Lady Catherine's Necklace summary å 8 Joan Aiken one of Jane Austen's most sparkling successors takes up Austen's pen yet again this time continuing where Pride and Prejudice left off in Lady Catherine's NecklaceIn Austen's classic novel the arrogant Lady Catherine de Bourgh tried vehemently to prevent the betrothal of her nephew Mr Darcy whom she had intended for her daughter Anne to the less socially connected Elizabe. I read this bc I was impressed by Aiken s Jane Fairfax and WOW was it a letdown It is supposed to be a follow up to PP but somehow it seems to keep coming back to the gardener and Anne DeBurgh and nonsense Ms Jennings from SSshows up A pair of gay artists are living in a cottage on the estate Someone inherits stuff even though they are a girl and were illegitimate Some one is raised as a boy bc wet nurses get paid for boys Someone runs away to live in a cottage in WalesThese are not Jane Austen s characters just some folks who have the same names

Lady Catherine's Necklace summary å 8 Th Bennet Defeated she retreats to her grand estate Rosings Park This enchanting seuel tells the story of what happens one balmy April day when a sudden blizzard disrupts the weather causes a carriage accident and affects the lives of all those involved in a most amazing wayFrom out of the blizzard emerge the Delaval siblings Miss Delaval having twisted her ankle in the carriage acc. As the Bennett family discovered in Pride and Prejudice to be condescended to by Lady Cathering de Bourgh is an experience to be avoided if at all possible But when Miss Priscilla Delaval and her brother Ralph are left stranded after a carriage accident outside the gates to Rosings Park Lady Catherine finds herself not entirely averse to these uninvited guestsHer ladyship s nephew Colonel FitzWilliam is expected but until then she has only her daughter Anne and the egregious Collins for company But when news arrives of Mr Bennet s death Mr Collins hastens away to protect his inheritance leaving his wife alone only days before the birth of their third child Mrs Collin s sister Maria Lucas is on hand to support her but Maria has her own problems for Colonel FitzWilliam is promised to Miss Anne but could it be that Miss Anne s eye is turning elsewhere And what is Priscilla Delaval up toback pageNot a very good imitation of our beloved Miss Austen s style or sense of humor Miss Delaval is so obvious that her game is gaudily evident from the first few pages Ralph convinces Lady de Bourgh to make changes on her estate that lead to very unfortunate results and it almost seems as though the author had to invent this despicable situation to allow for one of the pairings at the end where everyone well almost everyone wound up with the one they desired Fortunately our hero was intelligent enough to recognize Miss Delaval s machinations and remain unimpressed and uncaptured It appeared that there were happy endings all round but a closer examination reveals that one of Miss Austen s beloved characters turned out to have very big feet of clay That saddened me I am sentimental when it comes to the Jane Austen characters and I now think less of this author for having plotted such a revelation of baseness in a hitherto beautiful characterAll in all I can t recommend this book to any true Janeite unless he or she is absolutely gasping for a Jane Austen fix

Lady Catherine's Necklace summary å 8 Ident accepts Lady Catherine's gracious hospitality while she recovers But the Delavals' presence proves disturbing to the entire household first causing the removal of two artists from their cottage home on the de Bourgh property then meddling in Miss Anne's marriage plans Suddenly Lady Catherine is kidnapped revealing some members of the household to be not at all what they seemed. I love Joan Aiken Lady Catherine s Necklace starts off kinda sweet and slow as molasses in winter Then folks start misbehaving in the most classy way of course this is not a trashy novel Different characters begin popping up from other Jane Austen novels but the setting is Rosings the lovely estate of Lady Catherine de Bourgh and the story centers mostly around her her Weird daughter Anne nephew Fitzwilliam and the Collins including the unmarried Maria Lucas who really shines There are a few clever twists and surprises but they never get ridiculous and spoil the story I found myself grinning ear to ear at the wonderfully unexpected ending I never saw THAT coming This is the second Austen inspired work of Aiken s that I ve read and I m delighted to know that the minute I finish writing this review I have another one waiting for me on my iPad Thanks Sourcebooks for all the free Jane on her birthday
