Pride & Prejudice Continued

Picking up at Pemberley after the Jane Austen tale Pride & Prejudice concludes, much seems the same yet much has developed in the intermittent six years. Elizabeth has grown into a woman who is both a mother to two boys and runs the house with skill. While the ball is quickly approaching, she is still orchestrating her sister's affairs as well as coordinating the event. All that changes the night before the ball when a carriage arrives at her door bearing her overwrought sister who shrieks hysterically about a murder. Told fluidly in the manner of Austen herself, the book races along in the mannered world of Pemberley as all involved try to resolve the mystery.
