9780992131029: Follies Past: A Prequel to Pride and Prejudice
Présentation de l'éditeur :

Written with great care to read as closely to Jane Austen herself, Follies Past is a masterful prequel to the classic Pride and Prejudice. The story, characters, and setting are meticulously researched and written to give Jane Austen fans the closest thing to a new novel from her. Before there was a single man in possession of a good fortune at Netherfield, there was a single man in want of a wife in London. His name was Wickham and he was bent on marrying himself into as much wealth as he might contrive, preferably to the detriment of the man who had destroyed all his prospects in life – the man known as Darcy of Pemberley. The tale begins at Pemberley, at Christmas, almost a year before the opening of Pride and Prejudice. Caroline Bingley is convinced of Mr. Darcy’s affection and determined to convert his regard into matrimony as swiftly as possible. Fourteen-year-old Georgiana Darcy has been taken from school, and is about to be sent off to face the rigours of a life in London. As the cast turn their faces to that city, one gentleman awaits them with all the charm and fascination that a handsome face and merciless ambition can beget. The story follows young Georgiana to London, to Ramsgate and to the brink of a perilous elopement, bringing readers all the wit, the drama and the delights of their beloved Pride and Prejudice. Authentic in its use of language, meticulously researched, and faithful to Austen’s classic, it is the book Austen fans have been waiting for!

Description du livre Petticoat Press. Paperback. État : New. Paperback. 280 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.2in. x 0.7in.I must now mention a circumstance which I would wish to forget myself, and which no obligation less than the present should induce me to unfold to any human being. . . So begins Mr. Darcy to lay before Elizabeth his faithful narrative of Mr. Wickhams villainy toward his sister, Georgiana. The facts he sets out are brief but potent. They contain a story unto themselves, and that story is the subject of this book. Taking its facts from Austens own words, Follies Past opens almost a year before the opening of Pride and Prejudice itself, at Pemberley, at Christmas. Fourteen-year-old Georgiana has just been taken from school and is preparing to transfer to London in the spring. It follows Georgiana to London, to Ramsgate and into the arms of the charming and infamous Mr. Wickham. To read this book is to step back into the charming world of Jane Austens England, to pass a few more hours with some of her beloved characters, sympathetically portrayed as they might have been before ever they came to Netherfield, and to discover a host of new characters each with engaging histories of their own. Authentic in its use of language and meticulously researched, it is a truly diverting entertainment. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
