#69 A Guest Review of Expectations of Happiness by Rebecca Ann Collins

For those of you that enjoy Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen, may I please direct you to my latest guest review on the Austenprose blog?   Critically acclaimed author Rebecca Ann Collins brings her wealth of the knowledge of the Victorian era to life in her newest novel Expectations of Happiness.

Picking up seven years after the events of  S&S, we find a happily married Edward and Elinor, a sad and bored Marianne Brandon (formerly Dashwood), a traveling Colonel Brandon, and an educated Margaret Dashwood.  We are thrust into the lives of the characters just as Willoughby seems to rear his ugly head.  With Colonel Brandon away, will he try to get close to Marianne again, or will Marianne reflect on her youth and realize how badly he used her?
