The Unexpected Miss Bennet by Patrice Sarath

The Unexpected Miss Bennet by Patrice Sarath

Summary from Goodreads:
Pride and Prejudice's Mary Bennet gets her own story... 

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...

My Review:
This story takes place a year or so after Pride and Prejudice.  I thoroughly enjoyed this story for Mary.  Mary is more mature and comes in to her own.  I thought some things were a little too much out of character for her and also for the other characters.  Otherwise, it was a lovely story.

Warnings: None

I would let my 14 year old read this story.
