Light and Shadow at Pemberley

Please join me in congratulating Lee Elliott on the publication of Light and Shadow at Pemberley: A Sequel to Pride and Prejudice! I had the pleasure of helping Lee design the cover. Here's the book description:

Pride and Prejudice concludes with two weddings and the expectation of perfect felicity, but it’s far from the end of the story…

The following summer is blissfully happy for Darcy and Elizabeth, who have retreated from London society to enjoy time alone at Pemberley during the early months of their marriage. As they are making preparations for an autumn journey to Scotland, word comes that Lady Catherine has fallen ill, and the Darcys hasten to Rosings.  

After Anne de Bourgh’s hopes of marrying Darcy are shattered, her mother, Lady Catherine, is furious, and Anne is set thoroughly on the shelf. But her mother’s illness allows Anne to finally escape her oppressive rule. As her cousin Colonel Fitzwilliam is the first to discover, Anne is a much more interesting and tenacious young lady than her family had ever imagined. When she travels to the Scottish Highlands with Darcy and Elizabeth, Anne’s transformation begins, but does she have the courage to fight for love and freedom?

At Pemberley, Darcy’s friend John Grey is cataloging the library, enjoying a respite from a life of adventure. Grey is a scientist, explorer, and the son of an infamous nobleman. He falls in love with Lady Margaret, a neighbor of the Darcys. The two young people seem perfectly suited to each other, but will a tragic secret keep them apart?

As friends gather at Pemberley, shadows begin to threaten the luminous harmony of the great house. Darcy and Elizabeth’s happiness is compromised by something unspoken, a reticence that could have devastating consequences. Misunderstandings arise between Anne and the man she loves. John Grey and Lady Margaret seem destined to be separated forever. Can the shadows be vanquished and the light of Pemberley restored?

Light and Shadow at Pemberley is available in ebook and print editions on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Lee's website for more information on her books!
