One Literature Nut

Library Journal
Capitalizing on the popularity of Jane Austen sequels, three novelists put Mr. Darcy in a holiday mood. In Grange's "Christmas Present," the Darcys' holiday festivities are interrupted by the arrival of a very special guest. Carolyn Eberhart's "Mr. Darcy's Christmas Carol" mashes up Dickens with Austen, and Sharon Lathan's "A Darcy Christmas" finds Darcy and Elizabeth looking back on many years of marriage. Sure to be a hit with Austen and romance fans.

Read an Excerpt

From Mr. Darcy's Christmas Carol

When Darcy awoke, it was so dark, that looking out of the bed, he could scarcely distinguish the transparent window from the opaque walls of his chamber. He was endeavoring to pierce the darkness with his eyes when the chimes of a neighboring church struck the four quarters, so he listened for the hour. To his great astonishment, the heavy bell went on from six to seven, and from seven to eight, and regularly up to twelve, then stopped. Twelve! It was past two when he went to bed. The clock was wrong. An icicle must have gotten into the works. Twelve!

He glanced at the clock that rested on the mantel. Its rapid little pulse beat twelve and stopped.

"Why, it is not possible," said Darcy, "that I can have slept through a whole day and far into another night. It is not possible that anything has happened to the sun and this is twelve at noon!"

The idea being such an alarming one, he scrambled out of bed and groped his way to the window. He was obliged to rub the frost off with the sleeve of his dressing gown before he could see anything, and even after that could see very little. All he could make out was that it was still very foggy and extremely cold. It was a great relief that there was no noise of people running to and fro or making a great stir, as there unquestionably would have been if night had beaten off day and taken possession of the world.

Darcy went to bed again, thought about it over and over, and could make nothing of it. The more he thought, the more perplexed he was; and the more he endeavored not to think, the more he thought of his father's Ghost. It bothered him exceedingly. Every time he resolved within himself, after much mature inquiry, that it had all been a dream, his mind flew back to its first position, and presented the same problem to be worked through: Was it a dream or not?

Ding, dong!

"A quarter past," said Darcy counting.

Ding, dong!

"Half past!" said Darcy.

Ding, dong!

"A quarter to it." Darcy suddenly remembered that the Ghost had warned him of a visitation when the bell tolled one. He resolved to lie awake until the hour was past; and, considering that he could no more go to sleep than go to Heaven, this was perhaps the wisest resolution in his power.

The quarter was so long that he was more than once convinced he must have sunk into a doze unconsciously and missed the clock. At length it broke upon his listening ear.

Ding, dong!

"The hour itself," said Darcy triumphantly, "and nothing else!" He spoke before the hour bell sounded, which it now did with a deep, dull, hollow, melancholy ONE. Light flashed up in the room upon the instant, and a hand drew the curtains of his bed aside. Not the curtains at his feet nor the curtains at his back, but those to which his face was addressed. Darcy, starting up into a half-recumbent attitude, found himself face to face with the unearthly visitor who drew them.

From Christmas Present

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a married man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of an heir, and Mr. Darcy of Pemberley was just such a man. Moreover, he was soon to have that want satisfied, for his wife, Elizabeth, was expecting their first child. As he watched her reading her mail at the breakfast table, his heart swelled with pride.

She opened a second letter and smiled.

"Jane has had the baby!" she said. "A boy!"

"So Bingley is a father," said Darcy with evident pleasure.

"And Jane is a mother. Oh, my dear Jane, how proud and pleased she must be. Bingley is besotted," said Elizabeth, returning to her letter. "Jane says she can scarcely persuade him to leave the nursery to eat and sleep. She adds, and it is not to be wondered at, for little Charles is the most beautiful baby you have ever seen."

Elizabeth looked up at Darcy. "Jane would like us to stay with her for Christmas. She says she can wait no longer to show us the new baby, as well as the new house. I am sure I cannot wait to see them. I will give orders for the packing at once."

"No, we cannot go and see them just yet," said Darcy. He looked at his wife's full figure as she rose unsteadily to her feet.

"You forget your condition."

"I never forget my condition," she said with a rueful smile, resting her hand on her rounded stomach.

"We will wait a few weeks nevertheless," he said. "It will be better that way."

"What nonsense! I am perfectly able to climb into the carriage, and that is all I need to do," she said, laughing at him.

"But you might have the baby on the way!" he said.

"And I might not," she replied.

"We might be in a lonely spot, with no midwife to hand, and nothing but the coach to shelter you," he protested. "No hot water, no maids, no Mrs. Reynolds. No, Lizzy, it will not do. I am sorry, my love, but I forbid it."

Instead of meekly obeying his command, Lizzy's eyes sparkled and she said, "Ah! I knew how it would be. When we were newly married, you would deny me nothing, but now that a year and more has passed, you are showing your true colours and you expect me to obey you in everything!"

