I finally succumbed to one of the modern continuations of Pride and Prejudice. While I dislike some of the author’s basic choices (she’s no Jane Austen), I find myself fascinated by how Elizabeth handles being separated from her sister Jane after they each marry. In a time when the distance between Netherfield and Pemberly meant their visits were infrequent, and letters the only means of getting news, I wonder about how Helene and I will continue once she’s in Nashville. I’ve been lax about our friendship this past year but I want to do better moving forward no matter what.
