As the author stated in her acknowledgements this book did not follow canon, apart from the unlikeable Darcy, there were changes to Anne de Bourgh who was not so sickly & undertook lessons such as painting from her "governess" Mrs Jenkinson (no longer a companion). Also, Anne was receptive to Elizabeth's offers of friendship & attempted to defend her to an angry Lady Catherine. Mr Collins however was unchanged & fortunately only made a cameo appearance from the pulpit. This was not an overly uplifting book & if you're expecting a pleasant Christmas tale of love & family unity then disappointment awaits. However, if you want to be challenged by non-canon P&P then this may be of value to you. I will be re-reading this book to see if I can understand & appreciate the version of Darcy it presented. I did enjoy disliking Lady Catherine & looked forward to/hoped for her to get her comeuppance (the role of the villian of any piece of fiction).
There were a few spelling errors in the book & misconceptions about some lifestyle aspects in Regency England (eg. a footman or butler attended the front door of the house & introduced visitors to the residents not a "doorman"). It was a quick read, even more so as it only occupied 80% of the printed book with the remainder being a free sample of another author's work, acknowledgements, etc. I read the Kindle Unlimited version of this book & am unlikely to buy a permanent copy.
One cannot bare the old bat? Hello!
First of all, I can't see her as motherly, she's too far from Pemberley? Cough. I doubt she would leave Anne by herself, although she does just that in the story.
Fitzwilliam was too far away and involved in his studies. Where is Georgiana anyway? He looked after her because she was so young. Lady Catherine, Mother, more like Smother.
Anne had never been to Pemberley. From the original story, Darcy went against Lady Catherine to marry Elizabeth.
He cannot be so dimwitted as to agree with Lady Catherine 's insults if he truly loved Lizzy. Gah. He would be silent, not insulting at the very least.
I am trying to see things that way, but, it is just too farfetched to be realistic.
Usually, Elizabeth is the one extending the olive branch. Darcy would not jump if Lady Catherine says jump. How high?
Nice idea but not feasible. Elizabeth is too strong willed. If they go at all it would be her idea not his. I can see Darcy getting mad and leaving, but not agreeing with the old bat in the first place regarding Elizabeth. He is too strong willed, no matter how shy he is.
Plus, the lack of accuracy for travelling that distance with no servants. There was lots of sex though. Odd. Not period correct, I'm afraid.
I don't buy it. If the story were to change slightly. Yes, this could happen without Darcy as a wimpy puppet.
