Mr. Darcy takes a wife : Pride and prejudice continues
Linda Berdoll
Adult Fiction BERDOLL

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

Inspired by the BBC/A&E production of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Berdoll self-published this sequel as The Bar Sinister in 1999. Now her first novel has found new life with Sourcebooks. It begins the day after Darcy and Elizabeth's wedding and follows the couple through the ups and downs of married life. Other major Austen characters also appear-Elizabeth's sisters Jane and Lydia, as well as Bingley and the charmingly detestable Wickham. Berdoll has done a remarkable job of capturing the flavor of the original characters, who behave in ways that would have met Austen's approval. Unfortunately, in trying to duplicate Austen's prose style, Berdoll is at times too obtuse and flowery, making her book more difficult to follow than Jane Austen's. Still, while there have been other Pride and Prejudice sequels (e.g., Janet Aylmer's Darcy's Story; Jane Dawkins's Letters from Pemberley), this one, with its rich character development, has been the most enjoyable. Strongly recommended for popular fiction and romance collections.-Carrie A. Herrmann, Boone Cty. P.L., Union, KY (c) Copyright 2010.
