26255892Four Days in April by Maria Grace

Genre: Jane Austen Fan Fiction

Summary from Goodreads:

Two letters. Four Days. Everything changes.

After offering a most disastrous proposal of marriage and receiving a rebuke, he will never forget, Fitzwilliam Darcy writes Elizabeth Bennet an equally memorable letter.

What if she answers it with one of her own?

My Review

This book opens right after Elizabeth rejects Darcy’s proposal at Rosing from Darcy’s PoV. It was interesting to be in Darcy’s head the second after his proposal was rejected. I thought the author did Darcy and Elizabeth’s voices very well and kept them true to the characters of the original novel. I thought all the characters were true to form and was very glad of that. I hate my JAFF with characters that have nothing in common with the ones I love. I loved the plot of this book and found the idea for this story both unique yet simple. Usually, short stories seem unfinished and leave you wanting more. This story doesn’t do that. It doesn’t feel too short or too long. The plot isn’t too ambitious for a short story and really couldn’t be told any other way IMO. The writing was good but not great. This story is the perfect length for a quick read while relaxing with a cup of coffee or tea. If you love JAFF true to the characters, short stories, and great what-ifs then I highly recommend this story.
