This book is a Pride and Prejudice story that continues after the marriage of Elizabeth and Darcy. SPOILER ALERT: Shy Georgiana Darcy is now grown up and becomes romantically involved with two men. The first is a Major Talbot who is able to bring Georgiana out of her shyness and after a short acquaintance they get engaged. Unfortunately, he goes off to war against Napoleon leaving Georgiana back home. Their correspondence is erratic and stilted. I seems to me, the Major would rather be a soldier than the gentleman land owner Georgiana needs as a husband. Meanwhile back in England, Darcy (Georgiana's brother) hires a new vicar, Mr. Markwood, for their local perish. Everyone, including the bishop, can see that Mr. Markwood is truly a deeply religious man. I love the scene where the vicar helps Darcy when Elizabeth gets very sick. The vicar is a first son of a knight, but his father disowned him not because he went into religious studies instead of the politics, but because he broke off a previous engagement to the daughter of a wealthy man who was to help the abolitionist's cause. The vicar's father and younger brother are both abolitionists. Mr. Markwood loved this young lady, but the young lady loved someone else so he broke the engagement and refused to talk about it to his father. So, we see that Mr. Markwood is a very honourable man. Georgiana goes to the vicar, at first, to get information about her fiancée who is a school chum of the major, but soon she becomes involved in the vicar's life. Low and behold, the vicar and Georgiana fall deeply in love, but neither want to admit it because Georgiana is engaged to another man. The angst between Georgiana and the vicar is palpable.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Loved this book, it is mainly about the growing up of Georgiana Darcy after the marriage of her brother to Elizabeth Bennet. It has many of the older loved characters from Pride and Prejudice but also some very good new ones. You could almost feel the pressure Georgiana was under when a young politican comes calling on her, he is so obnoxious but polite Georgiana puts up with him. You can see though this book how close Elizabeth and Georgiana become, as on many occasion Elizabeth sits with her whilst her unwelcome callers are there. Jane Elizabeth's sister has a young son and towards the end of the book Elizabeth and Darcy have a daughter.
Life is not easy for Georgiana as she becomes engaged to the wrong man but eventually all falls into place and she marries the man she loves.
I have read a few other books which have been dedicated to the growing up of Georgiana and found this to be one of the better ones. I can recommend this book to all Jane Austen sequel fans as a must.

As a devoted Jane Austen fan, I have read dozens of sequels to her novels, and unfortunately, most fall far short. Not so with Conviction, the story of Georgiana Darcy's growth and love for vicar Jacob Markwood. Because he is a vicar, there is quite a bit of Christian theology in the book. While this may not be to everyone's tastes, as a hero, Markwood's idealism can melt hearts as much as Mr. Darcy himself.
Inasmuch as Conviction is a sequel to Pride and Prejudice, I also view it as a parallel or mirror image to Jane Austen's Persuasion. Just as Anne Elliot relinquishes Wentworth at the persuasion of another, Georgiana struggles with herself as she chooses the man amongst her many admirers whom she loves with conviction.
