Mary Green by Melanie Kerr

3.5 stars
reader's choice

Basically, this is Jane Austen fan-fic.  As far as I can tell it was after reading Mansfield Park and thinking "That's not at ALL what SHOULD have happened!"


Seriously though, if Mansfield Park and Cinderella had some sort of weird literary love child, this might be it.

Not a bad read but I can't help wondering what awesome book the author could come up with getting away from the "let's pick this from the Jane Austen... and this from that one...." model that this book seemed built on.
