We are now 20 years on from the original story of Pride and Prejudice and the next generation of Darcys, Bingleys and Maddoxes (Caroline Bingleys children) and Wickhams are starting to come of age.
Up till now the families stayed firmly together and intertwined in many ways.
It is hard to believe anything could bring them to blows.
But, extreme stress and fear can cause cracks in even the strongest relationships.
There is political unrest in England and after a long bitter winter it even touches the Darcys estate of Pemberley.
As the heir to Pemberley awakes with a slight hang over on his eighteenth birthday he can not possibly imagine what the day has in store for him.
All the family rally to try and help when Darcy and Elizabeth most need them.
Bringing their different skills to try and resolve the terrible situation the family find them selves in.
For Dr Maddox the situation at last leads him to admit how bad his eyesight has become and some other family secrets have to be revealed with unhappy results.
Who can save the day? You had better get a copy of this book and read it to find out because you know I won’t tell!
A jolly good read, lots of pent-up emotions and the younger generation are really following in their parents footsteps.
