Firstly, I have to praise Ms. Monette for two things: the amount of historical research that's obviously gone into this book, and then for even thinking of setting a P&P variation during WWI in the first place.

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".

I rarely leave reviews, but, I loved this so much that I book the eBook and paperback versions. I love ebooks, but, you just can't beat holding a paperback. I was a huge fan of the author's previous book so I pre ordered Darcy's Hope and so glad I did. I read it in three days

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

Sorry to start with a tiny spoiler but our couple finish this book happy but surrounded by a lot of dangers, treason and unknown. However, I will start with a bit of their story in this book before the happy ending. In Beauty from Ashes, Darcy is a Captain and together with his company take the dowager house at Longbourn state. Due to a lot of different events, including Mr. Wickham’s story, Elizabeth abhors Captain Darcy, her dislike of him is, I would say, even greater than in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. When she faces him professing his love for her together with some “unkind” words about her family, she is not to say the least pleased with him. After some tragedy in the Bennet family, Jane and Elizabeth are going to work as VADs, Voluntary Aid Detachment. Although Jane’s luck changes and she reunites with the man she loves, Bingley. In the meantime, Elizabeth goes to France to help in a hospital and she finds Wickham there who is as charming as usual and encourages her to go and be the personal nurse/assistant to an old Frenchman in a converted hospital for the British soldiers fighting only miles away in the front. For some reasons that I will not reveal here, Captain Darcy is sent to the same place and we could say that there is not a happy surprise or a warming welcome when they meet again. Elizabeth is still against him and he tries to distance himself from anyone. During this time, ups and downs between our two protagonists happen but not only on their relationships but with other characters too. They are together for a few months and there is a bit of a change from Elizabeth’s side but then they are separated as Darcy has to follow orders, do not forget he is a soldier.

There is danger, friendship, understanding, intrigue, treason and hope.
