I love the stories that happens after HEA, always curious of what happened to them after they are married. This novel is about their first 6 mnd and how Elizabeth is accepted by the ton. Not a lot of action but sweet, romantic and passionate, no angst.
I prefer a little angst like Sharon Lathan "The Darcy saga " or Linda Berdoll " Darcy and Elizabeth " but this is a sweet story when you are in the mood for something light and airy.
I probably would only put 3 stars on this if I hadn't loved the first book "Rainy days ".
I also like the idea of bringing the Gardner children into the plot and the antics of Becky. You could laugh with Darcy and Lady Ellen at Becky's wording in her compliments and complaints. I loved that part of the story.
Compassion and understanding was shown throughout the novel by Elizabeth and Darcy in how they cared for the girl in the cold and helped her family in the their trying times. Such dedicated not only to them but to their staff and showed them courtesy as well.
The cabin comes into play once again while visiting her parents and Darcy has it restored and takes Lizzy there and it rains during the night. When they awake there is a rainbow. Darcy promises her a rainbow at Pemberley. (I was wondering when the rainbow came into play for the title of the novel. Now I know part of it.)
When all the family are invited, the rest of the plot falls into place for me. You will have to read the novel to find the rest out.
This is a wonderful novel full of romance, heartache for a few, sadness for some but much love for many!
There wasn't anyway for me to give it less than 5 stars!
Thank you for a wonderful endearing novel and especially for the antics of Becky. (Sort of reminds me of my daughter, Rebecca.)
In Maude and Thomas's situation...I wonder if this is where the ban on work place relationship especially when it involves the boss originated. Far too often we hear of maids being taken advantage of by the males in the household. It's something that even our Founding Fathers were " guilty" of. Maude was quite fortunate that Elizabeth found her because most members of the Ton wouldn't have looked kindly on her. Even though they acknowledge that the male created the situation that fact is that they blamed the entire experience on his victim.
Lovely story especially when Elizabeth shows her backbone. She isn't a victim of the taunting by Caroline Bingley any more.
Secondly, while this is a very lovely story of the early months of Fitzwilliam's and Elizabeth's marriage it had little of the angst which I so love. In my opinion it was an attentive and sweet look at this couple's entrance into society in London and the ripples from that. Society, knowing of Elizabeth's background but also honoring the status of not only her husband but also her aunt, Lady Matlock, is looking very closely at not only how Elizabeth dresses and behaves but also paying heed to who invites her to their balls and dinners, which events they attend, i.e., the theater, and how they also entertain and whom they visit in return. Caroline gets her digs in – will that woman never learn? But you may like how she is handled and by whom…not just Elizabeth’s very subtle retorts.
Yes, there are a lot of love scenes. I found that they are not graphic to the extreme but well handled. But know that they are there and as we would expect in newlyweds they are not only contained to their bedroom. There is additionally attention paid to anniversaries, i.e., weekly and monthly.
Young Becky is written as very precocious. Her language and perceptions of what is going on around here seems to be that of one older than four years old. But she does gain third place in Darcy’s heart.
But speaking of love/sex scenes, this tale makes a point of addressing the accepted immoral behavior of many sons and husbands in the ton whose wives are more political or financial arrangements than objects of adoration. And, as we have read in other novels, this behavior is not always perpetrated upon the class of ladies who may or may not have selected to trade in being prostitutes, mistresses or even adulteresses. Here Lady Matlock gains my applause. And as Elizabeth shows in a quiet and discreet manner her care of all around her, not just her peers, Darcy and others learn the worth of a human being and how it should be done.
Richard and his brother, Robert, as well as Robert's wife, Beatrice, have significant roles here and young Georgiana is learning much by observation and with having a new sister. Most of the action is in London but we do retire to the country and as families gather tolerance of each other's extended families plays a part. Yes, we again witness Mrs. Bennet in action as well as Lady Catherine. You may smile as Lady C. brings upon her own self some uncomfortable effects.
There is an epilogue, which I always like being available.
If you like sequels and you cannot bear tension or angst in your stores plus you love up close and personal accounting of young lovers’ interaction, this is the tale for you. Well done. I did enjoy it.
