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.

I really loved the idea of this book. I still really love the idea of this book. Lydia is such a fun character to explore. Jean Burnett did a really lovely job here. My biggest gripe is that I failed to care about most of the characters in the book. The book covers a wide timespan, which in hindsight I think would make for a great series. I wish I could give it a higher rating but I just didn't get into it as much as I was hoping.
Davina Porter was brilliant as always.
