"This respectful continuation of the story of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy employs creditably Austen-esque prose, laced with a wonderfully dry wit, to follow all the original characters, as well as some new ones, to the marriage bed, through childbirth, scandal, tradedy and war. Indeed, herewith you will find Mr. and Mrs. Darcy as you no doubt have already imagined them." -- Kathryn Baker, writer, "Melrose Place", "Murphy Brown"
DREAMING OF DARCY If the admirers of Regency tales and their screen adaptations (including the world-famous 1995 television version of Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth as the magnificent Mr. Darcy) have ever wondered what sort of book Jane Austen might have written using the modern insight of a 20th century popular novelist, one possible and engaging answer can be found in this surprisingly sizeable volume full of vivid descriptions and Austen-like sardonic comment presented in an elegant mock-archaic language. The story - in which a web of fascinating intrigue and adventure is gradually unveiled against the backdrop of Napoleonic wars, just as Mr. and Mrs. Darcy's passionate honeymoon draws to a close - has already been acclaimed as one of the best P&P sequels published to date. -- Maria Mirevich
