This book was masterfully written. The plot was believable, the characters were compelling and the prose was eloquent and composed with such style that I truly felt transported into the world of the pre-Elizabeth Darcys. The Austen characters were kept very true to themselves, with just enough backstory added to enrich the storyline in unexpected ways. The love story that evolves for Clare even informs us to some extent as to Lady C's motives for the future abuse of Elizabeth (who has not yet made an appearance in this prequel.) This delightful story is worth the read! While it doesn't venture into the actual timeline of P&P, it does expound on the significant events leading up to the arrival of a certain gentleman from Derbyshire on the scene in Hertfordshire. I highly recommend this book! - DJ (
