This book shows how Georgiana matures, how she develops strength of character and confidence, and how her relationship with Lizzy and her brother have helped shape her as a woman, not just a girl. It is a lovely coming of age story and a sweet (and sometimes painful) romance.
I never before thought much of Georgiana's life outside of being a filler person defining Darcy's character. Well! With this novel, Georgiana is actually a character in and of herself - Darcy is used to define HER character!
I have always wondered about Darcy's heavy protection of Georgiana - beyond the Wickham incident. This story gives a very plausible answer for the behaviors of both. It explains why Darcy became so overprotective, to the detriment of Georgiana's development. The characters in this story seem to follow canon and behave similar to the original book.
The book covers Georgiana's innermost reflections on what her life at Pemberley was like and her dreams of the future. Who knew fairies were involved in her early years and were the source of nightmares!
The first half of the novel is the reflective calm before the storm, filling in gaps left unrecorded in the JA original. There are flashbacks into her past, and her feelings regarding her suitors are revealed. Considering a life away from Pemberley causes Georgiana to realize she is not prepared to be mistress of any great house. What will she do? The story draws you into the plot to the point you MUST know how it turns out.
What happens in the second half? Be not concerned, after angst left and right, all will be well. But how? No spoilers here - you have to discover her fate for yourself!
As a companion to book one, the reader knows the story-line, the high points, low points, danger and angst that was presented. The author states that it was written four years after the first book. However, I have read all the books in the series straight through so I am following fairly closely after having read the first book. I will admit to speed reading through the parts I already knew. I stopped to read the parts I didn’t know.
This book supplies Georgiana’s POV, her thoughts and feelings about her life. We have glimpses of her when she was younger, when she lost her father, her relationship with her brother William, her cousin Colonel Fitzwilliam, and then her new sister Elizabeth. She has grown into a young woman on the cusp of marriage. We hear of her presentation and her coming out, her experience at Ramsgate and her feelings about that. She reflects on what she wants in life and she has to deal with the fortune hunters and those with honorable intentions. It is sort of a coming of age book for our dear girl.
Book one was the story of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam. Georgiana was present for most of the book; however, there were times she was missing from the page. This book supplies those blank places and fills us in on those questions left dangling from book one. It is clean, and a delightful read.
