Before you read this wonderful book, please be aware that it's a sequel to Darcy's Hope: Beauty from Ashes. While it can be read as a standalone book, I do recommend that you read the first volume beforehand, not just so that you understand some of the detail mentioned in the sequel, but also because it's one of the best JAFF books published in 2016! I'm going to try in this review of the sequel not to give away too many spoilers for the first book as well as for this one.

At the end of the first book, Darcy has seen Elizabeth set sail for England from France, sending her off to Pemberley. He hopes to join her in a couple of months, when he has some leave coming, so that they can get married. So far, so good, so simple. But then we wouldn't have much of a story if that's what actually happened, would we?

The First World War is still going on and suffice it to say that Wickham is suitably dastardly, and though we see very little of her, Caroline Bingley is as "well-meaning" as she almost always is and circumstances and the war conspire against Darcy and Elizabeth in getting to their HEA. Darcy is injured in battle and Elizabeth has to go on the run, but you'll have to read it for yourself to find out the details.

The level of historical detail Ms. Monette's put into this book is amazing and the result of many hours of research but it doesn't overwhelm the plot in any way. She's also very cleverly inserted characters from other Austen works into both books, too. As you may imagine from the title of this one, there's a connection to the Knightley family from Emma but we also meet some from Sense and Sensibility as well.

I highly recommend to read the first book "Darcy's Hope: Beauty from Ashes" even though this can be a stand alone book.

Elizabeth is in England, in Pemberley, waiting for her fiancé Captain Fitzwilliam Darcy. She is happy and excited, she loves Fitzwilliam and he loves her back, still and after everything that has happened. However, one morning, the always lovely Mrs. Reynolds bring Elizabeth the newspaper and a letter from a “dear friend”. Everything changes, Elizabeth has to flee Pemberley to protect the man she loves. She devises a plan and borrows some money that Darcy told her to use if needed. She is thinking about boarding a ship and going to America but before that takes place, she finds herself helping a doctor who is recovering from some wounds and she lives at Darcy House in London!! She is conscious of the risks but as she is planning to go abroad to work as a VAD, she believes that everything will work for the best. She is wrong! She follows her employer to Donwell Abbey where she encounters Darcy!! Nevertheless he cannot recognise her, he is, hopefully temporarily, blind and deaf (read the book to know why). Against her better judgement, she stays to take care of him until she is able to go to France or Egypt to work. In the meantime she is Juliet Thomas and she avoids being discovered but always taking care of him, her love.

We have a lot of different characters that participate to make this story intriguing but I will mention a couple: Aunt Eliza, she is more annoying than Lady Catherine de Bourgh; or John Thornton, Darcy’s batman who has a broken heart… This book includes appearances by Margaret Hale, Colonel Brandon, Marianne Dashwood, and descendants of George Knightley, a very nice idea I have to say.

After Elizabeth sailed away, Lizzy’s and Darcy’s first meeting is quite romantic and the events which lead there are very complicated, deliberate, the saying that ‘everything happens for reason’ might be valid here or was it mere happenstance?

From the very first sentence the words are alive, every single description, event, dialogue talks for itself. You will picture everything right away. Fascinating how quickly a well written book can suck you in.

In Beauty from Ashes romance and mystery walks hand in hand, in the sequel, Donwell Abbey, there is a fine line in between. However it comes in full circle when Elizabeth and Darcy finally reunite.

In the first 30-40% of the book there is less emphasis on the feelings and romance and more on the mystery, spies, relationship between the characters, but then meets Lizzy and Darcy, you forget the mystery and love, attachments and passion dominates. Elizabeth is as headstrong as always but she realizes it was nearly for nothing. I don’t have to tell you, it is going to break your heart… along with the big get-together scene in the end (94% in the kindle edition). Have some Kleenex with you. Just sayin’! J And then you thought you read a book where Darcy hits (the) rock bottom? You might revise it after reading Donwell…

One of my favourite passages is that Darcy falls in love with the same women twice without knowing it. They are together, but not. They are at the same place at the same time, they communicate, but it’s not what it seems. Plus, how Ms Monette tortures Elizabeth sometimes is a beautiful touch.
