Throwback Thursday is hosted by Renee of It’s Book Talk. This meme was created to share old favorites and/or books published over a year ago. Today I’m going to be sharing a Pride and Prejudice variation that I enjoyed immensely. Bluebells in the Mourning by KaraLynne Mackrory.
Why I chose this book:
I was in the mood for a historical novel at the time so I requested this book from the publisher based on the description on the back cover. It sounded interesting. I didn’t know what to expect since I’d never heard of KaraLynne Mackrory. When I received the book I began reading and I was pleasantly surprised by this beautifully written Pride and Prejudice continuation. It blew me away with its tender, emotional scenes and lyrical prose. I couldn’t believe how incredible it was. See my review here.
I was particularly touched by a scene between Elizabeth Bennett and her mother, it made me feel like this …
Yes, it was deep. A poignant scene that truly moved me. Excellent writing.
I highly recommend this book if you enjoy historical fiction. It was an outstanding read for me. So much so that it’s stayed with me and brings back fond memories whenever I think about it. It remains on my bookshelf to this day.
Have you heard of KaraLynne Mackrory or read any of her books, including this one? What did you think? I’d love to know your thoughts.
Thank you for visiting. Happy reading.
