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

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
Meredith (Austenesque Reviews)
Georgiana Darcy, at the tender young age of sixteen, is preparing for a very momentous time in her life as her debut into society and first London Season are only a few months away. This would be a daunting enough experience for any young lady, but for the nervous, motherless, and shy Georgiana it is an insurmountable ordeal. Due to the stress and anxiety she is experiencing, Georgiana occasionally looses her equanimity and lashes out with a sharp tongue. The victim of Georgiana's snippety remar ...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

Review originally posted on Diary of an Eccentric

C. Allyn Pierson pushes Georgiana Darcy to the forefront of Mr. Darcy’s Little Sister, a sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Austen did not focus much on Georgiana’s character, so readers know little about her aside from her almost elopement with the scoundrel George Wickham, her shyness, and the fact that her brother cares deeply for her and will do anything to protect her and her reputation. Pierson moves Georgiana out of Mr. Darcy’s sh

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 really liked this story that while starring Georgiana kept the Darcys and Bingleys looped into the plot. Beginning when she learns of Darcy's engagement to Elizabeth we watch Georgie struggle to become a lovely young lady in her own right. And struggle she shall.

I have several things that kept me from loving the book but I shall conceal them as spoilers

I picked this up in a charity shop and then sat enthralled! A page turner indeed! A really nice "sequel" to Pride and Prejudice focusing on Georgiana Darcy. Full of prejudices and romances and the same selection of characters which any reader of the book will know. Clever if a little straightforward in some places but a very enjoyable book.
This book was a really fun sequel for Pride and Prejudice told from Georgiana's point of view. This book takes place during Georgiana's preparation for and presentation into society and shows how she grows from being nervous about being presented at court and going to balls to becoming a strong and confident young woman and discovering she is in love with her cousin Colonel Fitzwilliam. They are an interesting couple and I have not come across many books about them and I enjoyed watching how Geo ...more

I would never ever read any post-Pride and Prejudice books because somehow the ending is enough ;; hahaha

It wasn't bad though, but most of the time I lost the gist of the story and my mind went ------

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
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

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

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 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

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

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
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

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

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

It probably isn't fair for me to ever review a revisiting of Pride and Prejudice. Their Darcy's are never my Darcy's. But, stupid me, I try to find that brilliance that Jane created.
Almost all modern sequels seem to do the same thing. They try too hard. Any reference Jane ever made is magnified. The language never feels genuine. It always reads like someone trying to sound uppity, which is exactly the case. The other thing they nearly all do is create a romance between Miss Darcy and the Colonel

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.

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
