Beyond Pride and Prejudice . . .
Beyond ‘I Do’ . . .

 

Darcy and Lizzy venture away from Pemberley to journey through England, finding friends, relatives, fun, love, and an even deeper and more sacred bond along the way.

Having embarked on the greatest adventure of all, marriage and the start of a new life together, now the Darcys take the reader on a journey through a time of prosperity, enjoyment, and security. They experience all the adventures of travel, with friends and relatives providing both companionship and complications, and with fun as their focus.

The sights and sounds, tastes and flavors of Regency England come alive. Through it all, Darcy and Lizzy continue to build a marriage filled with romance, sensuality, and the beauty of a deep, abiding love.

Synopsis:

This second installment to the tale is increasingly intense and detailed with the saga expanding in-depth.

We begin at Pemberley as Darcy, Lizzy, and Georgiana embark on a trip to Hertfordshire and then on to London. The first half of the novel covers the Season in Town where Lizzy is formally introduced as Mrs. Darcy. In between the opera, balls, reminiscences, and birthday celebrations, the Darcys are joined by many of the characters from the book including Lady Catherine de Bourgh, as well as a few new cast members. My personal favorite, Dr. George Darcy, arrives on the scene adding eccentricity and flamboyance.

Summer is spent at Pemberley with a festival extravaganza before the Darcys journey through southern Derbyshire on an extended historical tour and shopping spree. It ends with a bit of a bang, but as always the lovers persevere and grow even closer.

Through it all is the advancing of Lizzy’s pregnancy with their mutual joy and preparations for the Darcy firstborn.
