Review: Mrs. Darcy and the Blue-Eyed Stranger Honestly, I don't really have much to say about these short stories. A couple were good, some decent, and others...well, I just found myself not really getting into the story or characters. I will definitely not be reading this book again.
Review: Mrs. Darcy and the Blue-Eyed Stranger Collection of short stories that really held my interest. Quirky Southern writer that can assume voices of various characters authentically.
Review: Mrs. Darcy and the Blue-Eyed Stranger I am not a fan of books of short stories. This book was an exception. Fourteen unique stories are compelling and allow you to relate to yourself or someone you know. Extremely well written and enjoyable.
