    *Starred Review* Anne, the daughter of Pride and Prejudice's Lady Catherine de Bourgh, takes center stage in Greeley's latest (after The Clergyman's Wife, 2019). Anne was a fussy baby, and the prescribed treatment—daily doses of laudanum—restricts her growth and leaves her in a constant dreamlike state. Her domineering mother defies all attempts to wean Anne from her "magic drops," leaving her daughter sickly, placid, and addicted. Lady Catherine's grand plan for Anne includes a marriage to her cousin Fitzwilliam Darcy, which would bring together their two grand estates. Anne's only comfort is her governess, Miss Hall, who eventually inspires Anne to break free both from her laudanum addiction and from her toxic mother. Safely ensconced in the London home of her cousin, John Fitzwilliam, Anne befriends Eliza Amherst, a spirited young woman who introduces her to fashion, parties, and the writing of Mary Wollstonecraft. Their attachment grows into love, and Anne must decide whether to marry for security or to be true to herself. Greeley is faithful to the original story, while creating an imaginative and vivid inner life for the beleaguered Anne. This inventive novel will delight Pride and Prejudice fans, and win over readers who are skeptical of Austen reimaginings. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
