A very pleasant entry in the Austen-related canon. This Australian author stays very close to the nature of the original characters (although she paints Georgiana, Darcy's sister, a bit more timid than I imagine her). The tone is calm - Elizabeth is less vivacious than in Aidan's pitch-perfect version and less lascivious than in that awful bodice-ripper of a sequel "Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife". All the original major players have a part in the story and , aside from the reference to Napoleon's escape from Elbe and a certain aspect of Lydia's fate, the style is similar to Austen's
