The love story here is love for family. The tragedy is the loss of a child and the long ranging consequences for so many. The narrator' s voice expressed the grief.
Darcy portrayal was within his group of friends and his guard was down. Interesting too is his role of would be suitor who was not good enough.
The author left us wanting more....
I am a working woman in a man's world but it's ok because I really love being around men !! I've been happily married for 48 years!
This book is such a peek into the past when ladies were known for appearing "Prim and Proper"--however their thoughts were often not that way at all. Even in the olden days love and affection is needed by everyone and some people will go to extremes to find it.
Lady Victoria is a lady who definitely doesn't mind expression her opinions to others. She doesn't let anyone push her around. She is "feisty". She would do well in the modern world of romance.
Pearl really brings you back to the past and lets us hear how the people during the time conversed with each other. They had a way with words back then and it really makes me laugh sometime at the way they speak to each other !
Age Old Story of How the Story of True Love Never Runs Smoothe
I think sometimes what my family would say if I used a few phrases that were used in this book during a conversation. They would think I lost my mind--no one is so "nice" any more it seems.
I very much enjoyed this book. Pam Dixon has written another page turner. It was difficult to put this book down. When everything seemed to settle into place for Darcy and Elizabeth another impediment would loom. Elizabeth has joined the Bennet family and is shocked at their behavior, but, knows they ae what has been missing. She now has two mothers and a brother who is looking out for her. Mr. Darcy is ready to go to Netherfield and wait for her to adjust to her new family when he is involved in a carriage accident. His cousin, Lady Victoria, desperately wants him for herself and will stop at nothing to get him to marry her.
I loved Pearl Hewitt's narration. She has a knack for making you feel you are in the room with the characters watching the scene unfold. Her accent puts you in the drawing room of Regency England and her consistency in the voicing of the characters is remarkable. I have enjoyed Pearl's narrations.
I received the audiobook from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.
