Review: Pride and Porters

pride-and-porters

Pride and Porters by Charlotte Greene is a contemporary take on the classic romance novel, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Sisters Erin and Jen Bennet, proprietors of Bennet Sisters Brewing, face a saturated Colorado craft beer market. Everyone in their rocky mountain region seems to have a brewpub. In walks tall, dark, and Darcy Fitzwiliam, and Charlie Betters, heir to a successful beer company with a National reputation. 

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” – Pride and Prejudice

Greene works within the framework of Austen’s novel and owns it with her particular blend of attraction, money, and intrigue as the women journey towards Happily-Ever-After. While Jen struggles to find an answer to their brewery expansion woes, she also keeps a protective eye towards Erin’s burgeoning romance with kind-hearted Charlie. Darcy’s frosty reception of the sisters and their unknown intentions towards him keep her equally at odds with Jen. While the original focused on the struggles of English women to attain financial and social security through marriage, Greene shows women for whom love and partner compatibility aren’t simply happy bonuses. Readers will appreciate the ratcheting drama, character chemistry, and thawing emotions in this modern-day retelling.
