    1 thought on “Letter from Ramsgate

    1. While I read this as a Work in Progress a few months ago and loved it I must say that one feeling repeated itself as I read the published edition That ise desire to reach into the pages and first hit Darcy upside the head and to then shake him The comments from other readers of that WIP agreed with my opinion And then some of us were so upset with his officious, his unreasonable, accusations that we were quick to say that Darcy does not deserve forgiveness, that he must crawl back to Elizabeth a [...]

    2. There are very few Pride and Prejudice variations based on the premise that Elizabeth and Georgiana meet before the attempted elopement and Ramsgate, and this book starts out beautifully Mrs Younge s job interview with Mr Darcy begins with just a hint that her interest in him may be than professional, but he recognizes her poise and easy manners and is sympathetic to her reduced financial circumstances, so he hires her on instinct Ms Lauder does a wonderful job giving Mrs Young s character far [...]

    3. For there to be betrayal, there would have to have been trust first Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games 4.5 starsLet me just say that the cover is most excellent I bought the book for that alone, and of course, the reviews and suggestions from friends Reading a story about Ramsgate is hard business It is a difficult time in the lives of our hero, Mr Darcy and his younger sister Georgiana During that idyllic time at the seaside, we, unfortunately, expose a villain or two, and subject poor Miss Darc [...]

    4. Letters From Ramsgate is a Pride Prejudice variation story that actually starts the variation before the original events of Austen s tale and in so doing highlights new characters, new elements, and yet still has the flavor of pride, prejudice, and what I love about the original.I think anyone can pick this up and enjoy it, but I do think that having a solid idea of the original story this is based on would do you one better.Fitzwilliam Darcy has the co guardianship of his younger sister twelve [...]

    5. Hmmm Well This story spans a long period of time from before Georgiana s aborted elopement to after Jane Bingley s marriage At first it seems a tale of less Pride and less Prejudice but it is really a story of repressed emotions and insanity.In this PP What if Lizzy and her aunt Gardiner travel to Ramsgate to stay at the home of a childhood friend of Mrs Gardiner s Lady Emilia Lady Emilia is quite an eccentric sort of spinster woman who has salons for women to discuss topics of the day And being [...]

    6. Letter from RamsgateWhat a holiday at Ramsgate Elizabeth and her Aunt Gardiner had with Lady Edwina, Madeleine s childhood friend Lady Edwina introduces Madeleine and Elizabeth to Georgiana Darcy and her companion, Mrs Isabel Younge Georgiana and Elizabeth begin a relationship with one another progressing to sharing secrets Elizabeth s secret is not terrible one she s ambidextrous However Georgiana s secret is definitely not good and Elizabeth thinking Isabel Younge is taking care of her charge [...]

    7. She would not betray her trust Rating 4.5 out of 5 starsWhat if Elizabeth Bennet met and became friends with Georgiana Darcy in Ramsgate What if, after hearing about Georgiana s attachment to Wickham and plans to secretly elope, Elizabeth wrote an anonymous letter alerting Mr Darcy What if Darcy and Elizabeth meet later on in Hertfordshire with previous knowledge of each other and have a much better first impression In her second inventive and creative Pride and Prejudice variation, Suzan Lauder [...]

    8. Actually, I have contradictory feelings about this books While I was really enthrilled about the story, to the point that I couldn t put the book down till the end, I can t say I really liked this Darcy.In the original PP, both character made mistakes and almost every variation I read explores this aspect that both can make mistakes and both can learn from their mistakes But here, Elizabeth didn t really make any mistake Darcy was unfair and made grave accusations, in a very important moment But [...]

    9. Suzan Lauder s latest novel, Letter From Ramsgate, is a variation of Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice that imagines what might have happened had Elizabeth Bennet been the one to interfere with Mr Wickham s attempt to elope with Georgiana Darcy to gain access to her fortune Elizabeth and her aunt spend the summer in Ramsgate with her aunt s childhood friend, Lady Edwina, and in the midst of enjoying the ladies tales of their mischievous adventures as girls and taking part in Lady Edwina s ladies [...]

    10. Although this was an interesting and enjoyable variation, there is just something about it that doesn t sit right with me After thinking about it, I determined I never felt Darcy redeemed himself adequately.In this variation, Elizabeth is in Ramsgate and plays a critical role in getting Darcy to arrive in time to stop Georgiana from eloping with Wickham She and Darcy become immediate friends, and slowly begin to fall in love However, when Darcy does propose at Hunsford, and the two are happily c [...]

    11. Loved it, loved it, loved it I was apprehensive at the start, hoping this wasn t a piece entirely set on secondary characters No worries, E D make their debuts shortly and the wild ride begins My reviews, however few they may be, will never condense the story Instead they strive to pinpoint what makes a book special The gems of this work are the special moments the author penned with longing and knowledge The tinkling jar, the coin towards the end.ose moments helped me feel a part of the romance [...]

    12. I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book and I loved every minute of it Honestly, this felt like reading Jane Austen herself as if I was reading an alternate draft of PRIDE PREJUDICE The changes made in the story were so clever and so well done that the whole book was a delight to read One of the best PP adaptations I ve ever read

    13. Style, substance, and just the right amount of heat I think this is author Suzan Lauder s best yet Pitch perfect prose and enchanting from beginning to end No little angst when Elizabeth hides her heroic actions to safeguard her new friend Georgiana or when Darcy willfully follows his pride and not seeing the truth About 3 4 of the way in I was hoping for the happily ever after but Lauder twists the fiction a little longer making the resolution all the sweeter Easy for me to recommend.

