    Delightful, window of time, the best time for Pemberley: This is a short, short story that can be read in thirty minutes. It is a window of time in the life of our dear couple. Darcy and Elizabeth have been married several years and are expecting the birth of their first child. Oh my goodness! The sweet, sweet repartee between this couple is what makes the world turn for JAFF fanatics. We can’t help it. We hang on every work, nuance and sigh. What is it about this couple? Elizabeth goes into labo Delightful, window of time, the best time for Pemberley: This is a short, short story that can be read in thirty minutes. It is a window of time in the life of our dear couple. Darcy and Elizabeth have been married several years and are expecting the birth of their first child. Oh my goodness! The sweet, sweet repartee between this couple is what makes the world turn for JAFF fanatics. We can’t help it. We hang on every work, nuance and sigh. What is it about this couple? Elizabeth goes into labor and we walk the floors and corridors of Pemberley with Darcy as he experiences the various levels of Hell until he can find out what is going on with his dear Elizabeth. We find her calmly trying to reassure him of his fears. After all, she is a Bennet and her mother had five babies. She doesn’t tell him, but she thinks to herself that she is built similar to her mother. She certainly didn’t want to tell him that. The angst is real. Darcy lost his mother after childbirth complications with Georgiana and he is terrified that he will lose his reason for living. As a maid rushes out of the chamber, Darcy hears the sound every father desires more than life itself…Elizabeth’s laugh and a wee baby’s cry. Oh, what a delightful scene. This was a free offer through Amazon and is an honest review. If I didn’t like it, I would say so. However, I loved it.

    This is a nice story, if a bit familiar. I have read quite a few full length JAFF novels that included similar scenes. Darcy's anxiety is understandable, considering his mother's difficulty with childbirth and the realities of that era, when the mortality rate was so high for both the child and the mother. Elizabeth feels the same. Both do their best to shield their concerns from the other. This works well as a self contained short story.

    Lovely, sweet story of the day Darcy and Elizabeth become parents. Darcy is nervous, Elizabeth is apprehensive, but both find ways to cope. A very short story, but one I can highly recommend.

    Yes, this was a free offer on Amazon and a very easy, quick read with nothing out of the ordinary as far as what you would expect in reading about the birth of Darcy’s and Elizabeth’s first child. On one hand Darcy’s mother had not only rare pregnancies in most stories but also suffered with and died from complications resulting from Georgiana’s birth and delivery. While on Elizabeth’s side we have Mrs. Bennet with five healthy daughters and no ensuing problems following those births. Our loving Yes, this was a free offer on Amazon and a very easy, quick read with nothing out of the ordinary as far as what you would expect in reading about the birth of Darcy’s and Elizabeth’s first child.

While on Elizabeth’s side we have Mrs. Bennet with five healthy daughters and no ensuing problems following those births. Our loving couple does try to comfort and reassure each other, as we would expect. Thus we read mostly of Darcy’s pacing, his thoughts and his worries about Elizabeth and what is going on out of his sight. But you do know that there will be a happy conclusion no matter how long the travail.

    Cute lil trinket This is a very short and sweet story by Jane Grix. We see into Darcy's head as he awaits he arrival of his first child. Elizabeth does her best to maintain a calm facade so hat Darcy does not detect the range of emotions winding through her. I wish that Ms Grix would have made it longer. She did mention in her newsletter that she is working on something longer. I always look forward to Ms Grix's work. Cute lil trinket This is a very short and sweet story by Jane Grix.

    Nice story of the birthday of the heir of Pemberley. It looks like a long scene but it is tender and shows a lot of love between our protagonists.

    This is a snippet of time in the lives of Mr. and Mrs. Darcy. The birth of their first child gives a glimpse of the difficulties of childbirth. It also has each of them reflecting on the past.

    An Heir for Pemberley: A Pride and Prejudice Variation Short Story Sweet and short story as promised. Darcy and Elizabeth are alone at Pemberley since Georgiana had married. Anne de Bourgh had died, and Elizabeth tried to get Lady Catherine to visit Pemberley, but she was lost in grief. Darcy and Elizabeth had been married for three years before she became pregnant.

