About this title

Synopsis:

“Nobody turned my head with compliments. Nobody asked me to dance.”

An elegant accompaniment to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Jennifer Paynter’s The Forgotten Sister plucks the neglected Mary from obscurity and reveals her hopes and fears.

Mary Bennet spends much of her time apart from her family, closeted in her room reading or playing her music, studying hard for accomplishments.

As her four sisters become absorbed in their own romantic dramas, Mary stands apart, believing herself “not pretty enough” to dance with. She watches while Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley—and Mr. Wickham—waltz into her sisters’ lives, judging all three gentlemen quite dispassionately (and as it turns out, accurately). But Mary may not be quite so clear-sighted when she finally falls in love herself. She will first have to overcome her own brand of “pride and prejudice.”

About the Author:

Jennifer Paynter is the author of the plays God’s People, Balancing Act, and When Are We Going to Manly?, the last being nominated for a Sydney Theatre Critics’ Circle Award and the NSW Premiere’s Literary Award. Her plays have been produced in Sydney and Canberra and for ABC Radio, and her short story “The Sad Heart of Ruth” is an ABC Bicentennial Award winner. The Sydney Morning Herald hails the Australian edition of The Forgotten Sister as an “impressive literary achievement and a delightful read,” and the Brisbane Courier Mail says it “succeeds in inviting us back into the world of Longbourn and the Bennet family and their preoccupation with marriage, money and social class.” Paynter lives in Australia with her family.
