Description

Ever wondered what Mr Darcy was really thinking? His secrets are revealed in this utterly convincing and captivating novel of love and pride, passion and prejudice.This intimate diary tells us of his entanglements with women, his dangerous friendship with Byron, his daily life in Georgian London, his mercurial mood swings calmed only by fisticuffs at Jackson's - and, most importantly, his vain struggles to conquer his longing for Elizabeth. For the first time we discover what really happened between his sister and the dastardly Wickham. How did he distract his friend Bingley from pining for his beloved Jane? Why did he propose to another young woman? Only to his diary does he tell the full story. At last we see Darcy as he really is: and, beneath his polite facade, we find a sensitive, private and passionate man.show more
