A Whimsical Sojourn to Wonderland with Mr. Darcy!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

While out for a walk, Mr. Darcy and his youngest daughter Alice espy a white rabbit crossing their path. Having seen this particular white rabbit (with a pocket watch and waistcoat) before, Alice runs after Mr. Rabbit and follows him down a rather large rabbit hole. What could Mr. Darcy – master of Pemberley, devoted husband, and father of six – do but follow his daughter and ensure her safety?!? Down the rabbit hole they go and what befalls them is a succession of nonsensical and inexplicable events like Fitzwilliam Darcy has never seen.

Hi readers!  I am so happy to welcome back Alexa Adams to Austenesque Reviews today!  Alexa is not only one of my favorite Austenesque authors but one of my first blog friends! 🙂 Alexa has created some wonderful Austenesque stories (my personal favorite is The Madness of Mr. Darcy) and I’m really excited about her newest release, Darcy in Wonderland!  Alexa is sharing a great post about some of her characters in this clever Pride and Prejudice sequel, we hope you enjoy!

Where did July go?!?  I swear it lasted only 4 seconds!  Or at least, it felt that way.  We had a very eventful month here in the Bingley house!

For the first two weeks of the month we had a lovely family member from Colombia stay with us.  Jairo is married to one of Mr. Bingley’s cousins and wanted to spend some of his vacation days with us, and we were very happy to have him as our guest.  We enjoyed his company and felt like we all grew closer together during his visit! <3

We had a blast taking to Jairo to all our favorite restaurants, to the beach, and sharing with him the fun things we like to do around our town. Continue reading »
