Second excerpt from my next book! — 8 Comments

  1. A great new story, Abigail! I just discovered this blog, and I am all anticipation to read the entire story. Your excellent writing style is so delightfully familiar to me ever since the time when I read your very first story on BoI.

    Best wishes,

  2. Wow, this is really different. I thought Mr. Darcy’s Journey had a unique twist, but it doesn’t compare to this. I can’t wait to see how it pans out. What inspired the idea of a successful French invasion and occupation?

    • Actually, I came up with it as part of a brainstorming list for another writer who was looking for a very different P&P, and then I kept thinking about it and decided I really wanted to write it myself – especially after I made a certain historical discovery you’ll hear about in a few chapters. 🙂

  3. I love the scene in the forest with Darcy, Elizabeth, and the puppies.

    Jane pretending to have consumption is very clever

    I’m looking forward to the next excerpt. Thank you for sharing.

  4. I too am very interested in where this will go. I very much enjoyed the scene in the woods but was surprised at how playful Darcy was. Usually it takes him awhile to warm up. Also, there is a small grammatical error I’m sure you’ll catch before you’re finished but in case you haven’t yet – I think I liked it better when…and you WERE pointing a pistol at me. I just reread Mr. Darcy’s Journey because I have to read one of your books quite frequently or I go into withdrawals.
    Thank you for all the great stories and getting the chemistry between Elizabeth and Darcy just right.
