I love Pride and Prejudice and the many books that continue and/or adapt the story. I couldn't get past the second chapter of this book, though. The dialog was so stilted! I simply could not get involved in the story because I was distracted by the poor writing.

Desire and Duty was set after the end of Pride and Prejudice when Elizabeth and Darcy returned to Darcy's home in Devonshire , This story concentrates more on Darcy's younger sister Georgiana.

Over all it was an OK read and a nice attempt to continue the classic Pride and Prejudice

Hooray for the library - I can give this one back and never see it again. I think it's so appropriate that the call# for this is BAD.

Terrible, stilted writing, laughable dialogue, a dull and predictable plot, AND heavy-handed religious moralizing that would never have passed Jane Austen's pen. I felt throughout that the authors were trying to put across their own religious agenda. The characters were not true to P&P and the book had absolutely none of Austen's wit and sparkle. I finished it, but I will never touch a book by these authors again.
