When she wants to go home, she puts on her old clothes and does know that she has to go back through the Wardrobe because she misses her parents and siblings.
In her nightmares after she is married she sees parts of that travel and does remember that hat with the flower on it however, the past seems to torment her.
In her travels with Darcy, they meet Byron, Shelley and Mary Godwin and Mary becomes Lizzy's dear friend. Later Mary becomes Mary Shelley who eventually writes, "Frankenstein."
I would advise any one who would want to go on an adventure through the Bennet Wardrobe to make sure you read them in order and you will see how this family in all entwined. It is a remarkable series and it will keep you interested throughout the series .
Thank you for another great reading adventure.
This window into Lizzy's adventure with the Wardrobe truly shows the reader, that regardless of age, it sends you where you are needed or where you need to be. The innocent, but precocious, Lizzy Bennet finds herself seeking a hiding place in the age old game of hide-and-seek. She determines that the Wardrobe in her father's library is just the place. Little does she know, that she will be thrust into a future so foreign that only dreams remain from her journey. Dreams that will have impact on others in the years yet to come.
I was again captured by this beautifully written tale of Lizzy as a child experiencing a world so unknown to her. Her sense of self and those she met added a more mystical realm of magic to the story. It also gave a small but very needed moment in time to another. Later, when married to Mr. Darcy and bereft of a loss so personal, your emotions pour forth. What I found so fascinating, were the nuggets of historical characters, history and myths of legends so seamlessly woven into this novella.
I again highly recommend this 'capsule in time' in the on-going saga of the Bennet Wardrobe.
Lizzy Bennet Meets the Countess falls between The two parts of The Exile and does not make for a good place to begin the series nor should it be read before The Exile: Kitty Bennet and the Belle Epoque.
This is a pair of novellas highlighting Lizzy Bennet at two different times in her life.
The first tells the story of precocious ten year old Lizzy getting a time travel experience through the wardrobe. The focus is Lizzy and yet the story is a heartwarming follow-up (yes, the one I wished for after reading The Exile vol. one- wish granted) with Kitty (or rather Lady Kate as she is known in her modern times), Henry, Maggie, Jacques and their children on summer holiday. I loved this peek-in on their lives and felt the bittersweet tang of Kitty being with her older sister, but not being able to act as more as a distant aunt. I will say, I found this version of a ten year old girl, educated or not, had the mature thinking and processing that rivaled a Mensa child. I let it go and went with it because I was enjoying the story.
The second story takes the reader into Lizzy's married years with Darcy. Sadly, they have lost a child and Lizzy's grief is overwhelming so Darcy takes her on a trip to the Continent. The pair encounter Byron, Pollidori, Shelley, and Goddard in their famous meeting by Lake Geneva that generated such fantastic classic literature. Lizzy is despondent, but in her despair, she fuels the creative mind of the woman who would write Frankenstein. It's a sad, poignant tale with gothic overtones that I found diverting as I love the old classic Frankenstein and it was a reminder that I never have encountered Pollidori's The Vampyre yet.
So, this was a fast read of these two stories and engaging for a fan of the series leading up to the second part of Kitty's story. The stories were very different in tone. I was drawn to the first one by my fixation on Kitty and Henry, but I thought they were both well worth the read. Again, I gently urge Austenesque lovers to give this fabulous and unique time travel series a try.
