Hahn's mastery of Regency eloquence, as well as the seamless injections of Austen's most famous prose is pitch perfect. Most appreciated is her deft understanding of romance-- sans all the tiresome throbbing and moaning one reads so often in many Darcy and Elizabeth adaptations. "His voice was as low and resonant as the diva's was high and clear, and I thought how lovely it would be to hear such words on his lips if we truly cared for each other. `Caro mi ben, credimi almen, senza di te languisce it cor.' `My dear beloved, believe me at least, without you my heart languishes.Read more ›
I have to admit, Mr. Darcy is my favorite character in the original book, as well as this one, but Elizabeth does run a close second. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a love of Jane Austen and the books written of that era. You will fall in love with the characters all over.
Darcy, ever the taciturn man, does not inform his wife about most of his doings, thus leaving her vulnerable to misconceptions. Otherwise, he is the perfect husband - patient and gentlemanly to a fault, and so much in love with his wife that this female reader would die to be in Elizabeth's shoes! Unlike in many other stories, this Elizabeth is not a whiny bitch but a brave and courageous person. Jan Hahn perfectly portrayed the uncertainty of first love. We have a passionate but innocent young woman who falls in love with her own husband - a man she had sworn to hate. I symphatized with our dear girl. For her, everything looks as if her spouse has fathered a child with a servant. But she does not tell him of her assumptions until the end of the book.
Most of the conflict is due to a lack of communication between our couple. However, I was glad for the abscence of melodramatics. Instead, the author gifted us with some tender, some passionate, and even some very humourous scenes. This is a feel-good-story, containing moderate angst and a very satisfying happily ever after. I have read countless "Pride and Prejudice" adaptations over the last years and this one ranks among my top five. Now I cannot wait to add "The Journey" to my collection. When read it on the internet, I was completely blown away by the magic of Jan Hahn's writing. There are very few authors who possess her tastefulness and sensitivity.
At first she is reluctant to do so but after talking with him she agrees for her family. This is where the love story starts. Once in London they learn about one another until someone sends a note that they will kidnap Georgiana and so all the Darcy staff end up staying in London.
By this time Elizabeth has fallen in love with Mr Darcy and is upset he is sending her away without telling her why. This is such a beautiful story and well written I could go on and on about it. This book is one I would highly recommend to every one.
