Darcy follows her to Hertfordshire bringing Bingley with him. He proposes to her there, stating that he can help her and her family in the event of her fathers death. After thinking about his offer she decided to take him up on it. It is understandably, an unhappy time for Elizabeth.
After Mr. Bennet's death, Darcy and Elizabeth go to Pemberley, where many misunderstandings begin. I must say, I was getting a little frustrated with how long it was taking for them to begin understanding one another. When they finally resolve their differences it is very good!
Overall I really enjoyed reading this story.
Rather, my problem revovled around Elizabeth. This Elizabeth thinks the worst of Darcy and continue to think ill of him without ever giving him the benefit of the doubt. Having read a LOT of Pride and Prejudice variations and fanfiction, I think my pet peeve would be those stories that make Elizabeth non-communicative in order to create angst--and thereby a plot--through miscommunications and misunderstandings between Darcy and Elizabeth. This Elizabeth is cruel--yes cruel--and depressed. We can understand her initial depression since she is dealing with the death of her father. However, having made the decision to "sacrifice" herself by marrying Darcy, I would like to have seen her make some effort at trying to make a successful marriage. Instead, this Elizabeth is childish and petulant in her behavior. For example, there is a section where Darcy mentions that he heard she is settling in well as the Mistress of Pemberley. And what is Elizabeth's response? Anger that he is checking up on her. The anger would be excusable if the author had laid a foundation of Darcy constantly checking up on Elizabeth and undermining her authority or questioning her suitability as the mistress.Read more ›
Read it. You'll love it.
The book is thoroughly researched as to the period and beautifully written. I believe the author was true to Jane Austen's characters, while concurrently allowing her own voice and style to shine through the narrative. I especially loved the misunderstanding between Elizabeth and Darcy in Chapter 52 over an appointment Darcy has made for Elizabeth with Georgianna's modiste. The "chink" of Elizabeth's coffee cup in its saucer begins a very lively and witty debate.
I would have given the book five stars if I had felt more comfortable with the lovemaking scenes. Although there was nothing explicit, I always believe less is more. I don't need to read details when my own imagination is supplying them. This author expertly prolongs the sexual tension between Elizabeth and Darcy, making the reader wait for them to finally have a wedding night.
Mr. Darcy's Proposal" is a richly textured, enjoyable read. I look forward to more novels from this author.
