Book Tour, Review & Giveaway: Sons of Pemberley by Elizabeth Adams #SonsofPemberley #ElizabethAdams #HFVBTBlogTours

Sons of Pemberley: A Pride & Prejudice Reimagining by Elizabeth Adams

Publication Date: November 27, 2020
Paperback & eBook; 468 pages

Genre: Historical Fiction/Regency

What if Lady Anne Darcy was alive to meet Elizabeth Bennet?

A sweeping tale of tragedy, devotion, and betrayal—spanning over 25 years and two generations—this family saga explores the life Fitzwilliam Darcy would have had if his mother had not died young.

An up-close view of the Darcys' marriage and Fitzwilliam’s childhood ... a retelling of the circumstances that shaped the man we have come to love ... a reimagining of the friendships and relationships that formed each iconic character ... a tale of love, loss, heartbreak, and triumph—that is Sons of Pemberley.


My Review
4 stars / I really liked it
I love a good Pride and Prejudice retelling, and this one really stands out as it delves deeper and encompasses multiple generations. I love that Darcy's mother is a main character as well as Wickham's father. Such creative storytelling as the narrative alternates between George and Anne Darcy as a young couple, and their son Fitzwilliam Darcy as a young adult meeting Elizabeth Bennet. The family dynamics we know from the original book shift as the influence of these missed characters shines light and goodness on the lives of their children. Darcy's cousin Marianne is also a fun character and adds spunk and humor to the story before Elizabeth is introduced. The family saga is not all roses though, as they deal with loss, betrayal, and disappointments. I was impressed with the direction and guidance Anne provides the people in her life, and the impact of her presence takes the characters in new directions while still providing a happy ending for our favorite couple. Highly recommend to fans of Austen and Austenesque retellings!
