2013 Favorite Pride & Prejudice Variation from Austenesque Reviews
Is it true that. . . nothing can be lost that love cannot find?
Jane Austen’s beloved Pride and Prejudice is re-adapted in this Regency tale of love in the face of tragedy. Mr. Darcy is thwarted in his attempt to propose to Elizabeth Bennet at Hunsford when he encounters her minutes after she receives the sad news from Longbourn of her sister’s death. His gallantry and compassion as he escorts her back to Hertfordshire begins to unravel the many threads of her discontent with him. While her family heals from their loss, Darcy must search London for answers — answers that might bring justice but also might just mark the end of his own hopes with Elizabeth.
I find KaraLynne’s characters are always a delight…

The author did a marvelous job in capturing the Bennets’ grief; her interpretation of the characters was just about perfect, in my opinion.

One of the many things I liked about this book was the relationship that developed between Mr. and Mrs. Bennet out of the tragedy they suffered. There are also some insights and plausible explanations for Fanny’s nerves and behavior that I found quite gratifying. Well done, Ms. Mackrory.

This is the kind of novel that is perfect for those readers of Austenesque who approach with caution, as it remains true to Austen’s time and spirit throughout. Brava!

I loved this story! I was struck by how many good things came out of this tragic event. Even though, there is a death in the family and, to that end, some grieving, it wasn’t a heavy book. In fact, I found Bluebells in the Mourning a fun and enjoyable read!
