In this imaginative retelling of Pride and Prejudice, Amanda Grange now tells the classic story through the eyes of its compelling romantic hero, Fitzwilliam Darcy - in a series of revealing letters that casts a sparkling new reflection on the manners and morals of the landed gentry in 19th-century England . . . Lady Adelaide Fitzwilliam, I have been thinking of matrimony, I must admit. I never intended to marry until I was thirty, but now that I am the last of my line, I think I owe it to Pemberley not to wait so long, for I find myself worrying about what will happen if I were to die without a child. Perhaps you can introduce me to some young ladies in Cumbria . . . Your affectionate nephew, Fitzwilliam Here, for the first time, are the letters written by the exceedingly proud and stubborn Mr. Darcy, covering the life changing events that defined him - from the death of his father, to his control of his Derbyshire estate of Pemberley to his conflicted courtship with the lively, intelligent, and delightfully willful Elizabeth Bennet. Try as he may, he can not deny his attraction to this woman with fine eyes, a playful spirit, a mind of her own . . . and an embarrassing family that is frankly, and utterly, beneath him. But it is Elizabeth who controls both their destinies, and whose surprises will change Darcy's life yet again. Praise for the novels of Amanda Grange 'Absolutely fascinating. Amanda Grange seems to have really got under Darcy's skin and retells the story . . . with great feeling and sensitivity.' Historical Novel Society 'A gift to a new generation of Darcy fans and a treat for existing fans as well.' AustenBlog
