4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 29 Dec. 2008
Of the Austen pastiches and sequels that I have read, this is my favorite. Aidan has managed to keep much of the Austenesque atmosphere while writing a story of her own in the words of her own. I enjoyed the sequels, too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Elizabeth is almost being harassed, 29 Dec. 2008
I could not enjoy this book because I felt that Darcy came too close to harassing Elizabeth who seemed to have lost too much of her energy. The continuous private meetings were unnecessary and a bit too recurrent to fit into the conventions of the period. I also felt uneasy reading recycled expressions taken from the original Pride and Prejudice. This might not be the first choice for those who appreciate the gallantry of the original Darcy.
