Mrs Darcy's Dilemma Reviews

    Unlike the plethora of “Pride and Prejudice” sequels that begin immediately or soon after Darcy and Elizabeth's wedding, “Mrs. Darcy's Dilemma” by Diana Birchall uniquely opens twenty-five blissful and flourishing years into the Darcy's marriage. Throughout the past quarter of a century Darcy and Elizabeth have had little to disturb their happy marriage and are now the proud parents of three grown children. Fitzwilliam, the older son and heir to Pemberley, perhaps inspires more anxiety than pride since he doesn't show as much aptitude for managing an estate as he does horses and racing. Henry, the younger son who is intending to be ordained soon, takes after his mother with his intelligence, compassion, and quick wit. Jane, the youngest in the family, has just turned seventeen and is preparing for her coming out into society. The Wickham's, unfortunately, have not experienced a joyful and successful life these past twenty-five years. George Wickham now spends his days and his money imbibing alcohol, leaving Lydia to manage and care for eight children. Lydia, despondent and wretched over the fate of her two eldest daughters, petitions the Darcy's for assistance, resulting in an invitation for Bettina, 20, and Chloe, 17, to stay at Pemberley. Knowing that their own children could use a little more society and fresh conversation, the Darcy's happily anticipate the arrival of the two eldest Misses Wickhams. Their only fear is that their sons may become romantically attached to these fair young cousins, but that occurrence is highly improbable...or is it?One of things I enjoyed most about this charming sequel was the focus on the Darcy and Wickham children. These new characters, crafted by Diana Birchall, were interesting, diverse, and a fitting addition to the “Pride and Prejudice” populace. I especially liked Henry, he reminded me a lot of Henry Tilney with his kindness and teasing. I'm afraid I wasn't too fond of Fitzwilliam though; you would think that since he respected and regarded his father so highly he would try to emulate him more. Instead he avoids his responsibilities and behaves quite vulgar and unabashed; I would like to think Mr. Darcy would raise his son to be better. Another aspect I greatly enjoyed was the author's tone throughout the narration of this novel. Especially the long passages of narration at the beginning of the novel that fondly and personally reintroduced us to the characters of “Pride and Prejudice.” While not exactly writing with Jane Austen's biting social commentary, I do compliment Ms. Birchall for capturing Jane Austen's honest and elegant narrative style. My one small complaint for this novel is with some characters having mistresses and/or scandalous professions. I know these things did occur in Jane Austen's time, even in some of Jane Austen's novels, yet in this instance I felt these occurrences malapropros and more appropriate for a Georgette Heyer novel rather than a Jane Austen sequel. If you feel an inclination to visit Pemberley twenty-five years after “Pride and Prejudice,” then “Mrs. Darcy's Dilemma” is the book I recommend for you! I was delighted by this tale of the Darcy and Wickham offspring and I greatly enjoyed being with the characters of “Pride and Prejudice” once again. I eagerly look forward to reading more works by Diana Birchall especially her short story collection about Mrs. Elton titled, “Mrs. Elton in America: The Compleat Mrs. Elton Trilogy.” Austenesque Reviews

    I have learned to avoid reading Jane Austen sequels. I most especially avoid books that transform Austen characters into werewolves, vampires, mermaids, psychopomps, etc. Diana Birchall's writing, however, is a cautionary tale: don't make broad edicts about everything. Birchall has a lively sensibility and a delicious ear for Austen's prose and characterization.Her book is a continuation of Pride and Prejudice written with wit, sensibility, sensitivity, and authority. She projects the Bennet family into the 1830's with plausible delight. Each character retains the integrity of Austen's vision and the added characters---the new generation---are perfect for their time period. If you love Austen as an ironic observer of the social panoply and a genius at characterization, then you must read Birchall whose polished prose is an eminently worthy successor to Austen. Indeed, I suspect that Birchall writes precisely the kind of book Austen would have written had she lived two or three decades longer.

