    One thought on “Thursday's Child”

    1. By the title I'm sure you have gathered I have a problem with the authors choice of brides for Darcy. The rule is quite simple when I read a P&P what if. I still only want to see a ring placed on one woman's finger. She turned Darcy into some faithless Mr. Wickham. There was little remorse for deflowering Lizzy and then to even consider that Darcy would have the future heir of Pemberely mothered by an unknown woman no better than whore was totally upsetting to me. When I read the reviews I w [...]

    2. This is a twist on Pride and Prejudice which may be difficult for some readers to embrace.In this alternate version Mr. Bennet dies suddenly before the Assembly in Meryton. Thus Mr. Darcy never meets, let alone insults, Elizabeth. Jane barely meets Mr. Bingley and Mr. Collins gets LongbournFollowing the death Jane moves to London and takes a position as a governess for friends of the Gardiners. Lizzie rejects Mr. Collins' proposal to the eternal disappointment of Mrs. Bennet and instead takes a [...]

    3. The last book I read was the Last Waltz by Pat Santarsiero, and I loved it! I had read the description to this book a few times in the past, but always passed on it. I finally decided to give it a chance. I am going to just dive right into what I did and didn't like instead of starting with a synopsis.What I liked - Just like the Last Waltz the story was very different, and intriguing. There were lots of surprises along the way. Caroline and Lady Catherine are wonderful antagonists.This story wa [...]

    4. This is a beautifully written book that captured my heart from the first page. A captivating story that somehow felt real, I felt like I was involved in the story,not just reading it. Yes it has angst, but it is impossible not to get swept away by the honest emotions expressed in this tale. I loved this book-not only the trials and tribulations experienced by ODC, but also the way the story unfolded, the style of writing and the intoxicating effect the themes and plot had on me. What more can I [...]

    5. Another delightful addition to the Pride and Prejudice variations genre. Lately, I just expect them to be good, and I haven't been disappointed in a long time. This one was no exception. The premise of this story is much different and a little more unconventional than many I have read. Elizabeth's father dies before the first assembly, so she never meets Darcy in the traditional way of the original story. Instead she and Jane are forced to take jobs to support themselves and the family. When Lyd [...]

    6. I found this book to be exciting and interesting. It took a different path but yet kept the reader very interested and I really could not put the book down. This book brought me to tears several times but also joy. Isn't that the way life is in reality. I liked the fact that things were brought out in the book that weren't in other books as well as information of Anne and her mother. I won't go into the story as it ruins the plot for future readers but after reading more than 50 variations, I ra [...]

    7. 3.5⭐️I'm a bit torn about this book. It was well written but I just have a hard time condoning infidelity. If the premise was changed a bit and there was some disclosure and involvement with Anne from the beginning, I don't think I would have minded as much. It also felt Caroline got away too easily for all the terrible things she's done.

    8. A page turner!OkLoved this book. the total unexpected plot twist (I stared at the plot revealing page for a minute or so) to the very end, I was riveted. Amazing story!

    9. As other reviews have noted, if you can get past the scandalous nature of Lizzys and Williams initial relationship then you will enjoy the struggle both have of trying to suppress their real feelings for each other and how they get to their happily ever after. My low rating of the novel was only due to the fact that I do not like going to bed with my characters when I'm reading a novel. In this variation of Pride and Prejudice, Bingley meets Jane once before the Meryton assembly but the Bennets [...]

    10. I have read 100s of P&P variations. This story easily makes my Top 10 list.It has adult themes and a few adult scenes. If you have a problem with that, then this story is not right for you. But if you like to read stories that will play in your mind for days after you've read them, then this is exactly the story you might enjoy.In the story, Mr. Bennet dies unexpectedly the week of the Meryton assembly, leaving the Bennet family homeless and practically destitute. Bingley doesn't get to know [...]

    11. This book is a perfect example (in my opinion) of why books ought to have a clear rating system such as movies have. The premise of the novel was far fetched to be sure. More than one female character was flagrantly wanton - in a manner completely outside the moral norms of the Regency era. Because the writing was so engaging I read through to the end. However, I felt like a voyeur by the end of the book. Sadly, I cannot recommend this book.

    12. I really enjoyed this book. First what I didn't like - Darcy being married to Anne. That just seemed wrong. I did like how I didn't have to read much about Wickham and didn't have to have Mrs. Bennet's voice in my head. I liked the way the love scenes were treated and the development of the relationship between Darcy and Lizzy. It was one of those books that sucked me in and I had to keep reading until I was done with it.

