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.
