In the fifth in Sharon Lathan's bestselling series, George Wickham returns to Hertfordshire bent on creating trouble, and Elizabeth and her newborn son are thrown into danger. Knowing that Wickham has nothing left to lose, Darcy and Fitzwilliam rush to the rescue in a race against time.
This lushly romantic story takes a turn for the swashbuckling when Mr. Darcy has to confront the villainous Wickham and his own demons at the same time... devoted as he is, what battles within will Mr. Darcy have to face?Review:
Where do I begin? There was so much taking place in the fifth instalment of the Darcy Saga that I haven’t got a clue!
Firstly, I love the prologue! It sets the scene beautifully but gives no indication of what is to come or what has already occurred- nicely done if I do say so myself.
This book has some wonderfully written dialogue, and not just between Lizzy and Darcy. I really love the dialogue that occurs between Alexander and his parents throughout the book as the young Master Alex matures and begins to learn more about the world he lives in. I especially love the dialogue between Darcy and his heir – it’s so sweet.
I also really like that Sharon Lathan has made a family for some of the lesser characters in Pride and Prejudice. To be honest, I’m desperate to know if she will one day write the story of Colonel Fitzwilliam and his wife Lady Simone, as I love their story. I also like that Caroline Bingley is now a wife and mother, even if I’m still not in her fan club.
Overall, Sharon Lathan has once again done a marvellous job on her latest novel. And once again, I find myself thanking her and her imagination.
