Georgiana is grown into a likeable and strongwilled heroine, not unlike Elizabeth in the original (who also gets sympathetic treatment here) and other characters get enhanced characterisation.
I'll be reading the next volume for sure.
I suppose I should start with my (very few) caveats before I gush about how much I loved this!
So: There are a few slips into American spellings/phraseology - nothing painfully bad, but a few spots where the author would have benefited from a British proofreader to weed out the odd sentence which doesn't fit. Overall though, despite Anna Elliott's disclaimer that she does not consider herself able to match Austen, she does a very creditable job of writing in a way that feels (to this Austen aficionado at least) like it could almost have flowed from Austen herself.
The ending is predictable - which in and of itself is not a bad thing, but on just one or two occasions I did want to bash certain characters' heads together! There is a fine line between dramatic and romantic tension, and characters being idiots, and a couple of times Elliott _almost_ topples over it. One never doubts that the endgame will play out as one wishes, and that can be a little too sweet at times for some people.
However, the good stuff far outweighs the minor niggles:
There is such a lot to enjoy here. The pairing up of characters is great, with a few unexpected twists and turns. Not only does the author portray characters we know well in a way that is absolutely recognisable (for instance, when writing Darcy and Lizzy), but she also breathes new life into characters who don't play a huge role in the original.Read more ›

Interesting and believable take. The characters are well played following the personalities set

Really enjoyed this book, as a fan of Jane Austen I usually avoid books like this, but the language, setting and historical fact felt true to me. Read morePublished 3 months ago by AF
Enjoyable read. Liked to see what the grown up Georgiana had become and nice to see the other well loved characters had developedPublished 3 months ago by Penway
Reads like a dozen other period romance hopefully. Void of originality and poignancy.Published 3 months ago by J. Matthews
I really enjoyed this book. Sometimes Pride & Prejudice sequels can completely lose the tone of the original. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Glitzy Jo
