Product description

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.

Review quote

Joan Aiken author of "Jane Fairfax" I read ["Mr. Darcy's Daughters"] in two gulps and greatly enjoyed it...The invented daughters are fun -- prissy Letty, witty Camilla, musical Alethea, the unbridled twins -- and their ups and downs in London society make a lively story.
