Teaser Tuesday: Darcy and Anne (ARC Edition) by Judith Brocklehurst

TEASER TUESDAYS : Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading ~ I always look forward to reading everyone's teasers!

My 2 “Teaser” Sentences (and a few extras for effect) for today:

Mr. Bennet began, reading from some papers in his lap. It was an historic tale - a prose story, written in such a poetic vein as to be almost poetry; a tale of a castle by moonlight, and a young girl waiting, sadly, for someone who did not return. The water fell splashing into the fountain, the white roses bloomed, the young girl wept. When Mr. Bennet stopped, Georgiana drew a deep breath, and Mrs Caldwell wiped away a tear.

~ p. 76, “Darcy and Anne" by Judith Brocklehurst

*** Please note that this teaser was taken from the uncorrected advance copy, and the final version may be slightly different. I am really enjoying this book, and will have the review up very shortly!!***




From Amazon:
It is a truth universally acknowledged that Lady Catherine will never find a husband or Anne…

When a fortuitous accident draws Anne away from Rosings and her overbearing mother's direct influence, she is able to think and act for herself for the first time ever. In the society of her cousins Darcy and Georgiana, and, of course, the lively Mrs. Darcy, Anne reveals a talent for writing and a zest for life.

Meanwhile, Lady Catherine is determined to choose a husband for Anne. But now that Anne has found her courage, she may not be so easy to rule.

Anne de Bourgh is a sympathetic character whose obedience and meekness were expected of women in her day. As she frees herself from these expectations, Anne discovers strength, independence, and even true love in a wonderfully satisfying coming-of-age story.

Sounds like a fun book - a little more interesting than some of the other books out lately, trading on the Jane Austen fad. Looking forward to seeing what you think about it. Nice teaser!

Interesting book you are reading there. I have also never read a P&P spin-off book as I call them but this one could be fun. I'll be looking for your review on this one.
