Insight and Suitability, by James Wollak
In this daring sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, we see Lady Catherine’s daughter Anne through a new lens.
Far too long, Anne de Bourgh has been pitied, ignored, and dismissed as boring and sickly. Her hopes begin to rise when two young gentlemen, both of whom would make a great catch, start paying attention to her.
With the help of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy, Anne embarks on a journey to discover which beau is the best prospect as her potential husband. Will either one end up asking for her hand, and can she be certain of his character?
Anne must contend with differences in her beaux’ personality, poise, and intelligence, even consider troubling rumors. Are the two men in competition over her? And will Lady Catherine be satisfied with either one as Anne’s husband? Along the way, Anne realizes she is not the only one whose life could be changing.
