Home » » REVIEW:The Gallant Vicar by Barbara Silkstone
Darcy is desperate to deconstruct the growing attachment Elizabeth feels for the new vicar. Determined to unearth the truth about the clergyman before Elizabeth is coerced into marriage, Darcy swings into action even as he fears he will appear to be jealous.
Will Darcy save the day? Will Elizabeth accept his help? And exactly who is the Gallant Vicar?
My Review: I don't even know how to start this review. The main premise of this book is that Mr Collins goes mad and has to be locked away in a asylum. Elizabeth and Mary go to help Charlotte and meet the new vicar of Hunsford. Lizzy stays mad at Darcy throughout most of the book and Darcy is possessive towards her. It seemed like the author tried to stay true to the original characters but to me they seemed a little out of character.
The book was good but it could have been better if it had been fleshed out some more. We don't even hear about the Bennets after Lizzy and Mary leave for Hunsford and Jane only shows up towards the end of the book. Again it could have been better if it was more fleshed out.
