Mr. Darcy Lives On

I am a huge fan of BBC's Pride and Prejudice. Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy is the stuff of which dreams are made.

I recently discovered that for some, the wedding scene was not nearly enough. Two authors have continued the story of Mr. Darcy and his outspoken wife.

Linda Berdoll penned Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife: Pride and Prejudice Continues, as well as Darcy & Elizabeth: Nights and Days at Pemberley.

On the other hand, Pamela Aidan has a different view of the "happily ever after". Four of her novels are inspired by the Darcys.

1. An Assembly Such As This: A Novel of Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman
2. Duty and Desire...
3. Mr. Darcy's Daughters...
4. These Three Remain...

I haven't read any of these. Yet. I certainly plan on it. All in good time.

Have any of you read these? I invite you reviews!

I haven't read the continuing sagas but I do agree - BBC's Pride & Prejudice is wonderful and one of of my favourite films.
