Now Darcy and Elizabeth are returning to Hertfordshire for their wedding and Elizabeth worries there is still one trial to be faced - Mrs. Bennet. Her mother refuses to prepare the simple, elegant affair the couple wishes for their wedding day. Will it be the day of their dreams or a disaster?

However the wedding turns out, Darcy and Elizabeth are excited to begin their life together. The bright future before them fills their hearts with joy. Both know they will face periods of contentment and heartache, but united they will confront whatever comes their way. Will those they have previously encountered allow them to enjoy their happiness or will there be more misfortune for them to overcome?

Far too long and wanders away from Darcy and Elizabeth

I enjoyed the first two books in this series, but only about a third of this last book is about Darcy and Elizabeth. Their part of the story is good, but they're married in chapter 7 (out of 31)! The other 2 thirds are more like a super-long epilogue and completely failed to hold my interest. I do like to know what happens to other characters, but they shouldn't take up most of the book!

Wonderful storytelling

I have read and listened to many books on the continuing story of Elizabeth & Darcy. This is by far my favorite. Starting with the first to the third book it tells us in great detail the love & many hurdles the couple and their family and friends must endure. I love learning about the lifestyle, their homes and dress of the time period. I also so enjoyed listening to Nancy Peterson and will now seek out other books she has narrated for further listening enjoyment. Thank you Linda for capturing the essence of one of the most famous and loved couples ever conceived.

The Laughter of Love


The Laughter of Love: Her Unforgettable Laugh, Book 3
: Linda Thompson


The final book in this series brings all our familiar characters back with more scheming, conniving, and even some redemption. There was plenty of adventure and romance and suspense too. It was a fun listen.


The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed by Nancy Peterson.

The book was tolerable, but they cried to much!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Laughter of Love to be better than the print version?

I only listened to the audio book and I have enjoyed all three books. The eyes of all the women were continually "brimming with tears, glistening with tears and otherwise filling with tears" and it became distracting and somewhat humorous after three books.

Any additional comments?

Although the crying, glistening, and tearing eyes was distracting I enjoyed the series.

Well worth the read of book 3

What did you love best about The Laughter of Love?

Book 3 answers everything. It i s worth the time to listen as to what happens to Elizabeth and Darcy.

Have you listened to any of Nancy Peterson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes in book 2/ No comparison she is as good in this book as in the last one.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Caroline made me sad. You will have to listen to see what happens to her.
