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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Conviction is not just a sequel to Pride and Prejudice, it is a stunning tapestry of human life. It is a story of love, passion, conflict, and, as the title suggests, conviction. Many new characters are introduced, all of them brought to life by the masterful pen of Burris. This is a story that everyone, whether a fan of Jane Austen or not, can enjoy. Please don't wait, buy this book today!
