Plight: unfortunate condition: a difficult or dangerous situation, especially a sad or desperate predicament
A Tale of Siblings and Surprises – that subtitle hints at a lot…more than I could have imagined. First: the title, The Plight of the Darcy Brothers, had me wondering, “What Darcy Brothers? Are we jumping into the future and reading of two sons to Darcy and Elizabeth? ” No, readers, we are going to learn something we have had hints about or even suspicions spoken by a character or ...more

Enjoyed the story even though I had trouble imagining old Mr. Darcy being caught with his pants down twice. Fitzwilliam eventually accepted one bastard brother, but struggled with accepting the other. When confronts the second bastard brother, this brother doesn't believe him and challenges to a duel.
I just finished this book and I am grinning ear to ear... Marsha Altman has continued to write a delightful series that warms the heart and soul of any P&P lover!!!
The story continues in a most unique way, yet still in keeping with Jane Austen's characters. In this volume the theme of birth out of wedlock and bastard sons is dealt with by the Darcy, Mattox, Bennett and Wickham families. Also Darcy's pride is tested.
Again, this story is probably more action oriented than perhaps Austen, but in no way detracts from the original P & P. I am thoroughly enjoying this series and looking forward to the next book.
The order of the "Darcys and the Bingleys" series is:
1. The Darcys and the ...more
