Read full description of the books Los Darcy de Derbyshire:Love blooms in the Black Rocks of Derbyshire, in three parts.
What a refreshing novella and so delightful. It was a quick read and presented something completely different. I loved this novella as it was featured in three parts.
Part one has us with Elizabeth traveling Derbyshire with her Aunt and Uncle Gardiner. They are in the Black Rocks area and in the '95 movie version we saw Elizabeth climbing those rocks and looking out over the valley. In this version, the Gardiners don’t let Elizabeth climb by herself. So she was stuck at the bottom.
During their picnic she longingly looked up and saw a well-dressed man extending his hand as though he was throwing something off the top of the rocks [it is so moving when you learn what it was]. When he descended the trail, she was stunned and surprised to see that it was Mr. Darcy. He in turn was stunned and surprised to see Miss Elizabeth Bennet in Derbyshire. This mirrored their meeting at Pemberley and introductions were made and Mr. Darcy was impressed with the Gardiners. Elizabeth was just glad she had relations that did not embarrass her. Mr. Darcy offered the fishing excursion to Mr. Gardiner. Convinced that Elizabeth wanted to see the view from the top, Mr. Darcy offered to escort her. As they journeyed to the top, he told her of it being his mothers’ favorite place. When he reached the top he told her their love story.
Part two is most excellent as Darcy tells Elizabeth the lovely story of how his parents met, fell in love and how the senior Mr. Darcy attempted to court Darcy’s mother. We learn of the financial burdens of the Fitzwilliam family, the need of a bail out by the banker Mr. Berg [not a typo…it will be explained] and Catherine’s place in the story. OMG!!! How creative and different this variation was for us to enjoy. I’d never seen this take on our story. I loved it. My poor little romantic heart was so touched by the history of the outstanding couple that we have loved throughout hundreds of P&P variations. There are a few stories that paint a bad senior Darcy, but not many.
Part three brings us back to Elizabeth and Darcy still at the top of the hill. Both have been touched and moved by Darcy’s rendition of his parents’ love story. I can’t reveal any further so I won’t spoil anything. It was a delight. It can be read in a couple of hours and it was simply a feel good novella. Reynolds did an outstanding job.
Read information about the authorAbigail Reynolds has spent the last fifty years asking herself what she wants to be when she grows up. This month she is a writer, a mother and a physician in a part-time private practice. Next month is anybody’s guess. Originally from upstate New York, she indecisively studied Russian, theater, and marine biology before deciding to attend medical school, a choice which allowed her to avoid any decisions at all for four years.
She began writing Pride & Prejudice variations in 2001 to spend more time with her very favorite characters. Encouragement from fellow Austen fans convinced her to continue asking ‘What if…?’, which led to seven other Pemberley Variations and two modern novels set on Cape Cod. Her most recent releases are WHAT WOULD MR. DARCY DO?, A PEMBERLEY MEDLEY, and MORNING LIGHT. She is currently at work on some book or other, and will let the world know if she ever figures out what it is. A lifetime member of JASNA, she lives in Wisconsin with her husband, two teenaged children, and a menagerie of pets.
