"From an early age I have always been fascinated by the written word and the mood and atmosphere it creates for a reader; especially those books that affect me and transport me to some far-off place. These are the elements I strive to create in my books. My books in many ways record what most affects me: my feelings and experiences with family, friends, and those I have run into on my life's journey. My hope is that in my books you will find something that touches you, something which will resonate in your soul and remind you that you are strong and can overcome anything, especially if you have the support of loving friends and family." - Ayr Bray

Author Ayr Bray has written a humorous and entertaining novel in her novel Pemberley: cowardly Witness. Filled with charming characters from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, this story continues the tale of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy, as well as fun and new characters as well. Full of adventure and romance, this story will keep readers wondering who can be trusted and what will happen next. I would recommend this novel to lovers of Jane Austen’s literature, as well as regency novels.
