Darcy and AnneeBook
Fitzwilliam Darcy didn't necessarily dislike his cousin Anne de Bourgh, he just never desired to marry her. So when she turns up at Pemberley alone, of course he isn't going to send her back to her miserable life at Rosings. Her mother's pride and determination fo find Anne a husband threaten to overwhelm Anne's newfound freedom and budding sense of self.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that Lady Catherine will never find a husband for Anne?
When a fortuitous accident draws Anne away from Rosings and her overbearing mother's direct influence, she is able to think and act for herself for the first time ever. In the society of her cousins Darcy and Georgiana, and, of course, the lively Mrs. Darcy, Anne reveals a talent for writing and a zest for life.
Meanwhile, Lady Catherine is determined to choose a husband for Anne. But now that Anne has found her courage, she may not be so easy to rule.
Anne de Bourgh is a sympathetic character whose obedience and meekness were expected of women in her day. As she frees herself from these expectations, Anne discovers strength, independence, and even true love in a wonderfully satisfying coming-of-age story.
