As Jane Austens beloved novel Pride and Prejudice comes to a close, Elizabeth Bennet proudly announces her engagement to Mr. Darcy, boasting, We are to be the happiest couple in the world. But after the nuptials, can a marriage between two people as strong-willed as Elizabeth and Darcy survive? With all the wit and style of Jane Austen, Emma Tennant brilliantly imagines both the perils and pleasure of such a marriage.
Its now a year after the wedding, and the time has come for Elizabeth and Darcy to invite their families to visit Pemberley—but not without trepidation, for any gathering that includes both Mrs. Bennet and Lady Catherine de Bourgh must occasion gaffes and hurt feelings. And when Darcy becomes increasingly distant and Elizabeth falls prey to vicious gossip, the forces of pride and prejudice are at work once again in this eminently enjoyable continuation of Pride and Prejudice (Los Angeles Times).
An irresistible return to the world of Jane Austens most popular novel and the heroine she called her favorite. Austens classic novel carried Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy through courtship and to the altar; Tennant picks up their story with an elegant and remarkably satisfying look at what might have happened after the wedding.
