Where Pride and Prejudice ends, a new relationship begins
Good-humoured but detached and taciturn. Mr Bennet is not given to intimacy. Largely content wirh his life at Longbourn, he spends his evenings in the solitude of his library, accompanied only by a glass of port and a good book. But when his cousin, the pompous Mr collins, announces his intention to visit, Mr. Bennett is curious to meet and appraise the heir to his estate.
Despite Mr Bennet's intial discouragement, Mr Collins quickly becomes a frequent presence in his life. They correspond regularly with Mr Collins recounting tales of his follies and scrapes and Mr Bennet tajing great pleasure frim teasing his unspecting friend.
When a rift develops between the men, Mr Bennett is faced with a choice; he must withdraw into isolation once again or acknowledge that Mr Collins has brought something new and rich to his life.
Tender, heart0warming and peppered with disarming humour, The Longbourn Letters reimagines the characters of Pride and Prejudice and perfectly captures the subtleties of human relationship and the power of friendship.
