More from Robin

Have you ever been judged on the basis of your appearance – what you weigh, how you dress, how you wear your hair or do your makeup? I am a professional dieter, and I have been on all of them. I lose, and I gain it back. I know the lengths a woman will go to after she overhears remarks about how she looks, so I relate to Elizabeth in More to Love in a way that’s a bit beyond my comfort zone.

Another aspect of this book which is personal is that I chose to base a supporting character on a wonderful, Christian lady at my church (with her permission). Mrs. Donna Bailey has been a constant encouragement to me in regards to my writing. She often gives me beautiful sugar cookies she painstakingly decorates with holiday themes. Mrs. Bailey is the housekeeper and dessert cook at Longbourn, and she helps Elizabeth through thick and thin, so to speak.

My thoughts:

I really enjoyed this take on Pride and Prejudice. It is one of my favorite stories. The author did a wonderful job of maintaining the integrity of the original story yet putting her own spin on things and bringing it to life.

I definitely felt for Elizabeth and her flaws, as I have struggled with the same thing before. I appreciated how Mr. Darcy began to see beyond her outward appearance and appreciate the beautiful young woman she was within which in turn made her beautiful overall.

If you like Pride and Prejudice or just historical romance in general I think you will enjoy this book.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, or your favorite retailer.

A copy of this book was given to me to through the Celebrate Lit Team. All opinions are my own.

    This sounds good! When my mom, who carried eight babies full-term, would say something about her weight, my dad would say, “More of you to love, my dear!”

  4. I love the cover, its so pretty!!

      Thank you, Marisela! That’s my daughter on the cover. We did a photo shoot in our home town with a local venue and photographer. The cover won a gold star award from The Book Designer. Best of luck to you, dear!
