[A] captivating story. I loved the echoes of Austen's wit, the well-crafted drawing-room intrigues, the engaging romance. Elliott's heroine is unique and believable, but totally true to Austen's original.... --Jules Watson, author of The Raven Queen

I felt like the author kept the characters true to their Pride and Prejudice selves. At least, no one acted so wildly out of character that they stuck out. The character of Georgiana went through a pretty big change in a short period of time. In the beginning of the book she was the shy, timid character we met before but by the end she was standing up to Lady Catherine herself. It felt a little fast to me, but not so fast that it was unbelievable.
The only thing that kept me from giving this four stars was that it dragged a little from time to time and the ending felt very incomplete to me. I kept hoping it wasn't really the end and there was an epilogue somewhere. This book really needed an epilogue to truly finish the story. As it was left, we assume we know what happened but we don't know for sure. I like to know for sure. :o)
But Georgiana Darcy doesn't want to marry just anyone, and she certainly isn't going to marry someone who has no interest in her save for her fortune. Georgiana wants the romantic dream that her brother Fitzwilliam and his wife Elizabeth found in each other, yet she fears the man she is in love with will not feel the same of her.
Georgiana starts out as a shy and insecure girl not quite ready to step into womanhood. However, as the story develops so does Georgiana: Through her associations with the Pemberley guests, Georgiana becomes more open, more confident, and more certain of what it is she wants, and more determined to secure it. in discovering her own voice she is able to move on from her indiscretion with George Wickham; helps her sickly cousin Anne discover life and love; stands up to her demanding Aunt de Bourgh; and at the end of the story declares herself a woman who has found her perfect gentleman.
In writing Georgiana Darcy's Diary, Anna Elliott has taken an important yet undeveloped character from Austen's masterpiece and given her those sentiments I would have expected her to have had Austen developed the character more herself. A quick read, Georgiana Darcy's Diary was a fun Regency romance that left me smiling, just as Austen's Pride & Prejudice has done so many times before.

Enjoyable read, and well written. The focus was enough on side and new characters that it felt like a visit to Pemberly, without detracting from previous ideas and impressions. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Christina M. Wilder
