This Sense & Sensibility sequel is a mature coming-of-age adventure/clean romance that includes some of literature’s most beloved Regency characters, along with a new cast of friends young and old.
WITH DAUGHTERS ELINOR AND MARIANNE WELL-MARRIED,
widow Francine Dashwood’s thoughts turn to the same for young
Margaret. But Francine’s widowed sister Emmeline has other plans,
suggesting they seek husbands for themselves. Emmeline is
independent and outgoing—very unlike Francine, who has always
doubted her own ability in the world at large and lived in the shadow
of her charismatic husband.
A journey to the south coast of Devonshire with friends throws the sisters
into the company of wildly attractive Admiral Tennant, recently widowed
Charles Creighton, and opinionated Cecil Walford. As each lady experiences
the diversions of the seaside resort with adventures by land and by sea, they discover romance, intrigue, renewal, and are challenged by tests of loyalty and honor. All framed by the unspoken question “Is it too late for love?”
The Pleasure of Her Company is one of a collection of sequels and side stories inspired by Jane Austen’s novels. The first, Her Summer at Pemberley (2020), tells Kitty Bennet’s story after Pride & Prejudice.
