Just like in P and P, Elizabeth is the same strong and intelligent young woman we all know and love. However, Ms. Grace has added some insecurity and guilt to Elizabeth's personality. She feels guilty that she hasn't given her sisters enough attention and has failed her family. Her guilt gives her the strength to embrace her sisters for who they are and respect them. For Elizabeth, she always relied on Jane and her father; but now, she must turn to Mary and Kitty for support. Both girls thrive under Elizabeth's attention. Sisterly guilty can be a strong motive to embrace one's family.
I loved the sister bonding between Jane, Elizabeth, Mary and Kitty. With the four Bennet sisters united, they can conquer anything. I think Ms. Grace had a wonderful idea of having the story revolve around the sisters. Each young lady has her own strength and talent and when all the sisters join together...LOOK OUT! It's a sight to behold. I really like that they were able to gather strength from each other.
Lydia is an absolute twit! If it has only touched upon in P and P, Ms. Grace fully describes Lydia's outrageous and selfish behavior. It's a perfect set-up for when Mr. Wickham enters the picture. She has complete disregard for her family's reputation and focuses solely only on her own entertainment. Ms. Grace's characterization of Lydia leaves nothing to be desired.
The Future Mrs. Darcy is a delightful Austenesque novel. The sisterly bond is wonderful to watch unfold.
Lydia naturally is out of control and Mr. Bennet gives into her while Mrs. Bennet is confined to her bed with her case of nerves. Mrs. Bennet's case of nerves was caused by the scandal of Lydia's behavior and gossip throught the town about her daughter's behavior. Neighbors shunned them and Elizabeth wanted to prove to the town that they were good and respectable.
Mr. Bennet has to leave town and entrusts the duties of Mrs. Bennet to the girls and they do a good job and solves a few problems along the way.
As a reader, you do get a good sense of what goes on in a household and how to run it and the troubles that do arise in the running of it. All in all, when Lizzy gets Lydia home, Mrs. Bennet does talk to Lydia and seems to help her settle down after her near elopement.
The story ends with Elizabeth meeting Fitzwilliam when she is returning from delivering goods to a few tenants. So the story ends on a good note and onto the next volume to see what is next with the Bennet family. A well written novel full of information on this wonderful, enjoyable family and also entertaining.
