Book Arrival: Darcy's Story by Janet Aylmer

Darcy's Story (Pride and Prejudice told from a whole new perspective) by Janet Aylmer

I received this from Paperbackswap.

Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice has long stood among the most beloved novels of all time. The story of Elizabeth Bennet's blossoming romance with "haughty, reserved, and fastidious" Fitzwilliam Darcy has enchanted readers for nearly two centuries. Yet, Mr Darcy has always remained an intriguing enigma--his thoughts, feelings, and notivations hidden behind a cold, impenetrable exterior...until now.

With the utmost respect for Austen's original masterwork, author Janet Aylmer lovingly retells Pride and Prejudice from a bold new perspective: seeing events as they transpire through the eyes of Darcy himself. One of the world's great love stories takes on breathtaking new life, and one of fiction's greatest romantic heroes becomes even more sympathetic, compelling, attractive, and accessible, all through the imagination and artistry of a tryly gifted storyteller.
This was a recent Friday Find and I was thrilled to see that Paperbackswap had it. I now need to join the Everything Austen challenge since I seem to be interested in all these different tellings/additions to Pride and Prejudice.
