From the Series Mr. Darcy
Mr. Darcy is a rather reserved and gentle duck, with all the qualities of an English aristocrat.
He likes to tip his hat and say “Good Morning” and he would never want to bother anybody.
He lives alone on the edge of Pemberley Park and keeps himself to himself. Unfortunately, his life is a little lonely.
One day, he receives an invitation from Lizzie and her sisters for tea but declines. He would never go to the ordinary park where they live. Over the next few days, certain events change Mr. Darcy and he realizes that it’s okay to let his friends know he needs some help and perhaps it’s rather nice to be loved after all.
A delightful introduction to some of Jane Austen’s most famous characters with stunning watercolors from award-winning illustrator Peter Carnavas.
