The true Darcy spirit
Aston, Elizabeth.
Adult Fiction ASTON

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews

From Library Journal:

In Mr. Darcy's Daughters, Aston created five young women as the offspring of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy. Two of them, Camilla and Belle, play significant roles in this third novel based on Jane Austen's characters, though the main characters are distant cousins of the girls. Cassandra Darcy refuses to marry the man with whom she had run away to London when she realizes that his affection was motivated by her potential fortune as much as her other attributes. Disowned by her family, she decides to earn a living by painting. Horatio Darcy, Fitzwilliam Darcy's handsome and proud cousin and the lawyer employed by Cassandra's stepfather, deplores her decision but grudgingly admires her independence. Meanwhile, Cassandra's na?ve trust in a high-class procuress almost leads her to an unwanted liaison with the powerful Lord Usbourne, whose wife has taken Horatio as her lover. Rescued by Camilla, Cassandra slowly finds acceptance in London's bohemian community, which includes other women in the arts. Observant readers will deduce that the numerous plot twists will ultimately lead to the marriage of Camilla and Horatio. By the novel's end, even flirtatious Belle finds true love, which will make readers wonder how long Aston will continue the Austen connection. This novel will please public library fans of historical romance on its own terms. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
