Great Review for Searching for Pemberley from The Long and Short of It

An amazingly unique and engrossing tale of three love stories that spans two wars, two continents, and three couples. Searching for Pemberley begins with an American woman searching for the roots of her favorite novel and discovers so much more along the way. An historic and imaginative romance for all times.

On a whim, Maggie Joyce travels with a friend to see Montclair, an old manor house outside of London in post World War II England. Little did she know she’d stumble upon the inspiration for Jane Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice. Intrigued, she decides to investigate more and winds up in the middle of two love stories she never imagined...

Having never read Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, I was worried that I would be lost at best and bored at worst. However, Ms. Simonsen not only weaves a beautiful love story but also very craftily explains the ins and outs of Jane Austen’s novel so well that even someone who hasn’t read it will understand and enjoy the novel. Searching for Pemberley is without a doubt a must read for any fan of Pride and Prejudice or simply a fan of people finding one another, beating the odds, and falling in love.
