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.

Wow, Wonderful, Amazing I could go on with the descriptive words about this book! I absolutely loved Dr George Darcy. He is truely an amazing character and I Knew I loved him in the Darcy Saga but I'm in love with him now.

The book starts out with Darcy & Lizzy opening up Dr Darcy's trunk and they see all of Dr George Darcy's journals. The story is told through some of George's journals and through George's experiences. We feel his pain at the tragedy and loss of his twin Alex. We see how it gives George the passion to be who he is and become an amazing Doctor. Passion is something Dr Darcy has in abundance and wanting to heal and learn he heads for India. There he meets Dr Ullas who is mentioned previously in the Darcy Saga and we get to see and know this Ullas who has mentored and become really Dr Darcy's family. We also get to see more of who George is. We see him fall in love several times and feel heartbreak. I cried for him in those moments. But we see his passion for life come through and it made me want to know him more. We also get to see how his realationship with Jharna blossomed and how they seemed to be soul mates. Jharna is also in the Darcy Saga but only through limited thoughts written in Georges journal speaking to her. I was impressed with her and loved her as much as George. But we know she's only there for a short time and George has to move on. And as the title says "Passions of Dr Darcy" this story is in no short supply. George's passions finaly take him back to England and there is definitely more passion to come.

If you haven't realised that this book is full of Dr Darcy's passions I'll say it again. George has passion in all things especially life, love, family, and healing and it comes through every page in the book.

The Dr. Darcy character was so colorful and enchanting in the books in this series from Sharon that I fell in love with him. I was thrilled when I found that she had developed the illustrious doctor into a full book. It will not disappoint you if you desire to see what made Unc Goj the man he was in the previous books. I am sure Sharon spent a lot of time researching the history of the EIC in India during this era. One felt like you were living it with Dr. George Darcy. The loves found and lost by this unique man made it hard to put the book down. I loved the ending.

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.
