A Profound and Poignant Retelling of Pride and Prejudice

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

(Note: This is the second book in Ginger Monette’s Great War Romance duo, and while the author provides enough details and background for readers to learn about events from the first book, I would strongly recommend reading Darcy’s Hope: Beauty from Ashes first for complete understanding and appreciation.)

In the second book of this Pride and Prejudice retelling, Darcy and Elizabeth have just confessed their feelings and are happily anticipating their reunion in two months when Captain Darcy has leave. But due to some news Elizabeth receives, she believes her character is being called into question and that she is an assumed spy. Heartbroken and terrified, Elizabeth feels it best to protect Darcy, his family, and his reputation by disappearing without a trace. When Darcy finds out about Elizabeth’s disappearance he is devastated yet determined to find her. But unfortunately, Captain Darcy does not have the freedom to do what he wants when he wants, as he is in the midst of serving his country and consequently is sent back out onto the battlefield.

We have been working on our Netherfield a little bit this past month.

 

We bought and put together a new TV stand and coffee table.

We hung up and put pins in our travel map (our lack of pins is showing us we have so many more places we must go!) Continue reading »
