About the Author

Molly Greeley's debut The Clergyman's Wife, the story of Charlotte Lucas after the events of Pride and Prejudice, was published by Viking in the UK and Morrow in the US earlier this year. She lives in northern Michigan with her husband and three children.


Molly Greeley is one of the best young writers working today - the sheer beauty of her prose has few rivals. In reimagining the character of Anne de Bourgh from Pride and Prejudice, Greeley takes us inside a troubled, resilient and poetic mind and gives us a heroine to both sympathise with and root for. With stunningly lyrical writing, Greeley elevates Austen-inspired fiction - and psychological fiction in general - onto a whole new plane.
*Natalie Jenner, author of THE JANE AUSTEN SOCIETY*

Haunting. In The Heiress, Molly Greeley shines a light on the darkness cloaking Anne de Bourgh, Lady Catherine's sickly daughter and Mr. Darcy's intended. The result is a novel with all the hallmarks of nineteenth-century Gothic, which doesn't shy away from "modern" ills, such as the opiate crisis, Munchausen syndrome by proxy, and homophobia. Highly recommended.'
*Finola Austin, author of Bronte's Mistress*

This inventive novel will delight Pride & Prejudice fans, and win over readers who are sceptical of Austen reimaginings
*Booklist - Starred Review*

An entertaining elaboration to satisfy generations of readers who have wondered and theorized about Anne. In perfectly Austenesque style, Greeley reveals the backstory of the Rosings Park heiress and just what made her so sickly, so interesting and so complicated . . . Keen observations about society and strong supporting characters make The
Heiress a perfectly joyful read.
