Holiday Tale for Fans of a Young Knight's Quest
The Mission: He Taught Me to Hope Christmas Vignette is a continuation of the “Darcy and the Young Knight's Quest” series by P.O. Dixon. The short story begins not long after He Taught Me to Hope ends with Elizabeth and her young son, Ben Carlton, now living at Pemberley. Ben feeling sad for Darcy because he's lost both of his parents (instead of only one like him), desires nothing more than to have Darcy experience the best Christmas ever. He elicits the help of Georgiana and together they send invitations to Elizabeth’s sisters and parents as well as Darcy’s extended family, the Fitzwilliam’s, for Christmas. Considering Elizabeth used to be engaged to Mr. Collins and is now married to Jane, this is no small task Ben has set out to achieve. However, by the end, Jane and Lizzy are the best of sisters once more.
Pearl Hewitt did an outstanding job narrating, as she does with other Jane
Austen Fan Fiction books. Her voice for the young Ben is particularly good. My only problem with this story is that it was too short! I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest unbiased review.
Quick Holiday read and story continuation
I read this over my Winter break and it was great to listen to a quick story line with characters I've enjoyed. This is a continuation of The Young Knight's Quest and was very enjoyable. Looking forward to the next book.
Pearl Hewitt has become one of my favorite readers. She incorporates different voice inflections for the characters which adds depth and feeling to the story.
Looking forward to the next book.
