The Pemberley Chronicles

The weddings are over.
The guests (including millions of readers and viewers) wish the two happy couples health and happiness. As the music swells and the credits roll, two things are certain: Jane and Bingley will want for nothing, while Elizabeth and Darcy are to be the happiest couple in the world! 
The couples' personal stories of love, marriage, money, and children are woven together with the threads of social and political history of nineteenth century England. As changes in industry and agriculture affect the people of Pemberley and the neighboring countryside, the Darcys strive to be progressive and forward-looking while upholding beloved traditions. 

Specifically 3 1/2 stars. 
This was a really nice sequel if you are wanting to know what happened to everyone, but (as a warning) there was no plot, it was simply informative and sweet. The number of marriages in each chapter got a little repetitive and Lizzie cried too much for her personality, but I really did enjoy it as a nice lazy summer read, and it was interesting to find out what happened to some of the characters. :) I would consider reading the rest of the series.
