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!

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE Dr. Darcy! My favorite in the saga so far! April 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sharon Lathan continues the story of Lizzy and Darcy from Pride and Prejudice in her other works and readers first meet Dr. Darcy in Loving Mr. Darcy: Journeys Beyond Pemberley (Pride & Prejudice Continues). Dr. George Darcy is the uncle of Fitzwilliam Darcy, brother to Fitzwilliam's father James. As a huge fan of Sharon's Darcy Saga, I have loved the character of Dr. George Darcy for years. George being the dynamic, effervescent, lively character that he is, tells his own story in this novel. I eagerly anticipated this novel and it did not disappoint!

The Passions of Dr. Darcy follows Dr. George Darcy's life. It begins just before he leaves for India in 1789, and follows his travels over the next thirty years. As a handsome, intelligent and highly skilled physician, George is well respected in India. As a nurse, I enjoyed reading about the historical medical practices. Fascinating but not overly graphic if you're not one that has the stomach for intense medical descriptions, but told within bounds of the story, not simply for expounding on the history of medicine.

The Passions of Dr. Darcy not only shows George's passion for healing and medicine, but for India, its people, and its culture. George travels widely across India, throughout the years. The descriptions of India are wonderful; I could readily picture each scene in my mind. There's a glossary and map at the back of the book to help better follow along with George's travels as well as definitions for the Indian words encountered in the story.

The story also follows George's passion for life, his family and women. George's devotion to his family and friends is evident throughout the story.

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!!

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

I really enjoyed this novel a lot. It was extremely well written. I really liked that it was written from a male’s point of view. It read very easily. I will have to go out and buy the rest of Sharon Lathan’s novels. I’m not always a fan of historical novels but this read very differently. I felt that I was actually there with Dr Darcy traveling with him to the exotic locales in India.

Dr Darcy is well liked by most people. As a character Dr Darcy is a very confident man and secure with himself. The novel spans his whole life and all of the trials he deals with in medicine as well as his love life. You get to hear about his life through his narrative as well as through his journal entries written to his dead twin brother. You get to see how he grows and matures as a man and as a Doctor. I found it very fascinating. If you are a fan of Philippa Gregory you would enjoy this novel.

Dr Darcy was well loved by his family. His journals were a way to still have him close even after he passed away. The parts of his journals were pretty neat to read because they were written in the vernacular of the time and felt really authentic. When I was reading the novel I really felt like I was there. You could really tell that the author took the time to research India and medicine to make the story accurate as she could. The plot was seamless and the story was read with comfort and ease.

As someone who practices eastern medicine often I really like how it was incorporated into the story. Dr Darcy was much different as Doctor than I imagined him to be. He was more open to alternative healing therapies. I highly recommend this book.
