9780743291361: Duty and Desire: A Novel of Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman

³There was little danger of encountering the Bennet sisters ever again.²

Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice is beloved by millions, but little is revealed in the book about the mysterious and handsome hero, Mr. Darcy. And so the question has long remained: Who is Fitzwilliam Darcy?

Pamela Aidan's trilogy finally answers that long-standing question, creating a rich parallel story that follows Darcy as he meets and falls in love with Elizabeth Bennet. Duty and Desire, the second book in the trilogy, covers the "silent time" of Austen's novel, revealing Darcy's private struggle to overcome his attraction to Elizabeth while fulfilling his roles as landlord, master, brother, and friend.

When Darcy pays a visit to an old classmate in Oxford in an attempt to shake Elizabeth from his mind, he is set upon by husband-hunting society ladies and ne'er-do-well friends from his university days, all with designs on him -- some for good and some for ill. He and his sartorial genius of a valet, Fletcher, must match wits with them all, but especially with the curious Lady Sylvanie.

Irresistibly authentic and entertaining, Duty and Desire remains true to the spirit and events of Pride and Prejudice while incorporating fascinating new characters, and is sure to dazzle Austen fans and newcomers alike.

From the Publisher:

Set vividly against the colourful historical and political background of the Regency, Pamela Aidan writes in a style comfortably at home with Jane Austen but with a wit and humour very much her own. While remaining faithful to the characters and events in Austen's original, Aidan adds her own cast of fascinating characters and, with a nod to the gothic element in Austen’s work, weaves for the reader a richly satisfying tapestry of Darcy's past and present.

About the Author:

Pamela Aidan has been a librarian for thirty years and a fan of Jane Austen even longer. She is the author of two previous books in the Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman trilogy: An Assembly Such as This and Duty and Desire. She lives with her husband in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

Descrizione libro SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. He s the fascinating romantic lead in what is perhaps the most enduringly popular novel in the English language. Yet Jane Austen reveals tantalizingly little about him, nor does she ever give readers insight into his take on the action of the book. And so the question has long remained: who is Fitzwilliam Darcy? Pamela Aidan s trilogy answers this question, creating a rich parallel story that follows Darcy as he meets and falls in love with Elizabeth Bennet. In this second installment, which covers the silent time of Austen s novel, Darcy is struggling privately with his feelings for Elizabeth but still must fulfill his roles as landlord, master, brother, and friend. When Darcy pays a visit to an old classmate in Oxford in an attempt to shake Elizabeth from his mind, he is set upon by husbandhunting society ladies and friends from his university days, all with designs on him-some for good and some for ill. Like its prequel, An Assembly Such As This, Duty and Desire will dazzle even the most discriminating of Austen fans. Aidan remains true to the original s spirit and events, masterfully capturing the Regency backdrop and incorporating fascinating new characters of her own to create an irresistibly authentic an entertaining novel.
