"Those with a taste for the balance and humour of Austen will find a worthy companion volume."-Book News

The weddings are over.

The guests (including millions of readers and viewers) wish the two happy couples health and happiness. As the music swells and the credits roll, two things are certain: Jane and Bingley will want for nothing, while Elizabeth and Darcy are to be the happiest couple in the world!

The couples' personal stories of love, marriage, money, and children are woven together with the threads of social and political history of nineteenth century England. As changes in industry and agriculture affect the people of Pemberley and the neighboring countryside, the Darcys strive to be progressive and forward-looking while upholding beloved traditions.

Rebecca Ann Collins follows them in imagination, observing and chronicling their passage through the landscape of their surroundings, noting how they cope with change, triumph, and tragedy in their lives.

"A lovely complementary novel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Austen would surely give her smile of approval." -Beverly Wong, author of Pride & Prejudice Prudence

There was an earlier edition of this book that was much racier....; especially a scene in a coach heading to Pemberely..... The library does carry it.... this version is too tame... unless you are a blue-haired old granny of prissy sensibilities...

This book was fine. It covered the next 25-30 years of the lives of Elizabeth and her family and friends. There was nothing objectional in it, and it was interesting to read her take on what might have happened next. I loved that she covered what was actually happening historically in Europe at this time and wove it into the story. It was irritating, however, to read multiple times about how they had almost never realized their love for each other, or how they knew they would be the happiest couple on Earth. This bugged me enough that I probably won't read any of the many sequels to this book.
