    1. Vol 4 Twelfth Night at Longbourn 3.5 starsPurchased as: Given Good Principles Box SetI am glad this series is finished. Or is it? We still don’t have a completion for Georgiana. Could there be another book for her?I simply could not abide reading about another sister or young girl acting badly and doing damage to their family. Caroline to the very end was a holy terror and caused trouble, damage and chaos wherever she went. This book left several threads hanging. I hesitate in asking about the [...]


    2. (Note: Potential readers should be made aware that this is the fourth volume in the Given Good Principles series, and that it is recommended that Volume I, II, and III are read prior to reading this one – or at the least, Volume III – All the Appearance of Goodness.)What if all the Bennet daughters but Kitty were married? What if Lydia’s imprudent elopement was patched up in a way that still left a stain on the Bennet name? What if Kitty’s life consisted of a father who continues to igno [...]



    3. An enjoyable conclusion to the series as instead of an Elizabeth and Darcy epilogue, we experience the life of Kitty Bennett. She is challenged as the last sister to find happiness amongst her family's scandal. I loved the ending with its beautiful surprises.


    4. Twelfth Night at Longbourn (Given Good Principles)This is the 4th book in Maria Grace's series, Give Good Principles. Poor Kitty. Longbourn is a prison for her. Lydia, after all the trouble of stopping her elopement the first time, she ups and does it again, only this time nobody was there to stop her. Jane, Elizabeth, and Mary are all in Derbyshire since their weddings. Kitty is invited to go to London to stay with Georgiana and her companion, Mrs. Hartwell. Mrs. Hartwell was hired, because Geo [...]


    5. This is a very short book. It is book 4 of the Given Good Principles series. I encourage that you at least read the previous book before starting this one or you will be utterly lost. This book opens approximately one year after Lizzy and Jane married their most deserving husbands. Kitty is alone at Longbourn following the elopement of Lydia with a soldier. In the original work Jane Austen shows that an elopement; while not ideal, is not a life destroying occurrence. In this book it is; Kitty ha [...]


    6. Twelfth Night at Longbourn is the fourth book in the Given Good Principle series. The focus in this book, is on Kitty Bennet, but as Maria Grace has mixed up the couples a bit in this series, I would recommend that you read the previous books for clarity, or at the very least read All the Appearance of Goodness (Vol 3).Kitty is the only one of the Bennet girls left at Longbourn. Shortly after Jane, Elizabeth, and Mary are married, Lydia foolishly elopes with Lt. Harper, leaving Kitty to suffer t [...]


    7. Kitty is a bit of a whiner for me. She seems to be constantly whingeing about her fate after Lydia's infamous elopement. It has left her socially bereft. Her only friends seems to be the Lucas's and even here Maria pretends that she needs something urgently whenever she sees Kitty. Being offered a chance to go to Pemberley seems a god sent opportunity to just get away from the salacious gossip of the town and the nervous breakdown of her mother. Her father seems just indifferent. Only Lizzy coul [...]


    8. Having read the other three volumes of this "Given Good Principles" series I must say that I was not as drawn into this story as I was into some of the others. The premise is good, the events logical but with more potential than I found addressed here. The book's beginning actually gave me a dislike of Kitty. She did not elicit my sympathy. Maybe her character just was not developed to show that she had earned such. Impressions of her following Lydia's behavior remain in my mind. Her having lear [...]


    9. This fouth volume of the series is the one I liked less. I would have prefered to see more of the Darcys and the Fitzwilliams, however I appreciated this glance at Kitty's destiny. I really can put up with the version of Georgiana the author gives, I can't picture her as a sort of Lydia, however it was a quick and pleasurable read.


    10. This was a cute, fast read about Kitty Bennett. I enjoyed reading this little side story. If you like reading Jane Austen "what if" stories, and take offs from Austen's novels, you'll enjoy this little book.



    11. After Lydia's elopement Kitty is left behind to face the consequences. In this wonderful story we go along with her to find out who are the people that will truly stand with her and her family. It should not be missed!


    12. lovelyi loved the coupling in the her books and character profiles. very delightful to read. this is my first one in this particular series but now i am thinking i should read the others.


    13. My review for the entire Give Good Principles can be found here: austenprose/2014/03/10/givKimberly (Reflections of a Book Addict)


    14. 4.5/5.0It’s fascinating to see answers to a “What if?” in the “Pride and Prejudice.” Read full review in the 2015 February issue of InD’tale Magazine.
