Desperately frustrated, she embarks upon adulterous affairs and voracious spending sprees. However, not only are her efforts to live with passion ultimately unsatisfying, but they also have devastating consequences...

Perception

Author:

Terri Fleming

Synopsis:

Mary Bennet does not dream of marriage. Unlike her younger sister Kitty, whose ambitions are to follow in the footsteps of their elder sisters, Jane and Lizzy, her hopes are simple - a roof over her head, music at the piano, a book in her hand, and the freedom not to marry the first bachelor her mother can snare for her. But Mrs Bennet has other ideas, and is determined to hear wedding bells ring for her girls. While Kitty is presented with tempting choices and left trying to resist old habits, Mary discovers that things are not always what they seem, and that happiness has a price. By the time she realises her perceptions might be false, could she have missed her chance at a future she'd never imagined?
