I saw Pride and Prejudice with Kiera Knightly and Matthew MacFadyen and fell in love with it. Since seeing the movie I have read the book three times. It is my all time favorite book and movie. Just last weekend I was at Barnes & Noble and just came across your books. I was so ecstatic that I was going to buy all of them but decided I could only afford the first one. I read it non-stop in three days (during my lunch hour @ work and every night). I just finished it today and going to buy the second one on the way home today.

I loved the way you made Fitzwilliam a virgin. I believe this says so much about his character and when he did find love it would be "true love" and forever. I absolutely see Matthew MacFadyen's cast as Fitzwilliam Darcy and he is such an adorable "Adonis". He is and always will be Darcy for as long as I breathe. He did such a great job with the part and with your writing I can totally picture him facial expressions and him loosening up due to being truly happy with Elizabeth.

Please keep the books coming. Now I can see what happened with them after opening their hearts and souls to each other.
Thank you,
Kimberly

Sharon,
I fell upon Pride and Prejudice on a television channel. I had seen the pbs version but never had a chance to see it in the theater. I too am beyond hooked. So good to see I am not alone. I think the director did a superb job in casting as the 2 main characters are explosive together. I immediately went out to buy the DVD and to the local bookstore to buy anything and everything Jane Austen or related to her. That is how I found your books and you have me hooked. I can't wait until the new one comes out. I can watch this movie over and over and can't seem to get enough. I have always been in love with that era and can easily see myself living and breathing that time. Thanks for being such a great writer and for transporting me to a better place in these difficult times.

I discovered Darcy & Lizzy when I was going through a particularly rough patch in my own life, and I believe that these characters truly helped me through it - they were my escape from an otherwise dreadful experience. I love a good book as much as the next gal, but somehow Austen's works, particularly P&P, have invaded my soul like no other work of art. I have tried a number of the 'sequels', and I must say that I have enjoyed none so much as yours. My only complaint is that there are not more books in the series! I'm afraid I will need you to continue writing these books, for I do not know what I shall do otherwise. Of course I have not yet read your third book, but I can say confidently that I will need to know what happens in the lives of these two lovers beyond year's end. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Sharon. And please please please keep writing!

I cannot put into words how much your books have meant to me. When I read Pride and Prejudice all I thought about was what happened next. You gave me exactly what I imagined there life would be. The moment I found your first book, Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, I filled with excitement. I could not wait for Loving Mr, Darcy to come out. So I just want to thank you for writing such amazing books and tell the story of the happiness of the greatest couple in literature.

Hi Sharon,
I am a huge fan of Jane Austen's and have read many spin off books by other authors who have expanded upon Jane's original characters.
I stumbled across your book in Target last week, while out school shopping for the kids. I CAN NOT put the book down!!!!!
I want you to know that you have brought Elizabeth and William to life for me!!! and it is by far the best book I have read on Jane's beloved couple.
I can not wait for the next installments in September and Jan 2010!!!
Please continue to write you have such a gift. I normally pass on books that I have already read but this one and the next two will remain in my book collection.
Dont' stop writing and I know I speak for everyone we won't stop reading either!!!!

Hi Sharon,
I have read all three of your lovely books and find that I would love to read more especially about Dr Darcy. He is such a wonderful character and deserves a book of his own. I hope too that you are going to carry on writing about our favorite characters as I will be on the list for the next ones out. Best wishes for the future books

Wow! I have been obsessed with this book from the moment I picked it up. I would lie awake thinking about what was going to happen next and find myself upstairs in my little reading nook, until the wee hours of the morning. And then, I would take it to work to read on breaks and lunch - something I rarely feel compelled to do!

So, to be more specific about what I loved about this tale of William and Elizabeth's new life... I loved the tie-ins to the movie. I picture Keira and Matthew as these characters perfectly. I love how Darcy is so manly and virile, but so charming and endearingly sentimental... who couldn't love his cabinet of mementos, especially those related to Lizzy? I adore the idea of a passionate, loving, and wanton discovery of each other after all the suffering and patience. Marriage does not have to be dull! 🙂

Matthew Macfadyen... yum! Absolute perfection as Mr Darcy. That voice, those eyes and lips... oh my!

I could go on and on, but let me just end by saying that I am extremely happy to have found this site and your book. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment. Thank you for bringing my favorite characters to life in such an enchanting manner!

thanks again!!

