"If you thought courtship in Austen's days were difficult, try falling in love in the 1930s. Karen M. Cox's 1932 takes Elizabeth and Darcy's whirlwind romance into the 20th century American midwest, where the Bennets must deal with the harsh realities of poverty and class discrimination. A sexy and exciting story, 1932 is a truly fresh take on this timeless tale." ~Sadie L. Trombetta, Bustle.com

Lizzy and her sisters are adjusting to their new surroundings and from the start of her arrival is aware of Darcy. He is still reserved and introverted but there is a southern charm about him I loved. Lizzy and him reach an agreement early on but you get to watch them grow in love as a couple. The truly key point that needs made is that Darcy is a virgin. I loved the idea but it did make it awkward in the beginning for the pair to find their way.
I recently got the companion to this one. It does give you another layer to Darcy's pov when you compare the two stories. I do prefer the ending to the sequel better than in this one. This one gives you a detailed epilogue, which I love, however I prefer my story to end leaving when a person passes out of the mix. I am not referring to D/E but the sheriff. It was sad to know and put a damper on a hea for me.
This is not a clean read but it is not overall e explicit either. The one other thing need mentioned is the secrets the couple keep. I am never a fan but was relieved when things cleared up. It broke my heart when Lizzy left pemberley and didn't take that risk to reach out to William. Enjoy!
Karen M. Cox is a really gifted storyteller that will transport you to a very difficult time in history and make you see that Mr. Darcy is not so serious after all.
But it is what it is and although she is good, she isn't Austin. Nor is this a flat out rewrite. I enjoyed this book and gave it five stars. It isn't the book I would write but it is a good read.
Cox's writing is intelligent with believable insights, endearing, clever dialogue and even a couple delicious love scenes. As her story progresses into a wholly creative retelling of this classic favorite, readers will delight in the new life breathed into Austen's canon characters. From the beginning melodrama to the end, I was engaged, entertained and exceedingly diverted. 1932 is a triumph!
