Pride and Prescience by Carrie Bebris

PRIDE AND PRESCIENCE is an outstanding sequel to the original classic, Pride and Prejudice. This story starts where it left off, with the marriage of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. It turns out to be a joint marriage (wedding) with Mr. Bingley and her sister, Jane. At their weddings, Caroline Bingley, Mr. Bingley's sister, announces her own engagement to an American, Mr. Frederick Parrish.

After the Parrish's spectacular wedding, strange events occur that would have usually been unheard of. Even though Caroline is happily married to a wealthy man, she has begun acts of self-destruction. These include sleepwalking, spooked horses, carriage accidents, and even arson.

The Darcys soon become wrapped in a mystery full of adventure. Not knowing the outcome, they plunge head first into the plot. They hope to revive Mrs. Parrish to her senses.

A great mystery, full of devious characters, old myths, and a capturing plot. A book that deserves a spot in the classics with its prequel. If you pick it up, you'll never be able to put it down. A great story for those into romance, mystery, and adventure. - Christine Y.
