When I read the first chapters of Rain and Retribution I was unsure I liked this Elizabeth Bennett. The witty and easy-to-satisfy young woman we love is replaced by a petulant teenager who slams the door to her father. Elizabeth, who had been described by J. Austen as "it was her business to be satisfied and certainly her temper to be happy..." (Pride and Prejudice), has left the novel and it is shocking. Once she meets Darcy and recognizes what he is, the J. Austen creation is once again recognizable and the novel takes form.
I have enjoyed Rain and Retribution because it is well written. Even if some dialogue is rendered in a more contemporary language, the whole is unified in that nothing stops you in your tracks. Some characters have been redesigned and I am happy for it. It gives more bones to secondary characters (Jane, Georgiana, Wickham). I did not mind at all that the tension of the novel is not on the principal characters, bur more to the actions...
I loved it! I would rate this within my topp 10 list of the 200 JAFF books I have read.
I liked that ODC come together early and there are lots of lovely tender moments between them. That said it is not an easy ride... I also liked that not everybody gets theire HEA but gets what they deserve... It gives it a more real feeling. Loved this Elizabeth and Darcy, they feel real to theire caracter including flaws.
The only thing I did not like was that it ended.
I would love to read a sequal.

The relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth is wonderful. So many good qualities in Fitzwilliam come to light immediately in this story, he just needed a little push in the right direction. When Fitzwilliam leaves Netherfield, just outside of Meryton, he finds Lizzy standing in the rain and cannot leave her there. Mr. Hill was talking her to the next stage station when the cart broke a wheel. Stalled because of the weather at the inn, Lizzy gets sick and Darcy takes care of her. During the days at the inn, Darcy discovers why she was on the road, and his plan is an answer to the problem she ran away from. The way Darcy sets Lady Catherine, Anne de Bourgh, and Lord Matlock down was spectacular. They all had it coming. When Lady Catherine and Lord Matlock find out that George Darcy had in his will a contingency that Fitzwilliam would lose his inheritance if he married Anne de Bourgh. Boy did the feathers fly upon finding the out. What I didn't like was the characterization of Mr...
