Beyond Pride and Prejudice…Beyond 'I Do'…
Darcy and Lizzy venture away from Pemberley to journey through England, finding friends, relatives, fun, love, and an even deeper and more sacred bond along the way.
Having embarked on the greatest adventure of all, marriage and the start of a new life together, now the Darcys take the reader on a journey through a time of prosperity, enjoyment, and security. They experience all the adventures of travel, with friends and relatives providing both
companionship and complications, and with fun as their focus.
The sights and sounds, tastes and flavors of Regency England come alive. Through it all, Darcy and Lizzy continue to build a marriage filled with romance, sensuality, and the beauty of a deep, abiding love. (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
While many would find this book complete blasphemy, it eventually won me over with time. Initially I was a bit taken aback as there are some significant departures from regency England (particularly intimate references), yet somehow it works. It’s lovely to see Darcy and Elizabeth making a life for themselves and having a sneak peak to their “happy ever after” as it were.
I can’t say that there’s a specific plot that the book follows so I’d almost say it’s a meandering storyline of the Darcy’s lives and how they settle into new responsibilities and changes. There is some minor conflict, but nothing major. If you are an Austen devotee I’m not sure this book would be for you, but if you’re a romance fan who also enjoys Austen I think this will be more up your alley.
Warning: Contains repeated sexual content.
Rating: 4 stars!
Who should read it? Romance fans who also love Jane Austen.
