Dear Reader,

Our story is centred on the court case,the Commonwealth vs Margaret Younge,where she is being tried for aiding and abetting Mr Wickersham for trafficking women,to work,as unpaid slaves,in his ‘cleaning business’.

Quite an interesting and refreshing premise,it was great to see a modern slant on this story.

The Barrets own a tea shop and bakery,the backbone of which is,unsurprisingly,Elyse and Jayne,their parents,as in cannon,preferring to adopt a rather laissez-fairy attitude to t

I read most of this in one sitting. I needed to know the outcome of the trial, and I wanted to eat all the things Elyse/Elizabeth made. This book took a minor, minor, MINOR character from Pride and Prejudice and built a new story around her using the major characters and the main romantic plot of P&P. At times, I forgot this was a retelling (that is both a good and bad thing). Then the author would remind me with a certain line (or the entrance of a certain character (Collin! Charlotte!).

I’ve been following blogger Amal @ The Misfortune of Knowing for several years. Her mixture of books and law have taught me so much about copyright, interpretation of law, and how individuals like herself are fighting daily for civil rights — in the court room! She’s also the mother of lovely twins and their younger sibling, about whom we read frequently when Amal shares thoughts about guiding — not censoring — young readers. As if she didn’t do enough, Amal also writes books! To support her wor ...more

An unusual retelling of Pride and Prejudice that gets 4.5 stars from me. It begins long after Lydia runs away with Wickham and doesn't keep them together. That was satisfying and refreshing. The court setting was neat. One question, though...

Where is Mr. Bingley? Was he Amelia? (if so that's kind of cool)

I missed the romance between Jane and Bingley, but the romance between Elizabeth and Darcy was intact

In the court case it felt like nothing really happens. All the major stuff that the novel could have covered is seen in small flashbacks showing the end results.
