We, familiar with the story, know that is also the time period that Jane was in London, having returned with her Aunt and Uncle Gardiner. We now are given Darcy’s perspective of the window of time where he battled with his emotions and feelings for Elizabeth Bennet and how she haunted his every thought.
It was so cute as we were given glimpses of his younger days and his mother’s sage advice on being a gentleman and how he should conduct himself. It also told of her feelings for his happiness. We were privy to his longing for Elizabeth and how the women of the ton simply were not her. We have ODC comparing notes on their feelings of that time period and how their interpretations were so different. In some respect…completely opposite of what the other was thinking. But that is ODC and they soon learn that reflection is good for the soul.
There is no prize. Instead, there is "some day." What Darcy settles for "some day?" In fact, there isn't even a scene between Darcy and Elizabeth.
I have loved everything else by Miss Grace; this just misses the mark.
Yes, we have a married couple with their first Christmas and she decides to ask him about his last Christmas as an unmarried man. So Darcy reminisces about the previous year. Dates are given as we go back and forth between the past and the present. As the title informs you the past Christmas was spent in London. Darcy has some social obligations or events pressed on him by friends or relatives and with these the author gives us a view of some past Christmas traditions: a panto and a Twelfth Night Ball. The latter one was amusing as we hear Darcy and his partner (his absent cousin's fiancée) banter back and forth as Benedict and Beatrice...and how Darcy speculates as to how a certain Miss Bennet would have handled the role.
It was also quite ironic to read again of Darcy's state of denial as to his feelings about Miss Elizabeth: seeing her sister at the panto, finding Mr. Gardiner's business establishment, tracking a young boy to the house, paying him for some news, etc. Oh, Darcy, you are so lost!
As I said: I enjoyed this little novella. It was a pleasant diversion on a busy day.

BTW, the cover photo of what looks like a street thug has nothing to do with the actual story.Read more
