Rosings - Karen Aminadra An interesting take on Anne de Bourgh, Mr. Darcy's seemingly insipid, sickly cousin from Pride and Prejudice. I know that I always thought there might be some hope for her if only she could get out from under the thumb of her mother.

There are actually a lot of things to like about this book, despite my initial misgivings upon reaching the first instances of awkward writing within the first few pages. However, that, along with some things that I don't find quite believable, as well as the fact that everyone in the book is on first-name terms with one another, including Anne and a man who is old enough to be her father, which would be unheard of in that day and age, is enough to keep it from a 4-star rating for me.