I just loved this book. Darcy and Lizzie enjoyed to have happiness after all the struggles to get there. The details of their first weeks together were fabulous. I couldn't put it down. Immediately after reading it, I wanted to start over again so I could savor the details one more time. I can't wait for the next book! Thank you for writing such an enjoyable book!

I absolutely loved this first book. I can not wait to go out and buy it so that I can read it whenever. I could not put it down. I can not wait for the next book. What a great story, the love and passion is exquiste. It makes me wish that I was Elizabeth. Thanks for writing a great love story that had me spell bound on the first page. My husband loved to watch me read this book. He could always tell when I got to a part that I absolutely loved. Keep up the superb work! THANKS!!!!!!!

Wow! I never cease to be amazed at what my baby sister has accomplished in her life. I haven't been here in a long time and while I have no real defense other than the fact I work all day on a computer and rarely sit down on one of the three computers we have at home, I can see I have missed a great deal. It's a very strange surreal feeling to see your sister in this light. It certainly not that I didn't think she had this talent in her, I always knew she was destined to do wonderful things, I just didn't know her talents would be in the literary field. Her and I both have always been avid readers and other than writing a jolly good letter (back when we used to do such things), and a cute line or two in a card, I didn't realize she had this all bubbling around inside waiting for the inspiration to burst forth. I love her story and the Darcy's feel like family now. We've always been history buffs, so I see where that came from, and we dearly love a good 'forever after' love story.....I guess I should have seen this coming! The very best thing of course is that her dreams are all coming true. I love you little sister. Jani

Absolutely wonderful - I couldn't put it down and read it 3 times before relenting to let my 26 year old daughter read it. On the way out to buy two more. Can't wait for the next one!!!! Thank you so much

Dearest Sharon,
Those who have dreams, whether they be buried under the responsibilities and obligations of our day or simply forgotten as we have aged, need to have examples to look upon so we do not feel alone in our endeavors. I have dreams, ones that I may never realize, others I am still hopeful for......

My oldest child and I were at a book store. He went his way, off on his own, in search of his own interests. After a moment of feeling lonesome, reflecting on one of the most difficult years of my life after he had chosen to no longer live with me but reside with his father, I wandered through the store without purpose. I had exhausted all books by my favorite authors long ago and had found no one new that sparked my interest.

I truly believe that someone was looking over me. I was led to your book. It happened to be prominently displayed on top of a 5 foot bookcase and I stopped, stunned that someone had written a sequel. I had been re-reading p&p that previous week. My marriage had struggled during the year, secondary to my child's decision and felt lonely, tired, and a sadness that I couldn't seem to shake. I wanted some joy. Jane Austen always gave me that joy.

So I hope you can imagine my surprise and excitement when I discovered your book. I had not heard of you, your books, your website. I didn't even read the back cover. I bought it and started reading that night. It provided me with that joy I was so desperately seeking. It started my heart on the road to healing and restored my hope in romance, love, and marriage.

I was determined to find the sequel, from the teaser you provided at the end of your book, I knew I had to get it. I just assumed you had been established long ago and I had discovered a saga that had been on the market for years.

I know this is a long post. But I felt it was adamant to share my words with you. I need you to know that I loved your book and I look forward to the release of your next edition, with great impatience. I will most likely pre-order it in the hopes that I will get it quicker!

I read some of the reviews. They are distasteful. And I am so sorry for the pain you have endured. However, the girls at work saw me reading your book. They were interested in obtaining it after I shared what it was and was about. I, too, work in a level 3 NICU, you see. I work with a great bunch of gals and we are always passing good books around. Your's is likely to take off fast in our unit. You have that effect.

Please take time and pray on this. It is best to utilize the gifts that have been bestowed upon us, those gifts we have are to be shared with others to enrich their lives.

You have enriched mine. And I thank you from my heart, one that has been bruised and is now on its way to healing, all because of romance and joy that was reintroduced into my life from your eloquent words.
May your weekend be one of reflection, joy, and blessings during this Easter season.

Hi Sharon, just read your latest blog post and was very sad! I can't imagine what it must be like to have the sort of scathing criticism you have had to put up with. But I wonder, why do you read it? Why not just ignore it? Your publisher seems to think otherwise and when it is so hard for good writers to get published these days doesn't that reaffirm to you that they disagree?

I've only read your first novel that was published by Sourcebooks and I loved it and did blog about it on both my blogs, which I've never done before. Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next book release and will be buying it directly from overseas so that I can have it quickly.

