About the Author
Mr. Wilkin, the author, is a student of the English Regency. He has written several books and we can expect more to come this year and in the future. A student of history, Mr. Wilkin graduates with a bachelors from UCLA. In later years he continued his studied after college and applied himself as a reenactor of history.
Along the way, Mr. Wilkin became a teacher of dance from former times. Several of those dances from the periods of history that are covered and mentioned in his novels are spelled out at the Regency Assembly Press website.
Mr. Wilkin writes in several disciplines, but maintains that writing Regencies is his favorite. Not only does he find drafting his own quite rewarding, but the sequels to the work of Jane Austen equally gratifying.
"When scripting a sequel to Austen, not only does one ask, 'What would Jane do?' as so many want to think what is the right more for society just then, but one asks this consequential question as 'What would Jane write?' Capturing the correct tone of every character from Mrs. Bennet to Lady Catherine is a trust from the many fans of the Austen canon. It is one that is not undertaken lightly and one that a writer applies themself to with diligence, passion and love."

I did enjoy this book but it was slow going at times and a little predictable. I would definitly recomend reading it.
It is also interesting to see the world more through the eyes of Colonel Fitzwilliam, to flesh out his character, to expand on the almost undefined personality of Kitty Bennet and Georgiana, and to see Elizabeth and Darcy as important but not the main characters.
This books walks the fine line between respect for the original plot and characters, and improvisation on a well-loved plot. It does so with intelligence and charm. I'm very happy to have found it, and have no hesitation in recommending it.
Though the story is Colonel Fitzwilliam's, the author keeps us up on the comings and goings of the rest of the familiar characters so no matter who your favorite P&P character is, they are probably getting some time on the page (with the exception of Lydia and Wickham).
There is suspense, humor, and poignant moments to touch many emotions in the reader.
I will say this. If you are looking for a lighthearted romantic romp, you will be disappointed. The tone of the book is spoken in a heavier, richer voice more in the style of Austen herself.
Its a great addition to Austenesque literature and I can heartily recommend it.
