Artist Annie Wright likes her life free of complications, especially complications of the male persuasion. She has her dream job running an art gallery by the sea, her volunteer work rescuing abandoned dogs, and that's enough for her. She doesn't like to talk about her past, especially how she became a widow after just a few years of marriage... until one day her past walks right into the Cape Light Gallery in the form of her late husband's best friend Jeremy, the man who left the country rather than see Annie married to someone else. Add in an abused and distrustful pile of fur named Bear and the machinations of the powerful Westing family, and Annie's life is suddenly full of complications. The bestselling author of THE MAN WHO LOVED PRIDE & PREJUDICE returns us to the seaside town of Woods Hole in this novel inspired by Jane Austen's PERSUASION.

She began writing Pride & Prejudice variations in 2001 to spend more time with her very favorite characters.
