Review on: Letters from Pemberley: The First Year by Jane Dawkins
Letters are more than just conversations between people; they give us a glimpse into the daily lives and events of people and places, sometimes long after their authors have gone from this world. And just as many fans of Jane Austen have come to know and understand her more, beyond her novels, thanks to her nephew James Edward Austen-Leigh who saved many of her letters, Letters from Pemberley is a glimpse into the world of Jane Austen’s beloved character Elizabeth Darcy (nee Bennet) told from the imagination of a fellow fan.
Like many fans, we oft inquisitively wonder and imagine whatever happened at the end of the Pride and Prejudice (P&P) novel. Letters from Pemberley is among the novels I’ve read which try to imagine Elizabeth Bennet’s life after the events of P&P which led her to become Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy.