"I doubt if you have ever obeyed anyone in your life," he returned, sitting back and looking at her with a smile playing about his lips.

"No, indeed I have not, for I have a mind of my own and I like to use it," she said. "Otherwise, it might grow rusty with neglect."

He laughed. But he was not to be so easily talked out of his fears.

From A Darcy Christmas

He set the painting onto the sofa, assuring it was well supported before stepping away. He gazed at the canvas, a smile spreading as he looked upon his family. His family. The family created by him and his wife, just as he had dreamt for so many lonely years. They stood on the portico of Pemberley flanked by their precious children on the steps. All of them were smiling at the artist. A sentimental man by nature, he silently examined the newest portrait of his family and lost himself in happy memories. Unsurprisingly, since it was Christmas Day, his reminiscences focused on holiday celebrations of the past. So lost was he in quiet contemplations that he did not hear his study door opening. But he did smell the lavender water habitually worn by his wife and extended his arm without averting his attention from the painting. She slipped under his arm, nestling against his side as naturally as a bird takes to its nest, her arms encompassing his waist.

"I plan to hang it there," he nodded toward the wall above the settee. "As much as I love Gainsborough's landscape, I would prefer to have you and our children watching over me as I work.

Someday it can join the others in the Portrait Gallery, but not yet."

She nodded in agreement. "I concur. We look wonderful here. It is an amazing portrait, arriving at a perfect time."

"How true. It induced me to reflect on Christmases past. All of them have been wonderful since you came into my life."

He looked at his wife then, his blue eyes tender and inundated with love.

"All of them?" she repeated, teasing and meeting his eyes with the same intense emotion.

"Even those Christmases that were sad or difficult were special, my heart. My life is complete since we married and I would change nothing. This Christmas is the most recent in a long line of incredible memories."

"It is not over yet!" she reminded him, both of them laughing as they returned their gazes to the painting.

Silently, in sweet harmony, they admired the canvas testimonial to what they, through God's grace, had achieved in the long years of their marriage. They studied the painted images, each beloved beyond measure. The portraitist had easily identified the individual characteristics, capturing them brilliantly. Especially manifest was the love, unswerving commitment, and supreme happiness verily shining from their faces as proud parents to the next generation of Darcys.

    I loved this book

    I bought the book for Sharon Lathan's story "A Darcy Christmas" but read all three. I absolutely loved all three novellas. I highly recommend this book.

    Carolyn Eberhart's story, "Mr Darcy's Christmas Carol" is what it sounds like. Wonderful take on the Dickens' classic. Quite fun.

    Amanda Grange's story "Christmas Present" takes us to the Bingley's for a family gathering and a very special arrival. Mrs Bennet is captured wonderfully and simply 'perfect'.

    Sharon Lathan's story "A Darcy Christmas" is a wonderful recollection, or look into the future, of Christmases Darcy and Lizzy share together as it is based on her series of novels. But have no fear, she doesn't spoil anything if you are looking to read them or are in the process of reading them. It's just Christmas. You get snips of what is to come... but no details of things and relationships that happen in the novels. So don't worry about spoiling yourself. If you haven't read her novels, however I recommend them, have no fear. You will not have a hard time figuring who is who or what happened... so enjoy.

    interesting

    Liked the one story about Mr. Darcy being Scrooge and traveling through time with three ghosts. The best part was what his life was like when he married Bingley's sister, Caroline! I liked that particular story best. I think the writer was right on about what his life would have been like had he made that decision.

    Great Read!

    As a fan of Jane Austen, especially of 'Pride and Prejudice', this book was a delightful read. Not written specifically in Austen style, it was none the less, easy to understand with good plot points and easy to follow. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in following up with "P&P".

    Confusing and a lot of literary license

    These ladies have taken an age old story and applied it to Mr.Darcy.
    An intriging way to get him engaged to Elizabeth but I prefer the original way and leaving The Christmas Carol alone. Cute, can be read by a teen without the explicitness of the next book.

    Just plain awful!

    The first author (Lathan) totally plagiarised A Christmas Carol and all the stories were totally boring. Pride & Prejudice was my favorite book by Austen and these stories are lame attempts at writing like her. This book is not worth a penny. Even free it wouldn't be worth it.

    Fun book - another look into the Darcy & Elizabeth

    The first part of the book was like the Christmas Carol where the ghost of the Christmas past, present and future visited Mr Darcy. The twist was that Mr. Darcy hadn't proposed to Elizabeth, like the ended of Pride and Prejudice didn't happen.
    The next part of the book dealt with the Christmases that Darcy and Elizabeth shared with their Children throughout the year.

    It is a good book for and die hard Pride and Prejudice fans.

    Great Way To Get in the Holiday Spirit!

    A Darcy Christmas is a compilation of three novellas that focus around The Darcy's and their Christmas experiences.

