This is a fabulous, thrilling, romantic adventure that also incorporates historical facts about the West Indies during the Regency period. It does take a while for the story to get to the New World, but there's lots of edge-of-your-set stuff going on right from the beginning.

The discovery of Wickham and Lydia in London leads to a duel in a London park, but first Elizabeth and Darcy declare their love for each other and share a passionate kiss. Tragically, he is mortally wounded and brought to hi

This is a book you want to allow a lot of time to read. It will draw you in and not let go.

Debbie B. posted an excellent review which had me putting this at the top of my pile of TBR books.

As the story description tells you Darcy is wounded during a duel (and it is not actually he who is one of the duelist) and then is presumed dead after his aunt, Lady Catherine takes him (against doctor's advice) away from his town house to Rosings. Elizabeth sees him in his coffin. Soon after she (with her ru

Recommends it for: Austenesque Readers, Historical Romance

Are you ready to embark on an adventure with Elizabeth and Darcy that tests their love for each other beyond the norm? Are you ready to see them fight for what they believe in? Then this is the book for you!

Right from the start, the action begins and you are immersed in Wickham's thoughts. What that man has done will not surprise you, but what comes after will!

"Not being a man given to self-examination, nor to reverie even, it wasn't an easy task." (quote from the book)

Throughout most of this

Debbie summarized the story nicely.

Definitely a unique take on P&P. It’s a page turner full of angst. You really want to root for both Darcy & Elizabeth.

Dear Reader,

Where do I start in proclaiming the merits of this wonderfully compelling,angst filled, heartbreaking yet oddly satisfying tale?

Do I begin at the addictive first chapters where all appears lost and a beloved character,bereft at the loss of a potential life partner,makes a life changing decision,one that will have extraordinary consequences for her and those she holds dear?

This was a wonderful story which will capture your heart,tug at your emotions and have you praying for a happy r

Recommends it for: Mature readers who like historical fiction and romance.
Recommended to Donna by: Intrigued by the blurb.
Historical Content, True to Austen Characters in Extraordinary Circumstances who Show Growth.

Although this is a first novel for Maggie Mooha, I consider this among the oustanding Austen variations that I have read and give it my highest recommendation. If you dislike violence this is not for you, though. It is so well written with such depth of thought and outstanding research that I really did not notice if there were grammatical flaws. It is one of the most professional and profound of this ge

So Very Different

Looking for a truly heroic Darcy?
Looking for an Elizabeth to admire?
Read this book.
And then, together, we can all wait for this author to write another.

Intense dose of reality

What a story. Imagine dropping Cinderella and Prince Charming into the middle of the Syrian war without any modern technology. This is what kind of happens to Lizzy and Darcy.

The things that happened to Lizzy are just awful and she thinks Darcy is dead. This takes place on the island of Genada in the West Indies.

It really strips the artificial society of Regency England and shows the veneer of civilization can be be punctured and lost fairly easily. It was all to violent

It is 2:57 AM, and I sitting here blurry eyes because I couldn't stop reading this book. Lady Catherine and her dastardly behavior could not !keep out dear Darcy and Elizabeth apart. Wickham became a better man after fighting Fedon's rebellion. After months apart, Darcy rescued Elizabeth thanks to the help of a slave woman, Poppy.

What if Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice went to Grenada with new acquaintances, sailing right into danger as Fedon’s Rebellion was about to start on the island? This is a question that I had NEVER asked myself (mainly because I almost never thought about Grenada and had never even heard about Fedon’s Rebellion)! But Maggie Mooha DID think about what would happen if this occurred…and she wrote a book about it.
This book is a romance (Darcy is around somewhere, so have no fear, fans of Elizarc

Is this how I pictured things would turn out for Elizabeth and Darcy after the fact, or as a so-called sequel? I’m not sure. There is much research that has been put into the book as well as thought. We might all have had our own ideas how things turned out but now someone has put it into a very good book. The writing is very Austenesque, set in the same Georgian Era. Maggie Mooha portrays Elizabeth and her sisters as if Austen’s book is Book 1 and Mooha’s is Book 2 of the series. It truly seems ...more

As a historical fiction lover, literature major, and former English literature teacher, I loved Elizabeth in the New World (full disclosure: I was a beta reader for this novel). The history is accurate and presented in a way that makes it more than just another rebellion. I didn’t know anything about Fedon’s rebellion and it has become part of my learning about the experiences of the African diaspora. I loved that the characters from Pride and Prejudice kept their essentials, but also developed ...more

Great Read

This was more of an adventure than I was expecting. The characters were well developed and grew as real people would. It was a good insight to the conflicting world of class and standards of another time. I would definitely recommend this book as a great way to spend a day reading.

In this Pride and Prejudice variation, the result of Wickham and Lydia's elopement is a duel with Mr. Bennet. This ends badly for Darcy. But then the adventure starts, not just for Elizabeth but also for Darcy as we find Elizabeth onboard a ship to Grenada in the New World. For a future without Darcy.
An enjoyable adventure story with romance as well.

A breathtakingly original twist and continuation on a cherished Austen classic, Elizabeth in the New World opens doors to "what-ifs" and imaginative, well thought out scenarios that will leave fans of the original book enthralled and satisfied. A well written, exciting novel that is both daring and unique. I look forward to more from this author!

I’ve always been a storyteller. When I was little, I used to tell my sister stories before we went to sleep. Most of them were serials – Superman and the like. It never occurred to me until much later in life that I should try my hand at writing.

Most of my career, I’ve been a music teacher. I’ve found music such a help when crafting a story. I actually see the structure of a book as if it was a mu
