Marsha Altman has been my latest guest in the "Talking Jane Austen with ... " series of interviews (you can read our chat HERE) and The Ballad of Gregoire Darcy is her just published fourth book in a successful series of sequels to Pride and Prejudice. One of last week's guestpost featuring Marsha Altman is going to win a signed copy. Just have a look at the end of this short post!
WHIRLWIND OF PEMBERLEY
The comings and goings on their grand estate present endless challenges for Elizabeth and Darcy. Can they avoid scandal given the recent arrival of Mr. Darcy’s illegitimate brother Grégoire, Mr. Bennet’s advancing years, the younger George Wickham’s coming of age, and Dr. Maddox’s departure from his position with the Prince Regent even as his many secrets threaten to be discovered?
COURTSHIP OF MARY BENNET
After her disastrous trip to the continent resulted in a passionate romance and an unintended child, Mary Bennet finds herself back in England, living with the shameful title of unwed mother. Having given up on ever finding love, Mary is shocked to find herself pursued by a proper gentleman. But are his intentions true, or is Mary being led astray by her heart once again?
TORMENT OF GRÉGOIRE DARCY
Leaving his sheltered, peaceful life at a Benedictine cloister, Grégoire enters a world he never imagined. Thrust into Regency England’s secular society, Grégoire is overwhelmed. How can an inexperienced, single man stay true to himself while finding his place in a culture obsessed with matrimony?
Congratulations to Debbie Brown who will get an autographed copy of this great Austenesque read. And many thanks to Marsha Altman for being my guest on My Jane Austen Book Club.
