England, 1813. Nineteen-year-old Catherine Bennet lives in the shadow of her two eldest sisters, Elizabeth and Jane, who have both made excellent marriages. No one expects Kitty to amount to anything. Left at home in rural Hertfordshire with her neurotic and nagging mother, and a father who derides her as “silly and ignorant,” Kitty is lonely, diffident and at a loss as to how to improve her situation.
When her world unexpectedly expands to London and the Darcy’s magnificent country estate in Derbyshire, she is overjoyed. Keen to impress this new society, and to change her family’s prejudice, Kitty does everything she can to improve her mind and manners—and for the first time feels liked and respected.
However, one fateful night at Pemberley, a series of events and misunderstandings conspire to ruin Kitty’s reputation and she is sent back home in disgrace. But Kitty has learnt from her new experiences and what she does next does next will not only surprise herself, but everyone else too.

*I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review*

Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite classics and I’ve read and watched the TV adaptions and movies several times, so I was really excited to jump back into this world and I’m glad to say that I was not disappointed.

This is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice set after the events of the original book following the second youngest Bennet girl Kitty as she navigates Regency Britain Society, learns how to live outside of her elder sister Lydia’s shadow and find a husband.

Before I read this I didn’t have much of an opinion on Kitty other than her being a Lydia copycat but once I read this I realised I was very wrong. This book adds a lot more depth to her character and I loved learning more about her.

I also loved seeing more of Elizabeth and Jane and getting to spend time at Pemberley. However, I swear Lydia is one of my most disliked fictional characters and this book just enchances my dislike of her

Overall this was a great read and I loved learning more about Kitty. I gave this 4 out of 5 stars.
