It is a truth universally acknowledged that Lady Catherine will never find a husband for Anne…
I can understand that a lot of people will find the premise for this tale hard to get their heads around as it means that Lady Catherine has to bend enough to take Anne to Pemberley. Impossible one thinks but if you can allow for that it’s a good tale, well constructed with some very pleasing characters, in fact some of the bad ones are too well written.
Anne herself is being allowed to come to life and flourish. In this tale you can allow yourself to like Anne and really wish for a happy ending for her. I hate book reviews that tell you the whole story leaving no surprises, so, I will not say more of the tale except that the final twist will have you laughing or crying with disbelief, but it is fun.