Chin up Sharon, get someone to give you some 'tough love', and please stop reading those negative reviews. Whingers are far louder than the rest of us who quietly and happily go about our lives and the act of living. I haven't read one negative review and nor will I. In fact, and I can't tell you who it was, but I read a good review on one of the blogs I follow and that's why I immediately ordered your book.
Take care

Sharon,
First let me say that I am not a genius at emails. I had to search a while to find where to post this. I enjoyed your book very deeply however it was the encouraging words in the interview that has brought me here. Maybe I am feeling a little to emotional so I apologize.

I am about to celebrate my 20th anniversary with my one and only love. However has been working out of town as of late. My only daughter, a high school senior is on a cruise to the Bahamas with Girl Scouts which leaves me alone to my own idle thinking...

I have always been drawn to movies and books that seem to have the same theme. Poor undeserving girls with strong wills and minds of their own that fall in love with strong, sometimes older-ish men- Sabrina ( either movie version), for instance and also my other favorite book Jane Eyre. I guess I have always been a romantic. I know happy ending aren't in store for everyone. I have had troubles also. My deep felt connection with P&P is that I have 5 sisters. My oldest, not youngest made the Lydia mistake. My second to oldest is Jane in the flesh (name is Mary Jane) I did not marry for wealth, but my story is close to Lizzy's. My husband is 17 years older than I am. He says that I was the last lady to capture the heart of the TRUE last bachelor. I was only 18 when I met him. I went to work for him in his t-shirt shop as an airbrush artist.(married the boss) We worked everyday together for six years before we actually had our first date. I got to know him very well. I was 24 years old when we married. We have many, many story's to share with our daughter. A lot of them my husband has to address as "before I met your mother" -stories of his being in the carnival business, a kite salesman in Puerto Rico, working as a sound tech for big arena concerts...on and on. Those stories enthrall her. But the one subject she likes for ME to talk about is why did I marry him . So when she had to read P&P in school, we had some great character discussions that led to my own experiences with her father.

I love the MM KK version of P&P. I also love the A&E version. I get two totally different feelings and views out of each telling. Jane Austen's book is totally different in my head from either of these movies. I just can't get enough of the stories of Darcy & Lizzy. They are so familiar to me. I am glad that you let us readers know which version to see in our minds eye when we are reading. It truly makes a difference. I can not wait for the next book to come out!! SEPT REALLY!! My poor employees have to suffer with my obsession. I am forever making t-shirts with sayings on them they do not get until I tell them the meaning then I get the eyes rolling and the groans of NOT AGAIN. I think they are finally learning not to ask when I print a shirt that says for instance Pemberley Stables or something. I just let them assume it is for another polo team that has ventured into our town.

So thank you for your insight on your writing. It has been quit soothing when I am missing my family on a day such as this when I am left to my own Idle mind... If only I could express myself like you. Sorry for the bad grammar.

Just finished Mr. and Mrs. FD. A wonderful experience. I am a Jane Austen fan for the past 40 yrs. I have read the original book so many times over the years. In addition I have seen every one of the movies (love the older ones). Always thought the book ended too soon and my imagination would have to fill in the gaps. I want to thank you so much. Your style of writing flows so similar to original author. It was wonderful. Anxiously waiting for September release. I actually had to stop myself from pulling over to the side of the road and start reading the book on my way home from book store. After reading the first few pages in the bookstore it was hard to put it down. When I got home, I immediately lit the fire, made the tea and settled down on the sofa for a read that lasted a good four hours. Could not put it down until I finished. Next step was to Google for the release date of the next book. Waiting till September seems like forever. Your book will hold a place of honor with the other Austen novels I hold dear to my heart. I have never emailed an author before re their releases. But your book made such a favorable impression I just couldn't resist. Thanks so much. Deb

I stumbled across your book recently. I have read many other Pride and Prejudice sequels, but yours is now my new favorite! I have read the book twice and can't wait for the rest of the story. You have captured what I have always thought Darcy and Elizabeth's marriage would be like. Your Mr. Darcy is just the gentleman I always dreamed he would be. Thank you so much for writing it!

