Imagine Being Mysteriously Transplanted Into Your Favorite Story!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

Modern-day wife and mother Alison Bateman is an ardent fan of Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice, and similar to that book’s matriarch, she has five daughters (and yes, they all have the same names, but that began more coincidentally than intentionally). However, unlike Mrs. Bennet, Alison Bateman is sensible, calm, and loves all her daughters equally. Unexpectedly, Alison finds herself transplanted into the pages of Pride and Prejudice, but instead of having a chance to be the heroine of the tale and fall in love with Mr. Darcy, Alison instead becomes the heroine’s mother and finds herself in the role of the noisy, small-minded nerve-obsessed Mrs. Bennet.

While out for a walk, Mr. Darcy and his youngest daughter Alice espy a white rabbit crossing their path.

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!

Thanks so much for hosting me today, Meredith! It’s always a pleasure to visit your blog – one of the very first JAFF blogs I discovered way back in the day.

My newest book, Darcy in Wonderland, is a pure mashup. Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is encapsulated within a traditional Pride and Prejudice sequel, set many years after the Darcys married, sometime in the Victorian Era. All are thriving at Pemberley, and I thought I’d take the time today to introduce you to Elizabeth and Darcy’s brood, the inspiration for whom largely derives from the Bennet family of Longbourn.
