This is the second variation to cause tears. The letters were wonderfully written and the author has my praise for them.
Only downside of this book was the ending. I was on a kindle and surprised to see I was at the end. There was no epilogue, but perhaps I'm too spoiled with other variations and hence why I still gave it five stars. I was ticked off that the ending was so open ended, but after a day to think on it, the story of our favorite couple never truly ends. Though, I can still hope that the author might do a sequel.
Taking a seemingly overused plot device (amnesia), Ms. Galvia gives it a twist that makes it seem brand new.
Aside from the main plotline, one of the best elements of this novel are the Darcys' five kids. Three of their own, a daughter and two sons, another daughter adopted from Captain and Mrs. Wickham, and another son, also a loan-out from the Wickhams whom we meet only by letter, who's already entered military service, despite his youth, as a "young gentleman" (i.e. midshipman) in the Royal Navy. You always knew the Darcys would be great parents and this book provides the proof.
Can't recommend it highly enough.
The reason I gave it three stars is that it was not pleasant reading. Maybe sometimes you're in the mood for realism and drama. Sometimes, you just want escape and entertainment. There was a lot of the former and not much of the latter. Yes, there is the promise of happiness at the end, but it is a muted promise and not particularly satisfying.
The reason that I read P&P variations is that I feel secure in the knowledge that, after jumping through a few hoops, our characters will come through to a serenely and securely joyous resolution of all their woes. I make no pretense that I expect anything more than comfortable and dependable predictability and escape from everyday tension and stress. Some authors do display better quality of writing and greater imagination than others and, of course, I prefer the better quality to the lesser. (I have no complaints about this author's skills in either regard).
However, the last thing I want is a prolonged, convoluted, and realistic depiction of a stressful situation. The stress began on page 1, varied roller-coaster-like throughout the book, and ended on a hopeful, but not thrilling, note on the last page. It was sad to watch both our beloved characters suffer, each in their own way. There are many other genres in which I can satisfy any need I might feel for realism and stress--or I can just watch the news or think about the upcoming election.
For me, P&P variations are an escape and a way to detach from reality without taking medication and I am not embarrassed to admit it. The book was well-written but did not meet my particular criteria for what a P&P variation is supposed to be or how I'm supposed to feel after reading it.
