Who asks Emma Tennant to write these sequels to classic Austen? She tosses in all the character like a great mish mash, then has them all running around like headless chickens. We have a hippy commune out if it's time and like her Pemberley novel a desire for babies makes the heroine act in a stupid way, believing her husband has another woman. Has the author run out of ideas? Then it is almost as if she has become tired of it and it ends, all wrapped like a fairy story, and they all live happily ever after.
UNLIKE TH OTHER RATING ON THIS BOOK STATED AS BORING I FOUND IT THOROUGLY ENJOYABLE AND IN KEEPING WITH THE STYLE OF SENSE AND SENSIBILITY - IT ENABLES YOU TO GO BACK IN TIME AND LOSE YOURSELF.................
