Falling for Mr. Darcy por KaraLynne Mackrory

Una variación realmente encantadora, llena de romanticismo de momentos de mucha ternura. Hay ricas descripciones del entorno, de las interacciones entre Elizabeth y Darcy, de los pensamientos de los personajes, todos son muy entrañables.
Mackrory escribe la historia con mucha calidez. Es verdaderamente exquisito leer los diálogos de todos los personajes, en especial de Elizabeth y Darcy, es como si un halo onírico te envolviera y te hace disfrutar de la historia.

Falling For Mr. Darcy by KaraLynn Mackrory is an adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Mackrory explores the idea of what would happen if Mr. Darcy let go of his pride and told people about George Wickham's scandalous behavior before Wickham could charm his way into the hearts of Merryton, if Darcy never interfered with Bingley and Jane's relationship, and if he behaved in "a more gentleman-like manner" towards Elizabeth. You might think that by doing these things, it would eliminate any problems in the story. However Darcy's honorable actions causes a whole new set of problems.
Wickham becomes desperate and his actions more deplorable than in the original Pride and Prejudice. Darcy is still enamored with Elizabeth but is torn between what he thinks is his duty and what his heart wants. I love that Mackrory makes use of some of the minor characters from P&P in this book. Mr Bennet is his usual witty self, Mr. Collins is still abhorrent, and Colonel Fitzpatrick is still very charming. The author does play around with their story lines a bit to make everything more interesting.
This is a really good adaptation of the original story. I really like the direction that the author took this book. I've often wondered what would happen if Darcy had done things differently. Mackrory answered my questions and more in Falling For Mr. Darcy. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 193600920X, Paperback)

In this Regency adaptation of Jane Austen's beloved Pride and Prejudice, the simple truth is proven that sometimes a gentleman never knows his heart until a lady comes along to introduce it to him. When Mr. Darcy encounters Elizabeth Bennet injured after a fall, his concern for her welfare cracks the shell of his carefully guarded heart and a charming man emerges. Elizabeth sees an appealing side of him she never believed possible from the stoic, proud master of Pemberley. They find the simple gentlemanly act of assisting her home will best both Mr. Darcy's resolve to keep his heart safe and Elizabeth's conviction that this is the last man on earth she might have ever been prevailed upon to marry. Soon, falling for Mr. Darcy becomes a real possibility.
