Overview

"An extraordinary woman in a turbulent era"

"Jane Austen herself would have been very well pleased."
Beverley Wong, author of Pride & Prejudice Prudence

The bestselling Pemberley Chronicles series continues the saga of the Darcys and Bingleys from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and introduces imaginative new characters.

Charming, beautiful, and intelligent, Cassandra Darcy is undeniably her father's daughter. When her brother Julian falters in his responsibilities as heir to Pemberley, Darcy and Elizabeth turn in desperation to their daughter, and Cassy is thrust into the role of surrogate heir.

It will take all of Cassy's inner strength and ingenuity to raise Julian's son, attend to her own happy marriage and children, and keep Pemberley's tenants satisfied. When she is faced with a series of crises--her daughter appears to be involved in an unsuitable affair and her son is unwittingly drawn into a murder investigation--Cassy must act before circumstances spin out of control.

Set against a vivid backdrop of dramatic political and social changes sweeping England during the Victorian era, Mr. Darcy's Daughter is the remarkable story of a strong-minded woman in a man's world, struggling to balance the competing demands of love and duty as a daughter, wife, mother, and sister.

"With her crisp style, lively dialogue, and a seasoning of gentle humour, Ms. Collins's latest contribution should keep her readers well satisfied."

The new installment of the Pemberley Chronicles follows the story of Cassandra Gardiner, daughter of Pride & Prejudice's Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. When Cassandra's brother, Julian, is faced with personal tragedy, he abdicates his role as Pemberley's heir to his young son, Anthony, retreating into his work and leaving it up to Cassandra to raise Anthony for the station. Meanwhile, Cassandra has a family of her own, including her daughter Lizzie, enamored of a newly arrived American. Add a mysterious death in the village, and it's a sure bet that things at Pemberley will be lively. Collins is clearly well practiced at this series and has a superb grasp of character (particularly the ones she's contributed to Austen's world). This time, however, she's bitten off slightly more than a reader can chew: three generations of several interconnected families will challenge even adept historical readers. Those expecting Austen-caliber prose will be disappointed, but this should please as a Victorian family story with familiar characters. Longtime readers will find more of the same; new ones would be better off with the original. (Nov.)
