Lizzy Bennet's Diary

Lizzy Bennet's Diary

9781406346947

Published to coincide with the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice, this is a glorious retelling of Jane Austen's most famous novel from the point of view of Lizzy Bennet, its feisty heroine.

The story of Pride and Prejudice, told through Lizzy Bennet's secret diary. A beautifully detailed and completely fresh take on one of the best-loved stories in English literature. Readers will feel as though they've stepped into Austen's world: the book is packed with Lizzy's drawings, pressed flowers, ribbons from her bonnet, hand-written notes to fold out and read, dance cards, invitations, and even a letter from Mr Darcy...
