This sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice spirits the reader away to Regency England, beginning as Darcy and Elizabeth arrive at Pemberley on their honeymoon. But Elizabeth had captured the heart of more than one man...what will that man's swift arrival at Pemberley mean for the Darcys? Lady Catherine de Bourgh is intent on ensnaring a husband for her daughter scorned by Darcy; and Caroline Bingley, also rejected by Darcy, is determined to achieve greater importance in the world through marriage to an aristocrat-yet who is that tall, dark man who is "not quite a gentleman"? Kitty is turning into a woman, and her fine dark eyes are turned towards one who is out of her reach, while Jane and Bingley who had achieved perfect happiness on their marriage begin to find it retreating from their grasp. Mary, meanwhile, stakes her happiness on a union of true minds, only to discover that learning alone is a cold companion. And what is Lydia up to-and with whom? As this Pride and Prejudice sequel moves in interwoven stories from the end of 1812 to the end of 1815, new light is shed on much loved old characters, and new characters are introduced who will make thousands of friends.

Adored this story. The only other Jane Austen fan fiction I've ever read was Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife - which I also enjoyed. This take is fun, really captures Austen's voice and her character's voices. It also takes more interest in the other Bennett sisters - it's a lot of fun to see how Elizabeth and Jane's "fine connections" affect their siblings, good and bad. I definitely recommend this!
