Overview

Fitzwilliam Darcy is a man with a great many secrets to keep, one involves his sister, and the other involves his heart. The problem is, he cannot just keep the secrets. They demand attention, and action, and in hopeless times, a good man does not always think things through, even when he is desperately trying to do the right thing for the two most important women in his life.

In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Fitzwilliam Darcy arrived in Ramsgate before his sister could leave with George Wickham. Things are not so easily remedied in this two-volume variation.

This story contains scenes of a mature nature between a happily married couple.

I enjoyed Volume 2 but would have liked to have a conclusion to Georgiana's problem. We get the feeling she is still in love with Wickham even though she is trying to be a better person. We have Ferguson who it seems he might have feelings for her but it turns out he had a sister whom his father refused to talk even though she lived in the same house but dies from childbirth and the baby a few days later. What about Samuel? First he refuses to marry her after he finds out she is pregnant but all through the story you wonder if he is falling in love with her. It seems that both were having feelings for each other. The Epilogue left us with the knowledge that Elizabeth gave birth to a son, Richard and Sophie were going to be parents, Manning proposing to Cathy, and with a hint of Caroline meeting up with Walker. Throughout the story Samuel claims he is not ready for marriage leaving me wondering whether he is in love with Georgiana but wants her get over Wickham and grow into a mature woman and is willing to wait for her although nothing is ever said. I would have liked the story to have jumped forward a few years to see what happened to Georgaina, Samuel, Caroline (even though she was seeing Walker), what about Albert did he die and what about the other Bennet ladies. There were too many characters and too many unanswered questions that I would have liked to have seen what happen to them. Maybe there will be another Imperative Volume 3. I would love to see Linda write one.

Ms Wells provides a very different Pride & Predi. variation . Refreshing after reading so many others.

This was a great book. I enjoyed it so much that I was unable to put the book down once I started but I have read all of Linda Wells books and enjoy how she brings the characters to life. I judge a book as being great if the story hold my attention, makes sense, and makes me experience all the emotions the characters feel. I felt sad, I cried, and felt happy. Elizabeth remains the strong character portrayed in P&P as does Darcy.

I really liked the different journey for Darcy and Elizabeth. I really liked the first half of the book. Some of the characters really took on different directions that I would not have imagined. The story introduced much more of the Darcy family.
