    Though Darcy struggles privately with his desire for Elizabeth Bennet, he must still fulfill his roles as landlord, master, brother, and friend. In Book Two, the "silent time" of Austen's novel, Fitzwilliam Darcy and his personal world emerge as he deals with his servants, including a valet with aspirations of sartorial triumph.

    connie says: "wonderful, wonderful fluff"
    "A great counterpoint to Pride and Prejudice"
    Overall

    The author does a good job filling in the character of Darcy, weaving in an Upstairs/Downstairs story line about Darcy's butler and keeping it all consistent with the plot of Pride and Prejudice. It drags a little at times, and the reader is really bad at women's voices, but despite those drawbacks this is a very satisfying read for fans of Pride and Prejudice. Head and shoulders above the other Austen spin-off I've read.
