Summary

A surprise meeting 

A baby alone in the woods 

And a second chance at love.  

Fitzwilliam Darcy returns to his beloved Pemberley with one thing on his mind — to forget Elizabeth Bennet. Riding ahead of his party and racing a storm, he happens upon the very woman he wants to avoid. To his astonishment, she is holding a baby whose name and parentage are unknown. 

Elizabeth Bennet never dreamed she had wandered into Pemberley’s woods on her afternoon walk. But when she finds an infant alone in the storm, she turns to the last man in the world she wants to see — and the only one who can help them both. 

As the mystery of the baby’s identity intensifies, Elizabeth finds Mr. Darcy to be quite different from what she expected. But when the child’s family is discovered, will the truth bring them together or tear them apart?

Repetitive and Sophomoric

This one has a marvelous premise, and the plot, though predictable, is romantic and sweet. The narration is fine enough, as well. Honestly, however, I grew weary of listening about halfway through. The language is repetitive. The conflict (manufactured and gratuitous juvenile misunderstandings/insecurity) is ridiculous and tedious and unrealistic for anyone over the age of 15. And that's sad because the story is a really decent one. It's an "insert a baby" variation, and those are occasionally done very well. Adding a child to break the ice between Elizabeth and Darcy has interesting avenues that can be explored, and this one tried to do that. It just...didn't succeed. If you like watching the two of them wring their hands and needlessly fret over and over, saying all the right things but never convincing the other, then go ahead. /smile. I don't like to be harsh, but this one is a skip for me.

Very cute story

I really enjoyed this story. Darcy finds Elizabeth in the Pemberley woods with a baby in her arms. There is a storm coming. At first Darcy believes that the baby is Elizabeth’s. Twists and turns and there is a HEA for ODC.

Great story

I enjoyed this story very much, an unusual plot and a lot of great Darcy and Elizabeth interactions. Beautiful moments of Darcy and a baby and Elizabeth learning about his true character by observing him. I love stories based mostly at Pemberley and this one is one of my favorite. I hated that Wickham got away with his crimes again and I kind of missed a closure on a couple of threads. The narrator was new to me but very satisfying, I especially enjoyed tender moments with the baby and between D&E. Highly recommend.
