Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In McCullough’s sensational sequel to Pride and Prejudice, wallflower sister Mary Bennet sheds her cocoon, as Elizabeth and Darcy contemplate divorce…McCullough bursts from the drawing room to paint Austen’s milieu in lurid colors.” Kirkus Reviews
“A gold star for going outside the bounds of what is normal for an Austen sequel…[McCullough] finishes in true Pride and Prejudice style. With a wedding, of course.” Examiner.com
