It is yet again, another fantastic "what if" scenario from Abigail Reynolds!!
All of Reynolds' novels have been fantastic to read but this one...it had so much emotion! Imgining Elizabeth being demoted to living with her Aunt and Uncle Gardiner in Cheapside it hard enough. Then you have the proud Mr Darcy standing up to his family. I mean, most of Reynolds' books have a predictable ending, normally with Lizzy and Darcy getting married, but this one was unmistakably brilliant!! I read the whole book in a matter of hours, it grips you from page one!
You are so emotionally linked to this book that by the middle of the book you are so happy for the couple you could cry. Yet, more unfortunate circumstances drive them apart. Fistly, Lizzy wrongly interprets Mr Darcy's proposal of marriage for one to be his mistress! Then disaster strikes with Lydia who has not eloped, but is pregnant!
The characterisations are fantastic, even the upbeat Mrs Bennet who continues to swoon with her nerves and the polite Jane who marries a much older shopkeeper to secure the family. Lizzy's character is also extremely special, she continues her witty banter despite her cercumstances. The characterisations are also good of Mr Darcy's family, including new characters such as the sister of the fomer Mrs Darcy who is hilarious!
It is however, slightly more erotic than Reynolds' normal scenarios of "what if's". There are multiple references to mistresses and the taking of young working girls virginity as amusement. This however, only emphasises Darcy's love for Elizabeth who bluntly refuses his uncle's attemps to find him a suitable mistress.Read more ›
The social divide between Darcy and Lizzy now seems so unsurpassable and yet Darcy still cannot imagine his life without Lizzy. I enjoyed seeing this side to Darcy. He was very sweet and caring towards Lizzy and all her family and in the second half the book he was truly the knight in shinning armour! Seeing the struggles the couple face and the misunderstandings and problems they must overcome before they can be together is heart-wrenching. There are times when it seems it really will be impossible to end with the happy ending we all know, expect and love (it does of course, don't fret!)
Bingley had an interesting role and turn of character in this story. The situation and emotional state he ends up in because of Jane's marriage to another is very sad to see in the normally happy, cheerful and upbeat Mr Bingley. His journey through the story is an interesting one. Georgiana too faces many problems to overcome after the incident with Wickham (to which there is an extra aspect in this tale) before she can mature into the young woman she truly is.
There is a major theme through this book linked to what the supposed 'gentleman' of society and the 'ton' really get up to. I found all the talk of mistresses through this book and incidents revolving around the issue quite distressing (the main distress coming from Colonel Fitzwilliam's horrid father and brother) although it was an interesting and brave topic to expand on.Read more ›
This story is presented primarily from the viewpoint of Darcy with only small segments of it from Elizabeth's perspective. Still, I was enjoying the story which gave me an indication of how much Darcy loved Elizabeth and how much he fought against that love, for reasons of family pride and social standing. Then it all began to devolve into a fairy tale with improbable new characters who were allowed to act in completely unrealistic ways for the times. There were evil relatives counterbalanced by worthy and kind and good urchins and servants. Lydia was still her same selfish self but with a problem that Darcy could solve. In fact, Darcy solved every problem for every single person in this story. It's a wonder the poor man didn't find himself on the verge of bankruptcy. He handed out money like it was water. And if Darcy wasn't giving out money then another good relative was sprinkling the fairy dust over situations right and left to make them come out with a perfect Happily Ever After emblazoned with sparkling lights and twittering bluebirds of happiness.Read more ›
