I for one enjoyed the book. It tells of Colonel Brandon and Eliza's daughter (also Eliza) and her life after her parents move to Portugal. She basically raises herself and I think does a fine job of it. Only thing I didn't like is at the end of the book and how she ends it. Leaves you with a big question mark. Other than that, I loved the book and would recommend it to others.

If you write a sequel to a book, the original characters should RESEMBLE the original characters. Maryanne, Eleanor, Edward, Brandon.... I didn't see them in this book. They had become people they were not.
I really disliked this book. Perhaps if it was not suppose to be a sequel to Sense and Sensibility, and the author had started with "new characters" it would have been readable.
