Afterword: Author's note.

A huge thank you to everyone who has (and who may in the future) read, favourited, followed or reviewed my story. I have not been able to reply to all the reviews, but I have read them all and am grateful for every piece of feedback. Hopefully it will help me to make my future efforts better.

For those who may be interested, I plan a short series of stories based on the characters of Pride and Prejudice, and these will follow over the coming months of 2018. A brief outline follows…

By the time the widowed Mrs Collins marries her handsome Colonel in the summer of the following year, many changes will have taken place at Pemberley.

The lives of Georgiana Darcy and Kitty Bennet will be forever changed by traumatic and shocking events that were happening behind the scenes during Changes and Charity, but which would only come to the surface in the days to come.

Maria Lucas will find herself caught up in intrigue, scandal, and deception during her season in London.

Mary Bennet will finally have a chance to show that she was more than a wallflower when she meets a man who will turn her life upside down.

And Lydia Bennet will come crashing back into her sisters' lives with more of the same drama and disruption that has followed her in every part of her life previously.

These, and other stories, will follow in the series, The Ladies of Meryton.
