#Romance Writing Reviews

 

This week I am talking very briefly about a couple of romance novels by the celebrated author of Historical Romance Novels, Ginger Monette—about love in WW1.

Ginger has captured the period well and has avoided littering the books with Americanisms as so many authors do when writing about Britain and the British.

The books reference war matters enough to fit the romance around them without focusing on the harshness and horror of war. The two novels can be read perfectly well as stand alone books, as neither is dependent on the other.

I hope to do a character interview of one of the main characters shortly but in the meantime here are the Amazon Reviews I wrote.

Darcy’s Hope ~ Beauty from Ashes: A World War 1 Pride & Prejudice Variation (Great War Romance)
5.0 out of 5 stars An epic tale of wartime love., 7 Feb. 2017

This review is from: Darcy’s Hope ~ Beauty from Ashes: A World War 1 Pride & Prejudice Variation (Great War Romance) (Kindle Edition)

This is the first book I have read by this author and it certainly won’t be the last. Ginger has captured the essence of WW1 brilliantly and her characters are interesting and believable. The book doesn’t hit you with gory details of the war, but does not shy away making us aware how grim war is. The tension between Darcy and Elizabeth is well handled and the way things are resolved between them is believable and touching. The secondary characters are handled well and create intrigue. The author has cleverly managed to provide a Happy Ever After ending, but leave the reader wanting more.

This review is from: Darcy’s Hope at Donwell Abbey: A WW1 Pride & Prejudice Companion Story (Great War Romance Book 2) (Kindle Edition)

This beautifully crafted novel follows on well from Darcy’s Hope – Beauty from Ashes, but can also be read in isolation. The trials of Elizabeth continue, and Darcy struggles to come to terms with his injuries. Not to be missed.

Downton Abbey Meets Pride & Prejudice!

            Darcy’s Hope Beauty from Ashes:

WW1 Captain Fitzwilliam Darcy was rejected by the woman he loved and left grief-stricken over the loss of his men. “Enough!” Darcy vows, “No more sentimental entanglements. No comrades, no dog, and certainly no woman!”

*Note: Darcy’s Hope has a happy ending but continues in Darcy’s Hope at Donwell Abbey. In the sequel, readers will experience the full resolution of the mystery, and our beloved couple’s love will face a new, tragic test in Darcy’s Hope at Donwell Abbey.

  1. Thanks, Peter.

    While researching for the Darcy’s Hope saga, I was moved by the fortitude, character, and resilience of both the men and women of that era. In Darcy’s Hope, I really tried to give readers a glimpse into not only an unfamiliar period of history, but also the people themselves, while at the same time giving readers a front row seat to watch the unfolding of a beautiful romance. Here’s to you, Brits!