I just want to say I just finished reading "Two Shall Become One". I purchased it about three weeks ago. I work all the time and do not get home til about 4am. I have little time to read but any spare time I do have I try to pick up a book and read. I have about four books that I had started reading. My friends and I started a book club three weeks ago and we all love period books. I believe I love Jane Austen's books the most in my group. That being said we were at Barnes and Noble picking out our first book to read for our book club and I looked at the title but I was captivated by the presentation of the book the illustration. In any case I informed by friends we need to read this one first even though it was not my turn to pick out the first book. I believe I am the first to finish the book and I love it. I can not get enough of it. I plan on reading it again but then towards the end of the book it stated a sneak preview to 'journeys beyond pemberley" is this a new book? So I made haste and eagerly googled Mrs. Sharon Lathan and so here I am. I love it, love it, love it. I will have to recommend the second book to the club since it is my turn to choose this next time.

Sharon!
OMG! I just finished reading your book! I came across it at a local store I frequent and it wasn't in my plans to purchase anything... but one look at the title I pictured Mr. Darcy and said this will be good! I wasn't disappointing! The first time I watched the movie I cried like a baby! Knowing somehow that a love like that is more and more impossible to find. These generations it is not easy to forget the "vices and follies of others" but well your book has fulfilled every part I wanted continued! Steamy, sexy and EXTREMELY LOVING! It is and will be a saga that I expect to continue! Thank you for fulfilling (mine) and many others fantasies! 🙂 keep it coming!
(somehow it has taught me to hope that there can be such a LOVE out there...)

Dear Sharon,
I am completely fascinated by your site and your story! I have been reading and rereading Jane Austen's novels since I was 10. They have always been my "meditative" books. Funny as it is, considering Master Degree in English Literature and an enormous amount of books I am to read in my life, they have always been those books that I needed to have with me to think about life, love, to feel I'm alive, that I am a woman.

I remember watching "Pride and Prejudice" TV series when I was loved, when I was heart-broken, hoping for better, always being reminded by this book that a quick witted, sarcastic woman can find a man to appreciate and worship her.

I didn't watch this movie as I thought I didn't want to see another Lizzie. But I watched it today, because I felt lonely and lost, far away from my country, in Winnipeg, Canada, the city where winter is six months long and everything is sleeping under a thickest blanket of snow.

I simply love it. And I think, it is forever.

I was browsing the net just idly looking for pictures from the movie and found your site. I'm ordering your books from Amazon today and will be still waiting for published ones. I love to put my books on a shelf. I am sure I'm going to love them, considering how much I liked the passages you have online.

I won't tell you how much I admire your style, your talent... I'm going to say how much I admire your bravery! Knowing how many people will have their feelings touched and challenged by your books and still being courageous enough to publish them! I know they are worth it and I just want to express my support to you.

Remember, people should be able to read your books, even if they still don't know it. They are going to love your saga!

Hello Sharon,
For many years I am a fan of Jane Austin novel pride and prejudice. The first time I became acquainted with it was in the BBC version with Colin Firth as Mr Darcy. Because I loved the story I ordered the novel and I have being reading it over and over. (It is in my language, Dutch, but I will order an English copy) When the picture of this novel came out I was a little septic about it. I thought by myself, who can ever compete with Colin as Mr Darcy. But this feeling went away very soon when I start looking at the film. Until that day I never knew Matthew Macfadyen, but he gave such a perfect picture of Mr Darcy, that I was even more sorry he did not do the BBC version of it!

I like his acting work and find it so pity that here in Belgium he is so unknowen, I can hardly find any films of him. I find 1 single copy of Death at a Funeral, and because I search on the internet I knew about Little Dorrit.

I am very happy to have found your website and that I read that there will be a sequel on Pride and Prejudice. I hope I can order it here in Belgium!!!
Greetings from Belgium Ils

Sharon,
Wow - I just finished Journeys Beyond Pemberley and am blown away by your amazing level of detail in this book. Besides continuing the wonderful story of William and Lizzy, the historical backdrop of the book is unbelievable - I actually felt like I could see all the places where the Darcys traveled. Though I love so many aspects of this book, I have to say that your filling in details about William after the failure of his first marriage proposal to Lizzy added even more depth to his point of view. I don't have enough words to say how beautiful your storytelling skills are and highly recommend this book. Fortunately for me, I already have The Darcy's at Year's End so I can start reading it tonight. Thank you again for another book that brings happy tears to my eyes ;D

Sharon,
I can hardly begin to tell you how much I love your books. They are well written and thoroughly researched. I greatly appreciate that you put so much time and effort in to making them historically accurate. Since I have a degree in history I greatly appreciate this and respect the time it took to do so. I love the way you write the story. The way you make the characters come alive is wonderful. I love the personalities that have developed beyond the book and the movie.

