Today I’m not sharing a review but some of the best news a JAFF reader can have: there is another book on the market and the blurb is enticing and promising 🙂
Longbourn’s Songbird, published by Meryton Press, is the debut book of Beau North and it’s blog tour is being launched today!
I was very excited to read the description of the book because I have never read any Pride and Prejudice variation that takes place in the 50’s and in the USA, so I decided to share with you the blurb as well as the authors bio and the blog tour details so that you can follow it to know more about Longbourn’s Songbird.
I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did 🙂
“Someday some lark is gonna spell you with a song, Will Darcy. She’ll call you with music and you’ll be as good as lost.”
In the autumn of 1948, young millionaire Will Darcy comes to the sleepy, backwater town of Meryton, South Carolina to visit his best friend, Charles Bingley. When Darcy becomes enchanted by a local beauty with a heavenly voice, his business dealings with Longbourn Farms may close the door to his romantic hopes before they are given a chance to thrive.
Still healing from heartbreak, Elizabeth Bennet takes solace in her family, home, and the tight-knit community of Meryton. That foundation is shaken when Will Darcy makes a successful offer to buy the family farm. Blinded by hurt, will Elizabeth miss the chance to find in him the peace and comfort her heart truly needs?
Confronting the racial, economic, and social inequalities of the times, Longbourn’s Songbird is an imaginative romance inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice and told through the lens of post-WWII America, a story layered with betrayal and loss, love and letting go.
Beau North is a native southerner who now calls Portland, Oregon home with her husband and two cats. She attended the University of South Carolina where she began a lifelong obsession with English Literature. In her spare time, Beau is the brains behind Rhymes With Nerdy, an internet collective focused on pop culture. This is her first novel.
