Overview

(Please note: this is one story told across three volumes and there is, therefore, no conclusion to the storylines in the first two volumes.)

Nursing his wounds after his rejection by Miss Elizabeth Bennet, Fitzwilliam Darcy returns to London, a devastated and humbled man. The lady, meanwhile, is battling the unprecedented feelings stirred by having endured an innocent but intimate encounter with the gentleman in the aftermath of his proposal. Soon on her way to Town herself for an unanticipated stay, she is comforted by the presence of an old family friend, one Nicholas Harington – the son of a wealthy family whose position in society rivals that of the Darcys of Pemberley.

Circumstance soon throws Darcy back into the company of Elizabeth, much to their mutual consternation, and also introduces him to Harington who has emerged as a potential suitor for Elizabeth’s hand, a union that is viewed as a fair prospect by all – except, perhaps, Darcy himself.

Meet the Author

A fan of Jane Austen since having to study Pride & Prejudice for her English Lit O Level in 1978, Cassandra has been indulging her passion for all things Austen for many years.

Having long wanted to be a writer, the two came together in recent years, and she is now publishing her endeavours in the hope that some readers will enjoy reading her stories as much as she enjoyed writing them.

A former college lecturer and PA, she is British born and bred (though she did live in the USA for 5 years). Cassandra has two grown up children, and she splits her time between Switzerland, where she lives with her husband, and Regency England, where she lives with her characters.

    Beautifully written

    If you are a Pride and Prejudice fan, this book is a must read and definitely will not disappoint.

    Pride and Prejudice is written in a third person limited perspective. And if you're like me, you are constantly wondering what is going on in the other characters's heads. What was Darcy thinking and how did he feel after Lizzy rejected his proposal? Cassandra, in her beautifully written book, not only answers that burning question but delves into their minds and intentions of the other characters we have loved for so long and the secondary characters that we longed to learn more about.

    While I loved reading every line with Darcy and/or Lizzy (my stomach in knots, my heart clenched), I enjoyed reading more about the newly wholly developed characters of Colonel Fitzwilliam and Georgiana Darcy.

    While the point of view of the book may be different, the book flows along the same vein of Jane Austen's original novel. Our beloved characters are just as we remember them and the character development of the secondary characters are consistent and feel true to the spirit of the original. I caught myself several times throughout my reading trying to remember if a particular scene was in original or not.

    This book is truly a wonderful read. Cassandra is a gifted and talented writer. My one complaint is that I have to wait to to read the next volume! I couldn't put this book down. My e-reader followed me everywhere in the house and I read until 1 am before I told myself I need to go to sleep.

    I've never written a book review before, but I made an exception in this case. If you purchase this book, you will not regret it.

    Like most Pride and Prejudice fans, I too have read my sequels.

    Like most Pride and Prejudice fans, I too have read my sequels.  This is one that I can recommend without hesitation.  The writer does an excellent job of entertaining the reader and Vol. 2 is just as wonderful.  I am anxiously waiting for book 3 which you cannot buy anywhere yet.  I won't go into details about the book because I don't want to spoil it for you.  There are new characters  which make the story even more fun to read.  Buy it and judge for yourself, but don't be surprised if you will want to read it again and again!
