Distress & Determination, by James P. Wollack

What if you hadn’t chosen your future path, but then it was decided for you, and you didn’t feel ready?

Spring, 1835. After being sent down from Cambridge, 18-year-old Frederick Darcy struggles to develop confidence in himself; but an unexpected tragedy forces a new role upon him – he is to become the next Master of Pemberley! Frederick must learn how to manage a huge estate, cope with the unfortunate choices of wayward siblings, and even survive life-threatening challenges.

In Distress and Determination, Frederick struggles to prove himself and earn the trust and respect of his father, Fitzwilliam Darcy, as well as his mother, Elizabeth, and everyone else around him. Can he become a capable, respected Master, and ultimately a strong, confident man like his father?
