A what if …
Mary Bennet, the plainest of the Bennet sisters, took a vast deal of pride in her accomplishments. But she was deeply hurt when her father scolded her publicly for her exhibition at the Netherfield ball. She began to see herself as her family saw her and folded in upon herself, becoming less self-righteous and far less inclined to preach or display.
More than two years later, the now-reticent but far more pleasant Mary is invited to Pemberley, where she makes the acquaintance of Georgiana Darcy, newly returned from her first Season, and Georgiana’s rather dashing cousin, Henry Fitzwilliam, the Viscount Morley.
The shy, awkward Mary learns the joy of true friendship, developing close bonds with Georgiana, Elizabeth and Henry, but her newly awakening heart is preparing her for something more than friendship.
A gentle romance with a touch of drama and much humour. Suitable for middle teens and upwards due to references to the marriage bed.
