Darcy on the Hudson
By Mary Lydon Simonsen
Mary Simonsen definitely did her homework on Darcy on the Hudson. There is an incredible amount of history woven through out the story. The story begins in the summer of 1811. Mr. Darcy, his sister Georgianna and Mr. Bingley are on there way to visit America. While there they meet the Bennet family. Of course sparks fly between Elizabeth and Darcy but there American/British differences keep them apart. It is a turbulent time between the two countries.
A pleasant surprise in this story is Mrs. Bennet. I loved her! She is much more firm with Lydia and Kitty. She believes her girls should be capable to take care of themselves, they were taught to cook and do chores. She was wise, had common sense and her husband was proud of her.
Something else I found interesting, there are similar quotes as in the original Pride and Prejudice, but are said by different people.
Darcy on the Hudson is an excellent story! I enjoyed it very much.
