The Independence of Miss Mary Bennet by Colleen McCullough

Book Club read for September
Everyone knows the story of Elizabeth and Jane Bennett in
Pride and Prejudice. But what about their sister, Mary?
So far on in time, each of Mary's sisters is settled in her own way.
Then events transpire that free Mary from her family obligations and
dangle the allurement of independence before her hungry gaze.
Fired with zeal by the newspaper letters of the mystery man Argus,
she resolves to publish a book about the plight of England's poor.
Plunging from one predicament into another, Mary embarks upon a mission
of investigation that eventually leads her into mortal danger and reveals
the surprising identity of Argus.
