Jane Austen Over and Over and Over
Taking the reader into the world of one of Jane Austen's most famous characters, Fitzwilliam D'arcy, Pamela Aidan begins her tale by introducing her readers to Darcy during his first visit to Herfordshire.

Renee Zellweger shines in the 2001 film adaptation, also starring Colin Firth and Hugh Grant.
Set in the years 1805-1815, Desire and Duty tells the romantic adventures of Mr Darcy's beautiful, shy, devout younger sister, Georgiana.
What follows in Austen's classic distresses and vexes Emma very much indeed--and in such a funny way--making her one of the author's most memorable and beloved characters.
Elizabeth Bennet, now Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy and mistress of Pemberley, finds herself in a very different league of wealth and privilege.
Told in the language of the era and bringing Regency society vividly to life, "Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride" recalls Austen's theme of the necessity of individual growth in the maintainance of lasting bonds.
"This sexy, epic, hilarious, poignant and romantic sequel to Pride and Prejudice goes far beyond being a Jane Austen sequel. Every woman wants to be Elizabeth Bennet Darcy-beautiful, gracious, universally admired, strong, daring and outspoken-a thoroughly modern woman in crinolines. And every woman will fall madly in love with Mr. Darcy-tall, dark and handsome, a nobleman and a heart-throb whose virility is matched only by his utter devotion to his wife. Their passion is consuming and idyllic through a sweeping tale of adventure and misadventure, human folly and numerous mysteries of parentage."
Cassandra Gardiner, daughter of Pride & Prejudice's Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, struggles to balance the competing demands of duty and family during the political and social changes sweeping through England in the Victorian era.
A delightfully thrilling, paranormal Pride and Prejudice sequel, full of danger, darkness and deep romantic love.
"In the novel, Anne Elliot, the heroine Austen called 'almost too good for me,' has let herself be persuaded not to marry Frederick Wentworth, a fine and attractive man without means. Eight years later, Captain Wentworth returns from the Napoleonic Wars with a triumphant naval career behind him, a substantial fortune to his name, and an eagerness to wed. Austen explores the complexities of human relationships as they change over time."
In early nineteenth-century England, a spirited young woman copes with the suit of a snobbish gentleman as well as the romantic entanglements of her four sisters.
The 1995 BBC/A&E production of Pride and Prejudice, starring Colin Firth, is a must see for Austen fans and hopeless romantics. This adaptation is five hours long, but every minute is great. (Also available on VHS.) For black & white film buffs, check out the 1940 film version with Laurence Olivier and Maureen O'Sullivan. The screenplay for this film was written by Brave New World author Aldous Huxley. Finally, Bridget Jones's Diary puts a modern spin on Austen's classic.
At Pemberley, Elizabeth is somewhat oppressed by the weight of centuries of tradition. Furthermore, she is scrutinised by formidable senior members of Darcy's family.

A shadow from Darcy's past looks to darken the future.
