Sons & Daughters: Darcy & Fitzwilliam, Book 2 Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

My objections are ones of personal preference: I can take just so much cuteness and precociousness in children's characters and their conversations just don't seem to ring true; I'm uncomfortable with first cousins and people who grew up together as cousins marrying (yes, I know it was done back then); the bantering and good-natured spoofing between Darcy and Fitzwilliam as they get old also gets old; and so on. Just little annoyances, but while I don't regret having read this one, I don't think I want anymore.
Sons and Daughters follows the children of Darcy and Fitzwilliam from childhood, into adolescence, and finally to adulthood. Darcy and Fitzwilliam are charming to watch as parents and the children are frustrating, hysterical, and endearing. The trouble they get into is entertaining and the life lessons they learn and ultimately their love lives are enjoyable to see develop.
This as a stand alone book is excellent and one not need to have read her first to enjoy this. I am glad that I gave her another try, and look forward to more by this author.
That said, it was a nice, easy read about another enduring love affair as well as the continued relationship of the men. It would have been nice not to depict them so much as overgrown adolescents so often - not really probable given their position and status.
Please proof your manuscripts: the plural of Darcy is not Darcy's but Darcys and the plural of Fitzwilliam is not Fitzwilliam's. Just one example of several mechanical issues. The dreaded word "upgrade" appeared again.
To save all of Elizabeth's dignity and virtue she must keep secrets that could cause the complete ruination of her beloved sisters never mind Elizabeth herself. She suffers terribly from the burden and stress of it all. Elizabeth's portrayal in this story is one of a woman facing terrible adversary and having the strength and courage to continue on immersing herself in her family. They are her therapy, they are what keeps her going....until she has to face the consequences when once again all the sores she's dealt with are reopened and her secrets may be revealed. This is a worthwhile book to read and I think no matter how difficult the subject this book addresses it with class and depth!
