Exploring what life was like for women in that era, Ms. Collins explores the themes of how a complex young woman's passionless marriage forces her to find strength both within herself and her family. Her rejection of the conventional marriage without love or passion, makes her a truly Austenian heroine. The original Austen characters - Darcy, Elizabeth, Bingley, and Jane - provide the framework of solid values and commentary upon the characters and unfolding events. Exploring the themes of personal and social responsibility, integrity and compassion, Collins tells a great story with wit and conviction.