    This was a witty and delightfully well-written novel, continuing the story of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy -- happily married in midlife, now parents to three young adults who are embarked on their own romantic adventures as the Victorian age dawns. I enjoyed how it echoed Austen, reprising characters, situations and even words in a way that felt like homage, not imitation

    Mr. and Mrs. Darcy have been happily married five and twenty years. They have three children: a daughter Jane, whom they done on excessively; younger son Henry, a fine young man who is about to be ordained; and Fiztwilliam, the horse-mad heir who wants nothing to do with learning how to run Pemberley as it should. Mrs. Clarke, formerly Kitty Bennet, whose husband is the parish rector, spends a lot of time at Pemberley too. When Elizabeth receives a letter from her sister Mrs. Wickham, inviting her two oldest unmarried daughters to visit Pemberley, Elizabeth is shocked and outraged. What if their moral character is so low as to corrupt the Darcy children? Reasoning that their morals certainly can't be worse than their parents and that Elizabeth could be a good influence on them, Miss Elizabeth (Bettina) and Miss Chloe are sent for. The two girls cause chaos at Pemberley and force the Darcys into the modern Victorian age. I only read Jane Austen sequels when I run out of things to read. I only read e-books when I'm traveling light. Over the holiday weekend I was in both situations and I'm sorry I downloaded this book. It was incredibly poorly written and the Kindle edition had so many typos and errors that it was difficult to read. The writing is simplistic but at times tries to mimic the style of Jane Austen by repeating or rewriting some of her phrases and dialogue. The story reads like a short story instead of a novel. The action is a bit surprising and far-fetched. The good parts of the story are glossed over too quickly. I rated this OK because there were some plot elements I liked and wanted more of and something shocking happens to a character and I had to keep reading to find out what happened. I didn't like the characterization of the characters I know and love. I don't see Mr. Darcy turning into Mr. Bennet whenever guests are around. I also don't see him as that accepting. Kitty turns into a copy of Mary just because she's unhappy. The kids are stereotypical and two-dimensional. The nad characters are really bad and the good characters are too good. Maybe this is supposed to mimic 18th century novels? The characters I did like are Elizabeth, who is charming but a bit meddlesome and hypocritical, and Mary, who remains the same. I felt bad for Mary actually. Content advisory: Lydia's daughter does some very shocking adult things. Technically it's not more than Georgette Heyer wrote about but in Heyer's case, it was usually in passing reference.

    In this sequel to "Pride and Prejudice" we are introduced to Mr. and Mrs. Darcy 25 years later. They now have three children of their own: the youngest, Jane, takes after her namesake and aunt, Henry is the image of his father, but unfortunately Fitzwilliam, the elder son and Darcy's heir, is a bit too much like his aunt Lydia for his parents' liking. This becomes all too apparent when Mrs. Darcy invites Lydia's daughters to come for a visit, and Fitzwilliam looses his heart to the elder, thus embarking on a scandal that will upset the entire family.While amusing, the plot unfortunately offers little new to the reader, who'll be able to guess the ending at a very early stage. Instead the strength of the novel lies in Diana Birchall's writing style. She has studied Jane Austen's writing closely, and her fidelity to this style - in both words and plot - enables her to cross the line between "fanfiction", and a novel worthy of being a sequel to one of the great classics. The characters are exactly as I remember them - which is almost a shame in the case of Lydia, as she is precisely as intolerable as always, making me occasionally want to put away the book in disgust over her behaviour. Elizabeth is as kind as ever, and while ardent admirers of Mr. Darcy will regret that he makes such a small appearance, when he does show up on the pages, he is exactly the loving husband loyal readers expect him to be.I seldom read sequels written by a different author, as I fear nobody will be able to do the original author justice. This is especially the case with my favourite authors, and I was therefore somewhat reluctant to start this book, but had not turned many pages before I saw that Diana Birchall had managed to do what I deem most important in any sequel - she had managed to capture the spirit of Jane Austen. For that alone I could easily forgive her the predictability of the novel, and enjoy it for what it was - a loving homage to one of England's greatest writers.

