At first I had doubts. The start of this novel seemed to be the beginning of a lightweight story. But as I read on, the the characters grew in depth. And the story engaged. The weaving of history into the plot was skillfully done.

One of the best time travels I have read in a while! Plus who can resist reading about the Darcys.

Mary Simonsen’s ability to create wonderful love stories never ceases to amaze! This time she takes modern-day Beth Hannigan and transports her to Pemberley, 1826. When Beth awakes to find she has taken over the body of Elizabeth Darcy, she not only must try to find her way back home, but also find out what brought her to Pemberley in the first place. While there, Beth faces many challenges any modern-day lady would encounter: undergarments- or lack thereof, jargon disparities, lack of plumbing, primitive hygienic care, in addition to the different roles women played nearly 200 years ago. Through these events, Simonsen also provides the reader with bits of comic relief. The humor and tender scenes here are well-balanced. While reading, I found myself chuckling, smiling, speculating, and even tearing up at times. I love a book that can elicit a wide array of emotions from me, which Becoming Elizabeth Darcy afforded. In addition, the story line kept me asking questions and imagining what would happen next. Like the book description says, if you enjoy Lost in Austen, Becoming Elizabeth Darcy is a must read!
