The Avenger : Thomas Bennet and a Father's Lament
"Bennet looked at his wife's swollen lips, softly bruised from several deeply loving kisses, and her flushed complexion, as alluring when gracing the countenance of a woman of four-and-forty as that of a girl of nine-and-ten. He was one of the lucky few to have fallen in love with the same woman at both ages. The elder had, after all, learned all that the younger could only begin to imagine."Thomas Bennet, Master of Longbourn, had always counted himself amongst the few educated gentlemen of his acquaintance. But, he had to travel over 120 years into the future to discover how little he knew about the woman sharing his life.Once again, the amazing Bennet Wardrobe proved to be the schoolmaster. Tom Bennet's lesson? Mrs. Bennet had been formed especially for him. Fanny Bennet also would uncover deep wells of courage and inspiration as she stood by her man's side in the bleak years after World War II. Together they would lead their descendants in pursuit of the beast who had wronged every member of the Five Families.Now, in The Avenger, the Bennet Wardrobe emerges into its own as a lead character: one with a greater purpose than simply being a teacher or a city bus. The cabinet does need to instruct Bennets in that which they need so they can play the role it wants in the greater arc of the entire Series. Readers are introduced to the forces which power the Wardrobe...C.S. Lewis' Fourth Love-agape; Jacobson's Fifth Love-exagoras agapis, the love which redeems; and Sixth Loves-Synchotikí agape, the love which forgives.According to Lory Lilian, author of Rainy Days: "The Avenger takes us on a new journey through The Bennet Wardrobe - an alternate universe rising from Don Jacobson's vivid imagination and based upon the immortal Pride and Prejudice. The Avenger is another important step leading to the culmination of this enchanting trip: one that has drawn us into its reality to travel side-by-side with richly sketched characters. Each book has left us wanting more. The Bennet Wardrobe series stands alone as a unique result of originality focused on beloved characters as they move-and grow-through surprising plotlines."####The Avenger: Thomas Bennet and a Father's Lament is the third volume of the Bennet Wardrobe series and chronicles Mr. and Mrs. Bennet's journey through the Wardrobe to visit their daughter, the Countess of Matlock, in her own where/when. This novel is about 131,000 words in length.
