    2.5 stars. It was okay. I love Jane Austen, and adore P & P

    2.5 stars. It was okay.

    I love Jane Austen, and adore P & P above all. How did I miss this series?

    When I got a copy of this book, I opened it with great anticipation. And then... meh. The language of this is much stronger and better than most Regency Romances, which are mostly costuming like little girls being dressed up for a tea party, and very little historical accuracy. And yet... it left me flat. I did not feel that Miss Darcy fell in love, or experienced any violent emotion, over the course of the novel. The barrier between her and her eventual fiance felt contrived and insufficient, and when in the end, it was quite easily overcome after all, I felt unsurprised.

    The only surprise was there was little to no mention of Mr. Wickham. Georgiana almost eloped with the man, after all, and he is now a member of her sister-in-law's family. This would surely make for unpleasant or uncomfortable reminders and even encounters from time to time, but it was as if that backstory never happened.

    Is it well written? Absolutely. Does it draw an excellent depiction of ongoing European events among this milieu of people? Yes. But I found that for myself, despite reading the book "determined to be pleased," as Miss Austen described earlier P & P characters, I simply wasn't emotionally involved with Ms. Latham's Miss Darcy or her suitors.