Anne de Bourgh had died, and Elizabeth tried to get Lady Catherine to visit Pemberley, but she was lost in grief. Darcy and Elizabeth had been married for three years before she became pregnant. Elizabeth was beginning to think she was barren, but finally her day to welcome their first child was near. Her mother tells her to let him in her bed more often, not realizing that they slept together and it was not from the lack of trying. Her mother because Jane and Bingley were on their second, Charlotte had two, and even Lydia had two. Poor Darcy. Rushed from the room by the midwife, Darcy tried to something to keep his mind from worry, by praying in the Pemberley's Chapel. In the hallway, when Elizabeth lets out a blood curdling scream, he rushes into their room to see his child born. Pushed out of the room again, it took several hours before everything was cleaned up. When he saw both his wife and son were alive and healthy, he sat next to Elizabeth on the bed. The heir was here and his father smiled at his son whom they named, Bennet Andrew, after his grandfathers.

    This was a nice quick read, but it didn't feel like an actual short story. It was more like a scene from a larger work, which means that we lost the context that more time with the characters would have brought, and we gained only the shorter read time. There was no conflict--only introspection. Well written, but I would have felt cheated if it hadn't been free. This was a nice quick read, but it didn't feel like an actual short story.

    Jane Grix’s An Heir for Pemberley is a charming short-story sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Set three years after Elizabeth and Darcy’s wedding, the couple await the imminent birth of their first child. Elizabeth is in labor, and she and Darcy spend their last moments together before the midwife’s arrival in a slow walk around the garden, enjoying some playful banter despite their nerves.

Set three years after Elizabeth and Darcy’s wedding, the couple await the imminent birth of their first child. Elizabeth is in labor, and she and Darcy spend their last moments together before the midwife’s arrival in a slow walk around the garden, enjoying some playful banter despite their nerves. This is a sweet story, with Darcy playing the role of the devoted and anxious father and Elizabeth contemplating their happiness in marriage. Darcy thinks about how Elizabeth changed him for the better, and Elizabeth thinks about how she’s glad they didn’t have a child right away so they could get to know each other better first. An Heir for Pemberley is the perfect story to read with a cup of tea or when you only have a few moments to slip into a book. Grix gives Pride and Prejudice fans a glimpse of Darcy and Elizabeth’s marital bliss as they prepare to embark on their next adventure. This was my first time reading Grix’s work, but it definitely won’t be the last! Review posted on Diary of an Eccentric

Elizabeth is pregnant and her time is near, and Darcy is consumed with fear that he will lose her as he lost his own mother. When her time comes, we wait with Darcy alone with his worries. I love everything Darcy and Elizabeth, and this little glimpse of their future was sweet. The story is told mainly through Darcy's thoughts and occasionally Elizabeth's. Darcy has grown more lighthearted and visibly demonstrative of his love, and Elizabeth has matured while still keeping her playfulness. Throughout the short story Darcy recalls little tidbits and anecdotes about the other characters like Jane and Charles, Charlotte, Mrs. Bennett, and Anne and Lady Catherine. It felt very natural in the story and didn't seem shoehorned in, and Mrs. Bennet's made me laugh out loud. I did have to do a double take (double read?) at the description of Darcy's mother's death, that graphic bit seemed unnecessary and out of place in such a sweet story, but I suppose it was there to emphasize the danger to pregnant women in that time period.

    This little ditty could be summed up with "Lizzy has a baby. Darcy frets." That is the whole story. Felt more like a chapter of a larger story. The writing was fine but there just wasn't much to it. Some innuendo. No language or violence. This little ditty could be summed up with "Lizzy has a baby. Darcy frets." That is the whole story.

    A little too quick and without much plot. I would have loved to get more of their relationship and perhaps how they adjusted to their new circumstances. The writing was very good, so I just wanted more of it.

    Satisfying I like this short story. The tone and language were almost the same as Austen's. There was a modern touch to the language as the expressions were not long winded. I felt like I was in the same world as Pride and Prejudice. I like the ending. Satisfying I like this short story. The tone and language were almost the same as Austen's.

    Short and sweet I've been reading about pemberly, Elizabeth, Darcy, and Georgiana. This is a sweet additional bit of a story. Just a bit of detail filler.

    Quite good! Considering that this is basically fan fiction, it’s very cute and fluffy, but it’s also quite well researched. Worth a read, at least once.