    Generally, I quite liked this novel. Unlike many other Pride & Prejudice sequels, the story does not begin right after Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth’s wedding, but 25 years into their marriage, which I think is quite unique. It tells the story of Mrs. Darcy in her 40s and the trouble she has keeping her children, as well as her sister Lydia Wickham’s children in check. Elizabeth Darcy’s own children are Fitzwilliam, her eldest child, whose character description in the beginning of the book is more or less limited to his liking of horse racing and drinking, Henry, the second son, who is the more sensible of the two and is planning to become a clergyman, and Jane, her only daughter and youngest child. Mr. and Mrs. Bingley have one son, who is extremely spoilt and whose behavior has much to ask for. Kitty married a clergyman, Mr. Clarke, but spends most of her time at the Darcy’s household. She has grown quite bitter. Mrs. Wickham has eight children, of which she has sent two to stay at the Darcy’s for a while: Bettina and Chloe. Bettina is the elder one of the two, and is basically a Lydia v2.0: arrogant, conceited, and incredibly rude, while Chloe is a modest, shy, but pleasant young woman who is immediately liked by the Darcy family. As you will probably expect, Bettina’s presence at Pemberley leads to a lot of trouble!Again, like I remarked in my previous review (here), there is much about this plot that is incredibly predictable: Lydia’s daughter turns out to be very similar to her and gets into the same kind of trouble. However, the other new characters are not cliché per se. I read an interesting review on, where Linda Waldemar argued that many of the characters show similarities to characters from other novels by Jane Austen than Pride & Prejudice. I think she makes a good point, which makes this novel particularly interesting for Austen addicts.The way in which this novel was written, is very reminiscent of Austen’s writing style, while it still reads like a contemporary novel. Because of this, it is an easy read for a Sunday afternoon, similar to Presumption by Julia Barrett. What is unlike Austen’s writing style, however, is that Birchall does include references to historical events, such as the fact that Victoria becomes Queen. Also, she clearly illustrates the difference between the time in which her novel takes place versus the time in which Pride & Prejudice is set by emphasizing that society is changing, with London being much more modern than the rest of the country. Specifically, Mr. and Mrs. Darcy have to raise their children in a country where societal rules become less strict and a younger generation starts rebelling against them. This historical aspect makes the novel less Austenesque, but more pleasant to read as a contemporary sequel, in my opinion.

    I was intrigued by this sequel to the classic tale of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy from the beginning, if only for the uniqueness of the setting. Instead of the usual starting point of after their wedding or in the early years of their marriage, Birchall instead takes the reader over two decades into the future, when Mr. and Mrs. Darcy are still very much in love and the proud parents of three adult children.Of course, this future is not entirely golden, and Birchall did a great job mixing Austen's canon characters and the realism of life. That Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, for all their care and good sense, managed to have a son who behaved more like a mixture of Lydia's selfishness and Mr. Bennet's obliviousness than either of them, speaks to real life more than anything, and I thought it was a great touch.What I love most about this book is that Birchall really took into account the fact that this really is over two decades after Elizabeth and Darcy's marriage. Society has changed much, and indeed the story ends just as the Victorian Age begins, and hints at the changes that will soon descend on Pemberley's idyllic world.For all that, I did have a few problems with the story. I disliked the treatment of Kitty's character. The end of P&P mentions her great improvement after she spends much of her time under Jane and Elizabeth's influence. I grant you that her disappointments in life -- not having any children of her own and being forced to dote on her sister's children -- might engender some sadness and even bitterness on Kitty's part, but I didn't like that she basically fell back into who she was as a young girl. It felt a bit too much like a cop out to me. Jane and Elizabeth were given the chance to grow and mature in their adulthood, and even Mary seems a bit more mature than she was in the book, why not Kitty? Overall, an intriguing look into the future of the classical characters and where their lives went after the curtain fell on Jane Austen's part of the story.

