Degrees of Affection
Degrees of Affection rated it 5 years ago
I'm not going to go in depth on Aidan's writing, the purpose, etc. as these were covered in my review of the first book in the series, An Assembly Such As This. Duty and Desire is far more ambitious; it details Darcy's life from Christmas until right before he travels to Rosings. This is lost time...

Hmm. Well.That was...interesting.This covers the part of P&P in which Darcy is not seen at all. So it makes sense that Elizabeth would not be seen but that doesn't entirely account for the rather weird book that this is. The author got to take some a lot of liberties with this one.

This covers the time in P & P when Darcy is absent from Elizabeth's sphere. Aidan uses it to good effect, allowing Darcy to be seen in his own right as brother to Georgiana, a caring relative to his Fitzwilliam/ Matlock relations, master of Pemberley and man trying to decide between his desires for ...
The Moth Eaten Shelf

I believe this is the volume that completely diverts from the original story line, but which seems wholly plausible given that the original story doesn't even touch upon what Darcy was doing for part of the year; which is why I enjoy it the best out of all the three. Despite the fact that I know how...
