It’s finally here and available! And you are cordially invited to spend the holidays with the Darcy family of Pemberley in Derbyshire –
A FITZWILLIAM LEGACY – a novel in two volumes
Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy have news for their family!
The road to love and marriage for Lizzy Bennet and Mr Darcy was not a straight one, but despite their inauspicious start, by the end of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, one of literature’s favourite couples was well on its way to a happy union.
In this sequel, Lizzy and Darcy are indeed married, just on a year – and set to host their first large house party at Pemberley. Will all go smoothly to observe the Christmas season without mishap? Will they share their joyous news with beloved family and friends in a quiet gathering they envisioned?
For Lizzy and Darcy, it seems the difference between peaceful Christmastide celebration and most unharmonious discord is all…
This is the first volume of a two-volume novel, which concludes with…
Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy are finding their first Christmastide at Pemberley to be something of a trial.
Lady Catherine deBourgh and her daughter Anne arrived quite unexpectedly; another guest has suffered accident and been consigned to her rooms to recuperate; Jane and Bingley are house hunting; at least six of their family and friends are in various stages of love, with all its attendant miseries. And just when they think there can be no further intrigues, one of the party ends up on the drawing room carpet in a dead faint.
Given all that to contend with, what is a couple to do? Why… host a ball, of course!
This conclusion to A Fitzwilliam Legacy (Vol. I): Seasonal Disorder, resolves its unfinished business even as the Darcy family moves into the New Year… 1799 — while introducing yet a few more surprises right through a Twelfth Night celebration to the end.
