This, though not as good as Jane Austin's 'Pride and Prejudice', will give readers the insight as to what might have happened after the ever after. Though lighter in the actualy reading than Austin's style and not as detailed- it was an enjoyable afternoons read in the sun! I would be interested to read other sequals to pride and prejudice to see other authors take on the sequal!