I am so excited that there is more to this story. I just wanted you to know that your work is greatly appreciated and that I am excited about the book in March and look forward to any others you publish. The website changes are great and I love the cover of the new book!

Thank you for keeping true romantics entertained and writing such a wonderful story. I have always loved Pride and Prejudice, must have been the name. 🙂 I feel even more in love with it after the 2005 movie and then happened upon your website a year ago. I have now read all of the TSBO books that you self-published multiple times and truly love them.
Keep up the wonderful work!

Hello again, Sharon!
After reading over 100 P&P sequels by different authors, I definitely would say yours is the best. Finally my daughter told me that 2 new sequels of the Darcy Saga series are now available and I just ordered them through Amazon. I can hardly wait to receive them and to devour them, although I think I will read the first installment over again just as a refreshment for things to come. Thanks for sharing your beautiful talent with us readers! And please keep on writing!!

Dear Sharon...it was a fun day at work when I found out from a co-worker, and one of your biggest fans, about your sequel to Pride and Prejudice. I couldn't wait to read it! I was not disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed the direction you went with Lizzy and Darcy....a very romantic and intimate portrayal of married love. I look forward to following your books in the future.

Dear Sharon,
My name's Brigitte, I'm French and I'm a teacher .I'm married and have two sons, one is at college and the other at high school, just like you! we have a lot of similarities!as you will read below..

Five days ago I experienced what you did that weekend of thanksgiving 2005. I saw Pride and Prejudice!And I must confess that I didn't leave the film unhurt.

Just like you I had never read the book nor seen any previous adaptation; Like you I had seen sense and sensibility and knew Jane Austen as a writer of classic novel from the 18th century, that's all...just heard about Pride and Prejudice..

And then it happened!I watched the movie and I loved it. I loved the directing, the acting, the characters and the beautiful houses and beautiful photography..the music and...I fell for Mr Darcy ! I can't explain ..I suppose it's not only because of Mr Darcy that I was so intensively touched by the movie .I am a huge romantic too but I saw other moving romantic films with handsome actors.. Wuthering heights (Fiennes), Jane Eyre(W.Hurt) ...which didn't put me head over heels (Is it the correct expression ?)
.but here it was different ..like you, he has bewitched me and since then I have read the novel , watched the film again and again and spent my time surfing the internet for info, watching montage videos on U tube, I even bought the BBC miniseries ! but here nothing happened, it fell flat, something..or someone was missing..so I realized it was not only mr Darcy.. who was responsible for my heart big sighs..but this actor who played Mr Darcy or the combination of both maybe!this is what is dangerous, the combination of both.I got it!
and ...I fell on your blog, I immediately read everything you wrote and ordered your book .I will have it in a few days and I'm looking forward to reading it especially as I understood that you are a fan of MacFadyen and I'm particularly interested in reading that sequel thinking that you had HIM in mind when writing which is maybe not the case for the other sequels already published.

Thank you for your wonderful, sweet book, Two Shall Become One. I absolutely love it and have read it so many times already, just as I have watched P&P with Matthew Macfadyen a million times. Like other fans, I have imagined Darcy and Elizabeth after their marriage and believe that their marriage must be perfect. I, for one, never want to read a book or imagine that Darcy is indifferent to Elizabeth for any reason. I look forward to your next book. Hurry!

Hi Sharon!
Since the day I discovered Pride & Prejudice sequels, I just can't stop reading them... I read a lot of sequels and I have to admit that "Two shall become one" is my favorite of all! Your story is exactly how I was imagining there life; romantic, passionate and full of happiness. And I completely fall in love with the 2005 movie even more than with the BBC series. Matthew Macfadyen is THE perfect Darcy! So I enjoyed the fact that you based your story on the movie. And since my first language is french, well it made me practice my English. And now I have in mind to translate the novel in french(for my own use of course) as a hobby... Yeah I know I have nothing to do... hihi! But I can't help it, I'm an addict!
I can't wait for your sequels. Keep on the really good work!!

I am most excited and am hopeful your next two installments will be out before the end of the summer. Congratulations of so many things in you life. This site is awesome.

hello Sharon, I have recently discovered your wonderful book, although not recent enough, as i have missed all the new passage extracts. Although after backtracking some of the messages from your devoted fan base i have luckily been able to 'catch up'to a certain extent. i found your book quite similar to the Linda Berdoll adaptations, with the exception of differing characters. i am truly waiting in increased anticipation for publishing of the second and third volumes. i hope sourcebooks realize the true extent of your fan base so they can hurry up the process of distributing your work.
keep up the magnificent work. you truly sound like an amazing and intelligent woman.

