Miss Caroline Bingley, our protagonist today. Hated by most, liked by a few. In Sue Barr’s Caroline you can discover a new Caroline…
Let me introduce the author before I give you my opinion of the book.
Sue Barr resides in beautiful Southwestern Ontario with her retired Air Force hubby, two sons and their families. She’s also an indentured servant to three cats and has been known to rescue a kitten or two, or three…in an attempt to keep her ‘cat-lady-in-training’ status current. Although, she has deviated from appointed path and rescued a few dogs as well.
Sue is a member of Romance Writers of America and their affiliate chapter, Love, Hope and Faith as well as American Christian Fiction Writers.

Mr Darcy and Mr Bingley are engaged to two Miss Bennets and Caroline Bingley could not be more angry, disappointed and lost. Even after seeing the attraction that Darcy had towards “dear Eliza” or how happy his brother seemed with “dear Jane”, she kept thinking about herself and how she will conquer Darcy and become the next mistress of Pemberley. However, now everything is lost to her and she is lost.
I have a nickname for this book: “the penny dropper”. Caroline acts like a child and her brother explains very clearly what will happen if she dares to damage his relationship again.
In this book we read how her understanding of the world comes around. She still wishes to become a lady and get a rich husband and be an important part of society but maybe her feelings about that are not her only drive.
Caroline has never been in love before and therefore she does not understand how her body and her mind acts when she meets Lord Nathan.
Lord Nathan is not exactly what he appears to be. he used to be a rake but now he is quite the opposite but at the beginning Caroline does not know. Their attraction is mutual but also their stubbornness and their different ways of finding happiness. They will evolve into new characters, the evolution is greater in Caroline but Lord Nathan with his faith will also have to realise what God has put in front of him and how his life outside the ton can be seen as a non-appealing one by Caroline.
So, can you see a nice Caroline? Can you believe that she will change completely? Do you think she is capable of love? What would you do if a new acquaintance is always following you thinking that you are about to do the worst? What if everything is misunderstanding? What is your “worst enemy” (Elizabeth Bennet) is your only person to ask for advise? What if love is more powerful than society but then you are actually rewarded?
