Having always lived life with her head in a good book, Mary Bennet’s never felt more like the odd sister out than when she chooses to spend the Christmas holiday with her prettier and wittier sisters, Jane and Elizabeth, both recently married. When the shy, bookworm Arthur de Bourgh turns up unexpectedly, Mary finds a kindred spirit, but since Arthur is a single man in possession of a good fortune, she’s hardly his only suitor. Now Mary must learn to be the heroine of her own story. This charming holiday romance is a continuation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
