A man in possession of a fortune must be careful how he chooses a wife.

In country England, 25 years before Pride and Prejudice, the convoluted landscape of family loyalties and social expectations makes marriage frustratingly necessary. Still, Mr Bennet is determined to choose a wife on his own terms—a decision he may come to repent for many long years! This prequel you’ve always wanted reveals a backstory for Austen’s greatly-loved, but ill matched, Mr and Mrs Bennet.

Mr Bennet’s Bride explores the fun that can be had in reimagining the lives of familiar characters and how they came to be as we know them.
