Amanda Grange

Amanda Grange grew up reading Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer novels, which perhaps is the best preparation for a career as a romance writer. She is the author of more than 20 novels, including Mr. Knightley’s Diary and Mr. Darcy’s Diary, and lives in Cheshire, England.

Samenvatting

At the age of eighteen, James Brandon's life is set fair. He is in love with his father's ward, Eliza, and he is looking forward to a lifetime of happiness with her. But his world is shattered when Eliza is forced to marry his brother and James joins the army in despair. Whilst he is in the East Indies, Eliza is badly treated and she seeks consolation outside her marriage, leading to divorce and destitution. Returning to England, Brandon finds her in a debtors' prison. He rescues her from her terrible position, but she is dying of consumption and he can do nothing but watch and wait. Heartbroken at her death, he takes consolation from her illegitimate daughter, whom he raises as his ward. But at the age of fifteen, the young Eliza goes missing. Oppressed by the thought of what could have happened to her, he is surprised to find himself falling in love with Marianne Dashwood. But Marianne is falling in love with Willoughby....

Recensie(s)

Captain Wentworth's Diary 'Amanda Grange has taken on the challenge of reworking a much loved romance and succeeds brilliantly.' Editors' Choice, Historical Novels Review Mr Knightley's Diary 'Sticks close to the plot of Austen's Emma, mixing his initially censorious view of Miss Woodhouse with his notes on managing the hereditary seat at Donwell Abbey and affectionate asides on his collection of young nieces and nephews.' Washington Post 'Hits the Regency language and tone on the head.' Library Journal Darcy's Diary 'A gift to a new generation of Darcy fans and a treat for existing fans as well.' Austenblog 'Lots of fun.' Woman Harstairs House 'With its mysterious overtones and brooding hero, this is a nicely crafted, intriguing throwback to the classic Gothic.' Romantic Times Stormcrow Castle 'Grange peppers her story with rich atmospheric details, from a masked ball to a cast of colorful locals. Fans of romantic suspense will enjoy this tale of intrigue and deception on the barren moors.' Publishers Weekly

    Geschreven bij Colonel Brandon's Diary

    Als je het verhaal van Sense and Sensibility al kent moet je je geen zorgen maken over dat het een saai verhaal is. En als je het verhaal niet kent is dit de perfecte introductie. Ik kon dit boek niet wegleggen! Het is echt zo geschreven alsof je in gesprek bent met Colonel Brandon. Ik vond het een geweldig boek en ben van plan ook andere boeken van Amanda Grange te gaan lezen.
