My review will be rather brief because I do not want to give away too much of the story. I hope it is enough to make you want to read it too. It will be well worth your time.
To give you an idea of what it is about, here is the blurb.
This story was inspired by my favorite Christmas movie, “It’s A Wonderful Life” with Jimmy Stewart. Whilst my story does not follow that plot, I wanted to write a tale about an angel who helps Elizabeth Bennet one bleak Christmas. Here is the blurb for “An Angel In Her Pocket.”
Life had been hard for Elizabeth Bennet in the months since she refused Mr. Darcy’s proposal at Kent. Lydia eloped with Mr. Wickham, and her father died shortly thereafter. Mr. Collins took possession of Longbourn, forcing her family to live apart to survive. She and Jane left to live in London with the Gardiners, and Elizabeth’s hope of finding employment there was fading quickly as Christmas approached.
Grace Angelini is on a mission from St. Peter to right a wrong. For her plan to work, Fitzwilliam Darcy has to overcome his pride and propose to Elizabeth Bennet a second time, although neither is a part of the other’s circle. Undeterred, Grace does her best to unite the couple by securing a position for Elizabeth as Darcy’s goddaughter’s governess.
Will Grace’s help prove to be a blessing or a curse when Elizabeth’s position is put in peril through no fault of her own?
You’ll find the answer in “An Angel in Her Pocket.”
My share in the conversation...
An Angel in Her Pocket is such a delightful story. I loved every minute of it. Brenda J. Webb did an excellent job with the writing and editing of her Christmas story. I was invested from the beginning and was sorely disappointed when I had to stop reading for the rest of the day! I couldn't wait to start reading again and see how the angel, Grace, was going to bring Darcy and Lizzy together.
There was a puppy and a young girl in this story! It was enjoyable seeing Darcy and Elizabeth interact with both.
I loved Darcy and Lizzy, and the author kept them true to their characters. I will stop here because I do not want to give any spoilers. It's short, delightful, and easy on the pocketbook. Don't miss this one!
I'm giving away one eBook copy of this novella, An Angel in Her Pocket, by Brenda J. Webb. It may be after Christmas, but this story is good any time of the year!
