After reading the first 3 books in this fan fiction series I was well and truly hooked on how the author has developed the original characters and introduced some new ones! I was not at all disappointed with this 4th book and couldn't put it down. The character list has increased greatly from Jane Austen's original book but if you can keep up with all the kids names I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did. Bit far fetched in places but captivating!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ballad of Gregoire Darcy: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice Continues 18 Jan. 2015
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Interesting story about the younger Darcy half-brother, Gregoire. This story continues after Darcy and Dr. Maddox are rescued from Transylvania. The March of Napoleon's army on Russia has wreaked havoc in Europe. Monasteries have disbanded and Gregoire relocates himself to Spain. Between the local community and the Church community, the Archbishop declares him a living saint. At the same time he finds that Gregoire has a lot of money being held by Darcy for Gregoire's use. After requesting £5000 to be used for repairs on the homes of the local people, discovering the money didn't arrive, and not hearing from Gregoire for quite awhile, Brian and Nadi set out to find why. What they find proves to be intolerable and great speed he's removed from Spain to return to London. Arrives at Pemberley eventually with his brother and fully recuperate from the horrible affair. Decides to make a pilgrimage to Ireland where his life changes forever needing his brother's help one more time. Gregoire finally finds true happiness.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Ballad of Gregoire Darcy 25 Oct. 2013
By maryann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I choose to give this five stars because of the great writing and the story itself with history of which I am greatly interested. This novel also includes other members of the family and their trials and tribulations. The torment that Gregoire goes through from being a Benedictine monk to that of returning to a gentleman of culture in England. As all of us know in our daily lives, nothing is simple and easy. The same goes for characters in a novel. Things are not always peaches and cream. I would rather read a novel with twists and turns that do happen in real life as to those that are not normal. I would not go into the story and become a spoiler as I think Ms. Altman does a wonderful job of keeping her novels exciting and interesting that you don't want to put the book down. Make sure you read the books in order as it could get confusing as Gregoire is Darcy's half brother and you would find out how Darcy gets the knowledge of this information. I leave you at this comment: She is one of my favorite authors and have yet to find any of her novels that I dislike.
4.0 out of 5 stars Creative explanation for Darcy's "shyness"! 30 Sept. 2013
By Wendolyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read the entire series and found it to be very entertaining and well written despite the usual grammatical errors, typos and need for more aggressive editing. The most outstanding plot element for me is the explanation for Darcy's dour and taciturn behavior. Ms. Altman seems to be suggesting that Darcy is farther along on the autism continuum than most of us, maybe suffering from mild Asperger's Syndrome. The Darcy "madness" introduced with the Uncle Gregory storyline is never officially diagnosed but the symptoms are all there and I credit Ms. Altman for exploring this subject. If, in fact, autism is even what she's dancing around, that is!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Darcy seris continues 23 May 2011
By chatty1082 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the 4th in seris of Darcy & Bingley, Pride & Prejudice continues stories. I love these books because it feels like there real people. In the 1st 2 books there were family scenes that I just had to laugh out loud. I could see it happening. Each book has really continued the story to unbelievable heights. Ms Altman gives the characters that we all love real life. In this last book we learn so much about the Darcy's. I couldn't put the book down. For those of you who read book 3 and felt it was dark this book takes you into the light. It was well worth the wait. I can't wait to read the next book. Please Marsha publish it soon. Don't keep us in suspense too long!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Hit! 26 May 2011
By Cherri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love Marsha Altman's take on the Darcy clan. Not only has she successfully "what if'ed" the original characters she has added new and exciting charaters.
I loved book 4 of this series, it was well written and imaginative. If you love P&P fanfiction you will love Marsha's entire series. I dont want to give away any plot lines in my review, suffice it to say I read book 4 in 2 sit downs and am looking forward to book 5 hopefully soon.
Great job!
