Overview

Twenty years have passed since Mr. Darcy married Elizabeth Bennet, and their family has grown. All of the Bennet sisters are married, and their children are on the threshold of adulthood and ready for entrance to proper society. War in Europe is over, and it seems that England, and our beloved families, are at peace.

But trouble lurks on the horizon. A popular revolt is brewing in Derbyshire, lead by a deluded radical. The very safety of Pemberley and Chatton House are threatened when a family member goes missing, and Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley, with the help of relatives and friends, must attempt a dangerous rescue while the wolves close in around them.

In Altman's fifth installment of "The Darcys and The Bingleys," she continues Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice not just through romance and foibles but political intrigue, action, and the occasional brutality required of life in Georgian England.

Meet the Author

Marsha Altman often feels almost unhinged from the traditional cause-and-effect universe we inhabit, anchored only by her inherent humanity and the knowledge that if she left time and space, she probably couldn't publish any more books. She lives in New York but does not write about it much, which is probably a first. She has a BA in History (British) from Brown University and an MFA in Creative Writing from the City College of New York. This is her fifth book in this series, and sixth book total. She does not own any cats but would probably be a crazy cat lady if she owned some.

    Honestly, how much time can a girl spend gushing over one series

    Honestly, how much time can a girl spend gushing over one series? Apparently never enough, because I have nothing but good things to say about the fifth installment in the Darcys and the Bingleys series by Marsha Altman.

    This one starts off a little slower than some, with hints and foreshadowing before bursting into action. And what action! Dastardly deeds, heroic rescues and a mysterious wolf roaming Derbyshire are just a few of the things that threaten to give Mr. Darcy more gray hairs.

    This story is focused for the most part on the young George Wickham, Geoffrey Darcy and Georgiana Bingley. They're practically adults now, and each have grown into distinctly different and fascinating individuals. George is as serious as his parents were wild, Geoffrey is almost scarily like his father, except perhaps a little more wisdom when it comes to understanding people. Then again, he still has that Darcy problem when it comes to talking to girls...but he also write a great letter. Georgiana Bingley is...Georgie. There really isn't much else you can say about her, save that she is truly magnificent. I will leave it to you to discover how.

    I fall in love every time I open one of these books, whether it is for the first time, or, with the early books in the series, for the tenth time. I can't recommend the Darcys and the Bingleys series highly enough.

    I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    Highly recommend for Jane Austin's lovers

    If you love the characters of Pride and Prejudice
    You will love Marsha Altman continuation of them. She stays true
    To how Jane Austin envisioned them in her writings.
    I love learning how Darcy and Elizabeth's relationship
    Blossoms.
