Publisher Comments:

Seventh in the bestselling Jane Austen sequel series from Australia

Young Darcy Gardiner has fallen for Kate O'Hare, a newcomer to Pemberley whose beauty and intellect fascinate him.

Kate is more interested in discussing the merits of Darwin's The Origin of Species than the latest fashion in gowns. Her unladylike involvement in the scientific controversies of the day invite malignant forces from her past that pose grave risks for her friends. But in her very difference lies her charm, especially for young Darcy Gardiner.

The original Jane Austen charactersDarcy, Elizabeth, Bingley, and Janeprovide the framework for new characters and unfolding events set against a backdrop of the social issues of the time. This next generation proves as lively and complex as Darcy and Elizabeth's own.

Review:

"In book seven of a well-researched ten-book sequel series to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Australian writer Collins examines two couples' long march to the altar. Although the book lacks the sprightly wit of the incomparable Austen, Collins does successfully capture U.K. courtship rituals of the 1860s. The first match runs rather smoothly: Jessica Courtney, Reverend James Courtney's daughter and manager of the Pemberley Parish School, falls in love with widower Julian Darcy, whose unfaithful wife, Josie, died after a scandalous affair. Julian, a scientist headed for Africa on a research trip, courts her with frequent letters. The second couple is more problematic: wealthy Darcy Gardiner, Julian's 26-year-old nephew, is a sought-after bachelor besotted by school teacher/governess Kathryn 'Kate' O'Hare. Not only is Kate from a lower class, but she has a secret connection to Gordon Hartley-Brown, the cousin of her former employer Lady Denny, that could threaten her future with Darcy. Collins painstakingly recreates pitch-perfect Austen period notes which her fans will relish, though her story can drag." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
