A re-read of this Pride and Prejudice sequel - General Fitzwilliam has been left to care for his children after the death of his wife. Devastated by her death the General takes his family to Pemberley, hoping to find peace.

The writing style was so easy to read as the story moved along. I loved the story, the new characters bu

I would have given this 5 stars if there was a love story in the book but there wasn't one. It seems that 30 years of marriage wasn't enough to induce General Fitzwilliam to fall in love with Mary. I don't like it when Mary has been made to settle once again.

Enjoyed and amazed

Oh my! This was incredibly written. I appreciate the thoughtfulness that went I to this story. Darcy and Elizabeth were secondary in this story. Richard and Mary were the main characters. Richard and Mary walked a thin line, that only a couple did not want, to find happiness. Mary helped Richard to come to terms and move on from the death of his wife. Loved how Mary loved Richards children as her own. Enjoyed this whole book and highly recommended

Very sweet story, but ends too abruptly
I really loved this book until the end. The story of Mary and Richard was very sweet, but it all ends far too abruptly without including their lives together as a married couple. It’s also hard to believe Mary would have had no children. This could have have been much longer. The epilogue was too sad. Well written story otherwise.

So I liked this book better than it's predecessor. It's a sweet "almost-love" story about Mary and Colonel Fitzwilliam. It's well written, sweet and interesting. My advice though...don't read the epilogue :) I won't tell you why cause I don't want to spoil anything. Just throwing it out there.

The book itself was written well but I did not like it. I should have read the reviews but I didn't. What I did do though was read the end sometime in the middle of the story. I quit after that, I wanted a love story and this is not one. I hate that Mary had to settle to never being loved.

My review contains a spoiler

I did enjoy the book and the characters until I got to the end . That was not only unexpected I felt it was unnecessary for it to end with the death of Fitzwilliam .
