At last—Pride and Prejudice told through the eyes of the scandalous, youngest Bennet sister, Lydia.
Lydia Bennet is the youngest of five girls. Spoiled, uneducated, selfish, stubborn, and boisterous, she wishes her older sisters would take more notice of her. She dreams of adventure, romance, and passion, so when the chance to run away with handsome Mr. Wickham presents itself, she takes it, much to her family’s disgrace. This is her story.
