Mirta Trupp | 57 comments I'm honored to share this exciting announcement! "The Meyersons of Meryton" has been awarded the Jane Austen Reader's Award. Thank you Suzy Somerset and #JAFFJaneAustenBookAwards

"Flurry and panic of an imminent double wedding at the Bennet household is apparent throughout this novel. Essentially it's a “mid-themed” Pride & Prejudice Variation. While the Bennet family, Mr Charles Bingley, and Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy provide a familial feel to this novel, Rabbi Meyerson and his family bring to light a Jewish community within Meryton. Mrs Bennet and her daughters unfamiliar with the Jewish faith are as intrigued as they are baffled by it. With alacrity Miss Mary Bennet embraces the mayhem all around, rather pleased her many seeming faults are less noticeable.

In the meanwhile Mr Bennet discovers he and the Rabbi have a deal in common. Their covert observations, however, are not without risk. Unfortunately the pickle the two elders fall into requires an intrepid hero. Mr Darcy is therefore the man of the moment, and Mr Wickham is involved in the dark mix.

The novel has amusing asides and a literary touch to the prose. For the uninitiated there is a great deal of enlightenment to the Jewish faith in all its facets, and the Jane Austen Award is hereby granted to Mirta Ines Trupp for "The Meyersons of Meryton."
