Pride and Prejudice sequel, book 2.

The second book in Wasylowski's family saga of the gentleman and officer. If you have not read the first book of Darcy and Fitzwilliam I would advise you to do so.

The highlight of this book, and the entire serie, is the cleverly written banter, dry wit and snarky comments. Despite the dark ambience in this serie, I have laughed out loud too many times to count.
In the forefront of the battle of wits are the gentleman and officer but in this book we have in add

Wonderful, Funny and definitely diverting. I loved every minute of this story. As the title states this is a story of Darcy and Col Fitzwilliam"s children. The story spans 20yrs or so. Our beloved characters are still the same but getting older and having to deal with family and children! And all our favorite characters are there.(Lady Catherine causing trouble). I can't tell you how many times I laughed out loud and had to turn around to make sure no one saw me. The children's antics were funny ...more

This story follows Fitzwilliam Darcy and his cousin Colonel Fitwillaim and their family. You see their children grow to young adults in this story and their struggles with relationships (even with each other) and their parents. Darcy and Fitzwilliam have to make difficult decisions regarding their family but at the same time you see their love, sacrifices and understanding....

I enjoyed this story immensely. Son's and Daughters is delightfully crafted and different from any continuation of Pride

Such a great series

Just finished this wonderful book, the second in the Darcy and Fitzwilliam series. This one was as good as the first. I loved the dialogue and the lovely relationship between Darcy and Fitzwilliam and their families. A great read!
I remember the first time I read Pride and Prejudice and chuckled to myself at the little tongue-in-cheek humor that Austen used.  Elizabeth's observations and statements (especially about Mr. Collins) regarding those around her were always sure to get a rise out of me.  It's this memory that makes me so happy that there is an author in the Austen fan fiction world that can continue to make me laugh with these characters.  Karen Wasylowski is this author and it was her first book, Darcy and Fitz ...more

Karen V. Wasylowski has done it again with SONS AND DAUGHTERS, an often hilarious, sometimes soul-wrenching, but always engaging tale as she continues the saga begun in the delicious DARCY AND FITZWILLIAM: A TALE OF A GENTLEMAN AND AN OFFICER.

True to the title, Darcy's and Fitzwilliam's children dominate the story. Darcy has three and Fitzwilliam nine. (Nine, you say? The man has worked overtime.) The book spans twenty years and we laugh and cry along with both clans as the parents age and thei

It's a very poignant very good!

What is addressed in this variation is how women were / are mistreated, abused and made to marry or do things that are against there own wishes. It has been an on going issue through the ages with women abused by disgusting lecherous men particularly in this era when this was rampant. This P&P variation opens up with a startling incident of the worst kind and absolutely captures the time period by what is done to hide away this terrible incident

This second book by Karen Wasylowski was actually a pleasant surprise for me. I was not a fan at all of her first book Darcy and Fitzwilliam: A Tale of a Gentleman and an Officer. I'm not even all that sure why I gave the second a try, except that it seemed to be getting better reviews. I will add one more to that pile I suppose.

Sons and Daughters follows the children of Darcy and Fitzwilliam from childhood, into adolescence, and finally to adulthood. Darcy and Fitzwilliam are charming to watch

A continuation of the previous book and book two of the series. It was strange. It could have been written by someone else. Since I read these back to back, I was surprised at how much her style changed for the second book. It was consistent with book 2 to book 3. The story was still romantic and interesting but less D and F than the first.
