Darcy is an Army captain who mets Elizabeth when part of the Longbourn estate is requisitioned for the war effort. They may dance at the Netherfield Ball but the outcome is very similar to canon. Elizabeth desires to become a doctor and starts off her medical career by becoming a VAD nurse, along with her sister Jane. They end up in France and after a certain amount of "interference" by a well know character, Elizabeth, instead of being a VAD, has to become a private nurse to a French gentleman. He owns the chateau that eventually becomes a casualty clearing station known as "The Ritz". She meets up with Captain Darcy again, who is "officially" running the hospital but is actually undercover looking for a group helping enemy prisoners escape. As with canon, sparks fly almost every time they meet.
The horror that was the Battle of the Somme is well known to many. That part isn't glossed over but neither is it so graphic as to put people off reading the book. There's a lot of historical detail throughout the book, but not so much as to detract or distract from the story telling. Most of the familiar characters from canon crop up during the story but there's sadness in what has happened to some of Elizabeth's family. Miss Bingley, her brother, Jane Bennet and a certain Mr. W. all put in their appearances. We get a bit of a crossover with Emma and also with North and South for good measure.
One rather lovely extra Ms. Monette has provided for her readers is a link to "Lizzy's Scrapbook".Read more ›
I've read many Austen variations with varying interest (hated / liked / loved) but this is near the top my list of favorites. There's so many different elements - the war setting (similar to Downton Abbey), different takes on Darcy and Lizzy and guest appearances from characters from other books (including my third favorite hero from my third favorite novel John Thornton). Characters I'd love to read more about
I've already pre ordered part two and can't wait
There is danger, friendship, understanding, intrigue, treason and hope.Read more ›
