What I’m reading: Mercy’s Embrace by Laura Hile

Mercy’s EmbraceFollowing on Karen Aminadra’s Charlotte Collins, where she rehabilitates one of the less appealing Jane Austen characters, I have found Laura Hile’s Mercy’s Embrace: So Rough a Course, where she tackles Elizabeth Elliot, the oldest of the Elliot sisters from Persuasion.

From my reading of the Kindle sample, however, I suspect Elizabeth Elliot (Austen’s other Elizabeth) will never be completely redeemed as a character—where would the fun in that be—that is further reinforced by the fact that Mercy’s Embrace is at least a trilogy, which should offer me pleasant reading for some time to come.
