Editorial Reviews


Miss Brinton takes the original form of continuing the fortunes of the characters [of Jane Austen] and devising marriages... -- The London Times, 1913

From the Back Cover

The first Jane Austen sequel ever written
Originally published in 1914, this charming and original sequel to the novels of Jane Austen intertwines the lives of the most beloved characters from all six Austen novels with new characters of the author's devising.
Inventive matchmaking leads numerous pairs of lovers through the inevitable (and entertaining) difficulties they must encounter before they are united in the end.
A gratifying read for any Jane Austen enthusiast.
?This is the ultimate Jane Austen sequel.?Virtually all the characters left standing at the end of the novels-most particularly the unmarried ones-must all meet up?Broken engagements will follow, a few false trails and threatened unacceptable matches must be endured before the Forces of Good prevail.?
-Charles Wenz, Life Member of the Jane Austen Society --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
