What if all the Bennet daughters but Kitty were married? What if Lydia’s imprudent elopement was patched up in a way that still left a stain on the Bennet name? What if Kitty’s life consisted of a father who continues to ignore her, a mother that stays to her rooms, and a village that shuns her?
The coming holiday season holds little in the way of happiness and anticipation for our poor Kitty…that is until an invitation to spend the holidays at Pemberley arrives! (Don’t fret, Kitty! Your sisters have not forgotten you!) En route to Pemberley, Kitty spends a few days with Georgiana and her new companion – Mrs. Hartwell. But what starts out to be a thrilling trip to town filled with shopping, friends, and Christmas dinner at an earl’s house, comes to an abrupt end when Georgiana makes a false step and her strict companion forbids her all holiday entertainments…
After encountering Maria Grace’s Kitty (with her talent for sewing and eschewal of Lydia’s imprudent habits) I knew she would make an admirable and praiseworthy heroine! Since this story takes place mostly in London, we spend time with other minor characters – Georgiana Darcy, Mr. Bingley, Louisa Bingley, and the Gardiners. (Don’t expect much Darcy and Elizabeth.) I enjoyed seeing Kitty try to rise from her sister’s disgrace and improve her manners, and my heart went out to her when she suffered slights in Meryton and thought herself unworthy of the Bingleys.
What I loved most about this story was being able to witness the Christmas Day and Twelfth Night celebrations Kitty attended! I loved the scene with the Christmas pudding and all the charms inside (I think it would be a blast to replicate that tradition and see who gets what charm!) and the entertaining parlor games with the Gardiner children! In addition, I loved that the Twelfth Night celebrations took place at Longbourn instead of Pemberley. Call me crazy, but I love the idea of everyone being crowded and cozy at Longbourn – all good cheer and chaos! The Twelfth Night festivities were entertaining to witness and there are quite a few surprises in store for Kitty and for us readers! The conclusion kind of turns a little bit fairytale-ish at the end, though. It may not be as credible, but it was a very sweet and heartwarming ending.
One character I do wish we could have spent a little bit more time with is Georgiana. She started off bearing a resemblance to Lydia and there seemed to be good amount of contention between her and her companion. I would have liked to seen how their issues played out and a little more development of Georgiana’s character.
I found much to admire and appreciate in Maria Grace’s Give Good Principles series! I adored the new situations, revelations, and characters she created with her stories! A very inventive and introspective series! I recommend you read all four elegant volumes!
I am glad this series is finished. Or is it? We still don’t have a completion for Georgiana. Could there be another book for her?
I simply could not abide reading about another sister or young girl acting badly and doing damage to their family. Caroline to the very end was a holy terror and caused trouble, damage and chaos wherever she went.
This book left several threads hanging. I hesitate in asking about them as they may be considered spoilers. So I’ll leave it at that. I assume this is the end of the series????? When I’ve read previous reviews, several have thought that each book was the end. I have no notion if there is another to follow or not. There are several things left hanging and there wasn’t an epilogue.
Kitty was an emotional wreck most of the time and I simply got to the point I did not care any longer. Unlike those who have read them over time…I read them straight through and I am worn out.
This was Kitty’s journey and her struggles as she reached for her HEA. It didn’t have the excitement of the other books nor the tension. This was Kitty and her overcoming the wreck and ruin her sister had inflicted upon the family by her selfish and childish actions. All the other sisters were happily married and out of the scene. They made an appearance at the end but that was all. It was hard to rally around Kitty and her struggles. She vacillated between behaving in an angry, petulant, childish manner to wanting to be grown up.
The angst was short-lived and not very well developed. Everyone was angry, then they would make up and all would be well again until the next disaster hit. I’ve always wanted a story about Kitty, but I somehow got lost in this one. 3.5 stars
