REVISED: As the sister of Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, Georgiana is
assured of a large dowry. It's up to her to weed out the fortune hunters
among her beaus. But will she be able to determine which man most
complements her spirit? And, once she has given her word to one man, can
she train her heart to obey? Questions of loyalty, faith, conviction, and
love feed this engaging romp, which introduces the captivating vicar Jacob
Markwood, an ambitious soldier, a flirtatious abolitionist, and an ordinary
curate while continuing the lives of favorites Mr. and Mrs. Darcy and Kitty
Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
The parade of gentlemen who had sought to dance with Georgiana Darcy all averred they had been drawn by news of her singular beauty and diverse accomplishments, but her elder brother suspected that the promise of an expansive fortune had not been a deterrent. "I should have been at peace had she never been allowed out," he said, somewhat edgily, as he fell into his favorite chair by the fireplace. The ball had concluded and the house was now solemnly quiet, save for the crackling of the single fire, which had been lit to provide a reading light. Elizabeth Darcy let her eyes depart momentarily from the pages of her book to honor him with an amused glance, but she was soon reading again by firelight.
"And what do you mean by that look?" he asked, feeling himself settling back at ease after a tiresome night, which had required him to converse amiably with a great many strangers. He had performed admirably, but he was nonetheless glad to return to his own small family circle. Now that Georgiana and the familys various houseguests had retired for the night, Mr. Darcy could finally be alone with his wife.
"Why I mean nothing at all by it, Fitzwilliam," Elizabeth said, archly returning her eyes to his face.
"Hmmm," he murmured, clearly unconvinced. "You think me, perhaps, too cautious an elder brother?" -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

The only think I found a bit irritating was the Americanised spelling, which tends to jar when you think you are supposed to be reading a novel based in Regency England!
Georgiana, is now out in society, and encouraged by Elizabeth and Darcy to except callers at her homes. One caller is an obnoxous politician, who polite shy Georgian puts up with when he calls. She has other nicer callers one whome Georgiana thinks herself in love with, and gets engaged to. Unfortunately, because of a long absence before her marriage, Georgiana finds that she is really in love with someone else. All turns out well in the end.
Many of our favourite characters are still around, and not some Miss Bingley is there and still obnoxious. Jane and Mr Bingley have a young son and towards the end of the book Elizabeth and Darcy have a daughter.
I have read a few books on the growing up of Georgiana and found this to be the better one. You can almost see her grow up into a beautiful young woman between the pages of this book. I can recommend this to all Jane Austen fans, especially those who love sequels. This book is a must have.
