The Darcy Cousins By Monica Fairview

THE DARCY COUSINS
By Monica Fairview

About The Book:
A young lady in disgrace should at least strive to behave with decorum…

Dispatched from America to England under a cloud of scandal, Mr. Darcy’s incorrigible American cousin, Clarissa Darcy, manages to provoke Lady Catherine de Bourgh, Mr. Collins, and the parishioners of Hunsford all in one morning!

And there are more surprises in store for that bastion of tradition, Rosings Park, when the family gathers for their annual Easter visit. Georgiana Darcy, generally a shy model of propriety, decides to take a few lessons from her unconventional cousin, to the delight of a neighboring gentleman. Anne de Bourgh, encouraged to escape her “keeper” Mrs. Jenkinson, simply…vanishes. But the trouble really starts when Clarissa and Georgiana both set out to win the heart of the same young man…

About The Author:
As a literature professor, Monica Fairview enjoyed teaching students to love reading. But after years of postponing the urge, she finally realized what she really wanted was to write books herself. She has lived in Illinois, Los Angeles, Seattle, Texas, Colorado, Oregon and Boston as a student and professor, but now lives in London.

My Review:
My love of all things connected to Pride and Prejudice is certainly continued in this book by Monica Fairview. She does a wonderful job keeping the integrity of the characters in this continuation of the Darcy Family Saga. It's such a pleasure to follow Georgiana Darcy while she copes with her American cousin, Clarissa Darcy, and her unorthodox ideas on how young ladies should conduct themselves, resulting in all kinds of mayhem. All of which, is a feast of fun and entertainment to the reader. Don't deny yourself the exquisite experience. Choose The Darcy Cousins for your Summer Reading.
