My favorite from this author.
As usual, Darcy leaves Meryton after the Ball. As usual, he agonizes over leaving Miss Elizabeth.
Unusually, he decides to return to Hertfordshire and marry the girl! Bingley allows him to reside at
Netherfield but does not journey with him.
Darcy has a talk with Mr. Bennet who agrees to consent to the marriage if Elizabeth accepts a proposal within a month.
Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense. ~Mark Overby
First things first! Darcy must lift the fog Wickham had created in Elizabeth’s mind. Then a courtship can begin.
The love story makes good progress until Darcy sends for Georgiana. The Bingley spinster insists
she and her brother will travel with Georgiana. When the spinster learns of Darcy’s engagement, she seeks revenge.
I liked Mrs. Bennet in this story: she actually corrects several instances of Lydia’s inappropriate behaviour.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop more inappropriate behaviour.
Great Epilogue! All the villains get their rewards. Loved it.
True love stories never have endings. ~Richard Bach
I was, however, frequently stunned to see so many basic grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. It didn't make sense, because the plot and vocabulary suggest that Ms. Roberts is a mature writer and experienced reader. The errors were either careless or elementary but should have been resolved in grammar-school: Plurals are never produced with apostrophes (i.e., the Bennets, not "Bennet's") and possession is not indicated by adding "s" or "-ies" (i.e. His Majesty's Army, not "Majesties"; the lady's coat, not "the ladies coat"). In addition to these strange problems with plurals and possession, the dialogue was littered with very strange question-mark usage, placing them where they don't belong (i.e. "Sometimes, Charles couldn't help but wondered [sic] why Darcy had chosen to befriend the son of a merchant such as him? [sic]"; "It seems I bring out the worse [sic] in you, Miss Bennet? [sic]" — these sentences are statements.) The aforementioned examples also reveal some careless spelling or typographical errors (i.e. one brings out the worst in someone, not the "worse"; "annunciating" [not a word] vs. "enunciating") or near-misses (i.e. "then" instead of "than"; "doe eyes" [noun] instead of "doe-eyed" [adjective]).
I know it's hard to see our own errors, but these are so fundamental that if they couldn't be caught by the author, then they should at least have been caught by an editor before going to print.
