A Very Bennet Scandal
Jane Austen's masterpiece moves on apace: with two remaining daughters yet to be married off, the socially aspiring Mrs Jane Bennet dedicates herself to finding suitors for Mary and Kitty.
That is the plan...
A little - how to phrase it delicately? - local difficulty instantly puts paid to that genteel ambition and the Bennets' lives are catapulted into chaos, confusion and social exclusion. Are the defamatory claims true? If not, how on earth can they be disproven? The cataclysmic ‘incident' ricochets throughout society, with the female Bennets struggling desperately for recovery and decorum, while Mr Bertram Bennet is nowhere to be found.
