Publisher's Summary

Pemberley’s ancient halls harbour many secrets. Which one will affect Fitzwilliam Darcy and the love of his life? How is Mr. Bennet to enjoy the comforts of a well-stocked library, when his wife’s premature demise had left him with the task of finding suitable matches for their daughters? And what of a misleading encounter on a muddy lane in Hertfordshire, that renders a country-town assembly rather more tolerable than some might have thought?  

Shades of mystery, meddlesome relations - not least a drenched Adonis - raillery, old errors and a very recent union make for a challenging courtship when Fitzwilliam Darcy is not on his own ground. Yet when love is the reward, challenges make it more worth the earning.  

“A fraught courtship? So, let it be fraught,” Colonel Fitzwilliam said with a nonchalant flourish of his hand. “A good challenge never hurt anyone.”

Another winner from Joana.

I love this authors works, and I love anything that Stevie Zimmerman narrates. I must admit to a little hesitation when I started to read this story; not like anything Joana has written before.

The writing, the characters and the plot all combine to make this work a joyful experience. I cannot say more without leaving massive spoilers but I am sure if you love Pride and Prejudice and the characters within that story, then you will love the Darcy Legacy.

Highly recommend.

An Entertaining listen.

Not quite what I expected starting off but it was entertaining j feel like Ms Starnes kept the basic personalities of the characters. She brought them out well. Really enjoyed Mr Bennet, he gave me some good chuckles. I haven’t read many variations but it was enjoyable.
Stevie Zimmerman is always an excellent narrator.

JOYFUL Reading

loved this variation. I laughed a lot, didn't want it to end. Good enough to listen twice.

Joana Starnes' best book yet

I know I sound like I repeat myself, but it really was sublime. To date it was my favourite book. I simply can not get enough of Eliza and Fitzwilliam <3
What sweet twist to be introduced to familiar characters whom we have not actually met before, eg. FD's parents.
Loved it from start to finish.
Stevie Zimmerman with her ability to read all the different voices and accents, has outdone herself. Lady Catherine's voice is class.
Anyone deciding on this book is in for a treat.
