Here with your review!
First off, sorry about the wait, I usually get these done in quicker time.
I really like this story, it's very original :) I love reading AUs and this being set back in Jane Austen times (as I call it) makes it ten times better! I love stories set back in this time.

The style of this story so far is really good, you have really captured the feel of what is was like back then and the dialogue is brilliant! The characterisation is good, I can't really give a full in depth answer because it's only the first chapter but for historical characterisation you've done really well, nothing screams OOC.
Rose is very Lizzie and Lily is like Kitty and Lydia combined :) Can't wait to see where this goes.

Author's Response: Thank you very much for this review (as well as the second)! It means a lot to have a careful eye look over the story, especially one that, for me, is "out of my realm", so that I don't end up going in the wrong direction.

Anyway, it's fantastic that you've enjoyed the first chapter - I'm really glad to hear that the AU setting and characterization is working out, as those are the most challenging aspects of this story. Writing like Austen isn't as hard as I thought, though this story contains but the faintest shadow of her skill with words. And yes, Lily is a lot like all of Lizzie's sisters (except for Mary) combined - it's easier than having to include more of the cousins to fill in the gaps. :D
