Book Review: Death comes to Pemberley by P.D.James
"The Year is 1803, and Darcy and Elizabeth have been married for six years. There are now two handsome and healthy sons in the Pemberley nursery, Elizabeth's beloved sister Jane and her husband, Bingley, live within seventeen miles, the ordered and secure life of Pemberley seems unassailable, and Elizabeth's happiness in her marriage is complete. But their peace is threatened and old sins and misunderstandings are rekindled on the eve of the annual autumn ball. The Darcys and their guests are preparing to retire for the night when a chaise appears, rocking down the path from Pemberley's wild woodland, and as it pulls up, Lydia Wickham, an uninvited guest, tumbles out, screaming that her husband has been murdered." (Death comes to Pemberley)
The moment I heard P.D.James had written a book utilising the characters from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice I knew I had to read it. I love Pride and Prejudice and I love P.D.James' books so putting the two together seemed like an amazing idea and I wasn't disappointed with the result.
