I really enjoyed this novella. A must read for all you P&P fans. This is the first of author Sharon Lathan’s works that I have read and I really enjoyed her writing, the characters were true to Jane Austen’s nature in writing which made me giddy. Elizabeth is wonderfully written and stubborn as ever. Sharon Lathan did Jane proud. Great read, captures you and pulls you in. Although I read this at Christmas time I can say A Darcy Christmas is wonderful any time of the year. Also might add the love scenes were tasteful not trashy. I also liked that! A win win when purchasing this book!
Perfect read for Christmas season I have read all Sharon Lathan’s novels and enjoyed most of them. This novella is high on my list, the idea of reminiscing of past Christmases is brilliant. I really enjoyed the short story, The Christmas Storytelling, because it introduced Audrey, the second daughter of Darcy and Elizabeth who was born with a disability. I hope that Ms Lathan will expand on Audrey’s life. I highly recommend this novella, a great read for anytime of year.
Enjoyable! A very different take on the passing of time during the holidays. I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to anyone.
TOUCHING PORTRAYALS Ms. Lathan’s books are among my favorites. The many vignettes she presents can touch the harts of all of us as we see the beloved Darcy and Elizabeth experiencing holiday gatherings that are the stuff of everyday life. What a pleasant holiday treat– and one with no calories, to boot!
I Love Sharon Lathan’s versions of the ongoing adventures and loving relationship of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy! Sharon Lathan has the unique quality of writing in a similar fashion of Jane Austen. I especially like the intimate family bedroom accounts with the mother, father and children and the way William finds Elizabeth both loving and desirable when pregnant and nursing the babies. Very Well Done!
Darcy Christmas a Must to Read! I enjoyed reading about the different Christmases that Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth had together with their children. Each year was different. I liked the fact that the children were getting older and you could see the different personalities. I now wish that someone would starting writing novels about the children’s lives, so that we have come full circle with the Darcy family. I enjoyed Sharon Lathan’s novels above anyone else’s about the family.
Great read Lathan once again captures the heart of all Austen lovers, with this wonderful book. It is a nice look on how Elizabeth and Darcy’s life turn out.
An Exceptionally Fine Gift To Yourself! A DARCY CHRISTMAS, by Sharon Lathan has all the love and warmth we are used to receiving from her. After almost 25 years together, with two special gifts revealed, the happy couple reflects on past Christmases – the joyful, as well as the sad and the difficult, and rejoice in the gathering of the entire family at Pemberley.
For Those Who Like Darcy in Their Christmas Sharon Lathan’s A DARCY CHRISTMAS, consists of a series of short vignettes that chronicle Darcy’s and Elizabeth’s long and happy marriage through succeeding Christmases. This tour de force, lush with detailed descriptions and dripping with love of all kinds, provides a fascinating preview of her saga. I liked the first story the best. On the Christmas Eve before he marries her, a desperately lonely and confused Darcy dreams of the unacceptable Elizabeth as his wife and the mother of their children. Is he in love with her? He can’t be. Can he?
Loved IT!! “A Darcy Christmas” is a wonderful recollection, or look into the future, of Christmases Darcy and Lizzy share together as it is based on her series of novels. But have no fear, she doesn’t spoil anything if you are looking to read them or are in the process of reading them. It’s just Christmas. You get snips of what is to come… but no details of things and relationships that happen in the novels. So don’t worry about spoiling yourself. If you haven’t read her novels, have no fear. You will not have a hard time figuring who is who or what happened… so enjoy.
Every holiday season I will be reading this! A lovely look into the lives of some of my favorite characters ever written! A new holiday tradition is born with the reading of this book.
I think you’ll enjoy it. The characters in this novella are similar to the ones you love in “Pride and Prejudice,” but there is a bonus – Ms. Lathan introduces a number of new characters, which I am sure can be found in her “Pride and Prejudice” series. I have not yet had the opportunity to read them, but after reading this novella, I am upping them on my TBR list. I think anyone who is a fan of Jane Austen or “Pride and Prejudice,” if you are considering reading this book, do so.
Following the Darcy family as it grows to 3 generations. This one starts out like a Harlequin romance, but becomes a short novel in its own right that is not very dependent upon anything created by Austen aside from the original characters. It made me slightly curious about the author’s Darcy Saga, which is basically the same idea but not restricted to only portraying Christmas Day every 2 yrs for 30 yrs. Fleshed out even more, I can imagine that some of the characters can stand quite well on their own and create an interesting novel about a large extended family during the first half of the 19th century.
I have often dreamed of being married to Mr. Darcy, so whenever there is an Austen rendition I feel compelled to read it! A Darcy Christmas by Sharon Lathan was my favorite story out of the three. I enjoyed going back in time with the Darcy’s while they reminisced about their years together. It was also fun to read about their children.
A short, sweet tale. A Darcy Christmas by Sharon Lathan was a lovely tale spanning 20+ years of marriage and numerous children. Loved the peek into holiday traditions with the Darcy’s. Prior reading of Lathan’s novels recommended to make sense of some additional characters, etc.
I really enjoyed it tremendously. It brings The Darcy’s full circle with seeing their lives through the years. You get to meet there children each xmas. I have currently read her 4 books and this short story melds wonderfully with it. This book is well worth reading as a xmas book. Very much a smiling feel good book!!!