    Mrs. Darcy's Dilemma: A Sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and PrejudiceTwenty-five years after Elizabeth and Darcy's marriage, they are still very much in love. They have two sons and one daughter. Fitzwilliam, their oldest, seems to be a problem in that he doesn't take his responsibility of inheriting Pemberley seriously and seems not to be very smart. How the Darcys could have birth this child is a mystery. Their second son, Henry, seems to have inherited the good sense and smarts of the Darcys. Their daughter, Jane, is beautiful and the apple of her father's eyes. Tragedy falls upon Pemberley when the two oldest daughters are invited to Pemberley followed by their mother, Lydia. One daughter, Bettina, is an exact copy of her useless mother and father combined, whereas the other daughter, Cloe, reminds the Darcys of Jane Bingley. Disaster strikes their oldest son who is left paralyzed from the waist down. While Darcy and Elizabeth are upset, Darcy knows his second son will help run Pemberley. The thing I didn't like in this story was that Lydia, with her crude big mouth, was allowed to be at Pemberley in the first place especially when she loudly states that Bettina and Fitzwilliam will marry. Even after they do run off to London together, Lydia stays on. Darcy would never have let Lydia cause such a disaster. It would not be the stoic, proud, and proper Darcy of Austen's original story.

    As a rule, I don't like attempted sequels. I especially don't like attempted sequels of classic novels, when those sequels are written by wannabe Jane Austens or Margaret Mitchells.When I picked up Mrs. Darcy's Dilemma, I was prepared to dislike it. (When Austen wannabes try to be Jane, they fail miserably. No one can do that, so just stop trying, ok?) As I read the book though, I was pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying it instead. It was entertaining and difficult to put down. Diana Birchall didn't try to be Jane Austen. Thank goodness. Birchall did, however, manage to capture the essence of Pride and Prejudice as this novel picks up 25 years after the end of the original. Elizabeth and Darcy have 3 children and the novel is about the exploits of those children. Darcy's compassion is readily apparent, as is his pride and the expectation he has for his family. His tenderness with Elizabeth is sweet.While there is a bit too much Lydia in the book, I also found that Birchall's take on how Lydia's life turned out was believable. Her two eldest daughters play a major role in the book, and the Collinses, as well as Elizabeth's other sisters and Lady Catherine all make appearances as well.Overall, an entertaining and delightful read.

    "When Mrs. Darcy invited her sister Lydia's daughters to come for a visit, she felt it was a small kindness she could do for her poor nieces. Little did she imagine the upheaval that would ensue. But with her elder son, the Darcy's heir, in danger of losing his heart, a theatrical scandal threatening to engulf them all, and daughter Jane on the verge of her come-out, the Mistress of Pemberley must make some difficult decisions ..."~~back coverThe author captured all of Jane Austen's characterizations very nicely, with the exception of Mr. Darcy -- I think he would have been more involved with his family than he was. The new haracters: the one niece was very Jane Austen, but the other was entirely too brazen. The eldest son was also not a character I would have thought Jane Austen would have created, although the second son certainly was.The plot was rather weak, and very reminiscent of a major plot theme in Pride and Prejudice. The ending was entirely unsatisfactory, imho.

    Mrs. Darcy's Dilemma revisits the Darcy family 25 years later. In this sequel, readers get to visit Elizabeth and Darcy, and meet their children. The story, however, focuses on the Darcy children and their adventures in life and love. With the inclusion of their Wickham cousins, Aunt Lydia, Caroline Bingley, and Darcy's Aunt Catherine, you can bet the Darcys will face several dilemmas.Of the many sequels I have read to Pride and Prejudice, I liked this one the best. I enjoyed the fact that this story was not just an imagined continuation of Austen's original novel. I also appreciated that the author did not try to recreate Elizabeth and Darcy; but developed a seperate story incoporating them. Besides the above, I liked this author's imagining of the Darcy children and each child's struggle with pride and prejudice. I found the story well written and thought it kept true to Austen's style. Therefore, I would recommend this book to others.

