Pride and Prejudice and tells us what happened next I never usually pick up book written by another author that features an established author’s characters like Jane Austen but something about this one called to me I was not disappointed I uickly settled into the tenor of the story and became absorbed in the story I enjoyed catching up with the characters I enjoyed getting to know Charlotte Her husband William is still very much under deferential thrall to Lady Catherine who is her pompous arrogant and interfering self When she goes to talk to Mr Collins about him his last sermon she tells him it was ’uninspiring’ I clearly heard her voice and the tone it was said in and had a little chuckleThere are many amusing moments and eually poignant moments as Charlotte relates to the local people and gets to know Mr Travis and his elderly father who take a shine to Charlotte and William’s baby Louisa I really liked the careful friendship that evolves between Charlotte and Mrs Fitzgibbon This is a gentle and charming read that reflects and build on the original period and characters even to the fleeting appearance of Elizabeth and Mr Darcy As the relationship between Charlotte and Mr Travis progressed I did wonder how it would play out The ending perfectly complimented the chracters and the genre My heartfelt thanks to Allen and Unwin for my uncorrected proof copy to read and review The whole story is lyrical I loved it Fans of Jane Austen will definitely not be disappointed What a charming debut novel Molly Greeley has given us to enjoy It is new and fresh yet still manages to retain the essence of the original Along with the well rounded characters the period and the setting the little details so beautifully rendered make this a delight to read
