Pride and Prejudice

The popularity of Jane Austen continues years and years after her death. Now there are several sequels, prequels or titles based on many of her works, but most especially "Pride and Prejudice" and its characters.  

So if you need a little bit more of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy and their family, here are a few titles to get your started.

  Through the honeymoon and then the challenges of Elizabeth assuming the role of Mistress of Pemberley, the Fitzwilliams' passion and love for each other grows. To Lizzy's delight, Darcy's sister, Georgiana, returns home just as Christmas preparations are underway, but all is not calm--the marquis of Orman, whom Elizabeth first encounters at the Twelfth Night Ball, has sinister intentions.
