Genre: Pride and Prejudice Retelling

Summery from Goodreads

A Tale of Uncharted Love on the Open Seas

In this enchanting and highly original retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet sets out for the new world aboard the grand ship Pemberley’s Promise. She’s prepared for an uneventful voyage until a chance encounter with the handsome, taciturn Mr. Darcy turns her world upside down.

When Elizabeth falls ill, Darcy throws convention overboard in a plan that will bind them to each other more deeply than he ever could have imagined. But the perils of their ocean voyage pale in comparison to the harsh reality of society’s rules that threaten their chance at happiness. When they return to the lavish halls of England, will their love survive?

My Review

Elizabeth and Darcy have a chance meeting 2 years before they meet again sailing on Darcy’s ship Pemberley’s Promise. Elizabeth is one her way to visit her aunt and uncle and Darcy to retrieve his sister. Darcy and Elizabeth’s Voyage to love is just as delightful in this book as the original. Original lines and scenes are re-imagined in unique and realistically original ways. You can easily see these conversations taking place. New problems and old plaque are couple on there way to happiness. I was very happy to see both Darcy and Elizabeth’s feelings within a scene and it is not just being told from one of there PoVs. All the characters are true to the ones in the original novel right down to the wicked Wickham and snobbish fake Miss Bingley. This book may be 500 pages but I found it going by very fast and couldn’t believe it seemed so short. I recommend this book to all fans of Pride and Prejudice.

Rating:5 out of 5

Content Rating:PG(sensual kisses and embraces)

Keeper:YES

Happy Reading