    13. Not your typical P&P variation and definitely not for purists but if you have an open mind and want to read a well written, engaging Lizzy and Darcy story this might be for you. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

    14. Jane Austen would have blushed more than once. Do yourself a favor and just read Pride and Prejudice (or read it again!).While it was an interesting story, it would have been better being unconnected to Austen's brilliant work. For there is no comparison.

    15. This book has been on my TBR list for awhile, but I've been avoiding it due to the subject matter. Which, in short, is that Elizabeth (view spoiler)[, for money, agrees to bear Pemberley's heir in secret, since Darcy's wife, Anne, is too ill to do it herself. (hide spoiler)] I decided today that it was time to bite the bullet and at least attempt it, because what was the point of having it on my list if I wasn't ever going to read it?I was surprised to find that I really liked it. This is one of [...]

    16. Beautifully told This is in one of my top ten reads for a P and P story. Well written, wonderful storyline, engaging characterizations fleshed out in detail, I loved it. My heart ached for the difficult situation Elizabeth had been placed in due to Lydia's thoughtless selfishness. Elizabeth, like cream, rose to the top fighting to solve problems and do the right thing in a wrong situation. I held my breath fearing all the obstacles raining on Darcy and Elizabeth. This version was filled with ten [...]

    17. Best P&P variation I've readd I've read dozens of Austen variations. This one began a bit darkly (more late Victorian/Thomas Hardy than early Regency) but developed into a richly-told tale of family love at its core. I feel strongly about not spoiling the plot, so I won't go into detail. I will say though that I think Anne de Bourgh's character is particularly well drawn.

    18. I don't mind the premise of this story, which at least was novel for the JAFF universe. I do mind its resolution, which ranged between implausible, and, oddly, boring, as if there just came a moment when the author decided for forego the angst that was driving the story and shove everything bakc together. The writing was OK. I wanted to feel more for the characters than what I did, which was mainly pity and occasional bafflement.

    19. A FavoriteJust finished reading for the third time. Miss Santarsiero,s variations ( including The Last Waltz) are heartwarming and well done. Wishing for more P and P tales from this author.

    20. AMAZING! I have to confess I have been on a sort of Pride and Prejudice binge as of late, and this ranks among my favorites!! I almost didn't read it because I didn't know if I could stand to see Darcy marry another, but I'm so glad I decided to go for it! It was refreshing to read such a different take on the Pride and Prejudice story as most don't seem to deviate too strongly from the original story line. This was an interesting spin on the story Elizabeth and Darcy being involved in an "arran [...]

    21. This book is well written, it is an easy read. But the premise itself it is such a major breach of my idea of Elisabeth and Darcy characters, that I just could not get over it. It is the reason why it took me so long to read it in the first place). Darcy said that disguise of every sort is his abhorrence (in P&P, not in this variation). Except for when he is cheating on his wife to have an heir that he would somehow take and raise as his legitimate child. He seems to have no issues with taki [...]

    22. Excellent StoryThis book is a very different take on Pride and Prejudice. It may not be to everyone's sensibilities, but I thought it was a wonderful story. The story is set in motion by Lydia's eloping with Wickham, which occurs half a year after Mr Bennet's death. Lizzie takes an extraordinary step to raise the money required to get Wickham to marry Lydia. It is a step that will change her life forever. She meets Mr Darcy, early in the story but their lives take separate paths for some time. I [...]

    23. This book was wonderfully written, if I had to base my rating only on that I would have given the book five stars, but the plot was so far removed from anything even remotely related to Pride and Prejudice that I couldn't make myself believe in it at all, also I found the absurd concatenation of "what ifs" necessary to develop the narration far to contrived and forced. Maybe I could have appreciated the story more if it was an original work, but as a P&P variation for me it just doesn't work [...]

    24. So far, not a good scenario. Lizzy has agreed to have conjugal visits with a wealthy man to bare his heir. Well,we all know it turns out to be Darcy. Darcy has married Anne and the story is just ridiculous. But, I got this free so, I am plugging alongIt is a well written book although I didn't care for the story line. I think it changes up the characters a bit more than most variations I've read.

    25. The book was so wonderful! It was such a suspenseful, exciting love story. I've never read Pride & Prejudice and I know this is only fan-fiction but it was great! I cannot wait to read another book by this author!

    26. I almost didn't read this bc I was hesitant about the premise but read it in a day and was pleasantly surprised. It was tasteful and intriguing
