Title:  The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennet

Author:  Natasha Farrant

The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennet is the story of Pride and Prejudice as told by Lydia Bennet. Lydia's life is boring, but she and her sisters are looking for men to marry. Lydia goes to an amazing place and meets a man she falls in love with, but it doesn't work out. Eventually she ends up marrying a good man who knows her very well and truly loves her.

The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennet lets the reader know what life for women was like in the 1700s. Women married in order to get things. Sometimes they fell in love, but could not marry that man because he could not provide for her family. This recommended book was an amazing tale of a young women's journey.
