Book Description

George Darcy is the second son of a wealthy landowner in Georgian Era England and, at 22, is considered to be a brilliant, rising star in England's field of medicine. Dr. Darcy refuses the easy, comfortable pathway and enlists as a physician with the British East India Company, embarking on a personal quest, where he strives to change the face of medicine while yearning to fill the void left within his soul at the death of his twin. His search for family, enduring love, and lost companionship is a quest not wholly realized until his return to England and Pemberley thirty years later. It is there that a new generation of family and friends will heal the physician, and to his greatest surprise, the true love of his life awaits.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's a splendid tale of one man's determination . . . to be the best in his chosen profession . . . and to find love." - New York Journal of Books

"The Passions of Dr. Darcy is that rarity these days, the large novel. Right from the beginning, the story grabs you and never lets you go. A true joy to read." - Linda Banche and Her Historical Hilarity

"The story is entertaining, especially for those who take pleasure, as I did, in details of 18th-century medicine and learning about the exotic India of this era." - Historical Novels Review

"In short, Lathan has made a touching story of a man who finds himself in India. It was a journey which I was happy to take and I expected no different from a work penned by Lathan. I'm so glad that I got to read this installment of the Darcy saga and this is definitely a work to add to your own lists." - Austenprose

"If you're a fan of books that focus on character development, you need to add this one to your list." - Reflections of a Book Addict

"I don't know really how to sum this novel up coherently, so let me just say this; an amazing read full of romance and family.
" - The Little Munchkin

"
All in all, THE PASSIONS OF DR. DARCY is an enjoyable read, that Pride and Prejudice fans should enjoy." - Book Lover and Procrastinator

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for Dr. George! April 2, 2013
By Cherri
Format:Paperback
I love that Sharon Lathan opened the story of Dr George Darcy with his passing. Darcy and Lizzy are going through his trunk (with reverence), in that trunk are a lifetime of journals, keepsakes and memories. How better to get the true measure of a man? And thus begins the story...

I have read all of Sharon's P&P fanfic and have enjoyed Dr. George's character. I was so pleased to win a advance copy in a contest, now I could find out what George Darcy's story was! I found him to be a soulful, sometimes sad, kind, brilliant and passionate man. Sharon starts his story as he is a very young man leaving for India. He is trying to leave hurtful memories of death behind. George however finds in time that he can run but he cannot hide. He takes us on his medical and spiritual adventures through the years in India. We learn of his loves found and lost, and finally his journey home to be reunited with family and a new love he never imagined.

Sharon must have put ton's of research into this story. It is chock full of geographic, medical practice's and customs of India. It was extremely interesting and very informative. Even though I love all Sharon's books I've been known to complain about how much time her characters (Darcy and Lizzy mostly) spend in the bedroom, on this outing I feel she hit a good balance between story and passion. I enjoyed this book immensely, I hope others do as well.

Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Her best book!!! May 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all of Ms. Lathan's Pemberley books and enjoyed all but one. This book is by far the best! The story of Dr. Darcy fills in all the blanks of his life that were missing in the other books, and adds a fascinating dimension to the Pemberly saga. If you haven't read any of her other books, read this one, it can stand alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved to see Dr. Darcy April 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I have really enjoyed the most recent books written by Ms. Lanthan. The first 3 of the series were good, but really covered very little time of Elizabeth's and William's lifes. Dr. Darcy has always been an interesting character, and given the author's medical/nursing background, I am happy that he got his own story. I like how the narrative ties in to the other books, even with some of the small time changes that are addressed by the author.
I really wish the book was longer!

By Cynthia
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this while I was off work for surgery. It was an excellent read! Taking me away from the bed and the pain to the lovely world of the Darcys. Reading this book was a pleasure. I would recommend it to anyone who has read and loved the book Pride & Prejudice. George Darcy is the man I want to meet. Wonderful story!!

I so liked that Sharon Lathan combined the history of India with a story that spanned a number of years and brought the family members together in a very believable and most interesting read.
Very highly recommended.

With explicit scenes, if that is what you crave. What a shame to use one of the best novels in the English language as a springboard for porn, soft or not. Who next? Dorothy and the Tinman en flagrante? This book is trash and if you love Jane Austen, save your money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great character formation! April 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'd already fell in love with Dr. George Darcy (William's far-away Uncle who lives in India).

These wonderful moments of his early years with the British East India Company as a young doctor in the 'wilds' of India; and the kinship that develops with his mentor and family.

If you've read the series by Sharon Lathan, you know "Unca Goj" (as the eldest Darcy child, Alexander, calls his Great Uncle).

For Pride & Prejudice fans (even if you haven't read Ms. Lathan's sequels) will delight in this Darcy family member!
