But, on the whole, it was a pleasant reading experience. In addition to an imaginative plot, well-portrayed and believable characters (both canon and new), it was well written with excellent dialog and a beautiful and flowing use of language.
Darcy and Colonel Fitzwilliam pay an unexpected visit to Longbourn and Mr. Bennet. The time for Wickham's true nature to be revealed has arrived. Mr. Bennet, having received a letter from Elizabeth the day before concerning the same, now has many questions to put to the gentlemen. I enjoyed the ensuing dialog and discourse of the three men. It was revealing and entertaining. As the meeting comes to an end, Darcy and the Colonel split company. The Colonel has a surprise encounter and Mr. Bennet comes to his aid!
While Jane returns to Longbourn, Lizzy make a trip with Nicholas and Serena to the Harington's estate at Sutton Coker. Little does she know what lays ahead for her.
After overhearing part of a conversation, Darcy, desperate to leave London and Lizzy's presence, takes Georgiana and goes to Bath. He is hoping the change in scenery will help him forget the ache in his heart and the despair in his soul. The Colonel, who has some interesting news of his own to impart, soon joins them.
When everyone arrives at Sutton Coker, Mrs. Harington decides that a celebratory trip to their home in Bath will be ideal for Serena, Lizzy and her family, especially since two of her sons are already there. Oh, what exciting possible (probable) encounters await my favorite hero and heroine when both arrive in Bath, unbeknownst to each other. Sydney Gardens, the Pump Room and baths,The Royal Crescent and The Circus, all in the exquisite city of Bath...what is not love about this romantic setting! Ms. Grafton's first hand knowledge of the city and her skill in writing put this reader in the midst of Bath and made me feel as though I was right there with them. Delightful!
Although Darcy and Lizzy do not share scenes together at the beginning of Volume III, other story lines are being developed and some are being resolved. This time was necessary for Lizzy and even Darcy, to some extent, to know and come to terms with their feelings. The development is beautifully done and makes for sparks and high emotions when they do meet. (sigh)
The idea of the woven stick (reed bookmark) was poignant and significant, neatly `woven' through all three volumes. I treasured this thread, as the bookmark was treasured, and how its existence was brought to light ...a very precious revelation!
I will tell no more as my aim is to entice not to spoil.
The trilogy, A Fair Prospect, is outstanding. I give it a 5 star rating, as well as 5 stars to each volume. I am still amazed at the way Cassandra Grafton is able to get into the minds of her characters, and make me feel with them every moment of despair, agony, sadness, elation, joy and relief.
Volume III lives up to its predecessors and is every bit as good as Volume I and II. The story built to a very rewarding finish. The author stays consistent in her writing of beautiful Regency language. She never falters. Her original characters stay true to their nature throughout the trilogy and her new characters are charming and well written. All three books are exceptional and I highly recommend them.
