    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    I really enjoyed this novel a lot. It was extremely well written. I really liked that it was written from a male’s point of view. It read very easily. I will have to go out and buy the rest of Sharon Lathan’s novels. I’m not always a fan of historical novels but this read very differently. I felt that I was actually there with Dr Darcy traveling with him to the exotic locales in India.

    Dr Darcy is well liked by most people. As a character Dr Darcy is a very confident man and secure with himself. The novel spans his whole life and all of the trials he deals with in medicine as well as his love life. You get to hear about his life through his narrative as well as through his journal entries written to his dead twin brother. You get to see how he grows and matures as a man and as a Doctor. I found it very fascinating. If you are a fan of Philippa Gregory you would enjoy this novel.

    Dr Darcy was well loved by his family. His journals were a way to still have him close even after he passed away. The parts of his journals were pretty neat to read because they were written in the vernacular of the time and felt really authentic. When I was reading the novel I really felt like I was there. You could really tell that the author took the time to research India and medicine to make the story accurate as she could. The plot was seamless and the story was read with comfort and ease.

    As someone who practices eastern medicine often I really like how it was incorporated into the story. Dr Darcy was much different as Doctor than I imagined him to be. He was more open to alternative healing therapies. I highly recommend this book.

    A Must Read for fans of the Pemberley family

    This book tied everything together with the previous books by Ms. Lathan. I enjoyed it very much and admired the emotional depth of all the characters. In reading the first books, Dr. Darcy impressed me as a caring physician and uncle but in this book, his real personality and humanity is displayed. I love his sense of humor and never tire of reading about the Darcy family and enjoy all the adaptations. I certainly recommend anyone who has read Ms. Lathan's works to read this one - I'm glad she wrote it and glad I read it!

    Sharon Lathan has given us a true gift with giving Dr. Darcy his own book!! Passions of Dr. Darcy. Dr. Darcy was first introduced to us in her prior books and we met him just after Darcy and Elizabeth were married and I personally fell in love with his character at once and wanted more. In the Passions of Dr. Darcy, Sharon begins with Darcy and Elizabeth finding a trunk full of journals and the story begins from there. We learn about a boy who in the moment his twin dies his life is changed forever. His thirst for knowledge, his passions to learn all he can about healing, medicine takes him to India. Sharon does her research very well on British India - traditions, the people, and medicine during that time. However the book does not just focus on that, it is so much more. Dr. Darcy is a very funny character. Dr. Darcy yearns for adventure, love and family. He is very loyal. The reader gets a very sexy Dr. Darcy, which I did not expect, but it works perfectly in the story. I also enjoyed the conversations he had with his brother James and those with his father. We also get to experience Fitzwilliam Darcy when he was younger and understand the character that Sharon portraits in her other books. Absolutely brilliant! At the end, Darcy searches for his soul mate and finds her in a very unexpected way. I bellieve the reader will love this book. It took me days to read it because I did not want it to end. Have tissue handy! Congratulations Sharon on such a wonderful book and bringing Dr. Darcy back to us. I would recommended that the reader read her other books to enjoy this one so much more, but you can read it by itself. Enjoy! Seli.

    This book was everything I wanted it to be and more! Since I heard about it from Sharon Lathan's facebook page a while back I couldn't wait to read it! I fell in love with Dr. Darcy's character and coudln't wait to learn more about him. Ms. Lathan takes you to a whole new world, where you laugh, cry, fall in love and explore the wonders of India with Dr. Darcy. As a nursing student I loved reading all the medical references and was amazing at the amount of research that must have went into creating this book. I also loved seeing some of our favorite characters back in the mix. William, and Elizabeth and baby Alexander make cameos along the way!

    I was really looking forward to spending time with Dr. Darcy. I enjoyed Sharon Lathan's Darcy Saga and fell quite in love with Dr. George. With this book, I adore him. Sharon has outdone herself. This book encompasses a huge time span and your emotions will be completely engaged. I cried with George and celebrated as well. It was lovely to see reflections of the previous novels in places, but this truly was Dr. George's book. I cried in the first 3 pages and I celebrated on the last page. Absolutely fabulous.