    Mr. Darcy's Christmas Carol by Carolyn Eberhart
    Mr. Darcy's Christmas Carol takes place the Christmas before Elizabeth and Darcy are married. Shortly before Christmas Day Darcy is visited by the spirit of his father. His father implores him to check his arrogance and pride at the door and treat all people as he treats those in and around Pemberley. Darcy is told that he will be visited by the three Christmas spirits and to heed their messages if he wishes to have a peaceful afterlife. The three Christmas spirits visit Darcy and show him Christmas past, present, and future. Darcy must decide based on the events he is shown whether to change his ways, or be lost forever.

    Carolyn Eberhart did a fantastic job with her debut novella! Her characters were engaging, her storyline, while borrowing from Dickens' story, was all her own. She took a classic and made it unique and fitting in her own right. It was great seeing her take on A Christmas Carol. Of all the novellas in this collection this one was my favorite. It was definitely the most fulfilling of all the stories. Eberhart is a welcome addition to the world of Jane Austen fan fiction. I'm eagerly awaiting her next work.

    5 out of 5 Stars

    Christmas Present by Amanda Grange
    In Christmas Present Elizabeth is pregnant with her and Darcy's first child. Jane has just given birth to her and Charles' first born son, and are about to host Christmas at their new estate near Pemberley. Wishing to see Jane, her family, and her new nephew she convinces Darcy to take her to Jane's house, promising that if she feels any labor pains they will turn around and return to Pemberley. Within a few days time the entire Bennet clan, along with the Hurst's, Caroline Bingley, and Lady Catherine are all at Jane's home celebrating the holiday with a Christmas ball. Soon after dancing with Darcy, Elizabeth begins feeling the twangs of child-birth, and soon gives birth to a perfectly healthy baby.

    I felt as though Grange rushed this story. Many elements are left open (maybe for a future novel) and unfinished. I understand that what she wrote was a novella, but I'm not sure why she began multiple story arcs if she wasn't going to complete them. While I enjoy Grange's writing style, I do wish there was more to Christmas Present.

    3 out of 5 Stars

    A Darcy Christmas by Sharon Lathan
    Of all the novellas this is definitely the most unique and long ranging! Each chapter is dedicated to a different Christmas that the Darcy's experience. A Darcy Christmas spans the time period from the Christmas prior to Lizzie and Darcy's engagement through their 23rd Christmas as a married couple. The chapters are filled with births, deaths, marriages, happy times, and sad ones. As expected Lathan's novella is filled with new characters that add to the richness of her imaginative creation.
    Fans of Lathan's Darcy Saga novels will be glad to know that Lathan stays true to the Christmas' she's already written about in her novels, adding extra tidbits to what we already know. I really enjoyed each chapter giving us a small piece of each year of the Darcy's lives. It gave sneak peaks of what we can expect from Lathan in the future!

    Start your literary holiday tradition with this book!

    Seeing as how I love all things Darcy, I could not wait to read this!!!! Curled up under the covers on a cold, gray and windy day, I curled up with one of my favorite soundtracks (Pride & Prejudice....Jean-Yves Thibaduet) and my new Darcy Christmas book.....sigh.....I am so glad I decided not to wait until it was closer to Christmas. As I started the first story "Mr Darcy's Christmas Carol" by Carolyn Eberhart, I was hooked!!!! I have always loved the B&W version of A Christmas Carol (with Alastair Sim) and in the place of Ebeneezer I put the handsome and dashing Mr. Darcy and went on the midnight journey with him.....a very cozy entertaining look at one of literature's most beloved characters with a Christmas twist! After a quick break and a freshly poured cup of hot coffee I was once again enraptured with the Darcy's. Amanda Grange pours me into the world of the Darcy's and Bingleys in the second story "Christmas Present". We get a charming little look into the lives of our Pride & Prejudice characters as they all celebrate Christmas together with the Bingley family. To end the story with a tiny Darcy bundle was wonderful! Settling in further, well into the evening now, I enter the breathless world of my favorite couple with Sharon Lathan's "A Darcy Christmas".....as I traveled from Christmas to Christmas with these two passionate lovers, I looked into the world of the Darcy's with breathlessness.....tears.....happiness.....and all around satisfaction. I loved how Miss Lathan took us across the years with the Darcy's and looking at their Holidays spent with one another and how they grew as a couple and a family. Much applause to these three wonderful authors for creating such a wonderful book! I believe Miss Austen would have loved this! I have now officially added this book to my books that I read every holiday season....A new tradition is born....Thank you ladies!

    Great continued romance

    Any fan of pride and predudice will love this book. It answers the questions of whatever happened to Elizabeth and Darcy after marriage. I think that anyone who enjoys regency romance will love this! There are several stories, so it's a great book to read if you are busy. It's a great read whether it's the Christmas season or not. I will be looking for more from these authors.

    A good example of Pride and Prejudice "follow on"

    Written in the Austen style, these short stories follow the life of Darcy and Elizabeth through their many Christmases as husband and wife and grandparents. they are quite well done. I recommend reading them.
