Read All About It

Contrary, opinionated, and headstrong, she’s no typical Victorian lady…

“Truly a masterpiece that any Austen fan would enjoy.”
Beverly Wong, author of Pride & Prejudice Prudence

Becky Collins has always been determined not to submit to the pressures of Victorian society. But her marriage doesn’t bring her the opportunities she’d hoped for, and her outspokenness does not find favor with the gentrified ladies of Pemberley.

As the unintended consequences of her errors in judgment engulf her, Becky begins to understand what’s really important in life. But has she learned her lessons too late?

“Collins painstakingly recreates pitch-perfect Austen period notes which her fans will relish.”
Publishers Weekly

“Inventive plot lines, credible characters, and an engaging style. Add to this an enviable knowledge of the history and culture of the period and a sensitive appreciation of the values and traditions that underlie the novels of Jane Austen.”
Book News

“Rebecca Ann Collins has taken the characters of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and weaves new story lines and characters so seamlessly.”
A Bibliophile’s Bookshelf

She was, of course, no longer Miss Collins; having been married before she was twenty years of age to Mr Anthony Tate, a publisher of some power and influence in the community, she had been considered to be a woman of some rank and substance.

Thanks to the generosity of her husband, who, having separated from his wife, had elected to live out the rest of his days in America, where he had recently died, she was now a reasonably wealthy woman. Having sold their house in London, Becky had acquired Edgewater, an investment that had the universal approval of most if not all of her friends and relations.
