Finding Love in the Middle of a War Zone

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

In her second Austenesque release, author Ginger Monette transports readers to battlefields and field hospitals of The Great War in a touching and emotionally turbulent retelling of Pride and Prejudice. A retelling that is two volumes in length – Darcy’s Hope: Beauty From Ashes and Darcy’s Hope At Donwell Abbey. In this series readers will meet Captain Fitzwilliam Darcy, who, after being rejected by the woman he loves and barely surviving the horrors of the Somme, has built some walls around his heart and has adopted a stone-cold disposition. And the woman who broke his heart is none other than Elizabeth Bennet, a Voluntary Aide Detachment nurse assistant who dreams of one day becoming a doctor and bears a burning resentment for Captain Darcy whom she blames for much of the tragedy and loss her family has faced.
