Live from Pemberley: The Mercenary and The Prudent (Chapters 26 - 28)

Lizzy Bennet hits the road in Chapters 26 and 28 of Pride and Prejudice. Change is in the air in Hertfordshire – Wickham is pursuing something new, Jane is with her aunt and uncle in London, and Lizzy heads to Hunsford to see “the happy couple” (that is to say, Charlotte and Collins). In this episode, Vanessa and Lauren explore the difference between Charlotte and Wickham and role of ‘love’ in matrimony.

Dr. Natalie Hanley-Smith joins us at the end of the episode to discuss Wickham’s fortune hunting. Our next episode is on October 7th, when we’ll be reading chapter 29!
