Meet the Author

Though Maria Grace has been writing fiction since she was ten years old, those early efforts happily reside in a file drawer and are unlikely to see the light of day again, for which many are grateful.
 
She has one husband, two graduate degrees and two black belts, three sons, four undergraduate majors, five nieces, six cats, seven Regency-era fiction projects and notes for eight more writing projects in progress. To round out the list, she cooks for nine in order to accommodate the growing boys and usually makes ten meals at a time so she only cooks twice a month.

    This book is the third volume and longest in the trilogy, Given

    This book is the third volume and longest in the trilogy, Given Good Principles, by Maria Grace.  Volume I & II are both prequels to Pride and Prejudice with Volume I focusing on Darcy and his life prior to his trip to Herefordshire with Charles Bingley. Some background of the Bennet family and the reputations of Kitty and Lydia comprise the story for Volume II. I highly recommend reading both before reading Volume III. 

    In the beginning of All the Appearance of Goodness, Darcy and Lizzy meet for the first time. (And in a most unusual way)  I loved this scene and the repertoire between my two favorite characters. It was very well done and brought many smiles. Another good thing about it was that it made for some nice references later in the book.

    George Wickham is mentioned but is not in this story as he was dealt with in Volume I. He does have a replacement of sorts, in the form of Mr. Collins, the handsome and charming clergyman. (Yes, you read right!) Lizzy is true to character here as she is, at first, taken in by his looks and eloquence of speech. Lydia, not true to character, is not, and has an intense dislike for their fetching cousin. She even tries to convince Lizzy of her reasons for mistrusting him but Lizzy will not listen. What could Lydia possibly know…except maybe a bit of jealousy?

    Darcy’s good friend and now vicar, Mr. Bradley, plays a big part again in this volume. He still is the mentor that Darcy needs and is pivotal in helping him see things without prejudice. This character that Ms. Grace has created is one I much love and of whom I would like to read again. 

    Louisa Bingley is unmarried but betrothed. Her personality is much improved and even likable. Mary has a much bigger role and a good one. It was great to see her happy and having good things happen to her for a change. Some of the other characters are matched up much differently than in the original book, but it made for fun reading. I loved the allusions to a relationship that might be developing for Kitty! You will never guess the fellow and I won’t spoil the surprise! 

    Darcy and Lizzy have misunderstandings of which their relationship is renowned. That makes the understanding between them all the better when it does happen. Toward the end it gets extremely intense. I couldn’t put the book down.  Anyone that loves P & P retellings will want to read this book! It is most excellent! Thank you, Maria Grace, for these three volumes. I am hearing rumors that there may be a fourth! I hope that is true!

    I actually rated this book 4.5 stars out of 5 stars
    PG for no explicit sex 

    I was given an ARC eBook by the author for an honest and fair review.
