There was a nice conclusion for Lydia, although it took an interesting turn beforehand. I don't want to say too much and give spoilers away, but for me the story really heated up towards the end and I couldn't put the book down, even though I knew from P & P experience what the conclusion would be!
I did think that Mr Bingley was quite wet in this version. It would be really nice to see a much stronger Bingley as I think he is a really nice character normally.
On the whole I really enjoyed this story. It was quite detailed for the time period and came with all the usual angst that we get from reading about Darcy and Elizabeth. I will be checking out some of the other variations from this author.
The plot starts in Hunsford the morning after Elizabeth refused Darcy. She meets Darcy who wants to give her the famous letter but she decides not to accept it. Later, he gave it to her with a help of a friend but she burns it without reading it. Elizabeth goes to Pemberley as in Pride and Prejudice but I constantly had to remind myself that Wickham’s character is not known for Lizzy, as she hasn’t read the letter.
The characters are wonderfully written and very close to Jane Austen’s original characters. From Pride an Prejudice my favourite character is Mrs Gardiner. In this variation she is as amazing as in the original. The Gardiner’s connection with Elizabeth and later with Darcy is remarkable.
The language is perfect (I’m not native but I believe the writer. As I see it, the words, the sentences, the expressions could be Jane Austen’s) Very clever from Ms Reynolds that she does put fun, kind, caring words into E and D’s mouth when the scene requires it. They are talking very when they need to and they don’t talk to each other when the plot requires that, what leads to missunderstandings. I also like that the narrator makes it clear that Elizabeth sees more than in the original PP. (For e.g. “He gave her a warm smile that set her heart beating a little harder. Even she could recognize that look indicated something beyond platonic friendship.Read more ›

Lovely take on the love story between Darcy an Elizabeth. I also enjoyed the different outcome for Lydia and Wickham. I did not like this Mr Bingley very much.Published on 22 Aug. 2013 by Amazon Customer