Hello Sharon.
I too became obsessed with P&P after seeing the 2005 movie. I have read a couple of 'sequels' as well as the original text and watched the BBC series. I love them all! I purchased your book on Amazon and just finished it. I really enjoyed it and am glad to read that you will be continuing your series which I look forward to reading.
Thank-you.

Hi Sharon!
I've only just learnt about your wonderful site from newly made friends on one of the MM forums. I sat for hours yesterday evening gazing at the beautiful pics. Thank you so much - I will continue this evening.

I live in Sweden and this version of P&P was shown (as far as I know) on TV for the first time about 3 months ago. In fact they did show a lot of classical English films during a short period.

Like you I was totally unaware of what was about to hit me. Since then my life has changed quite radically and I hope to meet up with another forum friend on a P&P trip this Spring!

I will write more here when I have more time - suddenly I wish I were an insomniac so I could use all the hours of night as well for this new-found obsession.
Many thanks and bless you for this site!

Thank you Sharon for creating this website with all the infos and photos, I am still very much enjoying it.
I love the 2005 movie very much and most of all I'd like to leave a message to the great actor Matthew MacFadyen ~ Dear Mr Darcy, you've bewitched me body and soul...and I love.. I love.. I love you...

Hi my name is Philippa and I come from cheltenham. I just finished reading the first novel and it was amazing. I really want to read the second volume but can't find it. Where can I buy it?

******************************

All I can say is ditto for me on what all these people are saying in the posts. I sent you an email in addition to this to thank you for writing this fabulous book! I am too captured by the P&P bug. As well as all of Jane Austens books. Have the DVD and watched 2 scenes a night every night for probably 8 mos. It helps me sleep when I go to bed at night. I am nuts I know. I am single so that explains it I guess. Hoping for that Darcy one day. But thanks again for your fabulous novel! And for making Darcy and Elizabeth pure on their wedding night...with such wonderful storytelling I am sold. I have read the 2 Linda Berdoll sequels but they pale in comparison to yours. Thanks again!!
Love ya girl! Keep up the good work!

******************************

Like you, saw the '05 movie before reading the book or the '95 TV version and share the same preferences! I like how you've developed the relationship between Lizzy and Darcy in the same style as the movie, beautiful in its subtlety and nuance. You've written Darcy's character to match perfectly Matthew Macfadyen's portrayal. It's especially gratifying to read how you've shown the couple to grow in their devotion to each other in all dimensions of their married life, after waiting and saving themselves for their wedding night. Sounds corny, but oh so beautiful, and isn't it what every woman secretly desires? The way it was meant to be: exclusive gift of one for the sake of the other. It's what I've told my college-bound daughter: settle for nothing less, and wait for your "Mr. Darcy!" Thank you for writing of the Darcy's passionate love for each other without exposing all of the intimately graphic details that would detract from the romance of their mutual discoveries. Well done!

I cannot express how wonderful your writing is, first of all, and the story in general is simply beautiful. The language used to describe the daily happenings truly paints a magnificent portrait in the reader's mind... I'm in love! I adore everything you've chosen to write about thus far, and will reread the story with the anticipation of the next update. Thank you for sharing such an absolutely frickin' awesome talent with us.

After watching the movie and the BBC series I was curious to find out more about Elizabeth & Darcy, and I was Google to find anything about P&P. So I found your "Darcy Saga". I started to read the first chapters and I couldn't stop reading.

You are an incredibly gifted writer! While reading I have had the feeling to be involved in the story. Your writing is lively and full of power and I can immerse myself in the situation. Amazing portraying! As a writer myself I know the power of words. And you've done a great job! This is the best Elizabeth & Darcy ff I've ever read! Keep up the good work! Thanks!

I saw the DVD and was so moved that I couldn't stop dreaming about the characters. I felt empty at the thought of not knowing what happened next. I searched the web to find out more about the movie and found Darcy Saga. I am overjoyed! I am loving all the chapters. On a few occasions I have not at first agreed with something Darcy would say or do . . . something one of the other characters would say or do . . . BUT THEN you would give me more insight into the character and I would see that they would indeed handle themselves that way because they had grown or changed as a result of knowing Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth as a couple

I think Jane Austen would find this amazing...that her novel...has captured the imagination of a whole new generation of authors, fans and film makers. I enjoy the continuing saga....it allows me to dream of "Mr Darcy" in a whole new light!!

