    I really appreciate this Darcy. He is an older, family man, who looks out for the well-being of everyone. I enjoyed this book and loved this cover.

      I am glad you enjoyed the book. The Darcy in this story had certainly done some growing in the intervening years! I will forever be impressed with how Zorylee Diaz-Lupitou, the cover artist, managed to find a 19th century painting that so perfectly captured the family. Her concept of the children being incomplete sketches is particularly inspired.

    I really feel for Darcy in this story. I haven’t actually read it yet as I’m not a huge angst lover but I have read a few books now which reduced me to tears yet which I thoroughly enjoyed so I may be ready for this.
    I like the idea of Darcy being thoughtful and caring as he seems to be here. My Darcy would be kind, romantic, passionate and devoted to me (as well as tall, dark and handsome 😊)
    Merry Christmas 🌲

      You will love Darcy in this book, Glynis, and the angst is bearable. It’s a realistic, lovely characterization of an older Darcy who has matured in his relationship with his wife and become a devoted father. You’ll be crushing on him worse than ever!

      Honestly, I’m not a huge angst lover either! I feel like there’s sort of an inherent silliness to the amnesia trope that balances the angst somewhat.

    When I saw the picture of the Darcy you picked, Ann, I was pleased and impressed. So many images to choose from, and your choice is the aging Darcy. He’s not forever 28. Sigh. So handsome.

      Kudos to Zorylee and her digital repaints of “The Golden Butterfly.” Before Mr. Harvey was transformed into Mr. Darcy, he sported quite the unflattering mustache.

    Loved this story both as an unpublished tale and when it was then published! Darcy is so steadfast – not giving in to the anxieties as to whether or not Elizabeth will regain her memory and become the loving wife she was. And he takes on more than just his own offspring, which is huge. But he also spreads himself very thin as Elizabeth is not only not “there” to support him, she is also not there doing her part, a part she did out of love and the sharing of all that parenthood demands on top of being “mistress” to the estate and wife to Darcy.

      I am so glad you enjoyed the story. Events certainly challenged Darcy’s fortitude, but he (almost always) rose to the occasion.

    This cover is absolutely beautiful! I fell in love with the picture when the book was first released, and I think it’s perfect for Mr. and Mrs. Darcy and their family.

      I agree! It captures the entire family so well that when I look at it, I don’t even question which girl is Julia and which girl is Eliza.
