] Anybody out there read "Emma in Love" by Emma Tennant (Stella's mom)? How 'bout Reginald Hill's "Poor Emma"?
Kali, I can highly recommend "A Visit to Highbury." I thought it was delightful and charming. It isn't really a seguel bc the action of the book takes place at the same time as the activities in "Emma". It is written by Joan Austen-Leigh. (Kali, I know that you have propbably heard of it! ;-)) It is a series of letters between Mrs. Goddard and her sister who lives in London. It is one of the few epistolary novels that I can tolerate and actively like.
Anyway, it is not as as terrible as the others seem to be and it is obvious that Austen-Leigh inherited her writing talent from the Austen side of the family!
Has anyone read her other book, "Later Days at Highbury"? It looks like I am going to have to request it through interlibrary loan.
