The Women of Pemberleyfollows the lives of five women, some from the beloved works of Jane Austen, some new from the author's imagination, into a new era of post industrial revolution England, at the start of the Victorian Age. Vast changes are in motion, as they were throughout this dynamic century. The women, like many of Jane Austen's heroines, are strong, intelligent individuals, and the depth and variety of the originalcharacters develop into a series of episodes linked together by their relationship to each other and to Pemberley, which is the heart of their community. The central themes of love, friendship, marriage, and a sense of social obligation remain as do the great political and social issues of the age. "The stories are so well told one would enjoy them even if they were not sequels to any other novel."--Book News "Yet another wonderful workby Ms. Collins."--Beverly Wong, author of Pride & Prejudice Prudence… (more)

I love Austen, especially Pride and Prejudice. This is not more of the same. It's a taste, but doesn't have the magic. ( )

I just couldn't get into this book. I tried to read through the first chapter, but everything from the weak writing - I don't think I've read the words "her husband" and "Mr. Darcy" so many times on the same page referring to the same person - to the surplus of characters that aren't properly introduced just makes this a very difficult read.

This might be good read if you haven't actually read Austen and don't love her prose. It sort of reads like a teenage YA book, to be honest. But if you have read the original P&P book, this one is going be a hard one to get down. ( )

This book was really a series of short stories starring the next generation of Pride & Prejudice characters - Elizabeth's daughter Cassandra, Jane Bingley's daughter Emma, Aunt Gardiner's daughter Emily, Col. Fitzwilliam's daughter Isabella, and Elizabeth's daughter-in-law Josie. It was amazing how their different stories still managed to blend together and advance the original characters from young lovers to grandparents. ( )
