really liked it
bookshelves: american, modern-austen-types

I usually have a hard time with this kind of Austen related work but after awhile this book grew on me. I'm not usually one into much Civil War history. I did however come to really enjoy the characters in this book based on Pride and Prejudice characters. I loved the map in the front of the book. I enjoyed the characters for the most part: Catherine Burroughs (B&R Ranch) bad gal, Anne Burroughs (likeable and surprising romance), William Darcy good guy, Gaby Darcy (sweet), Jose' Estrada (good guy), Hill, Deputy Jones, Father Joseph, Sheriff Lucas (Lucas in a role I never expected), Charlotte Lucas (a good marriage), Judge Phillips (another unexpected character change), Margaret Reynolds (former slave), Rev. Henry Tilney (different since he's from a whole different Austen book), Sally Younge (still bad), Thomas Bennet (has some gumption), Fanny Bennet, Elizabeth Jane, Mary, Kathy and Lily Bennet, Dr. Charles Bingley (aw), Richard Fitzwilliam (trailboss - not sure I could get his personality here), Kid Denny (wow he's a bad guy now), Billy Collins (hahaha), Thorpe (another character from a different novel), George (still a very bad guy), and last but not least Caroline Bingley (pushy, pushy, pushy). There were just a couple parts I could have lived without. The faked KKK scene was a bit much for me.
