It reads like a sequel, but I don't think the implied first book exists.

I like the juxtaposition above that makes it appear that there is a writer 
named Joan Aiken James, The Third :)

I've read two or three of her Austen books, and like them much better than 
most Austen sequels. However that isn't saying much, as most Austen sequels 
are incredibly bad, nearly as bad as novelizations of the Brontes' lives.
