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
