The author first read Pride & Prejudice as a boy at school. And he has read it many times since. But on each occasion he wanted more. The question must be: Who is going to take us back to Longbourn and continue the Bennet saga?
After a time, he realised there was nothing for it: he'd have to write it himself.
When the young and good-natured George Wickham is entranced by the beautiful and beguiling Miranda Lovelace, a chain of events unfolds that awakens uncomfortable memories and emotions from a previous generation.
