The voice in this book reminds me of Jennetta James’s Suddenly Mrs Darcy—strong, isolated characters who find their way from darkness. While this dark first person narrative prevents us from viewing the whole tableau, it gives us a full view of the character. The book is narrated by both Elizabeth and Darcy; though their inner voices unfortunately sound the same, one can forgive this lapse because the book is so gripping. The narrative flows like poetry, and the dialogue is next to flawless, as well.
I deduct a quarter of a star for the identical voices, and a quarter for the poor footman.
In addition, Richard’s storyline doesn’t reach itsfull potential. When Richard’s key to happily ever after falls directly in his lap, it seems excessively cruel. This character has struggled so long, and having his storyline wrap up so neatly is a disservice to said struggles. Richard’s romance with his baby’s nurse would have had much more power, had Richard not had an easy out that melted into a perfect ending.
Aside from those few quibbles, this is easily one of the top three JAFFs I’ve read this year.
I do agree with others in that I was sad about the outcome of one of the characters, felt short-changed with another beloved character's too quickly wrapped up HEA. And I too wish there had been an epilogue. I wanted to see more of the future lives of the new characters introduced in this book. I'll definitely be rereading this over the years. I wish the author a long and productive writing career. Please!
