Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Maria Hamilton created a novel with scenes every Pride and Prejudice fan longed to read in Jane Austen's version. In MR. DARCY AND THE SECRET OF BECOMING A GENTLEMAN, the readers are privy to Mr. Darcy's tormented thoughts as he struggles with his all consuming love for Lizzie, while at the same time coming to terms with his personal flaws that led to her rejection. This is a novel that even Miss Austen would heartily approve of!

The "what if" story between Darcy and Elizabeth is a relaxing continuation of sorts, for anyone who enjoys Pride and Prejudice and likes to read other retellings

Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is a novel rife with misunderstandings, and Maria Hamilton kicks it up a notch in her retelling of the beloved classic novel.

True to the Regency era with its attention to the period's constraints on society,
Mr. Darcy and the Secret of Becoming a Gentleman is also a timeless study of how easily two people can misunderstand each other, especially when those people are in love.

Much in the writing style of romance author Abigail Reynold's, Maria Hamilton clearly has a handle on the ruminations and passions of both Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet.

What a fantastic debut novel from Maria Hamilton! Her skillful writing and unique twists had me enthralled from page one.

This is a novel that even Miss Austen would heartily approve of!

I was highly entertained and loved every minute of it.

I loved this book from start to finish. It was the perfect marriage of romance and humor. I can't wait for Maria Hamilton's next adaptation.

Readers will enjoy the fact that Hamilton stayed true to Austen's original tale.

    Great Book!

    This was a great Pride and Prejudice variation with good character development that allows us to see some characters in greater depth or just see more of some of the characters we all love.

    Loved it!!!! Will read again!

    This was a great Pride and Prejudice retelling. I loved getting to read in detail about Mr. Darcy and what his thoughts and feelings were on things. I think he might be the perfect man...sigh. One of the best spinoffs out there because it has really pretty writing, i thought. I could picture everything.

    I'm giving this book 3 stars because for the first 200 pages and a few select scenes afterward with Caroline Bingley, it was very good. After that it became plodding like it needed an editor. If you could believe that Mr. Darcy was a suddenly verbose, weak character who apologized for being unable to keep his hands off of Elizabeth every other chapter, and Elizabeth would enter Darcy's bedroom for premarital sex, then this is the book for you. At least this girl wrote a book.
