Overview

Witnessing his cousin marry for love and not money, as he felt destined to do, Colonel Fitzwilliam refused to himself to be jealous. He did not expect his acquaintance with the Bennet Clan to change that.

Catherine Bennet, often called Kitty, had not given a great deal of thought to how her life might change with her sisters Elizabeth and Jane becoming wed to rich and connected men. Certainly meeting Darcy's handsome cousin, a Colonel, did not affect her.

But one had to admit that the connections of the Bingleys and Darcys were quite advantageous. All sorts of men desired introductions now that she had such wealthy new brothers.

Kitty knew that Lydia may have thought herself fortunate when she had married Wickham, the first Bennet daughter to wed. Kitty, though, knew that true fortune had come to her. She just wasn't sure how best to apply herself.

From Reviewer Alison Davis: There was one scene, where Mr. Bennet is interrupted by Mrs. Bennet and I thought Jane had come back and wrote it. Many times throughout this work, I thought that. The author does justice of taking a path that could have occurred in the regency and in Jane's world. I like reading tales about what happens after Elizabeth and Jane get married. This was well done and brings in so many of the characters of their world, giving some plausible and perhaps not reasons for them all to be together again. The author did his homework, and as with so many others, the many video adaptations of Pride and Prejudice influence the storyline, but also there is a great deal of history here as well. Colonel Fitzwilliam is obviously a main character and so much of Jane's tales left the war out, that here we see that the war plays a hand in the romance. That fighting Napoleon, is a reason for the pacing of the tale, and certainly gives us the reason to see the letters to and from the Colonel that make this story so enjoyable. The letters give us a sense that time is passing, as do the events in our favorites lives, such as Lizzy and Jane. (They are new brides and then of course, they become mothers themselves.) I also like how Mr. Bennet now has sons that he can talk to and rely on. Longbourn with five daughters and wife seemed to be something he also wanted. A great read. I hope to see more from D.W.

Good! I enjoyed it. It was well written. It was nice to read about Colonel Fitzwilliam along with all the P&P characters. When I read I like to be pulled into the the story, feel what the characters are feeling, the emotions. I did not feel what I was reading the only thing was that at the end Fitzwilliam gets the courage to tell Catherine he loves her. I would have loved to feel the struggle he felt fighting his feelings for her and likewise for her. Passion. I would not read it again.
