To review

This is a two part story, in the first one 10 year old Lizzy stumbles through the wardrobe. But she is a smart kid and figures things out even if the adults in the future tries to smooths things over. It was a rather bittersweet story. She meets her sister, but does not know it. So it was more bittersweet for Kitty in that aspect.

And then it comes into the second story. Lizzy and Darcy meets Percy Shelley, Mary Godwin and Byron. Lizzy also starts remembering strange things from her childhood. And Mary Shelley writes her famous story.

I enjoyed these stories, and the more I listen the more I realised how messed up the Bennet family was. But then comes explanations and it all goes together.

Great narration. These are fun to listen to

The universe was shaken once again on Midsummer’s Day in 1801. The Bennet Wardrobe’s door to the future was opened in the book room at Longbourn. This time, the most impertinent Bennet of them all, Elizabeth, tumbled through the gateway. Except she left not as the grown women with whom we have become so familiar, but rather as a 10-year-old girl who had been playing a simple game of hide-and-seek.

What/where/when was her destination? What needs could a young girl, only beginning to learn to make her way in the Regency, have that could be answered only by the Wardrobe? Or were the requirements of another Bennet, one who began as younger, but had aged into a beautiful, confident leader of society, the prime movers behind Lizzy’s journey? Is the enigmatic Lady Kate the force that shaped the destiny of Lizzy and her younger sisters left back in Hertfordshire? How do the visions of the future brought home by young Lizzy help shape her world?

Answers to these and other questions raised in the Bennet Wardrobe series can be found in Lizzy Bennet Meets the Countess.
