Book Summary:

A sequel faithful to Jane Austen's beloved masterpiece, Pride and Prejudice. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy have been married for almost a year, and their heated arguments are a thing of the past. All that passion is now directed into more satisfying pursuits. But how long can the honeymoon last? The couple's idyllic life together at Pemberley is jeopardized by the secrets they begin keeping from each other, the troubles of their closest friends, and the threat of a villain in their midst. Layers of seemingly innocent deception are building between Darcy and Elizabeth, threatening their relationship. He is conducting some covert business dealings that he's unwilling to share with his wife, and she likewise begins keeping things from him against her own better judgment. The couple also becomes embroiled in the tribulations of Mr. Darcy's younger sister, Georgiana, and his friend and cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam. Fitzwilliam falls victim to their aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, as the object of her latest scheme to make a noble match for her daughter. The arrangement satisfies the ambitions of the couple's parents, but appears to hold little prospect of happiness for Anne and Fitzwilliam, who each harbor other romantic interests. During this same period, Georgiana runs the gamut of emotions as she comes of age. Her elation at her birthday ball soon crumbles when she learns the man she secretly admires is engaged to another. The excitement of a London season and the attention of two other eligible suitors cannot make her forget her disappointment over her lost first love. As the story progresses, the menacing shadow of Mr. Darcy's life-long nemesis looms ever-larger. By carelessness and design, Mr. Wickham and Lydia painfully intrude into the lives of the Darcys and the Bingleys, with disastrous results. The Darcys of Pemberley is the tale of two romances: the continuation of Darcy and Elizabeth's story, and the courtship of Miss Georgiana. For those of us who didn't want Pride and Prejudice to end, this charming novel gives the opportunity to learn what happens after the wedding, to revisit all our old friends and foes, and to share the next chapter of their lives. Ms. Winslow carries on the saga much as Jane Austen herself might have - true to her style, her sensibilities, and the delightful characters she created.

Book Summary:

Enjoy Jane Austen's mastery of irony, dialogue and realism in this unforgettable love story. One of the most beloved books of all time, Pride and Prejudice-Jane Austen's most popular book- has been resonating with readers since it was first published in 1813 and has been adapated many times for television, movies, and books. When headstrong and independent Elizabeth Bennet, one of five sisters, is required to find a wealthy husband, her encounter with the arrogant Mr. Darcy leads to one of the most entertaining and satisfying courtships ever imagined. Beyond the romance, Pride and Prejudice is a book full of humor and wit that is also a commentary on upper-class social manners at the turn of the nineteenth century. Even though it is concerned with love and marriage, the novel is a rejection of Romanticism, a popular way of imagining the world at that time. Austen preferred to highlight the rational abilities of her characters and not portray them as completely controlled by their emotions. However, the people in the book aren't robots, and Austen shows universal situations in a perfectly clear light--embarrassment when someone is foolish, the nervous feeling of falling in love, and the chagrin caused by making a big mistake. Austen's mastery of irony, dialogue, and realism support character development and make Pride and Prejudice a pure pleasure to read. Complete and unabridged, this elegantly designed, clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction by Deborah Lutz.

Book Summary:

This edition contains the original and unabridged text of this Jane Austen classic. Ideal for students, Janeites and new readers alike. Pride and Prejudice follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th-century England. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman living near the fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, near London. Though the story is set at the turn of the 19th century, it retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of “most loved books”. It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature and receives considerable attention from literary scholars. As Anna Quindlen wrote, “Pride and Prejudice is also about that thing that all great novels consider, the search for self. And it is the first great novel to teach us that that search is as surely undertaken in the drawing room making small talk as in the pursuit of a great white whale or the public punishment of adultery.”

Book Summary:

Pride and Prejudice is the most popular book ever written, even though it is exactly two hundred years old, having been published in 1817 !!! It is currently being downloaded more times than any other book. It has been made into two major motion pictures, plus a Bollywood production and innumerable television shows including a PBS production. It has been reprinted innumerable times. More than twenty editions are available. This book is in Large Print Edition. The Fonts are 16-point type, nearly double the size of typical book printing. This is to make the book more comfortable and easier to read. It also makes the book appear to be longer. We hope the reading public appreciates our efforts to make the great classics more readable. The enduring popularity of this book is attributable to marriage which is still practiced in some circles. The word "love" occurs 122 times in this book. The words virgin or virginity never appear. Yet the five girls are all presumed virgins at the beginning of this book, as they are holding out to give their virginity to a man of means. That forms the plot to this book. Mr. and Mrs. Bennet have five daughters but no sons. Although the Bennets are moderately wealthy, owning land, they cannot leave any of their wealth to their daughters, as only males can inherit it. Since the Bennets have no sons, upon the death of Mr. Bennet, his property will be inherited by a cousin, Mr. William Collins. Mrs. Bennet, who owns no property, will be left with nothing. Thus, Mrs. Bennet must find wealthy men to marry her daughters or else she and her daughters will be left destitute when their father dies. The daughters are constantly warned to avoid entanglements except with men of means. The daughters however wish a love marriage, not a marriage based on wealth or position in society. It is the arrival of a new man in town, a Mr. Darcy, who has guaranteed income for life, which starts the process of trying to inveigle him into marrying one of the daughters. We are told Mr. Darcy derives his wealth from large property he owns in Derbyshire. He is from the landed gentry. At that time, a few rich people in England owned all the land. The peasants of the lower class worked the land and gave the products of their labors to the idle rich. The daughters and their parents know that to approach Darcy too aggressively about marriage would put him off, but to be too remote would cause him to lose interest. So, they have to strike a happy medium. They plan to make Darcy wild with desire so as to trick him into loving one of the daughters. Jane Austen makes a point to explain that the Bingleys acquired their wealth by trade rather than through the gentry's and aristocracy's methods of inheriting estates and making money off their tenants as landlords. The author explores the differences between "Old Money" and "New Money." "Old Money" is considered good. New money is considered bad. In our modern era, we have the opposite view. We think as good the people who made their money "The old fashioned" way by working for it, whereas the idle rich who just collect rents from tenants who live on land they inherited are not good. In Pride and Prejudice, Darcy and the Bennets are all Old money people.
