The suthor has done a really good job of writing a sequal to Pride & Prejudice. Elizabeth and Mr Darcy are happily married and living at Pemberley with his sister, Georgiana, who has taken well to life in society under Elizabeth's influence. At her ball, she meets the charming Captain Heywood and despite swearing never to fall in love after her disasterous entanglement with Mr Wickham, Georgiana finds herself drawn to the young navel officer. But the Bennet's are never far from trouble and when a relative is accused of theft and sent to prison, there are many who see this as a sign that their fears have been justified, including the formidable Lady de Bourgh. As things get more complicated and Georgiana is torn between her Captain and the young architect working on the estate, things start to fall into a pattern, and isn't long before Darcy has to ride to the rescue again.

I really enjoyed this as it was nice to revisit characters after the initial story has ended. The athor did a great job of keeping the language and themes correct, even if the plot did get a bit confusing in places. Still not as good as the original, but well worth the read.

This looks really interesting. I have to admit I have never read the original, but I love it anyway having seen various film, TV and recently even a stage version. I have made apromise to myself to try and read it this year and then read this afterwards. Thank you dark-draco for being a great secret santa!
