I enjoyed the book very much - I thought with 5 sisters they might blend together but they were each unique in their own way. The magic being frowned upon socially was an interesting aspect. The book ending was tidied up but you could see where it could continue with additional volumes as society continues to struggle with accepting magic.
I stayed up too late two nights because I did not want to put the book down.
Her mother's hopes are raised when a new family - the Webbers - move to the estate next door. Mr. Webber is accompanied by his sisters, his brother-in-law, and his good friend Mr. Archer. Mrs. Dover sees two potential suitors for her daughters. The oldest sister Rosamund falls for Mr. Webber and Elsabeth is in turn put off by Mr. Archer's haughty stance. However, magic is not at all acceptable in the upper classes and the taint of it may make the girls unmarriageable. Hiding it becomes increasingly difficult when the youngest daughter, who is very vain and self-absorbed, uses magic to attract the attention of a handsome soldier named Captain Hartnell who is a cad of the highest order.
First, a misunderstanding separates Rosamund and Mr. Webber. Then a misplaced proposal separates Mr. Archer from Elsabeth. Then a scandal created by the youngest daughter Dina threatens the security of the whole family. Along the way Elsabeth learns more about magic in general and becomes incensed that society keeps her from using it. I loved the way Elsabeth grew through the story.
This was a great story with fascinating characters, sly humor, and romance.
The author fixed ALL that perplexed me in the original work - every character, even the 'villains' are fleshed out and full of lights and shadows.
There is diversity!!! Guys, Darcy is of African heritage!!! There are no colonies in America because the League of Iroquois kicked their butts out of North America!!! The African kingdoms are alive and thriving!
There is LGBT representation!!! Because nobody really wanted poor Charlotte to be stuck with Mr Collins - Miss Bingley is far better instead!!
All the women characters are STRONG! Are independent! They take names and kick butts and even Lydia becomes scarily good - selfish and immature, but powerful and manipulative!
I feel like going every line and highlight there whole book because this alternate universe retellings might not be book we wanted BUT ITS THE BOOK WE NEED as educated 21th century readers of such a classic!!!

Inspired by Jane Austin but does her better with modern and magic problems and storytelling.
