Imagine Mr Bennet, comfortable at Longbourn surrounded by his books. And the door firmly shut against interruptions.
Now imagine him advising a young man on how best to court a lady.
You can’t? Neither can Mr Bennet. But then the son of an old friend comes calling, bringing with him memories that our reluctant Cupid might prefer to forget.
Set against the backdrop of the first part of the Pride and Prejudice story, this novel is a tale of love, regret, the occasional nerve tonic, and plenty of sponge cake. Take a look.
Just began last night and shared with readers. You write a most amusing Mr Bennet!
Thanks April – very kind of you!
