277 Signed Copy of Austen-inspired Novel: Karen Wasylowski

Item: A signed copy of Darcy and Fitzwilliam by Karen Wasylowski 

Details: The story of Darcy and Fitzwilliam is of two men who have been life long friends, competitors, relatives.  They share little in common.  Darcy is elegant, fabulously handsome and meticulous in manner and dress.  The other one – well, Colonel Fitzwilliam is a rogue.  Rough looking, brawny and possessing enough charm and love of life to sustain him through the years of England’s war with France.

Married life is bliss. At least that is what Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam’s cousin Fitzwilliam Darcy would have him believe. But Richard has no intention of stepping into the parson’s mousetrap until he encounters American widow Amanda Penrod at one of London’s innumerous balls. Instantly smitten, Richard suddenly finds himself behaving as foolishly as Mr. Darcy did when he was courting Elizabeth Bennet. While Richard is busy struggling to navigate the unfamiliar seas of romance with Amanda, an unexpected storm in the person of Caroline Bingley threatens to stir up the formerly placid matrimonial waters of the Darcy household. While staying true to the spirit of the immortal Jane, Wasylowski does bringsome subtle changes of her own into Pride and Prejudice (including giving one of literature’s great harridans, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, a kinder, gentler personality), and her deftly written tale of family, friendship, and marriage should please most Regency readers.
