    a xmas tale

    I'm always looking forward to reading Regina's new stories. This was no exception! It is always lovely to fall into Elisabeth and Fitzwilliam's adventures. Their relationship is quirky and fun, even for the times it is set in. The bonus, with Regina's stories we get to explore the other Austin characters, see where they might have ended up if Austin had written her own sequels. See how they grow, develop and how surprisingly they can change.

    I think this is another book to add to your collection, it's certainly part of mine, to revisit again and again in future holidays, to get that warm feeling of times gone by. Worth wile read for sure.

    Would you like a little Darcy with your sermon?

    This was a pretty good story bogged down by interminable religious exposition. If you're a fan of the "Christian fiction" genre, you may enjoy this P&P sequel, but if you aren't, it's really not worth slogging through the theology.

    Another great book by Regina Jeffers

    Christmas at Pemberley by Regina Jeffers is a sequel to the ever popular Pride and Prejudice. This book, as the title suggests, takes place at Christmas time a few years after the Darcy's have been married. However it's not the happily ever after as we hoped it would be. Elizabeth still hasn't produced an heir. The stress of daily life and disappointment has taken it's toll on the happy couple. Darcy in hopes of lifting Elizabeth's spirits has asked that she accompany him on a business trip before Christmas.
    The first part of this book has two major story lines going on. The first story line is Elizabeth and Darcy as they are trapped by a sudden snow storm. They take shelter in an inn. Elizabeth is anxious to get back to Pemberley but the weather keeps them grounded. The inn quickly fills up leaving a late arriving couple without accommodation. Elizabeth quickly takes a liking to the young couple, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph. Elizabeth realized that Mrs. Mary Joseph is very pregnant and makes it her mission to help the couple as much as possible.
    If you put two and two together you can see what's going to happen in this part of the story. However Regina Jeffers gives a fresh and interesting prospective that is enjoyable to read.
    The second story line takes place at Pemberley. Georgiana has been left in charge. In the original Pride and Prejudice, Georgiana is a shy unassuming girl. So for her to be hostess to a gathering of people is a big deal. While Darcy and Elizabeth are away chaos ensues. The small gathering they were expecting multiplies. When the likes of Lady Catherine, Caroline Bingley, Mrs. Bennett and Mr. Collins all gather under one roof it would try even Mother Theresa's patience. Georgiana has to deal with a lot.
    I like both of these story lines. Darcy and Elizabeth's was more sentimental. The author deals with themes such as overcoming a loss and finding your inner strength. Georgiana and Pemberley had humor, scandal and intrigue. I thought Regina Jeffers did a fantastic job with the characters.
    If you're looking for a great book to read during the holidays or you just need your daily Darcy fix, you should read this book. I enjoyed it from cover to cover. I have read a few books by Regina Jeffers and she always entertains me.

    Delightful, romantic and inspiring!

    This story is wonderful and encompasses all
    the things I wish to find in a Christmas story
    - love and family (even those that drive us a
    bit crazy), compassion and generosity, and
    the hope and reflection the season brings -
    along with a bit of mystery and intrigue and
    my favorite literary characters.
    There are essentially two separate stories
    occurring simultaneously. Mr and Mrs Darcy,
    on what is supposed to be a relaxing,
    restorative vacation following her two
    miscarriages,become stranded at a country
    inn due to the weather and while they are
    anxious to get home for Christmas, they
    make the most of the time they can spend
    alone together. They make the acquaintance
    of a Mr Joseph and his very pregnant wife,
    who are informed that there is literally no
    room in the inn for them. Elizabeth Darcy
    refuses to allow the Josephs to be turned
    away and is determined to find a solution.
    Darcy is determined to give his wife
    whatever will make her happy and give her
    purpose again and relents to put Elizabeth's
    plan in motion, but will Mr Joseph overcome
    his pride enough to accept? During their
    stay, Elizabeth and Darcy both come to
    terms with her melancholy and sense of
    failure, and his feelings of inadequacy to
    help her. With the help of Mrs Joseph, and
    the love of the devoted and supportive
    Darcy, Elizabeth accepts what she cannot
    change and begins to have hope that things
    will get better and they will soon be blessed
    with a child of their own. She also comes to
    understand that God puts people into our
    lives for a reason, at the time we most need
    them, according to His plan, not ours. One
    of my favorite parts was the letters from
    Darcy to his wife, which she carries with her
    on the trip, two of which he wrote after
    their losses. While this Darcy is wonderful at
    expressing his love and devotion for
    Elizabeth verbally, there are some emotions
    too strong for him which he is better able to
    express on paper. They are not long and
    flowing and filled with frilly words, but are
    gripping and emotional, and allow Elizabeth
    to see the grief and fear, along with the love,
    that is in his heart.
    Ms Jeffers writes a Mr and Mrs Darcy that
    are very romantic yet the intimate scenes
    are subtle and done behind closed doors.
    Theirs is a true partnership in every way.
    Darcy respects and nurtures her intelligence
    and wit, and she provides him that soft
    place to fall where he can be completely
    open and vulnerable. They are strong
    individually and challenge each other, yet
    provide a foundation for the other, which is
    how I love to see them.
    Meanwhile at Pemberley, Elizabeth's
    Christmas surprise from Darcy (in the form
    of eight of her family members)
    awaits...along with Georgiana Darcy and ten
    uninvited guests! Some end up there
    because of the weather and some have
    ulterior motives all their own. Poor
    Georgiana has no choice but to
    accommodate them, and this part of the
    story could have been completely overdone
    and raucous but it wasn't. I kept waiting for
    the Christmas pudding to hit the fan but
    instead you get this sense of bubbling
    excitement and anticipation of wondering
    what everyone will do next. Will Lady
    Catherine and exploit Elizabeth's weakness
    to prove she is an unfit Mistress of
    Pemberley? What is her real reason for
    coming to Pemberley where she knows she
    is not welcome? Will Anne grow a
    personality? What's up with the Colonel's
    friends? What will Darcy do when he finally
    gets h

    I really enjoyed this book

    This was a very enjoyable follow-up to P&P. I enjoyed the back stories and the plots that were interwoven into the characters that we all know so well. One of the beauties is that a couple of the characters got the endings that I thought they should and that made it fun for me. Very well done.