    I have read quite a few Jane Austen sequels and fanfic, and this one has to be the best so far. Birchall's novel stands out because she captures the conversational tone and humor that Austen used to reveal her characters' characters: it's funny, light and respectful of Austen's world, and she does not try to rewrite it into our 21st century image. Set 25 years after Pride and Prejudice, she is not only able to show the mature versions of the Bennet sisters and all their in-laws and relations, but also present an engaging set of characters in the next generation. Henry and Jane Darcy are only mildly interesting, as good Young People must be, but there are plenty of less upright cousins to mix things up. I also liked the way that Birchall captured the changing times at the beginning of the Victorian age. This would be a good first choice for anyone who is interested in reading beyond Austen's canon.

    I cant help myself. I really liked this book. Now I know.. its not like Pride and Prejudice, but that was only one book.. what if I need a Elizabeth and Darcy there are several people out their whom write spin-offs of Jane Austens book but not all of them capture the feeling of D&E like this woman. I will without a doubt be reading more by her.This book is set after D&E have been married for a number of years and have 3 children. 2 sons and a daughter. Now, the oldest of the sons is a pompous ass and the middle son is more mellow and safe. When E's nieces come to visit, one is very much impulsive like her mother and the other is trying to make up for it. Problems arise and E definetly has a dilema but HEA does prevail because hey.. most likely I wouldnt read it if it

    The most interesting part of this book was reading about what had supposedly happened to all the characters of Pride and Prejudice in the 25 years following the book. However, when I read Austen I usually hear the voices from my favorite movie adaptations and I did not hear those voices very often while reading this book. Lydia was closest to what I would expect but her voice sounded like her mother which was what one would expect of Lydia 25 years after P&P so kudos to Birchall for that one at least. As far as plot lines go, I felt like this book borrowed much from Austen's books (and not just P&P). Usually when I become involved in a book I stay up through the night to finish reading but this book didn't hold me tightly enough for that and I was glad to go to bed and finish the book another day. So overall the book was good enough to finish but not one that I would ever read again.

    Another reviewer said that she thought this was a respectable effort, and I'd agree with that. (And I appreciate that it sounds a little condescending, but I mean it in a good way.) The book doesn't pander to horny Regency obsessives, nor does it come up with anything too out of the realm of Austen's reality. I really liked that. I liked that it didn't resort to gimmicks, and that Birchall managed to capture some of the liveliness of Elizabeth's wit and charm.Elizabeth's children are growing up, and out of the goodness of her heart, she invites two of her sister Lydia's oldest children to come and stay at Pemberly. Hijinks ensue. It's a good story, with smart moments of commentary, and I think most Austen lovers/purists would dig it.

    Entertaining and easily read, this book does a fine job of handling the new characters Birchall introduces; namely, the offspring of Elizabeth Bennet and two of her sisters. I enjoyed both the setting and story. One never quite feels they are seeing good old Lizzy, however, or Darcy, Jane or Bingley. Only Lydia comes through the pages as herself, and that is more than we want, actually, as she is as annoying as ever. Mary Bennet could also be said to make an appearance. But even Mr. Collins never quite makes it to the page, much as we wish he would. Otherwise, a fine handling of the period, and that's more than can be said about other Austen-continuation fiction.

    The first Pride and Prejudice sequel I've tried, and I liked it very much! The writing style seemed to fit organically with Jane Austen's (though it wasn't as witty) and it was really interesting to see Birchall's take on how the Bennett family changed in the twenty-five years after Elizabeth and Darcy's marriage. There were several times when I couldn't put the book down until I found out what happened next. The only thing I'll say here about the plot: when it comes to Lydia's daughter, the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree!

