sweet romance and I m of the opinion that she has improved her style evensince her first attempts at writing Regency Historical Fiction She certainly has a good feel for the language of that time in my opinion and she also knows the Bennets, Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy, their cousin, Mr Collins and even the unbearable Lady Catherine de Bourgh intimately to be able to write further accounts about their lives so convincingly and accurately This is an anthology which touches on a few scenarios Mr Bennet is taken ill Mary must calm Mrs Bennet s insufferable nerves and amidst all this, Lizzy must hold her own and keep the family on an even keel while her sister Jane has a newborn, colicky baby At this point a new and interesting character is introduced Dr Hodges, Mr Bennet s physician interesting and well done Ms Sharp succeeds in building a fair amount of tension between the young Darcys when he goes to London and meet up with Bingley s single sister Part of the anthology I enjoyed the most, is a new development as far as Mr Collins, the Bennet family s cousin, is concerned I won t spoil the plot, but I thought it was a good piece of writing highlighting his flaws, but showing another side to the man, now that he has a daughter, Emily to think about.The anthology has a wedding with a guest list which will leave you gaping, especially when you read who is betrothed to who and the outcome of many of these trysts, which includes a blossoming romance for Darcy s sister, Georgiana, which I thought was beautifully done Kitty s courtship and the ups and downs associated with this, as was the incessant chatter and still unlikable character of Lizzy s younger sister, Lydia altogether Jane Austen herself would have liked the way her characters moved about in a world where people are judged by the size of their fortunes, rather than the moral value of their character.I thoroughly enjoyed this anthology and recommend it to anyone who wants to continue living in this wonderful Regency world created by Jane Austen a few hundred years ago *Download Book ⇵ Longbourn and Beyond ⇲ The Bennets and their extended family find themselves embroiled in a
