Oh.my.god! this book was fantastic! I am a novice in the world of Jane Eyre having only read Pride and Prejudice once *Gasp* horror of horrors, I know! I'm working on it I swear. Anyway, this was such an intriguing story. From what I do remember of Mr. Darcy, Mechthild Gläser stayed true to his temperament and personality all the while telling a story so vastly different from the orginal. I admired and enjoyed that quite a lot. If all retellings or "stories inspired by:" were this good my TBR list would be 10x longer! I also enjoyed the story being set in Germany as I have a strong German heritage. Thank goodness it was a translated version tho, my comprehension of written German is not nearly what my comprehension of spoken German is. Unless you are a purest to the Jane Eyre world I believe you will enjoy this book. ( )

When Emma finds a book in the library, she assumes it's merely a chronicle of the history of the village. She decides to add her own entries to the chronicle to record the day-to-day events of her boarding school. Emma soon discovers that anything she writes in the book eventually comes true.

Darcy returns to his old school to investigate his sister's disappearance from the school four years earlier. Everyone thinks that she ran away from school but Darcy suspects there is something more behind her disappearance.

Part mystery, part fantasy, and part Gothic romance, this is a charming combination of Jane Austen's Emma and Pride and Prejudice. ( )

Emma attends a renown boarding school that is a former castle and where her hypochondriac father is the head master. The book starts out at the beginning of a new school year. Emma decides to start a secret book club with a couple of her friends & while cleaning out an old library in a neglected part of the old castle, she finds an old book that appears to be a journal of some sort. Enter the conflict. A former student whose family happens to have been the previous owners of the castle, suddenly appears & forbids Emma & her friends from using the library as their meeting place.
Their first few meetings are tense as Darcy de Winter is a very surly, arrogant and angry young man and doesn't have the time or the desire to converse with the likes of Emma.
As it turns out, Darcy has returned to the castle in the hopes of finding any clues in the disappearance of his twin sister several years ago, from the school. Soon Emma & Darcy become allies, but she is hesitant to tell him that she has discovered that anything she writes in the journal, comes to pass. She also, unfortunately discovers that words can be taken many different ways & not all of her stories turn out the way she had intended.
As Emma & Darcy search for clues, they realize someone else is aware of the book and is trying to steal it from them.

This book has mystery, magic, action and love interests. I did enjoy it but it was a bit slow at points. ( )

The Forgotten Book
By
Mechthild Glaser

What it's all about...

Emma finds a book hidden in a part of her school that is not used by faculty or students. It’s hidden...it’s odd looking...and it has a weird magical power. There are blank pages in the book and whatever Emma writes in the book comes true. However...the way that Emma writes things is not exactly the way that things occur.

Why I wanted to read it...

The cover of this book drew my attention to it. Emma’s father runs the school but he isn’t necessarily a father who pays much attention to Emma. She has tons of time to explore the school grounds...its forests and its hidden caves and trails. Four years ago a young girl disappeared from the school...her brother returns this year to find her and becomes involved with Emma and the mystery that is this book. The boy...Darcy...hopes it will help him find his sister.

What made me truly enjoy this book...

I enjoyed the story. It kept a steady pace and I was never bored by this book. I needed to know what happened to everyone. However...the book wasn’t that exciting to me. It just sort of moved along at a slow and steady pace.

Why you should read it, too...

Readers who enjoy boarding school mysteries with a bit of magic and danger tossed in...should enjoy this book.

I received an advance reader’s copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley and Amazon. It was my choice to read it and review it. ( )
