Description

The course of true love never did run smooth....

When Fitzwilliam Darcy departs Hunsford after his disastrous proposal to Elizabeth Bennet, he does not expect their paths to cross again. Indeed, knowing the lady's true feelings for him, he makes every effort to see that they do not. But when a chance encounter leaves him stranded in an abandoned cottage with the one woman he can never have, Darcy quickly realizes there is more at risk than just Elizabeth's reputation. 

Elizabeth Bennet knows Mr. Darcy is the last man in the world whom she could ever be prevailed on to marry. Until the morning he hands her a letter, his countenance as dark and forbidding as the windswept sky. Now, trapped in a snowstorm with the one person she was certain she despised, Elizabeth is startled to discover that her feelings are not at all what she expected.

But is one night alone together enough to alter the course of their future?

Can any man as proud as Mr. Darcy be expected to offer for the same woman a second time?

In this tale of serendipity and second chances, literature's unlikeliest couple must conquer pride, prejudice, and faulty first impressions in the elusive quest for their own happily ever after.

I loved this Pride and Prejudice Variation

Great book from the beginning to the end. Darcy and Elizabeth are traveling in a carriage during a snow storm. The carriage breaks an axle and crashes. Darcy is badly injured. The footman goes for help and Darcy and Elizabeth spend the night together in an unoccupied cottage overnight. All is well above board, but if anyone ever finds out they were together overnight, Elizabeth's reputation would be ruined. Darcy would have married her in a heartbeat, but Elizabeth has already rejected his earlier proposal and he believes he is the last person in the world she would ever marry. There is a total lack of honest conversation between the two and they both remain miserable, pining for one another. The listener must wait with patience to find out if they can break the logjam of misunderstanding a find their HEA.

Georgiana, Colonel Fitzwilliam, George Bingley, the Bennetts, Caroline Bingley, Wickham, and Lady Catherine all play a part in the story. Their lives turn out differently than in the Pride and Prejedice story, but all is good.

So Many Things To Love!

What if Lizzy and Darcy hadn't meet by chance at Pemberley, what if Darcy had missed her by just one day?

This Pride and Prejudice variation begins seven months after Darcy's failed proposal at the Hunsford parsonage. Darcy hasn't seen Lizzy since the day he pressed his letter into her hands, but she's been in his thoughts every moment. When he comes across Lizzy alone at an inn he offers to take her to her destination, but an accident leaves them stranded in a cottage alone with Darcy gravely injured.

There were so many things to love about this book! For starters, the locations, it took place in many familiar settings like Kent, London, Pemberley, and Longbourn, and introduced a special new one. For another, it spent so much time with some of my favorite characters like Georgiana and fleshed them out perfectly. And finally, there were so many lovely scenes between my favorite couple.

Poor Lizzy and Darcy! They just couldn't seem to learn how to communicate and they misread each other terribly. This lead to some heartbreaking misunderstandings. Their journey to happiness isn't smooth, but it made for a lovely listen and I highly recommend it.

Stevie Zimmerman's narration was outstanding, as always. She truly has the perfect voice for Darcy, deep and intense, with a touch of vulnerability. The entire performance was a pleasure and brought the story to life.

What a great book. Once again another telling of Darcy and Elisabeth. The author Jennifer Altman did a great job and I love the way Stevie Zimmerman tells a story.

Wonderful! Couldn’t put it down! 🤩😍

To start of, I couldn’t stop listening to his lovely, and absolutely brilliant performance by Stevie Zimmerman!

But Nearly a day to the year of Darcy’s horrid proposal, Elizabeth and Darcy meet again, again in Kent. A carriage accident, leaves Darcy and Elizabeth in a down-run cottage, in a snowstorm. This makes Elizabeth’s feelings start to change for the man she thought Darcy was.

Stevie Zimmerman makes Darcy and Elizabeth come to life, like never before! With all of their misunderstandings, Pride and Prejudice and love for each other.
The story goes from Kent, London and Derbyshire. Georgiana makes quite an appearance, alongside of a few new characters which gives our favourite couple some doubts about each other and their feelings for one another.

But the beauty of Derbyshire, Georgiana and some honest conversations give Darcy and Elizabeth the unending happiness they both desire.

The story, and Stevie’s voice makes the reader/listener feel like you are part of the story, and that makes it a priceless performance by both Jennifer and Stevie. Congratulations to both 🤩
