About the Author

Shannon Winslow is a passionate appreciator of the arts and a creative person in her own right. With her two sons grown, she now finds more time to devote to her diverse interests in music, literature, and the visual arts – writing claiming the lion’s share of her creative energies in recent years. In addition to several short stories, Ms. Winslow has authored three novels to date. The Darcys of Pemberley, a sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, is her debut. For Myself Alone, a stand-alone Austenesque story, is soon to follow. Her most recent project is a contemporary “what if” novel entitled First of Second Chances. Shannon is a life-long resident of the Pacific Northwest. She and her husband live in the log home they built in the countryside thirty-five miles south of Seattle, where she writes and paints in her studio facing Mt. Rainier.

More About the Author

Shannon Winslow says she was minding her own business - raising two sons and pursuing a very sensible career - when she was seduced by the writing bug ten years ago. Stirred by the novels of Jane Austen, she set out to produce more stories in the same vein, beginning with a sequel to her favorite, "Pride and Prejudice." "The Darcys of Pemberley" (published in August 2011) quickly became a best-seller, praised for being true to the original's characters and style. Three more Austen-inspired novels and a short story have since followed. "Winslow is one of the few authors who can channel Austen's style of prose so well that I could not tell the two apart if I tried," reports one reviewer. A life-long resident of the Pacific Northwest, Ms. Winslow resides with her husband in the log home they built in the countryside south of Seattle, where she writes and paints in her studio facing Mt. Rainier.

What fan of Pride and Prejudice hasn't wondered how Elizabeth and Darcy fared in their first few years of marriage? What kind of adventures would they share, what misfortunes would they encounter? Judging by the percentage of Austenesque novels that are Pride and Prejudice sequels, it's fair to say these thoughts occupy the minds of many. In The Darcys of Pemberley, Shannon Winslow takes the brief outline Jane gave us in the last chapter of her masterpiece and fills in the blank spaces.

When we hear of "The Darcys of Pemberley" our minds automatically think of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy. However, we should not forget there was a third Darcy living at Pemberley. Georgiana is not glossed over in Winslow's book. She is 17, nearly 18, and becoming a woman in her own right. She has suitors-yes, more than one-but a gentleman has already won her heart.

I don't think it will spoil anything if I tell you the identity of this man. She is in love with her cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam. However, there are several roadblocks in their way, not the least of which is familial obligation on his side.

Georgiana's story was only one thread woven together in The Darcys of Pemberley. No Pride and Prejudice sequel would be complete without an exploration of Lizzy and Darcy's continuing romance, and Winslow does not disappoint. They are every bit as much in love as you could wish them to be, and it was delightful to read the interchanges between them.

However, secrets and lies are creeping their way into the fabric of Pemberley. Darcy knows something he isn't telling Elizabeth, and she meanwhile has been sworn to secrecy regarding Georgiana's confusing romantic situation.

I finally finished reading the book . . . for the third time. I could not have done this if the story was not well written. After having read the book a couple of times, I knew the outcome and could focus more on detail. The author's dialogue is delightful through out and the description of the characters, very imaginative. I am not very fond of character studies where nothing happens so there was just enough action to whet the appetite.

I truly believe the author, Shannon Winslow, when she says on the book cover "Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is my favorite novel". She first introduced me to Jane's writings in the older movie of Pride and Prejudice. Closed-captioning is a requirement for me to enjoy movies and, since this is an older version, the service was not available. She literally paused the movie after two or three sentences to verbalize word for word the dialogue of the characters. I did not like Mr. Darcy until almost the very end but he turned out to be the most endearing creature. What was supposed to be a four-hour movie, turned out to be eight!!!

Shannon was successful in writing a love-sequel to Jane Austen's novel about Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. The book begins with a bizarre twist that made me wonder where she was going with the story-line. I was so into it by the end that I was laughing at some characters, sympathizing with others and clucking my tongue at an unhappy few. For those of us who have not read the book, Pride and Prejudice, Shannon wrote in such a way that the book could stand on its own, bringing to life the era of the 1800's. I highly recommend the book.

I love it when I go searching for new reads and find one I don't have to put on pre-order. This book was just such a find. I got it on Kindle and really enjoyed it. It has one for my VERY favorite couplings. But, you have to read the book to find it. The story line has some misunderstandings but they are done very well. Let me just say that the more evil Wickham is the better.The Darcys of Pemberley: The Continuing Story of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice

Why does every JAFF story have to mention the "heat" between E and D? Why does nearly every one have odd little snippets of text from the original, which clash with contemporary writing styles? And why do the dramatic situations in them seem so so forced and contrived? This one is no different, I found myself snorting in disbelief and rolling my eyes quite often while reading. Finishing this book was very difficult, I'd not recommend this book.

I read the reviews and thought for sure that I would love this book. I hated it so much I deleted it from my kindle. The story line was weak and the plot absurd. All it had, basically, was the same characters and a "continuing" storyline to connect it to the original. If you enjoyed Austen's writing style you will hate this book. It's racey drama is ridiculous. Total fail.

What a wonderful surprise!! I felt that I had just closed Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice"
and continued her story. The feeling was the same....I felt transported to Pemberley. And what wonderful twists & turns. Shannon Winslow has done a marvelous job in continuing in the vein of Jane Austen.
Anyone who loves "P & J" will love "the Darcys of Pemberley"! I could not put it down until I was finished....and as with Jane Austen's works....I wanted more!!
