To Teach the Admiring Multitude, the first installment in Eleanor Wilton’s The Derbyshire Chronicles, is a faithful continuation of Jane Austen’s beloved Pride and Prejudice. Some readers have described it as among “the best Jane Austen fan fiction” available. The story explores the early days of the marriage between Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennet as they navigate a skeptical society and the challenges of newly wed understanding.
In Volume Two of The Derbyshire Chronicles, Eleanor Wilton introduces Agnes Merriweather, an unforgettable Regency heroine whose character is marked by intelligence and a passionate resolve to live life to its fullest, regardless of the obstacles placed in her path. At twenty-three she finds herself living in a small village of Derbyshire. Clever, accomplished and penniless, she struggles to engage her lively mind and to quench her restless spirit, whilst fearing that her prospects for making a successful marriage have entirely vanished, to say nothing of her chances of finding love. But new friendships and the arrival of an enigmatic gentleman open her heart to unexpected possibilities as she learns to put aside her preconceptions about society, happiness, and herself.
