Book Blurb: What was Mr. Darcy’s life like before he met Elizabeth Bennet? – before he stepped onto the Pride and Prejudice stage at the Meryton assembly? More importantly, where is he and what is he doing all the time he’s absent from the page thereafter? And what is his relationship to a woman named Amelia?

With "Fitzwilliam Darcy, in His Own Words," the iconic literary hero finally tells his own story, from the traumas of his early life to the consummation of his love for Elizabeth and everything in between.

This is not a variation but a supplement to the original story chronicled in Darcy’s point of view – a behind-the-scenes look at the things Jane Austen didn’t tell us. As it happens, Darcy’s journey was more torturous than she let on, his happy ending with Elizabeth in jeopardy at every turn in his struggle between duty and his heart’s desire, between the suitable lady he has promised to marry and the woman he can't stop thinking about.

My Review: I was really happy to see this book get published because while we have some we almost never get to read Pride and Prejudice from Darcy's point of view. We get some backstory with Mr. Darcy's father on how to choose a wife and damn that was some advice. This ultimately gets Darcy to think about offering for a Miss Amelia Albright and then he actually does it but she doesn't immediately accept him. It was great to see him agonize over Elizabeth and Amelia (though let's face it Amelia never stood a chance). 

This book was great and I can't wait to read any other Pride and Prejudice books that Shannon Winslow puts out in the future.
