    1. I read and enjoyed this author's Conviction: A Sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice a few years ago. In fact, I've reread it several times. I hadn't noted any other contributions from her to the Kindle JAFF world until this. I picked it up, curious to see if this was as good. I'm happy to report that this is similarly high quality writing.There are three short stories in this collection. The first is actually a novella and gives this collection its title. It's a delightfully unusual take [...]

    3. The Strange Marriage of Anne de Bourgh is an anthology encompassing three Pride and Prejudice related scenes that were once apart of Skylar Burris's novel An Unlikely Missionary. In the Introduction, Ms. Burris explains that while revising An Unlikely Missionary, it became necessary for these scenes to be cut. But because they were some of her favorite scenes, she opted to tweak them a little and publish them in this compilation. These three scenes are scrumptious little morsels that will be sur [...]

    4. I thoroughly enjoyed this novella. I found it exceedingly helpful to have read both of Burris' other novels before reading this collection of short stories.The main story, which the title refers to, was very intriguing right away. I could feel myself scowling at the appropriate times, and was very content with the ending. I liked how Anne de Bourgh wasn't a comrade of Darcy's in this novel. It was rather refreshing.The other two shorter stories made me chuckle and were lots of fun to read!

    5. 5 Stars becauseThe main story was a solid 3 stars, but the short stories were collectively worth 5 stars on their own.

    6. ShortSeveral very short stories about the Darcy family and their relatives. Nothing in depth or memorable. They can be read in a few minutes.

    7. I read P&P about once a year. I love the characters, and always wanted to know what happened to poor Anne after Mr. Darcy chose Elizabeth.

    10. Do not read this book. Sorry to the author, Skylar Hamilton Burris.but this looks like rough draft = final copy. Your other books are better thought, better written and provide a good story. The marriage story goes from the rouge.who she might be naïve enough to marry to all of a sudden marrying someoned you are not brought into the process of how she grew to love him.

    11. This is a collection of short stories. The author explains in the Forward how they came to be removed from other works.The Strange marriage of Anne de Bourgh is a decent enough work with a twist in the tale. The other two are adorable interactions between Mr & Mrs. Darcy.
