    The tale of Jane and Bingley;'s son

    This book is third in the series of the Pemberley Chronicles and details the life Jonathan Bingley, the oldest son of Jane Bennet and Charles Bingley from Pride and Prejudice. At this point in the saga of the Bennet sisters, both Jane and Lizzie, are grandparents and are confronted with various tragedies and joys. They still have to deal with Lydia's inappropriate behaviour as well as problems of the day.

    Of the three books so far, this is the best IMO because it is not as disjointed as the previous books. The Pemberley Chronicles and Women of Pemberley were so busy introducing the next generation that the character development was lacking but since this book concentrated on Jonathan Bingley, it read much better - smoothly integrating the other characters from the previous books.

    Netherfield Park is let at last!

    I cannot comprehend in enough words how much I enjoy this series. I find it very difficult to put these books down. I look forward to continue reading about the lives of these characters that I have come to love.

    Better and better, Mrs. Collins!

    Netherfield Park Revisited brings us back once again to the familiar haunts of Hertfordshire, Kent, London, and Derbyshire. In this volume, young Jonathan Bingley has grown into a fine man, an excellent father, and an earnest if imperfect husband. Like his mother Jane, Jonathan sees only the good in those he loves. And like Jane he strives to please everyone. Unfortunately, his ability to be all things to all people proves faulty. And we are then witnesses to a sad and crumbling marriage as well as of the concentric ripples of pain which emanate from it, engulfing his children, his parents, and even Darcy and Elizabeth. However, before we can sink too far into melancholy, our author presents us 'as she has in her previous books' with yet more proof of the remarkable resiliency of the human spirit. Despite his sadness, Jonathan never loses hope that better times will come, and he continues to seek the good in all around him. Jonathan¿s spirits are continually shored-up by the strong and caring women in his life, including his mother, his Aunt Lizzy, his eldest daughter, Anne-Marie Bingley, and a new character ¿ Miss Anna Faulkner ¿ whose strength and friendship open up new worlds for him. Jonathan¿s reward is a second chance at happiness, and that candle, once lit, warms the souls of many. This time our story is set not against a backdrop of political change (although it continues to take place), but rather the changing movements in European art and culture. The Impressionist painters are making their way onto the art scene. It is no surprise that the traditionalists are unable to appreciate the interpretive lines of this new school. The realism of their age is giving way to the ideas, as expressed through impressionism, that nothing is perfect and nothing is strictly good or bad. Rather, most things are open to interpretation, and most things are as changeable as the shifting of light and shadow. Netherfield Park Revisited is a beautiful story about imperfections ¿ even in those whose lives seem perfectly charmed. Okay, Ms. Collins¿ I¿m hooked. What¿s next in the saga?

    A reviewer

    I've just read an advance copy of this fascinating novel- the third in the acclaimed Pemberley Series by Rebecca Ann Collins and I could not put it down. The main character -Jonathan Bingley ( son of Jane and Charles ) is a typical Jane Austen hero- like Mr Darcy or Mr Knightley his appeal is in the strength of his character as well as his good looks. A passionate and honest man, the unfolding story of his life is linked with a remarkable period of English history-superbly recreated by the author. Netherfield Park is also a moving love story, in which the tragic consequences of betrayal and intrigue are healed by the warmth of deep and genuine attachment. The presence of Darcy,Elizabeth,Jane and Bingley as important players in this story are a constant reminder of the link to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and the same values and morés permeate this interesting episode. New characters like Anna Faulkner and Jonathan's sister-Emma Bingley add depth, interest and variety to the story. All genuine Austen fans should enjoy this charming, beautifully written companion volume.
