Pemberley Revisited Summary

Pemberley Revisited by Emma Tennant

'It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a married man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a son and heir.' Elizabeth wins Darcy, and Jane wins Bingham - but do they 'live happily ever after'? Emma Tennant's bestselling sequels to "Pride and Prejudice" ingeniously pick up several threads from Jane Austen's timeless novel, in a lighthearted and affectionate look at the possible subsequent lives of the main characters. "Pemberley" tells of Elizabeth's difficulty in producing a child; while "An Unequal Marriage" continues the story of the Bennets and their wider circle into the next generation. Sparkling, stylish and ironic, with imaginative insights into the emotions and mores of eighteenth-century English high society, these are elegant and diverting social comedies by a master of the genre.
