The Darcys & the Bingleys: A Tale of Two Gentlemen’s Marriages to Two Most Devoted Sisters
Firstly, I must apologise for not having blogged in a while. However, this is due to a new addition to my life- my Kindle! I have been ferociously reading and the first book I have completed reading is The Darcys and the Bingleys by Marsha Altman. I downloaded this eBook for free from Amazon on Jane Austen’s birthday and have only put off reading it due to not having my eReader when planned. It’s available free on Google Books. It was truly a joy to read this 400 page odd sequel.
I recently stumbled across a new blog that completely piqued my interest. It is called ‘Seeking Mr Darcy’. One girl, Lisa, aka Fairy Godmother, had set up this site to find a “Mr Darcy” for her best friend whose alias, fittingly, is “Elizabeth Bennet”. In what appears to be a labour of love, Lisa had set out to find the right man for her friend.
The idea just struck me as way too cute to pass up (what a sweet thing to do for your friend!), and Pride and Prejudice is about nothing if not friendship afterall! So, I decided to send our matchmaker a line and see just what provoked the blog and why she chose our favourite literary couple to find her friend a man!
