Publisher's Summary

A thrilling novel of malicious villains, dramatic revelations, and heroic gestures that stays true to Austen's style.
Shackled in the dungeon of a macabre castle with no recollection of her past, a young woman finds herself falling in love with her captor - the estate's master. Trusting him before she regains her memory and unravels the castle's wicked truths would be a catastrophe.
Far away at Pemberley, the Darcys happily gather to celebrate the marriage of Kitty Bennet. But a dark cloud sweeps through the festivities: Georgiana has disappeared without a trace. Upon receiving word of his sister's likely demise, Darcy and his wife, Elizabeth, set off across the English countryside, seeking answers in the unfamiliar and menacing Scottish moors.
How can Darcy keep his sister safe from the most sinister threat she has ever faced when he doesn't even know if she's alive? True to Austen's style and rife with malicious villains, dramatic revelations and heroic gestures, this suspense-packed mystery places Darcy and Elizabeth in the most harrowing situation they have ever faced finding Georgiana before it's too late.

Great story spoiled by poor narration

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, because of the story line. It is exciting and full of different characters.


What did you like best about this story?

Focusing more on Georgiana.


How could the performance have been better?

I was so disappointed by the performance. Ruth Urquhart's delivery was mostly flat and very little light and shade. Her Scottish accent was fine, but her interpretation of the males was harsh.

Her pronunciation of many words was poor (see additional comments for the list)


Do you think The Disappearance of Georgiana Darcy needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I am always happy to try Pride and Prejudice follow up books.


Any additional comments?

I feel most of the problem was down to the producer. There is a long list of mispronunciations that really jarred. Viscount is not pronounced Visscount, it is Veycount. Edward tells Georgiana that he is bless-ed to have her as his wife when it should have been bless'd, and the list goes on. Surely the actress and/or the producer should have noticed these. I spent time listening out for errors than enjoying the story (at times).

Previous Regina Jeffers books have been a delight, so can I suggest that you are more careful about choosing narrators to suit the book? Listen to those narrated by Phyillida Nash as an example of how to read a book not only accurately but also with artistry.
