If you are a true fan of P&P retellings and variations DO NO
If you are a true fan of P&P retellings and variations DO NOT waste your money or bother with this book. By the third chapter I was literally sick to my stomach. I could not believe what I was reading. Our precious Elizabeth is raped by Darcy's cousin Lord Something or other and was set up for it by none other than Darcy's wife/cousin Anne. YES that Anne, this author actually had them married!!!!! That right there should have been my first clue the author does not understand our Beloved Darcy.
I am slowly making my way through all the retellings,prequels,diaries and sequels and I have read some really really bad ones but this is by far the worst. I felt as though with each line I was being slapped in the face.
Believe me I love the retellings they are my favorite but there should be some silent rule as to how far a variation should go. Even An Unpleasent Walk by C.Rafe knew when to draw the line. I loved that book so I am not totaly oppsoed to taking a retelling in another direction but I am disgusted as to how the author could take such beloved characters and porrtay in such a manner is beyond me. Spoiler alert it ends well but I could not stomach the whole book so I peeked.That is 4 dollars and half a morning I will never get back.
