    1. Debbie B.’s review, as usual, sums things up very tidily. This novel focuses on the de Bourgh and Fitzwilliam families, their history and their present romantic and other entanglements. Darcy, more as a cousin to Richard and Anne, plays part here while his love life is on the fringes of this tale. Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet do come to an agreement and her father is petitioned successfully – but that is a minor detail here. As an aside, Mr. Bingley and Jane Bennet also find things working [...]

    2. ‘He is not a lover who does not love forever.’ EuripedesThis was the most unusual story I’ve read in a while. The style and way it was presented was so different, not unpleasant, but delivered in a way that was so unique. At times it was a bit confusing and I would occasionally lose track of who was speaking. I often lost who, what, when, where and half the time couldn’t figure out why? We were given hints but not a clear explanation or reason why something happened. We start out in Kent [...]

    3.

    4. This is my second read of this novella - I wanted to read a story that was not all about Darcy and Elizabeth.This Pride and Prejudice variation concentrates on the Fitzwilliam/de Bourgh family while they are all at Rosings. The relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth is of secondary concern, and they are helped by Anne and the Colonel. There is also a mystery from the past which impacts on the present. There is also a transformation of Lady Catherine which does occur literally overnight.I enjoy [...]

    5. What can I say?LOVED IT!I almost don't want to write a review. I wanted to wallow in the good feeling I have from this love story. We have villains, heroes, espionage, blackmail the list goes on. Although the original cast of characters from Pride & Prejudice are involved, (Darcy, Elizabeth, Bingley, Lady Catherine, and Mr. & Mrs. Collins), the story revolves mainly around Colonel Fitzwilliam and Anne de Burgh. New characters are introduced and minor characters only mentioned in original [...]
