NEW RELEASES

Summary

The novel, though, has a much more complex storyline than simply continuing the family bloodline. There’s a terrible pandemic, death, and a family secret that may be buried forever. On the flip side, there is love, laughter, and true friendship. It’s a multi-dimensional story that is well-written. The author successfully tapped into the mystique of Pride & Prejudice...reimagined, of course.

4 STAR REVIEW: SONS OF PEMBERLEY by Elizabeth Adams

Sons of Pemberley Banner

The Description

What if Lady Anne Darcy was alive to meet Elizabeth Bennet?

A sweeping tale of tragedy, devotion, and betrayal—spanning over 25 years and two generations—this family saga explores the life Fitzwilliam Darcy would have had if his mother had not died young.

An up-close view of the Darcys’ marriage and Fitzwilliam’s childhood … a retelling of the circumstances that shaped the man we have come to love … a reimagining of the friendships and relationships that formed each iconic character … a tale of love, loss, heartbreak, and triumph—that is Sons of Pemberley.

The Review

SonsofPemberley-REVIEW-FBTake a trip with me, if you will, back to the late 18th century. The English countryside bustles with activity around the enormous Pemberley mansion. There’s a clear distinction that comes with a person’s family name. Yet the friendship between George Darcy of Pemberley and Samuel Wickham creates a bond akin to a brotherhood of equals.

Author Elizabeth Adams meticulously weaves a tale filled with the pomp and circumstance of the time in Sons of Pemberley. Readers must pay close attention as the time shifts forward and then backward to fill in the back story. I found myself having to double-check the dates because I had been closely following a storyline only to have the chapter shift. What stands out, though, is the close attention to detail. The language, particularly the dialog, is perfectly on point for the time period. I could easily picture some of the scenes in my head.

I found myself rooting for young Fitzwilliam as he tried to find his place in the world. The dinner parties, complete with the formality associated with the time period, helped to set the stage as Lady Anne vetted potential suitors for her son. With phrases such as, “I think her figure light and pleasing,” the author clearly set the tone.

The novel, though, has a much more complex storyline than simply continuing the family bloodline. There’s a terrible pandemic, death, and a family secret that may be buried forever. On the flip side, there is love, laughter, and true friendship. It’s a multi-dimensional story that is well-written. The author successfully tapped into the mystique of Pride & Prejudice…reimagined, of course.

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
