LoveReading View on What Kitty Did Next

Dust off your dance cards and practice your repartee, as the Bennet sisters are back. Kitty Bennet is lonely, with three of her sisters married, she begins to consider her previous antics. Spending time with both Jane and Lizzy, Kitty’s eyes open to new possibilities. I adore anything that lengthens my forays into Jane Austen’s world and I immediately felt at home. I could see, hear, almost reach out and touch the much-loved characters as they walked in my mind. This is such a gentle, loving, and beautifully readable novel, you don’t actually need to have read Pride and Prejudice to step into the pages. Carrie Kablean perhaps sees certain well-loved characters with a slightly different eye to my own, which was fascinating as I felt myself evaluating my own impressions and thoughts. What Kitty Did Next is a delightful, thoroughly enjoyable read, and I fairly skipped through from beginning to end.

What Kitty Did Next Synopsis

England, 1813. Kitty Bennet lives in the shadow of her two eldest sisters, both of whom have made brilliant marriages. No one expects Kitty to amount to anything. Left at home in rural Hertfordshire with a querulous mother and a father who derides her as silly and ignorant , Kitty is lonely and desperate to escape. When her world unexpectedly expands to London and then to her sister Elizabeth's magnificent estate in Derbyshire, Kitty is overjoyed. Keen to impress this new society, she resolves to improve her mind and manners. She makes new friends, chief among them Georgiana Darcy, and attracts the attention of more than one eligible gentleman. All augurs well, until one fateful night at Pemberley a series of events conspires to ruin Kitty's reputation and she is sent home in disgrace, her hopes and dreams dashed. But Kitty has learnt from her experiences and what she does next will surprise everyone. Beautifully written in a style that absolutely evokes Jane Austen's spirit and time, Kitty's journey will resonate with anyone who has had to overcome obstacles and find their own way in the world.
