A twist on PRIDE AND PREJUDICE’s ugly duckling, Mary + an uninhibited glimpse into the life of a traveling, free-spirited, truth-seeking artist = this #pubday party!
THE OTHER BENNET SISTER by Janice Hadlow
“Readers with fond but not necessarily exhaustive memories of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE will love this story, as will historical fiction readers looking for intelligent heroines with agency and heart who belong to their time and place without quite fitting in.”–Library Journal, starred review
“[I]mmersing the reader in Mary’s internal world as she keenly (though, at first, awkwardly) observes those around her, and the result is a page-turning coming-of-age story of an overlooked woman slowly accepting her zest for life.”–Booklist, starred review
“Another reboot of Jane Austen?!? Hadlow pulls it off in a smart, heartfelt novel devoted to bookish Mary… Entertaining and thoroughly engrossing.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
THRESHOLD by Rob Doyle
“Confidently told, this second long-form work from Doyle (after HERE ARE THE YOUNG MEN) alternates 11 vignettes with letters to an anonymous correspondent as the masterly narrative pacing brilliantly counterbalances lurid episodes and sometimes terror with devastating wit and epiphany. As ever, Doyle’s prose is compulsively readable, and his insights always credible and occasionally astonishing.”–Library Journal, starred review
