This is the unrevised first edition of Conviction. A newer version is available from Double Edge Press.
Conviction, a satirical, original sequel to Jane Austen's timeless classic Pride and Prejudice, reveals the romantic destiny of Georgiana Darcy. Yet the author does not rest on the laurels of Austen; she introduces an entirely new cast of characters, including an ambitious soldier, a wistful vicar, a flirtatious abolitionist, and an ordinary curate. The fates of these characters intertwine as each struggles to find the conviction to live out his or her own calling, while confronting issues of loyalty, courage, faith, and love. Conviction is not a novel merely for fans of Pride and Prejudice, but for all who take part in the ordinary struggles of humanity.

"This book is wonderful...The characters are rich (and believable for the Regency period) the plot is delightful and you'll find Georgiana Darcy to be a moving heroine." --POD-DY Mouth (girlondemand.blogspot.com/)
"While Ms. Burris disclaims being able to imitate Jane Austen's wonderful wit, I was surprised to discover that she possesses a very clever and cunning wit of her own." --Austenesque Reviews (janeaustenreviews.blogspot.com)
"Jacob Markwood could give Mr. Darcy a serious run for his money in the romantic lead department. . . This is a must read for any Jane Austen fan." --Sara Mills, Christian Fiction Review Newsletter
