'Miss de Bourgh in Bath' by SwordSwallower17

Fandom Category: Austen, Pride & Prejudice
Pairing: Anne de Bourgh/OMC
Fic Title: Miss de Bourgh in Bath
Author: SwordSwallower17
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Drama
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a great follow up to Pride and Prejudice that not only gives attention to a great secondary character, but also stays true to the world and characters created by Austen. This fic is magic in the way it presents the slow awakening of Anne de Bourgh as she steps outside Rosings Park and realizes that the world is not quite as Lady Catherine has painted it. I like that Anne makes mistakes and misjudges and slowly wakes to her own prejudices and flaws, even as she discovers the world and her own capabilities and value. She's petulant and jealous at times, but also brave and kind and willing to correct herself--a true fleshed out character. You'll be cheering for her and wishing for her happy ending. The supporting cast is varied and textured, and there are some lovely cameos by some familiar characters. Enjoy!
