4.0 out of 5 stars Unique take on a classic story, May 11, 2012

This review is from: The Journey (Paperback)
I had read Jan Hahn's other book and, frankly, didn't love it. I felt that Elizabeth was portrayed as an immature brat and Darcy as a wimp for too much of the story. With this book, however, the author has taken the completely opposite tack in her characterizations.

Elizabeth and Darcy find themselves in a tight spot and a mature and profoundly human relationship develops in which their good qualities come to the fore and their less than perfect ones are accepted. I was particularly touched by the scene in which Elizabeth refuses Darcy's proposal because she loves him too much to let him make what she perceives as a sacrifice. (The Elizabeth in the other books wouldn't have acted that way.)

In the end, all is resolved and the reader is left with a great deal of satisfaction, but also with the regret that such an interesting and entertaining book has ended.
