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.Read more ›
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.
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!!

Shallow storyline and predictable ending. Definitely not on par with the Austen classic. I read two pages per day and fell asleep. Great sleep aid.Published 16 days ago by lp
While everything that happens in this book is in character and believable, a great deal of the book is spent re-explaining and summarizing what happened in Pride and Prejudice. Read morePublished 1 month ago by A. Mountz
