A Treasured Tour of Pemberley

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

Remember when Elizabeth and the Gardiners tour Pemberley in Pride and Prejudice? Wouldn’t it have been lovely to embark on such a tour with them? To experience firsthand the extensive and beauteous grounds and walk near the fine picturesque woods…it would really be something…wouldn’t it? Well, to the delight of us many Pemberley-lovers the opportunity for a virtual tour of Pemberley now exists! Thanks to J.B. Grantham, readers can enjoy the splendors and graceful serenity of Pemberley through the words of its master, Fitzwilliam Darcy. Enhancing Mr. Darcy’s guided tour are the captivating and exquisite watercolors and drawings done by the talented hands of Mr. Darcy’s wife and sister.  

The “natural beauty” of the famed Pemberley estate is fully displayed in this guide. Divided into several chapters, this guide displays Pemberley’s approach from the north, its South Front, and through its gardens and waterways. It is difficult to decide what I loved most: the eloquently expressed history about the estate, the enchanting watercolors displayed on each page, or the understated and elegant format of this charming guide. It was fascinating to learn about the interesting elements of this great estate – the inspired Italian architecture, the statues of Roman gods, and the pond where Mr. Darcy enjoys swimming. This guide displays the loving devotion and cherished guardianship each member of the Darcy family has for Pemberley and its environs. I am so thankful they took us on this special and remarkable tour. I can only hope that one day they might decide to open the doors of Pemberley and take readers on a virtual tour of Pemberley’s interior and all the treasures housed inside!

Since I felt Mr. Darcy’s Guide to Pemberley is just too lovely to describe with mere words, I’ve made a short video preview. I hope you enjoy!

    The illustrations are the quintessential back drop for the beautifully written description of Pemberley. You can feel the breeze in the garden and smell the the flowers. It just needs the music to play in the background for the full effect!!

    Meredith, Thank you for sharing. The video was a perfect way to entice this adoring fan.

    This is indeed a book to treasure. I know I will mine! Your video was just lovely Meredith but even so, anything on a screen simply doesn’t do the book justice. The only word I can think to describe it is…..sumptuous. From the cover, to the gorgeous pictures and even the feel of the paper, it makes for one glorious package. Anyone who’s hesitating, don’t!

    Beautiful book. Thank you so much for doing that lovely video.
