These Three Remain by Pamela Aidan

These Three Remain by Pamela Aidan

A Novel of Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman

Book 3 and another throughly enjoyable read. Maybe a little slower to get started than the last two books but once up and running  it kept me well and truly engaged.

The book starts with Mr Darcy quitting London for his Easter visit to his Aunt Catherine in Kent and goes right up to the Marriage ceremony in the church at Meryton.

It is detailed and insightful and still has the plot lines from the previous book full of mystery and skullduggery with Darcy being plucked from some pretty dire situations by his steadfast friend Lord Brougham.

Sylvanie the wicked temptress of Norwycke Castle is now in London and full of vengeance.
We learn more of Darcy’s enigmatic valets background as Fletcher assists in tracking down Lydia and Wickham.

In the foot notes to this book it says that Pamela Aidan wants to write a follow up book on the Darcy’s and tie up some deliberately left loose ends.

Dy Brongham’s story intersected with Darcy and Elizabeth and their young family and the ‘of age’ Georgina Darcy during the years shortly after the Napoleonic wars.

I for one will be looking forwards to this next book with great anticipation.

I really enjoyed reading this trilogy and recommend it to other Darcy lovers.
