The Many Lives of Fitzwilliam Darcy
When Fitzwilliam Darcy finally decides to make his wishes known to the lovely, complicated Elizabeth Bennet, most readers will already know what happens next: Elizabeth soundly rejects his suit, and the two part in mutual dissatisfaction. But what if Mr. Darcy got a second chance? A chance to do it right, or maybe a chance to make other things right? That’s the premise of The Many Lives of Fitzwilliam Darcy, in which the dark and brooding Mr. Darcy gets stuck in a loop of sorts, reliving that same day over and over again, stuck and unable to figure out how to get out. Readers, especially readers who already love Pride and Prejudice and all things related to Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, will enjoy this fun take on the classic story. Authors Beau North and Brooke West bring a fun sense of humor to an idea that could easily get tedious and dull; readers will be delighted to see the various stages of denial and madness that Darcy goes through as he tries to figure out what is wrong. He tries to change things, he tries to run away, he even plays pranks on his family and the household staff, but all to no avail. That is, until he truly begins to contemplate the perspectives of others and to understand how his behavior has come across. Readers will cheer when he finally gets it right, and the happy ending is deeply satisfying.
