The story takes place in 1814 instead of 1811.
There is a huge impact that causes this 3 year shift. Something has happened that has caused Darcy to be out of the country for this entire time.
Lots of mystery and questions at the beginning but all are answered but one, and it’s a big one. Was Darcy a member of the military and if so, in what capacity? Does this unanswered question matter? I think so. No one ever talks about it, which is unlikely. This change of history hook feels unreal because it’s such a large part of his life and his friends would have talked and asked about it. And if it’s a secret, at least somewhere in the story it should be stated as such.
It’s symptomatic of the entire book. Not enough time is spent describing the newness of how history has changed. How hard was it for Richard to be master of Pemberley? 2 or 3 sentences saying it was hard but he did well. That’s not enough.
Everything is like that in the story. Not enough. Feels like an in depth outline. Feels like an unformed teenager compared to a full grown man. It Feels like Bingley, not like Darcy. :)
Aside from that, the book has its moments. Fairview nails Mr Collins, and the blossoming friendship and love between ODC is original.
Darcy has secluded himself in the moores of Cornwall when Bingley comes for a visit, begging him to accompany him to Netherfield. To abstract himself from his hiding might be dangerous though as he has ventured into it for good reasons.
Loved that it was Darcy who was suffering reduced circumstances in this story, cut off from Pemberley and all his illustrious connections it altered the reception of him in Meryton significantly.
Was not so fond of the Bingley/ Elizabeth "romance" as I prefer it when ODC do not even look twice at anybode else. That said, the ending was highly satisfying and Bingley lived up to my perception of him so I have no reason to complain.
As a lot of questions kept leaping up in my mind while I read, they where eventually answered. What happened to Georgiana, who did Jane marry and what had mr Darcy done to leave him in such dire straits... It will hold you in suspense towards the very end though.
Even though my craving for romance was satisfied in the lovely ending, I would not have minded if the mystery itself had been even more obscure.
Heartily recommend this book!
