Romantic historical fiction /Pride and prejudice variation

To review

Can one read too many JA variations? The answer is no. They are always fun!

Darcy likes Lizzy fromt the start and wishes to save her.

Lizzy of course believes the whispers of Wickham, and thinks of those things she heard Darcy said. But hey, gotta save the family! So they marry

Oh poor Darcy! He learns she does not care at all and he despairs.

But this is a romantic story after all. She will learn that he is not all that he seems, and he will see that he deserves love too. They are the sweetest and I liked this angle. They had to work for it.

PP variations for the win! They never disappoint.

Good narration. I really felt I was there. Good voices and depth

When Fitzwilliam Darcy makes an impetuous offer of marriage to Miss Elizabeth Bennet, he is convinced they have as good a chance as any for a harmonious life together. That is, until an overheard conversation changes everything, and Darcy realizes he is now joined in perpetuity to a woman who loathes the very sight of him.

Elizabeth Bennet's expectations for matrimonial accord were never very high, having accepted Mr. Darcy's proposal in a fit of pique, not love. Still, she is determined to make the best of her situation, despite having tied herself to such an arrogant, disagreeable man.

But life at Pemberley is not at all what she imagined, and Elizabeth soon finds herself with more questions than answers about the enigmatic gentleman she agreed to wed.

Trapped in a marriage founded on misunderstandings, Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy struggle with deepening attraction while confronting self-doubt and old betrayals. But is love enough to heal the wounds of the past? What will it take for two people bound by duty to find their way home to one another?


  1. The classics are a classic for a reason, and I think the ability for there to be so many creative variations and retellings really speaks to the brilliance of the original!

  2. Someday I'll read the original.

  3. I love P & P so happy to hear this was a good variation. I'll keep it in mind. :)

  4. I'm glad you found a read a you liked.

  5. I do love the variations on Austen books, too. :)
