My Cousin Caroline builds on two well liked characters in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Colonel Fitzwilliam, cousin to Fitzwilliam Darcy, who had been portrayed as an agreeable and attractive gentleman who only lacked wealth to be considered an eligible bachelor discovers, woos and marries Caroline Gardiner, cousin to Elizabeth Bennett Darcy.

In Pride and Prejudice, the Gardiners stood out as a sensible and refined middle class family, the family that Elizabeth enjoyed visiting and

La première chose qui me vient à l'esprit après cette lecture c'est : pourquoi ?

Pourquoi me suis-je infligée ce roman alors que les 5 premiers m'ont déplu ?

Pourquoi l'auteure a-t-elle cru bon de faire un tome axé sur Caroline et qui reprend tout ce qu'elle nous a déjà fait subir dans les 5 tomes précédents sans rien apporter de nouveau ? (pardon, les 10 dernières pages avancent l'histoire)

Et surtout, pourquoi fait-elle ça aux personnages de Jane Austen ?

Vous l'aurez donc compris, je n'ai pas

My Cousin Caroline is the sixth in the Pemberley Chronicles series by RAC. I think, out of all the novels in the series so far, I fell in love with this one.

Caroline Gardiner, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs Edward Gardiner (of Pride and Prejudice) is the main focus of this novel, following her from the age of fifteen years old. My Cousin Caroline drew me in so much; a think more than the other novels. I think in many ways this is because I have always been interested in the life of Caroline, sinc

Pride & Prejudice is a favorite of mine, so I read lots of "sequels." This is part of a series, one of the better ones I have read. It focuses on Caroline Gardiner, one of the children of Elizabeth's Uncle Gardiner in P&P.

Fantastic! I loved every moment of this story. Caroline is a woman after my own heart, as is Isabella. Yet another page turner from Ms. Collins. And, I must admit, I think dear Jane Austen would have been very much a fan of Ms. Collins' series.

One of the better P&P spin offs. It started out slow but the story progressed nicely and was written in true Austen style. I enjoyed it very much.

“It was not horrible, but rather tedious and covered too many years and people too fast so that you could not much care about the characters.”
