Overview

A disaster at Rosings unearths long-hidden secrets

"Many surprises and turns in the lives of our favorite characters leave you riveted to each page."
-Beverly Wong, author of Pride & Prejudice Prudence O

Sisters Catherine Harrison and Becky Tate, daughters of Charlotte Lucas and Mr. Collins, have very different personalities and temperaments. Both grew up in the shadow of Rosings Park, domain of the formidable Lady Catherine de Bourgh, but as adults their paths diverged dramatically.

When a catastrophe at Rosings Park brings Becky back to visit her sister, the two clash about their aspirations for the marriage of Catherine's young daughter, and both women are forced to confront the ghosts of the past-in particular, Lady Catherine's cruelty and deception.

As the shocking truth emerges, the Darcy and Bingley families rally. But it may be too late for the sisters to find the love and happiness they were denied so long ago. O
"A lovely novel, written from the heart."

The eighth of Rebecca Ann Collins' sequels to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice revolves around the children and grandchildren of a secondary character from the original book. The narrative begins with a fire at Rosings, the estate of the late Lady Catherine de Bourgh. John Adams, the somewhat mysterious curator of the estate, must handle calamity while trying to impress his love interest Lilian Harrison, the fragile daughter of Catherine Harrison and Dr. Harrison, and granddaughter of Mr. Collins. Dr. Harrison takes ill and dies shortly after the arrival of Mr. Frank Burnett, the former librarian at Rosings, now returned to help restore the estate's treasures. As Catherine reads her old diaries, she recalls she and Mr. Burnett were once quite friendly, and eventually discovers the late Lady Catherine's interference in that friendship. Interwoven into these meanderings is the story of Becky Tate, Lilian's aunt, who lives in London. Though Catherine and Lilian center the story, various and sundry Darcys, Collinses, Bingleys, and Bennetts are constantly referenced, often in a trivial manner that proves difficult to track. Stylized yet methodical-almost plodding-writing results in a slow read, likely to appeal only to staunch fans.
