I didn’t fall asleep. “The Burn of Music” is well-put-together words desperately searching for a plot. Is it a ghost story? It starts that way. Is it an injury story? Elizabeth suffers a burn. Is it a musical story? That’s there too. During the Bennet sisters’ residence at Netherfield Park, Elizabeth hears a virtuoso pianist. But who plays that well? The Bingley sisters are competent but not that brilliant. A rather long section of the book concerns a musical recital held annually at Rosings. Anne de Bourgh, whose health had permitted her to learn, is a proficient and always performs duets with Darcy at the affair. This year, however, Anne’s health does not allow her to play … or maybe it will … or maybe not … or maybe just one selection … Of course, the recital is during the time of Elizabeth’s visit with the Collinses. We are to believe that with only a few weeks of instruction and practice with Darcy, Elizabeth will improve from talented ivory tickler to virtuoso. And then more stuff happens … The writing is rather good … but the book rambles from event to event without a consistent story.

Good but long Reviewed in Canada on February 16, 2020 This was a good story but I found it a bit too drawn out. The dialogue was good, but the narrative was a bit long. I take delight in a musical Darcy; variations that include such have been favorites. It seemed to take a long time to reach the happily ever after. There is only a touch of angst that gets quickly resolved. I really liked Mr. Bennet’s portrayal. Darcy was everything proper, but if the author makes him so, there were situations that Good but long Reviewed in Canada on February 16, 2020 This was a good story but I found it a bit too drawn out. The dialogue was good, but the narrative was a bit long. I take delight in a musical Darcy; variations that include such have been favorites. It seemed to take a long time to reach the happily ever after. There is only a touch of angst that gets quickly resolved. I really liked Mr. Bennet’s portrayal. Darcy was everything proper, but if the author makes him so, there were situations that wouldn’t have been proper during Regency times, i.e., notes passed between them, or extended periods of lone time without a chaperone. Elizabeth loved him early in the story, and she was never comfortable with Wickham. There is another villain in the story as well. There were a few proofreading errors, but nothing too severe. Overall, a clean, sweet story.

Music is as music does The spirit of the story seemed muted. Wasn’t my cup of tea. I wouldn’t be surprised if more would enjoy it than those who don’t.
