A Look Behind the Curtain...
For lovers of Pride and Prejudice, the characters are like old friends. Everyone knows the who and the what of the cherished tale, but WHAT JANE AUSTEN DIDN'T TELL US! fills in the how, why – and especially the when.
For instance, why would Mr. Bennet marry such a foolish woman?
And how did his daughter Lizzy develop such a fierce independent streak?
Seventeen dramatic portraits take us into the lives of the story's beloved figures before they enter the pages of the novel. Triumphs and follies, victories and social disasters, the characters' pasts reveal hidden secrets, unexpected intersections, and new motivations for all the goings-on from Longhorn to Pemberley – and all places in between.
