Longbourn Inheritance by Laraba Kendig

After finishing Harley Merlin and the Secret Coven, I realized that I needed to clear off some of my Kindle Unlimited books so that way I could get more Harley Merlin. I decided then to read Longbourn Inheritance. It looked so good from the description since Lydia had a twin brother. I had to see how that changed Lydia.

The Bennets are different in this variation due to the fact that Lydia had a twin brother, Matthew, that died about six months earlier. Due to his son’s death, Mr. Bennet resorts to drinking as a method of calming his soul from the despair of losing Matthew. Lydia refuses to go out in society as she’s missing Matthew.

Elizabeth is forced to run Longbourn as her father starts drinking earlier and earlier each day. When news of Mr Bingley arrives, the five Bennet sisters congregate in one of their rooms to discuss how to handle it with their mother. They decide that it’s better to let her find out through other sources.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In Longbourn Inheritance, Lydia’s twin brother wasn’t the only change. Mr Darcy doesn’t insult Elizabeth, but Kitty, who is also different in this variation. Mr Bingley acquires a new dog, Maxwell, who becomes very good friends with Mr Darcy. Maxwell causes Mr Darcy to sprain his ankle, leading to him being on crutches. Miss Bingley gets an awakening, but it’s not a harsh one. Mr Collins does make an appearance, but something happens to change the Longbourn Inheritance.


Longbourn Inheritance has one of the best plots I’ve seen in a Pride and Prejudice variation. It’s well thought out. I loved the changes in character and how a few changes made all the difference. This one is on Kindle Unlimited.

And in case you hadn’t figured it out, my plan for 2021 is to write a blog post for each book I read. Last year, I read 150 books. We’ll see how I do this year.
