Mr. Collins's Last Supper: A Short Story Inspired by Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice - Shannon Winslow Mr. Collins Last Supper is a short story featuring William Bartholomew Collins, the parson to whom the Bennet family estate was entailed in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Mr. Collins tells a fib to entice his patron, Catherine de Bourgh, to send mutton because it his favorite meal. Suffice it to say this gets him into trouble as indicated by the name of the book.

Shannon Winslow's writing is excellent. It put me in the "mood" of Jane Austen, like I was in the time period. This story is a worthy part of the Austenesque genre.

I think the biggest compliment I can give this book is that I will be purchasing Ms. Winslow's "The Darcys of Pemberley: The Continuing Story of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice" as a result.
