Publisher's Summary

Everybody thinks that Charlotte Lucas has no prospects. She is unmarried, plain, poor and reaching a dangerous age. When she stuns the neighbourhood by accepting the proposal of buffoonish clergyman Mr Collins, her best friend Lizzy Bennet is appalled by her decision. Yet this is the only way Charlotte knows how to provide for her future. Her married life will propel her into a new world: not only of duty and longed-for children, but secrets, grief, unexpected love and friendship and a kind of freedom.

Jane Austen cared deeply about the constraints on women in Regency England. This powerful re-imagining takes up where Austen left off in Pride and Prejudice, showing us a woman determined to carve a place for herself in the world. Charlotte offers a fresh, feminist addition to the post-Austen canon, beautifully imagined and brimming with passion and intelligence.

A SATURDAY LISTEN

This is a compelling book. I think it lends itself to being read aloud. I listened in one day, unable to tear myself away. The narrative unfolds in a mixture of past and present moments. A most enjoyable book.

Charlotte

Loved this book! It reads as an extension of much beloved Price and Prejudice and the author has been very respectful of Jane Austen's original work.I
I have just listened to this for the second time after a gap of many months and thoroughly enjoyed it again 😍 😊

Great follow up story

I really enjoyed this. Charlotte's ( and Anne's) future lives were well written and alsio credible within their time whilst a real satisfying sense of modern justice ultimately prevailed. Great characterisations from the narrator.
