    Finally Georgiana takes center stage!

    Mr. Darcy's Little Sister by C. Allyn Pierson was first published under the title And This Our Life: Chronicles of the Darcy Family, Book 1. This is the debut novel for C. Allyn Pierson. Mr. Darcy's Little Sister takes a different route than other Pride and Prejudice sequels as it is told through the eyes of Georgiana.


    Georgiana Darcy is an angst filled teenager. She's filled with all of the confusing feelings that come with your teenage years; confusion about boys, lack of confidence, extreme self-consciousness. She's nervous about her coming out to society in the spring, about meeting her new sisters family, and about boys!

    In Mr. Darcy's Little Sister you get an intimate view into Georgiana's mind via her diary entries. You learn why she's so filled with anxiety and lacks confidence, but also get to know her inner most thoughts and feelings on her first love.

    "Since my rescue by my cousin Fitzwilliam I cannot but feel that I should make up for the way I misjudged him for so many years and, most particularly, for my nasty and spiteful tongue during the past few months. He truly does feel strongly about somethings, including his duties to his ward. I wonder how he feels about the girl herself."

    Georgiana is nervous that she's going to disgrace the family name and fall in love with the wrong sort of gentleman. Shes worried that her brother and Colonel Fitzwilliam will never approve of anyone for her. They both still treat her like a child, especially Colonel Fitzwilliam. Over the course of the novel you travel with Georgiana on her journey into society and into womanhood.

    It was an absolute joy to read this novel. Georgiana has always been one of those characters that I wished I knew more about. Austen wrote her so shy, naive, and kind, yet full of romantic notions. (Her wanting to believe Wickham and run away to be married) I always wished to get to know her better and Mr. Darcy's Little Sister gave me just such an opportunity. Pierson stays true to Austen's original characters which will delight Austen enthusiasts and purists. The Georgiana that she creates is charming and so easy to relate to! When reading Georgiana's feelings on her first ball it's easy to think back on your first school dance or the first time you danced with someone. While reading Georgiana's feelings on her first love I had the butterflies in my stomach thinking back to mine. Pierson is an excellent writer at conveying the thoughts and feelings of the characters she's writing.

    I would have liked to see more with the antagonists in the novel. They're introduced for so short a time period that the conflict of the novel feels very short.

    I've heard that Ms. Pierson is currently writing another P&P sequel book and I can only hope that it's as good as this one. (And that it gets released soon!)
