Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One
Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy depicts the first months of matrimony of the famous couple from Pride and Prejudice. The story commences the day of Lizzy and Darcy’s wedding, and though there is no plot, nor problem to be solved, there is enjoyment: Christmas at Pemberley, a Twelfth Night ball, Lizzy’s introduction to Derbyshire society and the ill-intentioned Lord Orman. This Pride and Prejudice sequel is firmly in the territory of romance, for overriding all else in the story is the dynamic sexual relationship of the former Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy: shown trysting in Pemberley’s many gorgeous rooms, before the fire on a bear-skin rug, and in the manse’s secret grotto.
In the foreword, Sharon Lathan describes being inspired to write Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One after seeing a film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Fans of films based on Jane Austen’s novels may be better pleased with Lathan’s work than those who love her incomparable fiction.
