Description

While Jane and Lizzie plan a lavish ball at Pemberley, the Darcys’ second son falls in love with the Collins’ daughter, first-born Juliet Darcy is almost lured into an elopement, and Georgiana’s timid daughter Lucy is the new target of Miss Caroline Bingley’s meddling. The Darcys Give a Ball is a charming and very amusing imagining of the next generation of Jane Austen’s beloved characters from Pride and Prejudice and other novels, where all the young people come together for a surprising and altogether satisfying ending. Sons and daughters share the physical and personality traits of their parents, but of course have minds of their own, and as Lizzie says to Jane: “The romantic attachments of one’s children are a constant distraction.” “Jane would be proud of you.” —Juliet McMaster, Professor of English, University of Alberta “A tour de force.” —Marilyn Sachs, author of First Impressions
