    One thought on “Cassandra”

    1. “Grief is in two parts. The first is loss. The second is the remaking of life.” Anne RoipheWe are 22% into the book before we ever hear the name Cassandra. The beginning had a very déjà vu feeling of the Meryton Assembly, with an uncomfortable Darcy at a London ball due to his cousin Fitzwilliam trying to get him to dance. Every nuance was similar to canon except he didn’t insult the lady and decided to talk to her instead. That lead to a dance, and from there it was a whirlwind romance, [...]

    2. This story has the wonderful premise of Darcy as a widower with a daughter, having married for love years before he ever meets Elizabeth. It is told from his point of view, moving from crippling grief almost to the point of madness, finally coming more or less to his senses and trying to live again, resisting Lady Catherine's renewed insistence that he marry Anne, vowing never to remarry at all, and then, of course, falling in love with Elizabeth but resisting it because of both her societal inf [...]

    3. Another great variation by an author who never disappoints. It is a well written novel with a different twist where Darcy finds love the second time which he thought would never happen. At first when I purchased the novel, I thought it was about Jane Austen's sister, Cassandra. Low and behold it was about his daughter by his first wife.It takes someone special to love another's child and Elizabeth was that special someone! It proves that time heals all wounds, helps to understand loss, and helps [...]

    4. In this variation on P&P it may be difficult to accept but Darcy does meet and fall in love with a soul mate other than Elizabeth Bennet. I am not giving anything away here; you have to read book descriptions before you make a decision to buy. And we are told much about “Act 1” in which he meets, marries and then loses his first love. That same book description aka reader feedback tells of a promise he makes to his wife and of the siren call of Bingley's wife's sister and the last paragr [...]

    5. This is a very different P&P what if. Firstly it contains almost no Pride Nor Prejudice. Secondly it is set in a universe where Darcy is a widower when he meets Lizzy. Now that alone isn't so unusual, but his bride isn't his sickly, cousin but a vivacious young lady named Cassandra.When he meets Miss Elizabeth Bennet at the home of her sister, Mrs. Jane Bingley, he is suddenly taken with her. It has been 2 1/2 years since his wife died and he isn't looking for love; but can't resist the char [...]

    6. CassandraQuite an interesting P&P vagary. In this alternative Darcy is married way before he ever meets Elizabeth Bennet. Unfortunately for him his wife dies in child Birth and he is desolate for he loved her dearly and wishes to never marry again! So what is to happen to our beloved couple? Well they do meet through Bingley except Bingley is already married to the lovely Jane Bennet. This story is really the journey of Darcy learning to go on and to learn to love and trust love again. There [...]

    7. I quite enjoyed this. Although it is strange to think of Darcy being married to someone other than Elizabeth, his character in this story is little different to the way he is portrayed in the original. There is very little angst in this story - probably the most disturbing aspect is the way Darcy ignores his child, although it is clear why. I would say it is a charming,very human story with Caroline Bingley providing the comic relief.My only real complaint is that the epilogue rounds up the char [...]

    8. Cassandra is a very lovely story, but what I most enjoy reading in JAFF is a story that varies from the original Pride and Prejudice, but still has the basic foundation of Darcy shunning Elizabeth because of her social status and lack of wealth, but eventually realizing his love for her overcomes his pride. And, I expect to see Elizabeth showing some sort of prejudice against him. I then struggle to determine what rating to give when the story is well-written and enjoyable, but these fundamental [...]

    9. To start off the blurb for this book is very misleading. I thought that the young woman he married when he was twenty-five was Elizabeth and that he falls in love with another woman in this book. It's actually quite the reverse. So the name of the book refers to the name of his daughter and his late wife. Of course she is never mentioned by name except when he states that both of them have the same name.There really isn't a antagonist unless you count Caroline and she's more of an annoyance than [...]

    10. CassandraA delightful variation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. While Jann Rowland's story is very different from Austen's, our favorite couple is foremost in his story. Caroline Bingley was even more obnoxious than normal and finally put in her place by Charles, Hurst, and Darcy not to mention Elizabeth. Wickham was in this story too, but only the "elopement" with Lydia was covered. The quick action of Bingley, Darcy, and Colonel Fitzwilliam stopped the elopement from happening. Lydia rec [...]

    11. In this version Darcy meets Elizabeth when he is a widower with a 3 year daughter. Bingley has married Jane and Elizabeth is living with them in London for the season. Elizabeth is the first woman who makes him feel anything resembling attraction or love after his first wife. She even helps him overcome his reluctance around his own daughter whose eyes haunt him as the eyes of his wife. I love how Darcy is portrayed in his novel! He goes from dejected after his wife's death to guilt over his rel [...]

    12. Good startI , fortunately don't have a clue as to how one recovers from the loss of his spouse. Darcy was married to a great woman similar to Elizabeth. His wife dies in childbirth as is common.He meets Elizabeth away from Hertfordshire and falls in love.What is incomplete is where is Caroline and Lady Catherine. Both seem to disappear. We see NOTHING of the Bennet family except for a brief moment with Mr Bennet searching for the most ridiculous child on earth.

    13. A bit tediousI found the interactions between Darcy and Caroline Bingley and between Darcy and Lady Catherine de Bourgh fairly engaging. Otherwise I found the novel to be a bit of a yawn and skipped quite a bit.

    14. Misnamed, I feltYou get quite a way into the book before discovering who Cassandra is. I wasn't really feeling a deep connection between Darcy and Elizabeth.

    15. This book is an interesting diversion from Pride and Prejudice. In this novel, Darcy married in an earlier season, but lost his wife due to complications while giving birth to their daughter, Cassandra. Thus Darcy ends up missing time at Netherfield, and Georgiana escapes involvement with George Wickham.I enjoyed the fleshing out of minor characters, like Colonel Fitzwilliam and his family. It makes you wish that Austen had included them more fully in the original novel. Even the few original ch [...]

    16. I quite enjoyed this. Although it is strange to think of Darcy being married to someone other than Elizabeth, his character in this story is little different to the way he is portrayed in the original. There is very little angst in this story - probably the most disturbing aspect is the way Darcy ignores his child, although it is clear why. I would say it is a charming,very human story with Caroline Bingley providing the comic relief.My only real complaint is that the epilogue rounds up the char [...]

    17. 4.5I didn't think I'd enjoy Elizabeth not being Darcy's first wife but I really enjoyed it. I liked the the authors portrayal of Caroline Bingley and Lydia Bennet. A good read if you like P&P variations.
