In this “what if?” variation, the story begins shortly after the Meryton assembly where Darcy and Elizabeth first meet.
There is no Hunsford proposal, although there is no easy road to happiness for our dear couple.
Familiarity with the original Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is necessary to comprehend the story and Jane Austen’s characters.
Please note that this is a novella, not a full-length novel.
What an inventive “what if!” Superb execution of the story had me guessing the whole time!
I was surprised to learn that this was a debut novel for this author. The writing felt much more that “new” if that makes sense.
Like a seasoned author would write.
Darcy and Elizabeth fall for each other pretty quickly but things happen to put a damper on Mr. Darcy’s feelings.
I don’t want to give it away, but it’s a fantastic re-imagining!
I loved Anne in this one, she has such a good character! Great writing, excellent timing of the outcome, all together perfect story!
I will be looking for more from this author!
