Overview

Darcy and Anne: It is a truth universally acknowledged that Lady Catherine will never find a husband for Anne... by Judith Brocklehurst

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Lady Catherine will never find a husband for Anne…

When a fortuitous accident draws Anne away from Rosings and her overbearing mother's direct influence, she is able to think and act for herself for the first time ever. In the society of her cousins Darcy and Georgiana, and, of course, the lively Mrs. Darcy, Anne reveals a talent for writing and a zest for life.

Meanwhile, Lady Catherine is determined to choose a husband for Anne. But now that Anne has found her courage, she may not be so easy to rule.

Anne de Bourgh is a sympathetic character whose obedience and meekness were expected of women in her day. As she frees herself from these expectations, Anne discovers strength, independence, and even true love in a wonderfully satisfying coming-of-age story.

While I loved this book... it is a re-print of "A Letter From Lady Catherine"....

This was a good book focusing on Anne which I can appreciate since she really needs more of her own story. Well done and I was glad to see her strength and confidence build as the story went along.

I liked this book and I liked the characters! Ms. Brocklehurst has come up with an interesting plot. Miss Austen's characters come to life in a very imaginative and touching manner. I found Anne's character surprisingly likable and her relationship with Darcy hard not to envy! Overall a most enjoyable read which I hope Ms. Brocklehurst will follow up with another!

Intent on reading every sequel written to Pride and Prejudice, I was surprisingly pleased with this book. The character of Anne De Bourgh was expounded on, staying true (somewhat) to Jane Austen's original characterization. The book had some truly funny parts, with all the familiar characters from Pride and Prejudice remaining true to Austen's original. Darcy and Elizabeth are in the book, but the focus is on Anne and her plight of being the daughter of Lady Catherine, her triumph in finding her way, and discovering along the path her own strength. An enjoyable and entertaining read.

I enjoyed reading this "sequel" to P&P. I have read many other attempts at sequels and this one is right up there with the best. I felt that the characters were kept in their true form. Nothing was out of place and no one was made to do anything that seemed not to fit with that character as has happened in some of the other sequel books out there. My only compaint might be that it was too short. I finished it in just two evenings of reading before going to sleep. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loved P&P and has enjoyed reading some of the other sequel books.
