In the Arms of Mr. Darcy

In the Arms of Mr. Darcy

This book is based on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.  Lizzy and Darcy are happily married and have a son.  This book continues their story but also focuses on some of the more secondary characters of Austen's book--namely Darcy's cousin Richard Fitzwilliam, his sister Georgiana and Lizzy's sister Kitty.  These characters finally get a storyline of their own and become further developed and begin romantic relationships.  I always enjoy seeing how Lizzy and Darcy's "happily ever after" looks to an author different than Austen.  This book stays true to Austen's writing style and her vision of these characters.  It is interesting to see how many books in today's market use Austen's works as a basis of their plot.  Guess there is a reason that her books are still being read and used as a foundation today. 

I received this book from SourceBooks to review.

  1. I am constantly amazed by how many Austen spin-offs there have been lately.
