Synopsis: A decade ago, groundbreaking novel THE THREE COLONELS began the epic Jane Austen’s Fighting Men series and transformed Austenesque literature with its blend of Regency romance and historical fiction. ROSINGS PARK is its long-awaited conclusion!

The Napoleonic Wars are finally over, and Britain seeks to rebuild after a generation of war. Gone is the “green and pleasant land” of the early Regency. In its place, a natural disaster on the other side of the world exacerbates the country’s woes: economic depression, widespread hunger, industrialization, and civil unrest. Great Britain faces ruin and revolution.

Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy agree to take in the young and spirited daughter of Lydia Wickham, and all the while, their beloved Pemberley is being endangered by riotous Luddites. Colonel Sir Richard Fitzwilliam marries Anne de Bourgh but finds the management of Rosings Park no easy matter, especially with Lady Catherine de Bourgh ready and eager to offer advice. Haunted by despair and gravely wounded in body and spirit, a bitter Colonel Sir John Buford returns to England to be nursed by his wife, the former Caroline Bingley.

Then, an evil out of the past returns to wreak vengeance on Rosings Park, and the Darcys, Fitzwilliams, Bufords, and their friends face a devastating truth: HAPPILY EVER AFTER MUST BE EARNED.

My Review: This is the fourth and final book in Jane Austen's Fighting Men series by Jack Caldwell. I will say that you should read the first three books before you attempt this one as events happen in those books that are mentioned in Rosings Park. I did have to go back and re-read the first three as I had forgotten what had happened in those books. I'm glad I did because I had forgotten a lot. This book had a lot going on and while the Luddites did cause some trouble in this book I would say it's not really the main focus. The main villain was Anne's cousin Kendrick who is a major asshole. 

I would recommend reading this series as a whole. It was greatly done and I really enjoyed all the character growth and blending of all the Jane Austen novels. 

Rating: 4 stars
