    One thought on “Miss Bennet's First Christmas”

    1. This novella is the first I've read of this series of "Wardrobe" books. It is a well constructed short story which also serves as a companion piece to The Keeper: Mary Bennet's Extraordinary Journey.In the Prologue, we learn that Mr. Bennet keeps a wardrobe in his study with magical time travel properties, and a visitor arrives. But as Chapter 1 begins, a devastating fire just has broken out in Meryton and the Bennets' help is solicited. Mr. Bennet, uncharacteristically, immediately takes charge [...]

    2. A quick introduction for me into the "A Bennet Wardrobe" series with the Bennet middle child, Mary Bennet. Jacobson does a a remarkable job in expanding the story of this "Pride and Prejudice" tertiary character within this clever short story. Looking forward to my binge read for this series.

    3. Miss Bennet's First Christmas: A Bennet Wardrobe StoryThis was an excellent story of Mary Bennet coming into her own. Mary was not the sermon quoting girl that she had been. With three sisters married and Kitty in a seminary for her part in Lydia's unfortunate behavior, Mary had become useful and craved more to help where she could. The household of three and their servants were awaken by a young boy asking for help in Meryton, because the town was on fire and everyone needed to help. The master [...]

    4. Although I am not much of a reader of books involving time travel, I picked up Mr. Jacobson's story out of curiosity. The only thing I did not like about it was the fact that the story must continue in another book, and I have yet to know of Mary Bennet and Edward Benton's fates. There are some typos and a few split infinitives that caught my eye. "You father will explain," "she might felt," "alright," "to adequately care," "to more closely follow," and "to be alternately regaled."

    5. If you have read "The Keeper" by Mr. Jacobson, you will find this story within it's pages. It is a very moving and fast paced story that strikes at your heart and has you viewing Mary Bennet in a whole new light. If you wish to give the Bennet Wardrobe series a peek before fully committing, then this story is for you. I, however, had first read "The Keeper" and for some reason was expecting this to be a further expansion or added content that wasn't in "The Keeper". I wont say that I was disappo [...]
