    About Regina Jeffers


    1. Writing about passion comes easily to Regina Jeffers A master teacher for thirty seven years, she has passionately taught thousands of students English in the public schools of West Virginia, Ohio, and now in North Carolina Yet, teacher does not define her as a person Ask any of her students or her family, and they will tell you Regina is passionate about so many things her son, children in need, words, music, dance, the theatre, pro football, classic movies, the BBC, track and field, books, books, and books Holding multiple degrees, Regina often serves as a Language Arts or Media Literacy consultant to surrounding school districts and has served on state and national educational commissions A Time Warner Star Teacher and Crystal Apple Finalist, as well a Martha Holden Jennings Scholar, Jeffers is relatively new to the publishing realm although this is not her first piece of writing I have written all my life, she says, except it was not always in this format When I write now, I write as I used to choreograph routines for my dance teams I write the scene in my head like a movie Usually, it plays there for several days being tweaked and rewritten, but, eventually, I put it to paper Generally, it does not change much from there because I have completed several mental rewrites before the pen and papers are included The story of Fitzwilliam Darcy is one most women know It has fascinated me for years so while teaching Pride and Prejudice at school, a student challenged me to write this book His challenge became an obsession Whereas most female writers can relate to the strong, independent Elizabeth Bennet, my friends will tell you my voice comes out of Fitzwilliam Darcy s mouth Like Mr Darcy, I have by observation and by practice learned to say and do the proper thing, but I cannot say I ever knew what feelings were expected of me.

    1. Déjà vu: “The girl’s tolerable but not to my nature. I’m in no humor to pay attendance upon any women this evening, especially one who thinks herself some sort of female equal to the men she meets.” Does this not sound familiar? And then we read of this same Darius Fitzwilliam asking Eliza about her name being some form of Elizabeth only to have her get her back up and avow that she wants no connection to a certain queen. So near the onset of this story we see glimpses of our dearly be [...]

    2. Dear Reader,Put simply,I loved this book!!! If you're looking for a variation that's a little bit different,set in America after the Revolutionary Wars,that saw wagon loads of families traverse the potentially dangerous paths to the new frontier,in search of a better life,then this book is for you! I really admire this author and her ability to transfer us to this new world,filled with the dust of the trail,the heat of the midday sun, the unmistakable odour that wafts in the air -the heady scent [...]

    3. I thoroughly enjoyed this early Americana version of Pride and Prejudice. Other reviewers, particularly Sheila, have done a great job in hitting the major plot points without spilling any spoilers, so I'll just focus on the features in the story that struck me the most.First of all, I applaud Ms. Jeffers for giving her characters slightly different names from canon as a way of emphasizing that these people are similar but NOT the same. For example, it took me a little while to get used to Eliza [...]

    4. I just finished my favorite R Jeffers book to date! ❤️. It’s a wonderful story about America and the struggles on the frontier. The story was full of P&P and the colorful tales of E and D trying to figure each other out. The side characters were also an added bonus in this one. I love the struggle and I loved the angst and I loved the romance. This one was extra special for me. Happy Reading!

    5. American frontier crossing into their promised land: 4.5 starsWhat an interesting take on our beloved P&P characters. Jeffers warned readers up front that this was not canon, so take notice. I plowed into the story without thinking about what I was getting into and hit a roadblock. I am warning readers now to pay heed to what Jeffers told us. I was about 40% into the story and, as I said, hit a roadblock. That was not the fault of the author but rested with me. I stopped and took a break as [...]

    6. An American pride & prejudiceAbsolutely loved, loved this vagary! I wish there were more stars to rate this book, 5 is not enough!This story basically takes place around the same time period the only difference is that it's set in America in the south. It begins post revolution and our characters are setting out to settle in Kentucky. The wagon train consist of the Harris'(Bennets) and all of our fav characters just with different names. Mr (Col) Darius Fitzwilliam and Charles Bradford are l [...]

    7. Looks like I am going to be the turd in the punch bowl on this book. Many of my GR friends love it to pieces. But it didn't work for me at all.This is some of the plot of P&P shoehorned into a story about early American pioneers. Set in 1787 It features Darius Fitzwilliam (Darcy) a revolutionary War vet and son of a well to do merchant. We learn he is a distant cousin to the Earl of Matlock, his friend Charles Bradford (Bingley) also a vet, lost his hand in battle, the Harris family (Bennets [...]

    8. I loved this book! After I finished it and tried to think how I could put my reaction into words, I read Charlene's review and found she had summed it up very well. This variation is unique in so many ways. It is placed in post Revolution America, and portrays life on the trail wonderfully. Darius Fitzwilliam (yes, that family) personifies the new American of his time, with a strong sense of faith, honour, strength and loyalty. Eliza has to be the most stubborn, headstrong woman I have ever seen [...]
