Product Description

Product Description

When Fitzwilliam Darcy returned from Hertfordshire, he did so with every intention of leaving the memory of the lovely and beguiling Miss Elizabeth Bennet behind. Yet, he was unable to do so, even though, as one of London's most eligible bachelors, the ladies of his circle were certainly willing to help him recover: Miss Bingley, sister of his best friend, Mr. Charles Bingley; the beautiful, popular, and charming Miss Chesterton; and the singular and enormously wealthy Miss Hartsbury, are all willing to claim his heart for their own. But until Darcy encounters Miss Bennet by chance in Kent, his heart still remains his own.

This lovingly crafted companion to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice will give her fans a feeling of homecoming, and a chance to see this beloved story from a new perspective, all the while immersed in the endearing world of Regency England Austen so masterfully created. Darcy's Tale was written first for the readers who were enchanted by the original and wanted the chance to return, to learn more about one of the most popular characters in English literature. But it is also for those new to the Pride & Prejudice saga: Darcy was a wealthy, well-intentioned, intelligent, and educated man; how on Earth did he become so thoroughly tangled by his acquaintance with Miss Elizabeth Bennet? She, too, is among that rarefied firmament of favourite English characters: her pert manners, quick wit, and quiet beauty made her a strong, independent figure of a woman who was over a hundred years ahead of her time. The clash of their personalities and the nearly constant misunderstanding between them, founded on an unfortunate first impression, has delighted readers for two hundred years.

This, then, is a new view of their first year as seen through Darcy's eyes, and written by a man who insisted both that Darcy should be true to Austen's vision of him, and that he should be a man throughout: wrong, perhaps at times, but always prepared to stand up and do what he saw as necessary and right, especially when he found himself to be in the wrong.

Darcy's Tale is written in the richly textured style of Regency English, and even the most demanding Austen fan will find little here to cavil with--but they will certainly find many new thoughts, perceptions, and interpretations to revel in.

Volume 1 takes Darcy to Hertfordshire and the beginnings of his relationship with Elizabeth. In Volume 2: Into Kent, the two meet again at Rosings, the estate of Darcy's Aunt Catherine. In Volume 3: The Way Home, Darcy's many trials and labours are concluded, and he finds his true place in life, at last.

More About the Author

Stan Hurd is a Ph.D. neurochemist who currently occupies himself writing, teaching fencing and Karate, and polishing samurai sword blades. He was introduced to Jane Austen's works late in life, but became immediately captivated by the unlaboured beauty of her prose. Having read one of the many adaptations written to extend the story of "Pride and Prejudice", while he was delighted to be back in that world, he found the exclusively female perspective of the author was at times intrusive; since he could not let himself complain if he did not attempt it himself, he set out to write "Darcy's Tale".

Many of his friends are amazed that he should be writing a Regency romance; he takes a particular delight in that fact.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't disappoint 5 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Since I found volume one I have been waiting for this and I really enjoyed it. Well thought out and written as is the first. The subtly and nuance was there allowing the emotion and personality of Darcy to shine through. Summer seems a long way off to wait for volume three.

3.0 out of 5 stars Starts well.... 10 Feb 2014

This must be read after Volume I, I do not think it would 'stand alone'. I feel the author gets rather carried away at mid-point in this book and the 'intrigue' becomes rather entangled and a bit pointless.... Chrissie

4.0 out of 5 stars Always the uncomfortable part of the story... 10 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been eagerly waiting for this book after devouring the first. I wasn't as keen on the Darcy in this book as in the first but this is always the most uncomfortable part of the story of Elizabeth and Darcy where they make the woest of their mistakes, find out the darkest elements of their own characters and learn their biggest lessons. I can hardly wait for the summer so I get to read part 3. If it lives up to the rest we'll get all of Mr Darcy's inner thoughts and feelings for Elizabeth and Georgiana, we'll have him crossing swords with Caroline Bingley (yay!) and also the big show down with Wickham.

Not a badly written account of darcy's thoughts am unsure though that georgiana would be that bold in the telling as she was more reticent in p&p

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughts on Darcy's thoughts 6 April 2014
By Van fan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have disliked most continuations of Pride and Prejudice but feel this is true to the style of the original as well as retaining some authenticity of personalities of the characters. 4 stars because Elizabeth not as clearly as opposed to Darcy in all conversations. I did not realise that there was a volume 3 to follow and screamed inwardly that I have to wait till August for publication. A very easy read. Still picture Mr. Darcy as Colin... (Not Collins!).
