About the Book
: Presumption and Partiality
: Rebekah Jones
What an interesting twist to the well beloved story of Pride and Prejudice. In Presumption and Partiality we have a retelling that takes place in depression era Arizona. I found the locale and the time period to both be an exotic change to this already masterful story. I enjoyed reading this novel and picking out the Austen scenes and characters. The characters do have different names, and for just for a little awhile they threw me off.
My biggest surprise is that she made the Darcy character, Sidney Dennison to be part Native American. That just sealed the deal on my wanting to read this retelling. Christianity plays a big part in this story and faith is played out in the actions of the two older sisters as they help those less fortunate then themselves.
This is the fifth story in the Vintage Jane Austen series, and they are all by different authors. It was nice to revisit some beloved characters even if their times and names have changed. If you like Austen retellings this was a very unique one.
I received a complimentary copy of this novel. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
