I enjoyed this book. I particularly liked the development of Caroline B and Lady Catherine, both consistently with the OT.

And you must meet Darcy's cousin Philip, who IS the reserved, haughty man that Darcy is not.

Dear Mr. Darcy retells the story of Austen's Pride and Prejudice in epistolary fashion. Through the correspondence of our hero, Fitzwilliam Darcy, to his sweet sister, his haughty aunt, his cousin, the reprehensible George Wickham and others, we get to see more of his thought processes and therefore more insight into his character. The story begins with the death of Darcy's father, four years before Pride and Prejudice begins. It also shares the correspondence of other beloved characters such as the Bennet sisters, flushing them out more fully and some characters she has added and embellished for interests' sake. Although we know how the story will unfold, Dear Mr. Darcy is a fresh and appealing look at an always popular classic and is sure to please fans of historical novels and Austenites alike. Amanda Grange is a British author who has 20 published novels including six Jane Austen novels. Reviewed by RC
