Exciting new novelist Emma Hox recently released “Longbourn’s Unexpected Matchmaker,” a reimagining on how literary classic Pride and Prejudice would have been different if Colonel Fitzwilliam had accompanied Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy to Netherfield.
“LONGBOURN’S UNEXPECTED MATCHMAKER”: Emma Hox uses the characters from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice to create an all new stand-alone story with “Longbourn’s Unexpected Matchmaker.” The novel ties up many of the loose ends that Jane Austen let her readers speculate about, such as: How did the Bennet entail come about? Why do Mrs. Bennet’s nerves bother her so? How did the eldest two Bennet daughters turn into such ladies when their family is so inappropriate? Why does Mr. Bennet always hide in his library with his books? In order to come to this greater understanding, Emma altered two main events, which, in turn, take a spiraling effect at altering Pride and Prejudice into a fantastic story that everyone will enjoy. Emma begins by having Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam accompany Mr. Charles Bingley and Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy to Netherfield. She also has Mr. Darcy befriend a mysterious member of the Meryton neighborhood, who refuses an introduction but who has a close relationship with the Bennet household. By altering these two events, you get the novel “Longbourn’s Unexpected Matchmaker.” http://www.rhemalda.com/

I just received my copy and have been reading it. I really like the Lizzy character and her tendency to climb trees. I must say this is a delightful read.
