Synopsis: Have you ever wondered what Mr. Darcy was really thinking? Find out his secrets in this captivating novel of love, pride, passion, and, of course, prejudice. Mr. Darcy’s intimate diary reveals his entanglements with women, his dangerous friendship with Lord Byron, his daily life in Georgian London, his mercurial mood swings calmed only by fisticuffs at Jackson’s—and, most importantly, his vain struggle to conquer his longing for Elizabeth Bennet.
Why I Wanted to Read It: I've enjoyed other takes on P&P from Darcy's point of view and I was intrigued by this take on placing the novel in a more solid time and place with the introduction of a friendship with Lord Byron. Plus, I love Lord Byron.
