An Unlikely MissionaryeBook - 2010
"Skylar Hamilton Burris, author of Waldenbooks/Amazon Religious Romance BESTSELLER "CONVICTION", explores the life of Charlotte Collins in "An Unlikely Missionary" her second sequel to Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." In the pages of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice," Charlotte Collins seems the antithesis of romance. She possesses neither beauty nor sparkling personality, as she herself ruefully acknowledges. Her lack of fortune and prospects forces her to adopt a pragmatic view of life, and, much to the horror of her close friend Elizabeth Darcy, she consents to marry the boorish Mr. Collins, a respectable rector. From there, Skylar Hamilton Burris picks up the tale. In "An Unlikely Missionary", Charlotte and her husband find themselves in the presence of Lady Catherine de Bourgh, who informs them that she has arranged a mission trip for them. This seeming whim of their benefactress will prove to have far greater consequences than any of them can foresee. Charlotte finds herself far away from the world she once knew and the practical niche she had carved within it. This new world ushers in a new cast of characters: fellow missionaries, Indian villagers, and their fascinating, mysterious, and handsome leader, Mr. Rivers. Charlotte discovers that the very traits she thought were disadvantages in her old world are valued highly by her fellow workers and even by the harsh Mr. Rivers. But will her practicality and pragmatism enable her to endure tragedy, brace her for the revelation of Mr. Rivers' past, and equip her to search her soul and discover who she really is?."-- Provided by publisher.
