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

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!

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.

My only desire is to this book justice with this review. Anyone who knows me personally knows that I have been a fan of Pride and Prejudice since my high school days. A few years back I discovered Jane Austen Fan Fiction and had to get my hands on as many copies as I could. My favorite P&P continuation till this date has to be the Darcy Saga by Ms. Lathan. Not only did she build amazing stores for the characters that we all knew and love, but she created new characters that readers could not wait to find out more about. I remember after my 3rd or 4th read through of Loving Mr Darcy, I realized how much I had grown to love the character of Dr. Darcy and how pivotal he had became to the story. I had told Ms. Lathan this on Facebook, and that is when she commented that she was working on The Passions for Dr. Darcy.

Like many of Ms. Lathan's followers I anticipated the release of her new book, and was pleasantly surprised to see it available for review on NetGalley. I dove right in as soon as It got my copy and fell in love with Dr. Darcy all over again. This book has so many things rolled up into one. You got to explore a new world, fall in love, build lasting friendships, and it would not be a story about Dr. Darcy if you did not laugh constantly.

As a nursing student I enjoyed all the medical references and appreciated all of the research that most have went into it. I loved to see how some of the characters we already met in the Darcy Sage come into play and yes, a little snippet of William and Elizabeth and the oh so precious baby Alexander sealed the deal.

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!

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.
