Genre: Historical Fiction
With her temptingly large dowry, the beautiful and talented Georgiana Darcy catches the eye of numerous suitors, not all of whom wish to marry purely for love. As Georgiana navigates the treacherous waters of courtship, her story becomes intertwined with that of Anne de Bourgh, her wealthy but painfully awkward cousin, who stirs up trouble when she sets her sights on a young gentleman with a rank far below her own. In so doing, Anne encounters the opposition of her proud and domineering mother, the formidable Lady Catherine de Bourgh, and sets in motion a chain of events that brings a damaging secret to light and threatens to destroy Georgiana’s dreams of happiness. Intrigues, gossip, and elopements further complicate Georgiana’s efforts to find love and avoid the snares of fortune-hunters.
“I would like to thank the author for providing with a copy of this book in return for an honest review.”
I am a massive fan of Pride and Prejudice and will read any thing related to it that I can get my hands on and thankfully this squeal story did not disappoint.
This story focuses on Georgiana Darcy and we get to see her navigate the muddy waters of courtship in the 1800s. We don’t get to see too much of Georgiana in the original book so I really enjoyed learning more about her in this novel.
I loved being back in this world, getting to see old favourites and what they have been up to after the story ended and also getting to learn more about characters that we don’t see much of in the original story as well as being introduced to a wonderful cast of new characters and seeing how they interact with each other.
I think that my one complaint would be that I got quite invested in Anne De Bourgh’s story and would have like to have seen more from her but instead she sort of disappears have way through the book and we never get to see the consequences of her actions.
Overall I really Enjoyed this and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the original material. I gave this 4 out f 5 stars.
