| Peperuda chapter 14 . 11/3
You know I would love to shake Mr Bennet until his teeth rattled. His daughter has been murdered and he is still shirking be the man of the house. I wish to goodness he would put his book down and be the husband and father he should be.
| Peperuda chapter 7 . 11/3
Mrs Gardiner is worried about Jane because she puts everyone before herself and buries her feelings deeply, but what about Elizabeth who is shouldering so much, is everyone’s strength and often has no one to help with her own problems? I wonder does Elizabeth feel lonely at times? Especially when she can’t rely on her father and her mother is away with the fairies.
| Muchies chapter 43 . 10/31
one of the best stories I've read on here. I couldn't stop thinking about it and rushed to finish it. I cried at how beautifully you wrote about their grief. I did manage to figure out who did it but not until later chapters. truly an amazing book. you should publish! very well done!
| Peperuda chapter 12 . 10/3
Another exceptionally well and sensitively written chapter, the author is excellent in understanding the feelings of the bereaved.
“Women did not attend funerals.” How very strange. Woman gave birth, attended the sick, cleaned the dead, helped the injured (often on a battlefield), did any number of the worst types of jobs, yet were unable to attend a funeral.
| Peperuda chapter 9 . 10/3
Oh my goodness, but that was so terribly sad. I wanted to cry along with everyone else.
| Peperuda chapter 3 . 10/3
A good start to this story, sad about Lydia though, silly, selfish, spoilt, joyful Lydia. Why is Mr Bennet so old?
| Guest chapter 30 . 6/21
They are in mourning, therefore no dancing particularly with guests.
| Guest chapter 19 . 6/21
Of course they wouldn’t help in the kitchen, they are gentlewomen!
| dpennell007 chapter 43 . 5/21
Any romance or affection between Darcy and Elizabeth remained firmly on the back burner, but it was still an exciting page turner of a murder mystery in which the secondary characters were highlighted for a change. Their stories held my attention, and I learned interesting details about funerals during that time.
Nice wrap-up of everyone's lives at the end. Excellent work!
| Peperuda chapter 33 . 4/16
Poor Darcy. I laughed out loud at his predicament and embarrassment. Nicely done and so unexpected.
| Peperuda chapter 21 . 4/16
I've really enjoyed the book so far, however, no one would have said 'suss out' back then. I noticed it in an earlier chapter but was so engrossed I forgot to leave a comment. They would have more likely said 'find out.'
It’s getting late, I have to be up early but no way am I going to stop until I finish.
