Sharon Lathan is a native Californian recently transplanted from the sunny San Joaquin Valley to the fertile hills of western Kentucky. Living life in rural heaven with a retired husband, Sharon has set aside her thirty-year career as an NICU nurse to focus on writing full-time. Oh joy!
Sharon’s passion for Pride and Prejudice and then all things Jane began in 2005 upon seeing the movie version starring Kiera Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen. The burning desire to know what happened next sent her on a quest through online fanfiction and then ultimately into writing the story herself when she never found a sequel precisely matching her happily-ever-after vision. Now she has seven complete novels, a novella, and no intention to stop spinning the Darcy Saga!
Sharon’s Novels ~
George Darcy is the second son of a wealthy landowner in Georgian Era England. At 22 he is one of the youngest medical doctorate graduates of Cambridge University and admitted licentiate from the London Royal College of Physicians, and thus considered a brilliant, rising star in England’s field of medicine. Yet Dr. Darcy refuses the easy, comfortable pathway and enlists as a physician with the British East India Company, embarking on a personal quest to broaden his education and practice his craft without the restraints imposed by British society.
The Passions of Dr. Darcy spans over thirty years in the life of this incredible, eccentric man. Using vivid descriptions of the culture and atmosphere, the story traces his early steps as a new doctor in a strange land on to his eventual return to England and his childhood home decades later. This is a story of India and the people as well as of the diseases and medical care available. Primarily, however, this is the story of one man who strived to change the face of medicine while yearning to fill the void left within his soul upon the death of his identical twin when they were 12. His search for family, enduring love, and lost companionship is a quest not wholly realized until returning to England and Pemberley. There a new generation of family and friends will heal the physician, and to his greatest surprise, the true love of his life awaits.
