In Lady Catherine's Necklace we are reintroduced to that monster of unfeeling snobbery Lady Catherine de Bourgh and her toadying curate Mr Collins, familiar to all from Pride and Prejudice. When a carriage accident brings Priscilla Delaval and her brother Ralph to the door of Rosings, Lady Catherine's residence in Kent, a chain of events is set in train which includes, among other things, a brush both with death and with the lower orders for Lady Catherine (in which she discovers a surprising talent for culinary improvisation), and the belated discovery of a skeleton in the cupboard of Lady Catherine's late husband Sir Lewis. A beautifully written and supremely entertaining "Jane Austen Entertainment".
