Editorial Reviews

Review

*Chosen by JustJane1813, AND From Pemberley to Milton blogs as a top 2016 favourite!

*"A tender romance fraught with danger in this exciting and suspenseful novel set in the midst of World War I."  ~ Jan Hahn, author of An Arranged Marriage 

*"I absolutely loved this book. .... I will definitely re-read this one! 5 stars for me!" ~Goodreads reviewer 

*"One of the best P & P books I have ever read, and I have read hundreds."  ~Amazon reviewer

"...a stellar example of fine Austenesque literature. Ms. Monette has crafted an exceptionally moving story complete with a compelling plot, danger, mystery, action, introspection, vivid detail, and an emotionally wrought romance. Even if you are not one to enjoy war stories, I entreat you to give this one a try!" ~Austenesque Reviews

*"This story is one of my favourites and it's already on my reread list." ~Amazon reviewer

*"I've said it before but I'll say it again, this story is just amazing." ~ Carrie C. Derbyshire Writers Guild Reader

*"Ginger Monette accurately and successfully brings to life a forgotten period of history--The War to End All Wars. This is more than just another retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. This is an immersion into a world that was far more murky and horrible than any before. Where nineteenth century manners and strategies failed against twentieth century cynicism and arms. Where stubbornness, greed, and arrogance trumped patriotism, honor, and even common sense. An engrossing read." ~Jack Caldwell, author of The Three Colonels and The Plains of Chalmette

A wonderful WWI Darcy and Elizabeth drama (Part One). Yes we must wait until January 1 2017 for the continuation of this amazing saga. The story is so well written that one feels like they are right there in the trenches or at the Ritz (castle converted to a hospital within miles of the front line). Elizabeth's hopes of being a doctor are heightened as she is able to assist some amazing doctors while functioning as the companion of Monsieur Dubois, the owner of estate where the hospital is located. Mrs. Simpson is the delightful housekeeper who formerly worked at Pemberley when Captain Darcy was a child.. Of course Colonel Fitzwilliam is there in all of his military presence and uses Captain Darcy to run this whole operation as he so skillfully does at Pemberley.. The book follows the vision of the original P&P with a modern setting and feel. Elizabeth and Darcy get off to a bad start at a dance at Meryton, at the beginning of the war, when he make that stupid remark about her not being tolerable enough. Then serious issues with Longbourn and the Bennet family add to the angst between ODC.

Never fear, Wickham, Caorline Bingley and Lydia are still around to make things difficult for everyone. Evil is always evil regardless of the century in which it lives.

At the heart of this book is the hope that both Darcy and Elizabeth have deep down inside that there just might be a chance for them. They have made great strides in book one, but we must read book two to find out just how they reach that HEA.

I've never felt bound to the Regency era and really enjoy new settings and time frames for Darcy and Elizabeth. I highly recommend this book and also book two. Ms Monette is an amazing author who paints vivid pictures with words and develops endearing characters that keep us reading into the night.

I absolutely loved this book. The setting of WWI is a dangerous one. Elizabeth Bennet is a victim of this war, as much as anyone, she knows what she wants. She wants to be a doctor. Dependant on no man for her living. But forces unseen are moving the pieces of this particular chess board. Her father has allowed the taciturn Captain Darcy to take over the dower house and Elizabeth can not be happy about it at all. The added expense of refurbishing some of the rooms is not something she sees as necessary. Her father has passed and her family is fractured and nothing can change that. Elizabeth now has a fixed hatred for Captain Darcy, blaming him for all of her family's woes. Elizabeth and Jane are "enlisted" so to speak as nurses in France to help care for the soldiers.

I thoroughly enjoyed the author's re-imagining of the novel. The time period lends itself to many misunderstandings and difficult situations. Danger and intrigues abound, but the feel is sort of the same as cannon. She hates, he struggles. The basics are all here, with a great back story and an interesting ending. The secondary characters are endearing and well written. The scene descriptions are wonderfully detailed and bring you right into the story. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

One of the best P & P books I have ever read, and I have read hundreds. It is set during WWI (I usually avoid war stories), but most of this story is more about helping the wounded in a field hospital and trying to catch some spies. I first read this online as it developed chapter by chapter and was totally captivated by the story, and it has turned out even better. There are the D & E misunderstandings for them to get past, and their characters are generally as per canon, but dealing with the war and helping others has given them more understanding/sympathy with others, but also war issues for each intrude. This is a great love story. I will be looking for the next book from this author, to be sure.

The author took us on quite the adventure through the events of WWI. Excitement and perilous situations with the back and forth pulls is the heart of the story that is Elizabeth and Darcy. I cannot wait fir the continuation of this story

I am a huge fan of "Pride and Prejudice" and that is why I chose to read this book. I have never read a variation of a favorite classic before, and I was a little skeptical to see some of my favorite characters taken out of their setting and placed in one so vastly different. It took me a few chapters to leave my unease behind but I was quickly drawn into the storyline. I was intrigued by the ability of the author to maintain enough similarities of the characters themselves to recognize their basic characters but also the depth that she added to them that helps you understand these people on a deeper emotional level. The story was not only well written but historically rich. Most fiction overlooks WWI and goes right into WWII. It was refreshing and exciting to learn more about a time period that I have read very little about. It does end in a cliffhanger but does give closure. I am looking forward to reading the sequel.

Note: I received this book from the Publisher in exchange for my review

If you have always wanted to enjoy Lizzie and Darcy falling in love all over again for the first time, Darcy’s Hope is as close as you can get. The story takes place against the backdrop of World War I…an inspired choice that allows the main characters to retain their personalities while being affected by the War that changes so much.

My only quibble with this novel is a rather rushed beginning. However, I have only read a few “variations” on my beloved Jane Austin books so perhaps that is understandable since we already know the basis for the story and characters. This is very minor, however, once you get into the story, it is wonderful!

I love the setting – the author manages to include beauty and poignancy in the midst of the horror of wartime. In choosing this timeframe, the story is not so far in the future that it removes all the Regency Era conditions and yet is far enough to allow her to make some very interesting changes as to how the story plays out.

As the story unfolds, it is obvious that Ms. Monette has thoroughly researched the time period. She adds charming secondary characters with interesting accents and backgrounds. She doesn’t miss a single favorite scene or pivotal plot twist – all are ingeniously worked into a narrative that is dearly familiar and wonderfully new at the same time. I am looking forward to the next installment!
