Miss Caroline Bingley knows that her beauty is exceptional; her charms undeniable; her wealth crucial; her brother, Charles, delightful; and her engagement to Mr. Darcy of Pemberley, inevitable. In order to remain in the highest echelons of society, she must cultivate the best of relationships with those who have already cemented their social status. Thus, forming a friendship with Lady Amesbury is most agreeable and made even more so by the growing attentions of the gentleman Mr. Tryphon. But Miss Caroline Bingley didn't anticipate the Bennet sisters. Fans of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice get a glimpse into the story behind Miss Bingley's snipes toward the Bennet family. Caroline is determined to follow the path she has set for herself regardless of others. In this tale that goes beyond the confines of the Bennet household, readers learn that Caroline intends on marrying Mr. Darcy even as she becomes confused by her own growing affection for Mr. Tryphon.
VERDICT Lovers of Jane Austen will find much to enjoy here as they explore the perspective of Miss Caroline Bingley.
