A sudden and fierce snow storm causes Elizabeth, Jane, and Lydia Bennet, as well as their would-be rescuers, Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley, to take shelter in an empty cabin. Lydia's suggestion to pass the time with games might be just what Bingley needs to prove Jane truly cares for him. Will Elizabeth's prejudices of Mr. Darcy hold up under the scrutiny of being stranded with him?

I really enjoyed listening to this story. It was a very sweet story showing a different situation for Lizzy to get to know Darcy better. But some of the characters were acting a bit out of character so the narrator had to make them recognisable yet reflect the different tone of the book. I think Lydia was hard because her character was quite different to what we are used to; much more reflective than normal but Sophie Andrews did a good job. Jane was more assertive too. However I think my favourite characterisation was Mr Darcy. For someone who sounds as young as Miss Andrews, she managed to portray his voice with a rhythm and timbre that perfectly reflected his character.

I look forward to more from both the author and the narrator.
