Jane Austin is responsible for a lot of popular literature. I've read several versions of "what happened" after the wedding bells ring in Pride and Prejudice. And, I've read at least three takes on the fate of Lydia. This is, in my humble opinion, the best.
It is a joy watching Lydia maneuvering through country life, London life, and life abroad to her advantage. She brushes through adventures with history, repeats her mistakes with aplomb, finds love (or, at least, lust) with the typical wrong man. Her enthusiasm for life remains undiminished and her friends agree.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Like others, I did not find this to be about Austen's Lydia. The character is supposed to be 19, but the narrator sounds like a middle-aged woman. I found this very disconcerting and I just couldn't get past it. Might be a good read, but a terrible book to listen to.
