The Pursuit of Mary Bennet by Pamela Mingle Review-post

The Pursuit of Mary Bennet  by Pamela Bennet       Review-post

   Unschooled in the game of love, Mary knows her heart and her future are are at risk. Is she worthy of romance or should she take the safer path? In her journey of self-acceptance, she discovers the answer.

My thoughts:

   This is a delightful book that brought me back to the Bennet household and the lives of her married sisters whom I enjoyed so much in Pride & Prejudice. Mary, the shy one, believes she will never meet the love of her life and will have to accept the lonely life of a spinster. It is a story of ups and downs at this time in her life, plus the added problems of her family. Her older sisters try to help her along with the way she should dress and style her hair, so a certain gentleman would take notice. Mary always knew her own mind and always did the right thing even if it meant hurting herself by doing it.
     I found it to be a truly refreshing novel which I enjoyed reading.
