Product Description

Review

Sharon Lathan's continuation story Two Shall Become One is based off of the 2005 movie 'Pride and Prejudice', and not from the classic Austen book. Readers must be aware that the events transcribing are those that were portrayed through the film. She in no way tries to imitate Austen's style of writing, but creates a style that is new and fresh and above all things romantic. Lathan creates the perfect balance of subtle romantic gestures that leave just enough to allow your mind to take over, and yet she also at times describes events with just enough detail that it takes your breath away! It is as if the author knows exactly when the reader wants to use their imagination or when they would prefer to just be told! Two Shall Become One is a story of two people who have done just that, they have become one. The book shows the day by day account of two people whose love overcomes the strict social structures of the day. Her story brings added light and magic to the original Austen classic and is the perfect continuation of the 2005 movie. This book is perfect for those who loved the 2005 movie as well as the classic Austen books. Austen would be proud! -- Annie, a reader in Baltimore, USA

This is a lovely and romantic sequel and I love Ms. Lathan's writing style. The love story of Lizzie and Darcy is an all time classic and I was thrilled to be able to carry on from the ending of Jane Austen's story with such perfect characterizations. Ms. Lathan has added some wonderful new characters as well as enriching some of the originals. It's obvious that Ms. Lathan has done an incredible amount of research and really brings to life the interesting times that Lizzie and Darcy lived through. The bonding of these two lovers is what every woman dreams of, literally. Sassy Lizzie matures and becomes a remarkable woman with Darcy's adoration, patience and love, and watching Darcy come alive and learn to embrace life through his love of Lizzie is a joy. I certainly hope Ms. Lathan continues her passion and supplies us with more of her work. I intend to do some research and find out what she is doing next! -- Loridae in New Mexico, USA

Who IS Sharon L. - I'll tell you. A modern, classic, literary marvel. The book was a wonder, the film was excellence, and this sequel - pure genius! Whoever you are Sharon, you are truly gifted! You take a beautiful, wonderful, intriguing story that is almost unsurpassable, to totally new heights....words cannot describe the joy I experienced when I found that you were continuing our beloved Elizabeth & Darcy's story. Jane Austen must be looking down on you and smiling at the wonderful work you are doing. This needed to be done - the story HAD to continue. Ever Grateful. -- Kevin in Birmingham, UK

From the Publisher

From the Sourcebooks Publishing House page: "A portrait of a passionate, deeply committed love as it would realistically unfold during the Regency era of English history. Darcy and Lizzy are on a quest of colossal magnitude: life and marriage. "Two Shall Become One ~ Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy" is a novel, a romance, a Regency historical, a family saga, a literary journey filled with humor, joy, and exquisite but tempered sensuality, focusing on the obstacles inherent in all.

The novel begins on their wedding day and flows seamlessly through the first days into weeks as they bond through the intimacy of consummation and co-manage the ordinary and extraordinary events that transpire. Experience their honeymoon, Lizzy's nervousness as she assumes the role of Mistress of Pemberley, memories of how their relationship blossomed during the engagement, Christmas with numerous guests, a Twelfth Night Masque, day to day life in a 19th century estate, and their first trauma. Interwoven amongst all these events is passion of incredible proportions and a consuming love."

Format: Paperback
As other reviewers have mentioned this story covers the immediate period following the marraige of Lizzy & Darcy (as well as some flashbacks to their engagement). I liked the fact that the author captured the passion of their marraige, however the "lovey-dovey ness" was overkill. I found myself desperately hoping they would have a major row or even a disagreement!! While secondary characters were well developed, I felt Lizzy and Darcy lost their personalities, and every time either spoke it was to utter "I love you so much" "no I love you more"

I'm a big fan of Jane Austin, and have read all her works, and also every follow up to P&P. If you like the passion of their marraige, I recommend Linda Berdoll's 2 sequels or if you prefer something closer to Austin's original, pamela aiden's trilogy is good.

I hope the author continues with the planned series, but a little realism, disagreements, arguements and differences of opinions while the Darcy's very different personalities adapt to life together would perhaps balance the OTT "lovey-doveyness", and create a touching "love conquors all" story

I am a fan of Austen fan fiction, esp Abigail Reynolds, who writes beautifully, but this is fanfiction at its worst. Elizabeth's quick wit, has been replaced by a limited of "I love you more, I need you etc etc," and though I have little problem with imaganing Macfadyen or Firth semi naked in their breeches, not even I could use that imagery to help me along here....
thesaurus sex at its worst. I didn't finish, which is MOST unusual for me.

I've watch the BBC version and 2005 version and both are very different. Sharon Lathan brings this story to life you are there with the characters. I have been following this story for a long time on her internet site. Sharon Lathan is the best story teller ever. I order my copy and now I got it and read it again, it is still the best story around and its well worth the read. So its Well done Sharon. Buy the book and you will be blown away.

Sorry to say, but I've abandonned the story 1/3 into it. How much can you go on with Darcy and Elizabeth making love as the only plot in a story?

I have been following Ms Lathan's continuing saga, of Lizzy and Darcy's story following their marriage, online for over a year and I am delighted

to now be the proud possessor of a copy of the first volume of Two Shall Become One in print.

This P&P sequel is based on the 2005 Pride and Prejudice film starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen and tells the tale of Lizzy & Darcy's first months of marriage.

It is a wonderfully romantic tale and a must for all afficionados of the 05 version who were left at the end of the film wanting more!

Highly recommended! Well done Ms Lathan! I look forward to the next volume with eager anticipation!
