This is one sequel you won't want to miss. Elizabeth Darcy opened the well-oiled door slowly, hesitating outside as her eyes scanned the room not stepped foot in for over a month. Tears welled. Tears welled as her gaze lingered over the odd but familiar objects, sadness mounting as she noted how many of the once-shiny instruments and immaculate tabletops were now covered with a thin layer of dust. Fitzwilliam Darcy sat on a worn leather wingback chair. On the floor in front of his knees was a massive old trunk.

It was scraped, patched in places with glued pieces of cloth and leather, dented on the right side, rusted along the edges of the metal bracings, and missing the strap to lift the lid. Yet despite the evidence of hard use and age, the trunk was structurally intact. Lizzy knew this, of course, George having told them the story of when it was gifted to him.

Yet somehow I doubt any of our dry narratives of estate management, antics of our children, or London social events will compare with his adventures.
He reached into his waistcoat pocket, removed a key, and unlocked the lid, which pushed open with the faintest of squeaks. Lizzy scooted closer and leaned in just as Darcy did, both gazing into the trunk with jaws dropping. The trunk was filled with bound books in dozens of varying sizes and types of covers.
