The Forgotten Sister: Mary Bennet's Pride and Prejudice | [Jennifer Paynter]

The Forgotten Sister: Mary Bennet's Pride and Prejudice

As her four sisters become absorbed in their own romantic dramas, Mary Bennet stands apart, believing herself “not pretty enough” to dance with. She watches while Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley - and Mr. Wickham - waltz into her sisters’ lives, judging all three gentlemen quite dispassionately (and as it turns out, accurately). But Mary may not be quite so clear-sighted when she finally falls in love herself. She will first have to overcome her own brand of "pride and prejudice."

Publisher's Summary

"Nobody turned my head with compliments. Nobody asked me to dance." An elegant accompaniment to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Jennifer Paynter’s The Forgotten Sister plucks the neglected Mary from obscurity and reveals her hopes and fears. Mary Bennet spends much of her time apart from her family, closeted in her room reading or playing her music, studying hard for accomplishments. As her four sisters become absorbed in their own romantic dramas, Mary stands apart, believing herself "not pretty enough" to dance with. She watches while Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley - and Mr. Wickham - waltz into her sisters’ lives, judging all three gentlemen quite dispassionately (and as it turns out, accurately). But Mary may not be quite so clear-sighted when she finally falls in love herself. She will first have to overcome her own brand of "pride and prejudice."

    "Good listen, very interesting."
    Would you listen to The Forgotten Sister again? Why?

    Pride and Prejudice is one of favorite books amd I've watched the movie about 100 times. Seeing things from a different perspective was great. The story of how things turned out for everyone was very interesting and intriguing. The one damper on the whole thing was the constant mispronunciation of piano forte.


    What three words best describe Justine Eyre’s performance?

    Her accent


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    That was not possible but I did find extra time to listen.

    "A unique prospective"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Enjoyable and unique prospective of Pride and Prejudice through the eyes of Mary Bennet, one of it's most underdeveloped characters. I love how her story was interwoven with the original book to create a complexed and emotional journey as she to finds love! If you love Pride and Prejudice you will enjoy this book.
