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.
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!
