Darcy's Story - Janet Aylmer

For something completely different, I turned to a Jane Austen interpretation. This one was meant to fill in the missing pieces of Darcy’s story – so we could see the thought process behind why he would decide to try and win Elizabeth Bennett after she rejected his first proposal.

It’s not a bad book.    It begins with the whole Wickham/Georgiana Darcy affair – which is definitely a good frame for Darcy’s side of the story.    In fact, it’s his relationship with Georgiana that makes this book – that’s really what you need to see to show you that he is in fact a good man, and with a little help to see some of his glaring faults, is capable to winning Lizzie.
