Darcy keeps fighting with himself, wanting to be a white knight but then saying what does it matter as I am never going to see her again. There is the cliche in modern days, "Two strikes and you're out!" So Darcy keeps trying to accept that fate but events keep occurring which put him into Elizabeth's presence again...and again.
There are some surprising differences from canon in the variation: Lydia's story, Brighton, Mrs. Bennet's reaction to and handling of the disgrace of her daughter and Bingley's thoughts on Darcy's "hero" act. Georgiana, also, is a big part of this story and shows some maturing in her thoughts about her attachment to Wickham, about his character and about what is going on with Darcy and Elizabeth. We hear little of Jane as most of this story takes place in either London or Brighton.
When Darcy is in Elizabeth's presence his mind seems very muddled...he can only think of how he wants to go up to her and take her in his arms and express his ardor for her. And, again, he fails to ask her to dance at an assembly. He really seems to be more twisted up in this second volume and after his second attempt to gain Elizabeth's hand. Then his honor is put on the line when another woman encounters him while he is drinking away his sorrow at an inn. Can he be happy marrying because of a compromising event, which he can't even remember?
The author did come up with some creative writing but I would have liked to have seen some of the situations come to a more detailed and happy conclusion. I do recommend this book. It did keep my attention as a page turner.
I have read where some thought the story was rushed. I do not feel that way. I really enjoyed the way the story flowed. Even though , at times I felt Elizabeth was a minor charActer, her impact on Darcy and Georgina kept her in the forefront .
Monica did a fabulous job of making Darcy's pov as well as Georgina's guide us through his challenge !
Well worth the time and money , definitely one to re read on a rainy day !
Happy news for Lydia. Darcy finally earns Elizabeth's favour and she accepts his hand in marriage. On to the third novel which I look forward too!
Although it touched my emotions, I wasn't as comfortable with the book as I have been with some.
Editing could have been better. It's easy to overlook missing words, but there were duplications of words and some very blatant misspellings that should have been caught. Otherwise, it was a fairly good variation.