    14. I didn t think that Ms Lauder could top her debut book Alias Thomas Bennet but she s done it This book is a new favorite for me I love how even though Lizzy had connections to nobility even though it was through her Aunt Gardiner she still wasn t good enough for Darcy Granted throughout most of this book I wanted to strangle Darcy because he is so dense His reasoning that since Lizzy has sympathy for Mrs Younge she must have been in on the scheme between Wickham and Georgie s companion And becau [...]

    15. This novel explores the world of Elizabeth and Darcy, adding some new and entirely plausible characters and storylines The people in the book feel fresh and real, and the dialogue is very natural in spite of the author s diligent effort to use the vocabulary of the period Being Canadian I was pleased to see the early history of Nova Scotia playing a role in the plot.

    16. Superb Plot Development Ms Lauder has spent several years pulling together this remarkable novel which offers richly detailed portraits of our top characters The depth of emotion is powerful and all grow separately and together to a satisfying conclusion.

    17. Add this to your Must Read list When I re read Pride Prejudice as an adult, my first impression of Mr Darcy was that he was socially retarded That impression came back to mind as I read this story.But first I believe that most PP readers wonder what exactly happened in Ramsgate between Georgiana Darcy and George Wickham Jane Austen leaves this episode rather vague so we are left to our own imaginations Until now Suzan Lauder gives us every smarmy detail of the nefarious plot and its players.Fort [...]

    18. Thank you to my friend for gifting me this book Great book, I enjoyed it very much It is a variation of Pride and Prejudice and follows the original story line, with enough changes that it becomes a new and enjoyable story The author has great writing style and is careful of detail The descriptions, the dialogue, and the use of words and phrases specific to the time period and area create a very authentic novel Congratulations on another great book

    19. Suzan Lauder s Letter from Ramsgate is an intriguing tale spun around the characters of Darcy, his sister, Georgiana, and his love interest, Elizabeth Bennet Suzan adds a new character to the story, a Mrs Isabel Younge, who has been having an affair with Mr.Wickham How the author weaves in this new person while keeping fairly close to the original plot of Pride and Prejudice is very clever Her examination of Darcy s pride, inner torment and longing for Lizzy kept me interested where other books [...]

    20. This was a wonderful book I loved the friendship between Elizabeth and Georgiana It set the tone for Darcy and Elizabeth to know of each other before they met and for a nearly deep seated hate of Wickham Darcy s concerns about status and money have an additional source As they learn to trust, they find their love.

    21. Error is a hardy plant it flourishes in every soil Martin F TupperI found it hard to consistently like this Darcy.Role reversal is epidemic in this story and Darcy s capacity to willfully misunderstand is exceeded only by his obstinacy in clinging to his misunderstandings Of course, fault lies on both sides but Elizabeth s errors have a noble source than Darcy s.But I m writing this at 1 40AM because once I began reading, I was unable to stop without finishing the story.Very well written with a [...]

    22. Just like a cup of tea, it was warm and satisfying A treat for lovers of historical fiction, sees the return of Suzan Lauder whose debut novel Alias Thomas Bennet was an absolute knock out and I really do recommend reading it In Letters from Ramsgate, it s lies and secrets which turn inside out, trip up the unwary, cause mayhem, and change lives A twist in Pride and Prejudice has Elizabeth in Ramsgate when Wickham is conspiring at his best to destroy Darcy through Georgiana Elizabeth meets Georg [...]

    23. I must admit that it took me one third of the book to really get into it, but then it became a roller coaster of deep emotions that didn t let me put down the book to sleep at night until I finished it I liked the premise that Lizzy and Georgiana were friends before all the Ramsgate events I loved the playful banters and friendship between Lizzy and Mr Darcy I found Lady Edwina delicious, and I wished Jane Austen had created someone like her in PP I didn t see the little suprise in the epilogue [...]

    24. I liked the premise of this one, but some of the angst seemed forced who brings up bad memories when someone has just proposed to you Yes, I accept, and remember that horrible thing that happened to your family last year I think Jane Austen s Lizzy Bennet would probably defend herself rather than hold herself to a promise that she s technically already broken Overall, it was an easy fun read, and I enjoyed it.

    25. It had me feeling all of the feels.Oh my goodness So many twists and turns It almost had me in tears at a couple places It was beautifully written and I could not have been happier I d definitely read this book again

    26. Good ReadThis is a really good read I loved the surprise causally thrown in in the epilogue I would recommend this book.

    27. This was truly wonderful An original idea with all of the character consistency you would wish for, I adore this novel I have read over 100 variations in the last few months, but this one was the first to make me cry.t once, but twice It also gave me butterflies than once, and a healthy, heavy stomach drop at one point Whew I have never read an Elizabeth knows Georgiana first variation before, but I always enjoy the possibility of the weight of Elizabeth s influence affection on Georgiana s Ram [...]

    28. This was a creative way to dispatch Wickham And Darcy s Lizzy replacement who doesn t want to marry FD Very unique Kudos to Suzan for a new twist on some ideas
