The descriptions are marvelous. You can almost feel the sun on your face from the language and the scenes painted for the reader. I loved this part and it made me want to travel to these same places. It was apparent that a lot of research [or travel] had been completed in preparation for this writing.
“Love involves a peculiar unfathomable combination of understanding and misunderstanding.” Diane Arbus
Our variation was off canon from the first paragraph. We are half-a-dozen years after the disastrous Hunsford proposal. A refused Darcy had quickly married, had a child and was now a widower. For some reason, Elizabeth still maintained that mindset that she had at Netherfield during Jane’s illness [you know the one… that Darcy looked at her to find fault]. Well, this time she was mistaken again and she refused to listen to him, because she was so in love with him, she couldn’t bear for him to ask her to be a governess to his child. That’s it in a nutshell.
“Somewhere between love and hate lies confusion, misunderstanding and desperate hope.” Shannon L. Alder
This story was so frustrating that I wanted to bash Elizabeth over the head with her own reticule after I shook her till her teeth rattled. I mean WAKE up… lawd. I wanted to slit my own throat, I was that frustrated. We struggled with this for 90% of the story and then suddenly everything was HEA + an epilogue.
Rating: PG-13: There were conversations that were a bit steamy. There were explicit descriptions of statues, art, the history of the local families, their love stories, life, affairs, mistresses, revenge and murder. 3.5-stars [round to 4-stars]
After Elizabeth has refused Mr. Darcy, he marries another and is away to Europe. Jane and Mr. Bingley marry, but after the birth of her first child Jane finds herself weak and wanting the benefits of visiting the spas. Elizabeth travels with Charles and Jane across Europe acting as the governess to their daughter, but the group finds themselves in Florence with Mr. Darcy as their host. After losing his wife to illness and raising a daughter of his own, Darcy sees the opportunity to win Elizabeth once and for all.
The settings and history of this novel were a treat and I felt as if I was traveling and in some cases seeing things and experiencing them once again. I was traveling and falling in love all at the same time. What a refreshing read. Researched well and with no errors, the writing was smooth and flawless. At times I wanted to shake Elizabeth by the shoulders and tell her to wake-up each time she misunderstands Darcy! My heart was continually pierced again and again until he spells out his true feelings for her plainly to see. Loved it!
The descriptions of the Italian countryside and the art Elizabeth saw in Florence made me want to go out and immediately book a trip to Italy.
The plot was boring and predictable. And there was no romance. Darcy and Elizabeth had some moments alone but I didn’t feel it at all. There was nothing what could take my breath away. Only romantic moment was his proposal but then the plot was rushed to extreme and it was an end in a minute. The book had a potential to be a very beautiful P&P love story, as you can think it should be judging from the title but I had impression the author was much eager to write about culture and art of 19th century and forgot about primary subject of main characters. Very disappointing!