    Took me a little bit to get into it, but found if overall enjoyable.However, I felt that some of the characters's personalities were stretched to almost caricatures of what we know, or other characters made to almost not be as believable, given who they are.Basically, I felt that many of the characters were superficial, and that the author has a passing knowledge, like many, of who these characters are. It might have been more believable to me if it was a Regency story, and not necessarily a P&P sequel.Oh, well. Decent, quick read.

    This was entertaining enough, and a quick read - I finished it in two evenings. The way in which the sisters' lives and characters have developed from the original is convincing. My problem with this book is the language, and especially the humour does not come close to measuring up to Jane Austen. Now, I fully appreciate that not many people could, but if you take on the writing of the sequel, I feel you should come a little closer to it than this author.

  • Toastkat

    I must confess my latest obsession is Jane Austen rip-offs and sequels. Some are good, some are bad, and some are "meh". "Mrs. Darcy's Dilemma" fell under the "meh" section. It definitely felt like a fanfiction, and though it was written better than most, I felt that it lacked the sparkle that Jane Austen's original work had. If you can't get enough Regency-era fiction, I suppose this might fulfill your appetite while waiting for something better to come along.

    When I picked this book I guess I was thinking "I sure do wish I could read more Jane Austen. Too bad I've read all her books multiple times," and that is exactly what this book is meant to be--a quick fix for Austen addicts. It follows Jane Austen's style and plot devices with such precision there are no surprises throughout the book, but I wanted some surprises or I would have picked up _Pride and Prejudice_ again.

  • Leslie Hickman

    Its a bit shorter than I expected from an Austen sequel. It does have a slow start, but its still respectable. Not my first choice to read books, but I enjoyed the simpleness of the book. You read a bit and get a feeling that the author did not like most of the characters in Pride & Prejudice though and thought that they needed to get bashed around a bit to make them suffer like the author thinks that they should.

  • Brenda
    2019-05-19 13:34

    This is the third sequel I have read. It keeps with the tradition the other author I have read established for me. I like the way this book brings back Lydia and her family and of course any problems they would bring with them. Wonderful book! I look forward to reading it again. when I get a chance too.

    I have absolutely no recollection of the contents of this book; when I just read the summary again, I did get some faint stirring in my head when I read the word "theater," but I really don't remember. I won't say I didn't like it though, since being unmemorable doesn't mean it wasn't nice to read at the time. :)

    I think this has been my least favorite of all the Austen inspired books I've read these past few months.I didn't really care for the storyline for one thing. The characters were ho-hum and didn't ring true to me. [Except perhaps for Lydia.] Half Price Books didn't even want it when I went there to sell some books!

  • Cassandra
    2019-05-07 18:22

    This was an average book. The writing was pretty good, but I felt the author didn't really have the true essence of Jane Austen's characters. Charlotte and Miss Bingley rang true, but Elizabeth, Darcy, and Mr. Collins did not. It was a cute little story using Pride and Prejudice's names and locations.

  • Karrie
    2019-05-08 11:19

    I liked it. Was it the best book I've ever read? No. Was it enjoyable? Absolutely. The author remained very true to Jane Austen's characters and literary style. I found it to be a plausible, if not likely extension of P & P. At times, I even forgot that it wasn't Austen writing the story herself.

    If you like Pride and Prejudice, you'll probably like this book. I thought it was a fun, short read and I liked getting a little more of the characters--even though it really wasn't Jane Austen. It was a bit too predictable for me, but still enjoyable.

    Not exactly Jane Austen, but I think this a really cute sequel to Pride and Prejudice. It was interesting to see how Lydia's marriage to Wickham worked out, and how Caroline Bingley is still rude and bratty.

    While I enjoyed this book, I thought at times it was annoying and Mr. & Mrs. Darcy didn't behave as I would have expected them to behave. "Mrs. Darcy's Dilemma" was just OK.
