Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Contrary, opinionated, and headstrong, she's no typical Victorian lady...

Truly a masterpiece that any Austen fan would enjoy.

-Beverly Wong, author of Pride & Prejudice Prudence

Becky Collins has always been determined not to submit to the pressures of Victorian society. But her marriage doesn't bring her the opportunities she'd hoped for, and her outspokenness does not find favor with the gentrified ladies of Pemberley.

As the unintended consequences of her errors in judgment engulf her, Becky begins to understand what's really important in life. But has she learned her lessons too late?

Collins painstakingly recreates pitch-perfect Austen period notes which her fans will relish.

-Publishers Weekly

Inventive plot lines, credible characters, and an engaging style. Add to this an enviable knowledge of the history and culture of the period and a sensitive appreciation of the values and traditions that underlie the novels of Jane Austen.

-Book News

Rebecca Ann Collins has taken the characters of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and weaves new story lines and characters so seamlessly.

-A Bibliophile's Bookshelf

Synopsis:

Contrary, opinionated, and headstrong, she's no typical Victorian lady...

Synopsis:

Acclaimed author Rebecca Ann Collins once again turns to the rich tapestry of Pride and Prejudice, moving the beloved characters forward and introducing new characters into a complex social history of an evolving period in English history. Contrary, opinionated, and headstrong, Becky Collinsdaughter of Charlotte Lucas and Mr. Collinshas always defied her staid upbringing with a determination not to submit to the pressures of Victorian domesticity and class distinction. She marries Anthony Tate, a man of wealth and power, believing it will enhance her opportunities to make something significant of a hitherto ordinary life, but quickly discovers that it brings her neither happiness nor contentment. Becky's story is a glimpse behind the scenes of the complicated struggles that often lay behind the seemingly calm exterior of Victorian womanhood.