******************************

This is an incredible story you have going here! I just devoted my day to reading every chapter -- I just couldn't stop, it's really that good. I can honestly say that this is the first P&P fanfic I have ever read, and I know I will be hard-pressed to find anything to even come close to this story's quality and depth. The character development, plot, imagery -- it's all spot-on. The love scenes are tastefully and realistically done. This story has made me love these characters more than I thought possible, and I simply cannot wait for the next installments!

So please, if you're ever feeling uninspired, or if you ever start to think that no one is reading, I'll be here waiting for more! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Keep up the awesome work!

WOW! I love it! I've spent the last 3 days reading, and reading, and reading...I can't get enough!!! I'm going to flunk my exam! I'm supposed to be studying!!! I've watched P&P at least 20 times and since read the book another 10 but I need more! Sharon you are amazing, I love your style and character development. PLEASE keep going!! XOXOXOXOX

******************************

I absolutely love your story. It's so refreshing to actually read the continuation of the story and you're such a good writer. I especially like how you've fleshed out Darcy's character to match Matthew MacFadyen's Darcy--he was wonderful in P&P'05. All of the characters are well thought out and realistic. Please continue to write...

Who IS Sharon L. - I'll tell you. A modern, classic, literary marvel. The book was a wonder, the film was excellence, and this sequel - pure genius! Whoever you are Sharon, you are truly gifted! You take a beautiful, wonderful, intriguing story that is almost unsurpassable, to totally new heights....words cannot describe the joy I experienced when I found that you were continuing our beloved Elizabeth & Darcy's story. I'm entranced. Jane Austen must be looking down on you and smiling at the wonderful work you are doing. This needed to be done - the story HAD to continue. Ever Grateful - Kevin

******************************

This is a wonderful book. Sharon, you write beautifully! I have read many published sequels to P& P, everything I can find, and this is just a superb version. It is so easy to relate to what Darcy and Elizabeth are feeling and how they are experiencing life together. You wove in the 2005 movie photos, descriptions and text so smoothly.
Thank you for contributing to all of us who are addicted to Pride and Prejudice!

I have read the entire story thus far and will be waiting for more. Thank you for writing this for those of us who are hopeless Darcy and Lizzy fans. I enjoy losing myself in them
December 27, 2007 | Suzi

******************************

I love this story and am eagerly awaiting its continuation. I believe you have Darcy and Elizabeth well understood and developed, as well as other new characters. I have read other sequels (some even published ones), but they never seem to get the characters right-such as the suggested that Bingley would have an affair. Ugh! This story not only has excitement and drama, but well-developed and meaningful characters.

As far as I am concerned, this is what really happened to one of literature's greatest couples!

Congrats Sharon! I have been a longtime reader of this story and must commend you on your truly wonderful talent. As an author myself, I would be happy to help send more readers your way! Your story is one of the best sequels I have ever read.

Hi!! I've already read your answer to the question I did you yesterday. Very thank you for your help! In the film I wanted to see the wedding, and when I saw this photos I thought that it was possible, but now I know it isn't =( Sadly we only have this photos to dream with that moment.
I've already known this site before you tell me about it in your email, but I was in the other site when I saw the wedding photo, and I ask you there about it for that.
Thanks for all your information!!

Wow I just came to this site to look for pictures with Darcy and Elizabeth but I never imagined it would lead me to this! The P & P movie is one of my favorites and I always thought it ended wayyy to soon and I wanted an insight into how their relationship progressed and how life had changed for them...this really sparked my interest and I really want to read your book now!

First let me say that I love the new website and, second let me say that I love the new book, and third let me say that I love you Sharon for bringing us the Darcy Saga! I cannot even remember when I found this site but I want to say it was when the chapters were in the teens or somewhere around there. Seems like ages ago....

******************************

After watching 2005 movie, I saw BBC 1980 and 1995 TV version to compare. I dare say, Keira and Matthew perform the best Lizzy and Darcy. The screen play was also done the best - brief and touching. I can't help to watch this movie again and again till I memorize their faces and conversation in mind.

