As we read the poignant thoughts in each mind we again suffer those pangs due to memories of past misunderstandings, fate and the vile actions of others which led to this couples' being separated and believing the other had never truly meant anything with those smiles and gentle conversations, when they met at Pemberley while Elizabeth and the Gardiners visited there.
Darcy is snowed in at McCaffney's Inn. So he is there for more than one night. Neither knows the history of what happened after Pemberley but each knows that the other married. They soon learn that each has lost their spouse. But there is so much more to the story and how much each is willing to share. How open will they be?
Mrs. Wickham lives at the inn with Elizabeth. They have not seen family for over 5 years. While Elizabeth has made a success of managing the inn; she also has worked to correct the behaviors that forced Lydia's marriage. But we learn that Lydia is in a state of limbo. No one knows what became of her husband after he shipped her home and left for the war front.
There is so much to enjoy in this book even if your heart is touched at where we first find ODC. I loved how they came to acknowledge not only their continued love for each other but also the need to share what fears they carried from all the experiences in the time apart. And their plight is helped by Lydia, by Georgiana and a few others.
A Dance With Mr. Darcy is not only in consideration of an injury he suffered which may cause missteps but also the dance life has led this couple into and how they execute the steps.
1. Scars on his face from a crash in a carriage five years previous.
2. Scars on his ankle from that same crash – an injury that has never healed.
3. Another injury that has never healed? The pain of knowing Elizabeth Bennet married someone else when he failed to return to Meryton after Lady Catherine’s visit.
Elizabeth has scars.
1. Scars from her abandonment after Darcy didn’t return to her after Lady Catherine’s visit
2. Scars from Lydia’s abandonment by Wickham after Darcy had contracted their marriage
3. Scars from Jane’s second abandonment by Bingley after Wickham returned Lydia to her parents
4. Scars from her abusive husband – a marriage she entered to save Jane and Lydia
Sometimes you can head off a decision you'll regret by looking into your heart and finding regret already there. ~Robert Brault
After five years apart, Darcy and Elizabeth meet accidentally in Scotland. Both have been widowed and both still love the other. Five years is a long time -- regrets and fears have been conceived and matured.
The couple meets, fears, hopes, fears, supports, fears, regrets and fears again.
Will their fears – especially Elizabeth’s – be strong enough to keep them apart?
What will it take to confront and conquer those fears?
Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark; professionals built the Titanic. ~Author Unknown
This is a bittersweet story of love, loss and hope. I would recommend this to all JAFF readers.
