Mr & Mrs Fitzwilliam Darcy by Sharon Latham
Sharon Latham in her forward says that she had never read Pride and Prejudice when she went to see the 2005 adaption with Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen.
She says she came out sporting a heart swelling with romantic sentiment and warm fuzzy feelings running amok.
And that is exactly what this book is. Mr & Mrs Fitzwilliam Darcy (two shall become one), it’s a good sized book at 309 pages.
It covers the time from the wedding for six months until May.
It chronicles every caress, every kiss, every lingering look and every steaming interlude of which there are very, very many.
Christmas and mistletoe adding a helping hand.
Unusually in this version Darcy and Lizzy are both virgins on their wedding and learn together as the weeks pass.
The only exciting plot line in the story does not happen until page 241.
So if you like loads of Romance and are not worried about lots of action you will enjoy reading this.
The story just focuses on Lizzy and Darcys growing love and affection all the other familiar characters are secondary and most don’t even put in an appearance in this book which is centered at Pemberly as they start their married life together, totally infatuated with each other.
So, now it’s onto the next installment ‘Loving Mr Darcy’ where they head to London for their first season as Man and Wife.