Sharon, thank you for building this website, especially "behind screen" section. Please keep it as long as you can. Once I think of Lizzy and Darcy, this is the place I will go to get refresh feeling of love.
Well done

OMG. I am so glad to see you've gotten published!! I don't remember how, but I stumbled across your website about a year ago and started to read your Saga. It is so wonderful! I would also like to say thank you, for inspiring me to both read and write fan fiction. I had not even heard of the concept before I stumbled across your amazing work. 🙂

Hi Katie,
Sorry to jump in before Sharon. But the book available is only the beginning, Sharon has many many more wonderful chapters that will make up new books. So there is plenty to look forward to. I for one am really excited about the release of more magic from Sharon. I'm sure you'll be just as thrilled with the continuing "Saga". Happy reading.

A birthday Poem for you my love,
your Mr Darcy.

The words we often search for
Are like the colors we cannot paint
The beauty never captured
The words slowly falling faint

In the presence of the feelings
They struggle to convey
Left holding poems and pictures
Wondering what they say

If we follow where they lead
We my touch what brought them on
And remember the beauty
As we listen to their song

In following words like love and beauty
I am led to you
Where they are mere reflections
Of the real and the true

October 19, 2007 | Your Mr Darcy (Mr. Steve Lathan)

Hi Sharon,
A little birdie told me you have a birthday coming up this month (October 26th?). Let me be among the first to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I'm not sure how to start my own thread so I hope everyone who loves you and your work will chime in with their own best wishes.

I loved the novel snippet you added for us to read. And, our lovely Darcy - he wouldn't ever think to cheat on his beloved Lizzie....especially after their lovely romp on the beach. Heavenly.

******************************

Sharon, I have really enjoyed your website and am completely taken with your work. Starting in May of 2007, I decided to embark on a bit of a girl-author-power series, beginning with Jane Austin's Pride & Prejudice. Well, instead of sticking with Austen's work, I've explored another tangent that I hadn't anticipated. As of September 1, I have read 18 P&P continuations...an entire genre of work that I didn't even know existed until accidentally coming across the first.

Your book, which I found on and purchased from Amazon.com, is by far my favorite! I'm enamored with how you've so thoroughly developed Darcy and Elizabeth, and how you're enriching their story by evolving the characters of their family members and friends. Your story has taken on a life of its own and I sense that it's becoming a true epic about an amazing group of people with our favorites, Darcy and Elizabeth, at its center.

I eagerly await your next book, and am so excited for your success! Thank you for sharing this special talent with all of us! Kaycie

Hi Sharon!
I just finished reading the final chapters of your Darcy Saga. I have enjoyed reading all the chapters immensely. Your story was well told and full of interesting facts and events. You carried on their lives most eloquently and with the ending as we would hope.

I do hope you eventually can continue on with some of the story lines. It would be interesting to see how some of the lives turn out. I shall miss reading your words. I made time everyday to read at least one or two chapters. Now, alas, I shall have to wait to read the final printing until the book is published. Believe me, I will read the book again just to see how it turned out.

Thank you again for all the time and effort you put into this to enrich our lives.
Take care and God Bless.

Beautiful, and well done. Should I expect less from the writer, yes writer, who had me glued to my computer awaiting the next chapter? I, however, am becoming rather impatient on the publishing. I am sending a cyber-nudge to get things moving. Thank you for finding and sharing what you love with all of the hopeless romantics of the world.

Love the new website! You did a fantastic job. I enjoy browsing and reading all the fun stuff you posted here as well as all the other fun links. They are easier and fun to navigate. Also, it's nice to see that you posted a picture of yours. You look very pretty and I enjoyed reading your biography. Keep up the great work. Looking forward to more updates!

P.S. I already finished reading "Two Shall Become One" and I loved and enjoyed reading it. Can't wait for the next volume and for the rest of the sage to continue to be published and released soon!

Hi little sis,
Great site! Lot's of cool stuff. I'm so proud of you and still stunned at how it's all going. Love the picture, you look great. Course, I might point out that her slightly older sister passed on some of her great looks, I guess you could say I paved the way! LOL. Yes, we Hudson/Underwood clan have always been great beauties (said with heavy sarcasm). We have pretty much all been able to write a bit, but Sharon has far exceeded all our expectations. I am mostly thrilled that she was finally noticed by a publisher because I was getting ready to go kick some butt if these people kept upsetting my little sis! Having read all her stuff I knew she was a wonderful writer and it was just so annoying that someone else wasn't getting it also! But now they are and I'm so happy for you sis. Love you, Jani
