Editorial Reviews

Gioia Recommends - Gioia Rec
Simonsen’s story is a marvelous depiction of how the war impacted everyone it touched. Darcy and Elizabeth are both among the walking wounded… privately holding on to a brief moment of peace they each found during one of the blackest days of the war. I love the way they interact here. So much of canon is present in this story’s plot and characterizations, but there’s more to it than that. It’s a beautifully healing tale and it moved me to tears.
My Own Little Corner of the World - Erlynn I.
I was always timid about picking up any of these P&P retellings where the author puts the couple in a different time period or location. I don't know why since I love the what if's and even enjoy the crazy vampire and zombie ones. I think because I was afraid that without the Georgian background it would somehow miss the romantic atmosphere and chivalrous characters; I thought wrong. Thanks to Mary Simonsen, I think I can now branch off even further and deeper into my Darcy obsession.

    Good Read..

    I liked the more modern day take on Jane Austen's timeless classic. It had me riveted from beginning to end; laughing and crying, too. Very good read, worth every penny..!

    While this story is set after WWI, the topic is very applicable to today. The devastation of war is timeless and unchanged. Warriors and those who care for them return damaged more than physically. This story even though the characters are named Elizabeth and William can be found through out history and today. This story really hit me as the daughter of a WWI medic and a former Army nurse I felt this story on many levels. Read it ...it is good for the soul.

    Enjoyed the P&P story in a differnet era, WW1

    I always enjoy reading P&P in different eras so as to see how the main characters have grown. This book is no different. I always enjoy seeing how Elizabeth would be in an time where she could leave the narrow world of the orginial P&P and be a more developed person.
