Darcy's Voyage: A tale of uncharted love on the open seas

A Tale of Uncharted Love on the Open Seas

In this enchanting and highly original retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet sets out for the new world aboard the grand ship Pemberley's Promise. She's prepared for an uneventful voyage until a chance encounter with the handsome, taciturn Mr. Darcy turns her world upside down.

When Elizabeth falls ill, Darcy throws convention overboard in a plan that will bind them to each other more deeply than he ever could have imagined. But the perils of their ocean voyage pale in comparison to the harsh reality of society's rules that threaten their chance at happiness. When they return to the lavish halls of England, will their love survive?

What readers say:

"Kara Louise is an incredible storyteller."

"Such a sweet and romantic 'what if' scenario for Pride and Prejudice fans! A must have for your P&P library!"

"Romantic, creative, and witty."

In the beginning, when they're on the ship, I wasn't sure what I thought about the book. I wished the author had just made up her own characters rather than using Darcy and Elizabeth.

Oy. This book was decidedly no bueno. Alterna-P&P books are kind of my guilty pleasure, and this was was a) cheap on Amazon and b) had reasonable reviews, so I figure where's the harm? EVERYWHERE. That's where the harm was. EV. ERY. WHERE. The problems started for me by page 18, where Totally... ...more

From my book review blog Rundpinne.[return][return]In Darcy’s Voyage, Kara Louise retells the timeless classic Pride & Prejudice in her own manner, begging the questions of what if fate and time were added to the relationship of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth. While Darcy and Elizabeth meet in Engla... ...more

Darcy's Voyage was such a delightful story, that I just couldn't put it down. To me, this is one of the best Pride & Prejudice sequels/retellings that I have ever read. It is so different from the original and yet keeps the authenticity of the classic story that we know and love.

When Darcy an... ...more

Darcy's Voyage, originally published as Pemberley's Promise in 2007, is a phenomenal Pride and Prejudice variation in which Mr. Darcy's and Elizabeth Bennet's first meeting is altered. Instead of meeting in the Meryton Assembly room, Darcy becomes acquainted with Elizabeth on a ship bound for Ame... ...more
