Publisher's Comments

How does "happily ever after" really work? As marriage brings an end to a romantic tale, it begins a new story: how does "happily ever after" really work? While Jane Bennet and Charles Bingley might be expected to get on famously, Mr. and Mrs. Darcy will surely need to work on their communication skills. What forces in Darcy's past would give such a good man so difficult a public demeanor? The author posits an imaginative family background for Darcy from which he would have inherited his sense of social superiority and duty to the family name. When Darcy reverts to type, will Elizabeth's stubborn optimism win the day after the honeymoon is over? While they say that opposites attract, how long can Lizzy and Darcy's fundamentally different personalities get along without friction? Can they learn to understand each other? Can their love prevail over the inevitable clashes? PRAISE FOR PEMBERLEY MANOR: "A talented writer with a wonderful feel for Regency." Mary Bracho, Loft Literary Center "An absorbing read from the very first page." Alison Aldridge, BBC Worldwide "One to treasure. What a sumptuous book!" Jane Odiwe, author of Lydia Bennet's Story
