Her books are:

Pemberly

An Unequal Marriage

Pemberly Revisited

Emma in Love

... and others.

 

What are your thoughts on her?  Like, Love, Hate?

Hmm, I've read many classics and have never heard of her. After reading a short bio it appears she has written a few "sequels" to classics like Pride and Prejudice (Pemberly) and Jane Eyre (The French Bastard's).

So, have you read any of them or are you just looking for recommendations?
