Poor Colonel Fitzwilliam has to be married off in any P&P sequel, but this time the poor thing gets all mucked up in love for Georgiana Darcy and irritating responsibilities as a member of the Prince Regent's entourage. Would have been 3 stars if the author had managed to keep herself from using modernisms in speech and cut the whole thing down to 200 pages or so. Georgiana is tolerable as a narrator but I find her 20th-century-Raising Ophelia personality change unconvincing, not to speak of ...more
In this sequel to Pride and Prejudice, after the marriage of Lizzy and Darcy it is the time for Georgiana Darcy to come out into society and throughout the following year we read of her development and happenings.
A lovely book.
In my teens, I was a rather fanatic fan of every single one of Jane Austen's novels. Of course, my ultimate favourite was Pride and Prejudice - not entirely not because of my huge crush on Colin Firth, as you might have been able to guess. Considering the fact that I have read pretty much everything Jane Austen has ever written more than once, it's a small miracle that I have not read any of the books that continue the stories. It has been a conscious decision, something I have wanted to do in o ...more
If you know me, you know I'm a nerd. I'm a book nerd, I love to read. To add to that I'm an avid Janeite. I love me some Jane Austen!! My 'to-read' and 'read' lists on Goodreads each have piles of books set in Regency England, and many are actually based on characters from Jane Austen's beloved novels, the most popular are based on the characters of Pride and Prejudice.

Mr. Darcy's Little Sister is such a book. C. Allyn Pierson pens a tale about Georgiana Darcy, an important character in P&P
A mildly entertaining story starring Georgiana Darcy, it was a book I went into really wanting to like. Ultimately, there were some good moments, but overall, there wasn't really anything to get excited about.

I usually like to stick to P&P variations but this book did receive some good reviews from persons whose opinions I respect so when this book from my Wish List showed as available on kindle Unlimited I grabbed it. I was glad I did.

As some have mentioned this story is of a slow pace in the beginning. And some events can be misleading. WARNING: THERE ARE SOME SPOILERS WITHIN.

When Georgiana is visited by the son of a respected neighbor, one might think this is going to develop into something mo

While I did enjoy this book, I don't think that it necessarily went that well with Pride and Prejudice. Yes, it used several of the same base characters, but I think it would have been better to have invented a whole new group and develop relationship points on its own while borrowing some (like having duel dual guardians) when needed. Why do I think this? Mainly because she changed the voices of characters like Elizabeth and Darcy. While she described their personalities in a way that supported ...more

I sure like my Austen books, and of course those about Lizzy and Darcy. This book was good because it was about Georgiana, and what happened to her.

Lizzy and Darcy are married and it's time for Georgiana's first season. She is really nervous, and she is still very shy. In this book she will find love, and Darcy will have an adventure of his own.

I think she did well with portraying Georgiana. She was still that shy young woman from the books, and she has a hard time in this book. And of course we

In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, main character Mr. Darcy has a younger sister named Georgiana. While she’s a secondary character in P&P, I’ve always found her intriguing. Thankfully, in Mr. Darcy’s Little Sister C. Allyn Pierson has taken on the challenge of expanding the story to focus more on Georgiana as she grows into a young woman.

Mr. Darcy’s Little Sister begins in September of 1813, about a month before Pierson has placed the Darcy/Bingley wedding on October 19th. Georgiana is e

Mr. Darcy's Little Sister by C.Allyn Pierson is a Pride and Predjudice variation about the Bennets and Darcy's and the upcoming marriages of these two families. It is also about Georgiana Darcy's upcoming debut into society. A story that is about who will make the perfect husband or wife. Mr.Darcy woos and weds Elizabeth Bennet, who is not from the same social class as Mr.Darcy. Elizabeth learns to cope with the treatment of people who do not think she is good enough for Mr.Darcy and Fitzwilliam ...more
From my book review blog, Rundpinne....[return][return]While I tend to be hesitant to read novels based off Jane Austin’s Pride & Prejudice, I must admit C. Allyn Pierson did her homework when crafting her novel, Mr. Darcy’s Little Sister. As the title suggests, this novel puts the focus on Georgiana Darcy, a character that I always wished to know more about in Austen’s novel. Pierson gives Georgiana a decisive voice as she matures and is looking for true love, but can one exist when her wel ...more

I rather enjoyed this author's writing of a sequel of sorts to the wonderful Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Georgiana as a character given life in her own story is a most satisfactory one. As a fan of Austen I am pleased that I can say that I thought the novel, it's setting, it's language and style well-matched to that of Austen who would most likely have appreciated C. Allyn Pierson's efforts. I am glad I took the risk of borrowing it from my local library somewhat in trepidation of disappo ...more
This is the first P&P sequel I've read, and I know my expectations were too high. I still want to read Jane Austen, but I've read all of her work. To compare her to Pierson is, well, unfair to Pierson and Austen.

Mr. Darcy's Little Sister has an interesting plot although somewhat predictable. It's apparent early on who Georgiana will choose. The set up reminded me a great deal of Austen's other novel, Emma.
One of the parts of the writing that I disliked were Georgiana's diary entries. They we
Regency teen angst as Pride and Prejudice continues

It’s tough being a teenager, even if you are the handsome, accomplished and wealthy Georgiana Darcy. Your parents are dead and you have dull Mrs. Annesley for a companion. Being painfully shy and having an older brother like Fitzwilliam doesn’t help matters much either. His standards are incredibly high. He “cannot boast of knowing more than half a dozen [young ladies], in the whole range of my acquaintance, that are really accomplished.” And, t
Picking up where Pride and Prejudice leaves off... Georgiana Darcy is thrilled that her brother has found the perfect wife for himself, and she looks forward to getting to know Elizabeth better. But her extreme shyness seems to get in the way whenever she is in any social setting. This is going to be a huge problem particularly during her first season and her presentation at court, which is coming in just a few short months. Under the dedicated guidance and affection of her brother, his wife, Co ...more
C. Allyn Pierson‘s Mr. Darcy’s Little Sister is full of intrigue and societal maneuvering as Georgiana, Mr. Darcy’s sister, prepares for her presentation and first Season. The novel begins just as Georgiana learns of her brother’s engagement to Elizabeth, and she worries that her new sister will not like her. In Pierson’s novel, Georgiana is full of teen worries about who will like her and how she will be judged for her actions — no matter how mundane.

