We get to see Mr. Darcy in a different light as he must deal with both the terrible Wickham in rare form and his sister Georgiana during her "most trying age". Darcy appears vulnerable and sensitive which was so interesting to see, as usually we only first meet him as the "proud disagreeable man" who shows up in Hertfordshire with his friend.
I was nervous about this one at first, because I knew it was going to be lacking in the Darcy and Elizabeth relationship that I love. Even retellings told from the Darcy perspective eventually get to the Meryton meeting. Would I enjoy a completely Darcy book? After reading it, I wonder why I was hesitant. I'm Darcy obsessed... of course I would love it. It was great and I enjoyed every minute of it, so much so I found myself quickly wishing to go on and read the other two volumes. I was even more excited now knowing my favorite relationship was soon to start. You will end up wishing the story was longer. The preview of Darcy's Helpmate was a painful tease at the end and I simply cannot wait to read on.
Once you are hooked, you can read the Epilogue on George and Anne's Story on her website at [...] This is also very nicely done. Although kinda painful to read, the strength shown by Anne and the true love displayed by the pair is very touching. It certainly adds to the depth of the story Grace is creating. I could have easily seen this as a prologue to Vol. 1, but I also understand she probably wanted to keep an element of surprise to her retelling of the story. I really value this short piece though and think it would have put a different pleasant feel towards the story.
Either way... I cannot wait for the next two volumes to come out. After I finished the first I went straight to looking to the web to download the next! Ugh, they were not out yet which means I have started another series that is yet to be finished. WHY do I keep doing this to myself!? Her website says she is working to get the next two out as quickly as possible. Probably not fast enough for us though. :) Tomorrow?
That said, I didn't like some of the repeated word choices, for example everyone was always pressing handkerchiefs around. Further, I thought the verb usage was far too active, almost frenetic; people rake their hands all over their persons, they pace relentlessly, and most of all everyone is spring-loaded. What I mean by this is quite often Someone or Another "sprang up" or "sprang forward" or "sprang over". Another sort of funny usage was the animation of Elizabeth's eyebrows; they are always up to her hairline, twitching, or going this way and that; I laughed to imagine it, to be honest.
I just didn't think the over-activity suited the scene, and that it would have been far more appropriate for the characters to be still at certain times.
Having said my piece, I will add to it that I recall reading original Austen and finding it funny that everyone "cried out" this and that; why were they always shouting? Perhaps Ms. Grace was just trying to be faithful in that way. At any rate, I read quite a bit of her books and I liked them enough to continue. Thanks for that!
As I said, interesting.
Thru all this soul searching, he learned to trust, forgive and what he really wanted as a partner in life. Along the way there were disappointments with Georgianna but was forgiven after she learned the truth of Wickham's dealings.
He grew strength after reading his father's journals and became the man that his father was proud of and wanted him to be.
Well written and kept you interested and looking forward to volume 2. Thank you Ms. Grace for a wonderful inside to the real Fitzwilliam Darcy and also after a first meeting with Caroline Bingley in the novel, he knew he didn't want her as his partner in life.
