Georgiana Darcy's Diary by Anna Elliott

Georgiana Darcy's Diary: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice Continued by Anna Elliott

Summary from Goodreads:
Mr. Darcy's younger sister searches for her own happily-ever-after.

The year is 1814, and it's springtime at Pemberley. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy have married. But now a new romance is in the air, along with high fashion, elegant manners, scandal, deception, and the wonderful hope of a true and lasting love.

Shy Georgiana Darcy has been content to remain unmarried, living with her brother and his new bride. But Elizabeth and Darcy's fairy-tale love reminds Georgiana daily that she has found no true love of her own. And perhaps never will, for she is convinced the one man she secretly cares for will never love her in return. Georgiana's domineering aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, has determined that Georgiana shall marry, and has a list of eligible bachelors in mind. But which of the suitors are sincere, and which are merely interested in Georgiana's fortune? Georgiana must learn to trust her heart and rely on her courage, for she also faces the return of the man who could ruin her reputation and spoil a happy ending, just when it finally lies within her grasp.

Free e-book for Nook

3.5 Stars

My Review:
I got this ebook for free for my Nook.  I like free.  I also like all things Jane Austen related, especially Pride and Prejudice.  Some sequels/retellings are better than others.

This was an enjoyable read.  I liked Georgiana and the growth she had within the book.  However, like some other continuations, some characters displayed behavior I would not think of them exhibiting.  In other words, I say, "Lady Catherine De Bourgh would never do that!"  

As much as I liked the book, there were some things like that above which bothered me.  

Warnings: Mention of adultery, possible mention of homosexuality (maybe, I may have interpreted the conversation incorrectly).

I would let my 14 year old read this book.
