Mr. Darcy’s Daughters by Elizabeth Aston

Monday, 27 October 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Fiction. Paperback from Simon & Schuster. Published in 2003. 360 pages. From Paperbackswap.com.

I have had fun reading these books that attempt to carry on where Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice leaves off. I may have to stop soon though, because they all seem to have their characters that mirror the original ones and often the storyline is pretty much the same as P & P. As it goes, this one will not end up being my favorite.

Publisher’s Summary:

Picking up twenty years after Pride and Prejudice left off, Mr. Darcy’s Daughters begins in the year 1818. Elizabeth and Darcy have gone to Constantinople, giving us an opportunity to get to know their five daughters, who have left the sheltered surroundings of Pemberley for a few months in London. While the eldest, Letitia, frets and the youngest, Alethea, practices her music, twins Georgina and Belle flirt and frolic their way through parties and balls and Camilla — levelheaded and independent — discovers what joys and sorrows the city has to offer an intelligent young woman. Readers will delight in the return of such beloved Austen creations as Elizabeth’s old nemesis Caroline Bingley (now Lady Warren), the ever-reliable Gardiners and wayward Aunt Lydia.Charming, beautifully written and full of societal intrigue and romantic high jinks, Mr. Darcy’s Daughters is a tale that would please Austen herself.

Mr. Darcy’s Daughters is one of a series by Elizabeth Aston. They are:
The Exploits & Adventures of Miss Alethea Darcy
The True Darcy Spirit
The Second Mrs. Darcy
The Darcy Connection
Mr. Darcy’s Dream (Feb 2009)

And, here’s an interview about the series and more specifically the book The Darcy Connection:
