Read full description of the books An Unlikely Missionary: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, Ms. Burris picks up the tale. In this surprising sequel, the Collinses are unexpectedly sent on a missionary journey by their benefactress, Lady Catherine de Bourgh. 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 harsh, mysterious, and handsome leader, Mr. Rivers. But will Charlotte's pragmatism enable her to endure tragedy, brace her for a startling revelation, and equip her to discover who she really is?
