Travels in August: Mr. Darcy’s Parisian Adventure, Part 1 — 9 Comments

  1. Thank you for sharing this. I wonder about Elizabeth’s reaction when she finds out. Darcy had better be careful. What a time to end up in Paris. Looking forward to tomorrow’s post to find out what happens.

  2. I was so delighted with this little snippet that I am going to order the book. It should be amazing. It will be fun to see how Darcy gets those letters back.

  3. This excerpt was deliciously intriguing, so now I’m going to have to locate the original book so that I can enjoy the entire adventure.

    As this post is labeled “Part 1,” will you be posting two parts here, or will there be more?

    Thank you for posting this for us; I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

    • And This Our Life is only available as an ebook now…it was purchased by Sourcebooks in 2009 but they wanted a complete rewrite, and this vignette had to be significantly cut to fit the new viewpoint, so this episode is in “Mr. Darcy’s Little Sister”, the second version, but is much shorter. The vignette posted here has been significantly shortened from the original, as well, so that it would work as a blog post…there are many more details in the original!

      • Sorry, Susanne, my phone is behaving badly and I’m in a hotel…that comment was in answer to another readers question!! To answer your question, there are three parts to this series, August 24, 25 and the finale is on August 29. I’m glad you’re enjoying it!!

        • Thank you for your response.

          Yes, I am definitely enjoying this story, having just read Thursday’s post. I’m now on tenterhooks, waiting for Monday’s third and final post! 🙂

          Thanks for letting me know about where the original tale is published. I read mostly e-books, so I will look into And This Is Our Life to find the story in its entirety. Thank you!

          P.S. Have you thought about publishing it on your own as a stand-alone, in an expanded form? It can just be a short story for 99 cents on Kindle–I think it would be brilliant as a stand-alone story! Just a thought… 😉

  4. I am just catching up with some unread…well many unread e-mails and found this. I hope I can find the second one also. I know Elizabeth will not be please to learn of this. Thanks for sharing.
