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 na#65533;ve, 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?
