Book Suggestion: The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet

Colleen McCullough, bestselling author of the modern classic, The Thorn Birds, and the epic Masters of R om e series, now applies her formidable storytelling gifts to an imaginative sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. THE INDEPENDENCE OF MISS MARY BENNET (Simon & Schuster; January 1, 2009; $26.00) at last gives Mary—the often-neglected middle sister in Austen’s original—her due. As McCullough continues the story of the Bennets, it is Mary, no less beautiful or intelligent than elder sister Elizabeth, who takes center stage. Self-reliant and spirited, she soon becomes entangled in her own adventures of mystery and romance.
