Fast forward 15 years, readers will be shocked to find out (early on) in the latest novel that Bridget is now a widow, looking after two little Darcys.

Of course, it’s sad that Bridget Jones is now a widow but as a fictional character I’m excited how she’ll be living her life after time and the world has moved on since The Edge of Reason especially as Mark Darcey will play a different role in her life.

One Thought on “News: I Wasn’t Too Excited About The New Bridget Jones Until…

    But you are right that it will now be interesting to see how Bridget handles this new chapter in her life.
