Almost AustenA big thank you to Jane Austen's House volunteer, Janie Larus-McShane, who has written a short review of Pamela Aidan's trilogy of books: An Assembly Such as This, Duty and Desire and These Three Remain:
Pamela Aidan’s trilogy is a refreshing and rewarding re-visit to our beloved Pride and Prejudice, through the eyes of Fitzwilliam Darcy. Author Pamela Aidan judiciously peppers the story with characters and well-crafted story line sidebars, which enrich our understanding of the man, Fitzwiliam Darcy; at the same time, her creative stories honour the original treasure of a story in both style and language.
These story lines make us love the novel, the author, and the man even more. These are the best of all the countless ’follow-on’ Austen books I have ever read. Enjoy!
