I can count on one hand how many books gave me physical pain in my chest and made me sob uncontrollably… This was one of them. There will be a scene where something happens, but it’s not what you (well, I) expect. Beautiful or rather very clever and shocking is that it pulls the rug from under our feet, just like she did in The Unthinkable Triangle. After that scene I had to give up reading, walk to the shop and buy a double chocolate Magnum. It was not to be borne!
My favourite scene is the Christmas scene which is fascinating and thought through; and the Christmas presents are swoon-worthy. I won’t spoil it, but I’m sure you will want one too! Ms Starnes has found the present which – I believe- every Janeite needs and dreams about.
Bingley is absolutely adorable. I’m in love with him in this book.
Colonel Fitzwilliam is himself and with that, I told you everything. No doubt, Ms Starnes understands the Colonel.
As much as I hate Wickham, he was a nice addition to the plot but luckily there was not too much emphasis on him. The author cuts him short, but his letter is classic (just as Caroline Bingley’s). While I read the book, I thought of him (without any mention in the story) twice. Funnily enough both times he showed up in the next chapter or at the end of the chapter. Wicked timing.
There are many new characters, who are well written and fresh. I think my favourites are Miss Bradden and Martha, one of the housemaids.
I’m always surprised that every time I read a Joana Starnes book, I learn dozens of new words. (Obviously, I’m not a native speaker.)
I definitely recommend Miss Darcy’s Companion, but make sure you have an ice cream or a box
Ms. Starnes writes so well that even when Darcy angered at Wickham and voiced his opinion to Elizabeth and she misunderstood him, I felt what Elizabeth felt, Ms. Starnes also when she writes she puts the reader into the plot and they feel the sadness that Elizabeth felt. Also her writing put you upon the horse when Darcy was taking her back to Pemberley and felt her fear upon his horse.
For once we didn't have to hear Aunt Catherine berating Elizabeth but we did from the Colonel's sister-in-law.
It was a change of pace novel that made you feel happy as they celebrated Christmas, the ties between Georgiana and Elizabeth and even with Darcy in a better mode with all the family around them.
A nice ending and everyone was happy!
