I was very sad when I came to the end of Echoes of Pemberley and my journey with Sean and Catie, until I discovered that there was a sequel! The Heart Does Whisper, a story of Sean and Catie's first year as a married couple. I couldn't wait to read it and once again I had a late night finishing it!

I mentioned in my review of the first story, Echoes of Pemberley, that I would have liked to see more of Sean and Catie's courtship once they were together; this book satisfies that wish. Although the

In this sequel to Echoes of Pemberley, a modern sequel to Pride and Prejudice, Catie and Sean set off for America as newlyweds. Sean has a position waiting for him in Savannah as a teacher of troubled young boys. This book chronicles the all the trials and joys of their first year of marriage.

I liked this book. Not quite as much as the first one, but I enjoyed it a great deal. It was simple and sweet and just the thing to curl up with on a rainy day accompanied by a cup of tea. Catie and Sean ar

If you have not already had the pleasure of encountering these charming novels by Cynthia Ingram Hensley, please allow me to introduce you!

Echoes of Pemberley is a Pride and Prejudice inspired novel about the descendants of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy. The story takes place in 1986, has some parallels to Jane Austen's beloved novel, and contains a turbulent young romance between a sheltered heiress with a fiery temper and a "insufferable" Irish lad who was raised on a horse farm...

I loved The Heart Does Whisper! It is the sequel to Echoes of Pemberley; a modern Pride and Prejudice inspired story (more like a continuation of P&P as it is about the descendants of Elizabeth and Darcy).

After four years of dating Sean and Catie get married! Sean has finished school at the university and has accepted an internship at Norbury, a boys school in Savannah, GA. They will begin their married life in America - far away from family and friends. Catie has a lot to learn about being

I really liked 'Echoes of Pemberley' so I was super excited to read this book. I love the characters, and I think the author did a great job of expanding their stories and showing us a bit of their future. I think she stayed true to the characters and I was happy with how everything ended up.

I would rate it better, but there was a ton of newlywed sex in there, which, while sometimes cute, is not something I really need or want to read about.

I really liked this story. It makes you witness Sean and Catie grow as a couple and as persons.

A lovely and uplifting tale worth the time and expense.

I was born in Asheville, NC – home to a grand mansion much like Pemberley. The Biltmore Estate or “the Lady” (as us Ashevillians like to call the house) really put Asheville on the map in the late 1800’s. I still remember my grandfather (papaw) telling us that when he was a boy, Lady Vanderbilt would bring Christmas gifts to the children of All Souls Episcopal Church in Biltmore Village.