Coupled with a few shifts in point of view b

A sequel to Pride and Prejudice that focuses mostly on Darcy's little sister/ward, Georgiana, who prepares to make her debut in society just as Darcy brings home his new wife, the former Miss Elizabeth Bennet. Elizabeth's inherent friendliness is a perfect complement to Georgiana's natural uncertainty and the two hit it off right away. The good thing about having Fitzwilliam Darcy for an older brother is that any man who wants Georgiana for her fortune will have hell to pay...the bad thing is, a ...more
As a HUGE fan of Pride & Prejudice, I find myself reading spin-offs and other works about Austen's beloved characters all the time; but I must say - this has to be one of my favorites (up there with the Mr. Darcy, A Gentleman Series. Written from Georgianna Darcy's perspective, one that is often overlooked because she really is a secondary character in Austen's novel, this book takes on a very hefty challenge - showing Darcy and Elizabeth's relationship from a perspective of one who didn't j ...more

The first half was "tolerable, I suppose," but the second half...not so much. The climax of the book (I won't tell you what happened, as that would spoil it) was about halfway through. It was really predictable who Georgiana was going to end up with - I don't think the author was trying to create any confusion there. In the end, I felt like I didn't know Georgiana at all, and when she finally got together with her man, she turned into a complete airhead and lost all of her personality. I appreci ...more

Mr. Darcy’s Little Sister is a wonderful story that picks up right after Elizabeth and Darcy; and Jane and Mr. Bingley become engaged. However the main voice of the novel is from Miss Georgiana Darcy’s perspective, Darcy’s sixteen year old sister.

The book starts with Georgiana writing a letter to Elizabeth Bennet, her soon to be sister-in-law…“My dearest Sister –To-Be…I cannot even begin to tell you how delighted I am to know that you are making my brother the happiest of men! I look forwards wi

Mr. Darcy’s Little Sister is an enjoyable look at the life of Georgiana Darcy immediately after her brother’s engagement to Elizabeth Bennet. Georgiana is very excited about having a new “sister,” but also is very nervous about meeting her and first impressions. Her teen angst also extends to her upcoming first season in London and her presentation to the royal family.

Georgiana has the independence of a fine income to be able to marry for love rather than wealth. There is a downside to this ind
Maria Grazia
In this witty sequel to Pride and Prejudice, Mr Darcy's Little Sister, Georgiana Darcy takes centre stage. Her excessive timidity complicates her life; her self-confidence, mined by her misadventure with Mr Wickham, hasn't healed yet. She grows up in pursuit of true love and happiness but doesn't dare open her heart , neither to her beloved sister-in-law, Elizabeth Bennet, who now lives with her and Darcy. She wants to find a love that is every bit as true as Elizabeth and Darcy's. Georgiana is ...more
I usually enjoy Austin-like books, so I went into this one hopefully, and it does begin well, emphasizing the humor between Mr. Darcy and Miss Elizabeth and Georgiana's excitement at gaining a sister. But ... there must be better sequels. This one has cardboard characterization, modern language usage ("quite unique"), complete gaffes (it's "His Royal Highness the Prince Regent,"---only the monarch is "Majesty", thank you), and repetitive "journal" entries by Georgiana that add nothing to the nar ...more
I enjoyed the way the author draws you into Darcy and Georgiana's relationship. It's so defined. You can clearly see the bond of concern, loyalty, love, protection bestowed from one to the other. I liked how Georgiana's personality as a young teen on up is really develped. It was right on target if you ask me. (I have two grown daughters and granddaughters) As Georgiana matures and grows to love Elizabeth her attachment to Elizabeth and Kitty is very agreeable. I enjoyed the additon of Lord Byro ...more
Okay, I'll come clean: I didn't finish it. But, I enjoyed the beginning somewhat because Lizzy and Darcy always have my heart. It just went on and on with so little plot, it seemed more like a personal diary type thing and lets face it, diary reading can be very repetitive and boring to anybody else but the writer. Plus, another 200 pages of the same just wasn't enticing enough to finish. I may read the last chapter just to see how it ends. I think if the author had cut out half and developed a ...more
I liked how this story continued from the Pride and Prejudice book. Georgianna Darcy is the main character in this book. There aren't too many "wild" things that happen, but it expands on what it was like to live in England in that time period for women. It wasn't challenging for the brain, however, I did enjoy being able to not have to analyze things that were going on. Overall, a good read.
Mr. Darcy's Little Sister by C. Allyn Pierson was first published under the title And This Our Life: Chronicles of the Darcy Family, Book 1. This is the debut novel for C. Allyn Pierson. Mr. Darcy's Little Sister takes a different route than other Pride and Prejudice sequels as it is told through the eyes of Georgiana.

Georgiana Darcy is an angst filled teenager. She's filled with all of the confusing feelings that come with your teenage years; confusion about boys, lack of confidence, extreme se
