“Whatever can give his sister any pleasure is sure to be done in a moment. There is nothing he would not do for her.” (Pride and Prejudice)
It’s time for Georgiana to get married - but who will she choose?
Darcy’s choice is Kettering Corby, marquess of Somersea, an old schoolfellow with a fair shot and an excellent seat, not to mention a fine title and a very fine fortune.
Elizabeth favors Mr. Drake Midwinter, a local clergyman of neither rank nor fortune, possessing no recommendation but one: He loves Georgiana. More importantly, Georgiana loves him.
As wealth and connections outweigh considerations of love and happiness, Elizabeth has to wonder: Has Fitzwilliam’s intractable pride returned? Or have her old prejudices rendered her unable to accept the possibility that Darcy’s match is truly best for his sister?

Entertaining, funny and warm...:)
The third installment in the series concentrates on Georgiana Darcy, the character almost absent and yet kind of crucial in Jane Austen's original:) And I love the fact that we get to know her so much better in this variation - she deserves a good story and she gets it:)
The plot is quite fast, with a lot happening all the time and yet there is this feeling of peace and quiet, of safety, of warmth that Jane Austen's novel also had. Yes, there are emotions buzzing underneath the calm outer shell but we know that whatever happens, Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy will always be there to love and support the ones that are close to them... We feel that cacoon of their love for their family members, whatever happens.
It's a wonderfully warm part of the series, the best of the three I've listened to. It left me feeling happy, smiling to myself - can there be a better recommendation for a romance? :)
And as always, Ms Meiberger is perfect narrating the story; the voices she gives particular characters match them extremely well - both ladies and gentlemen:) - and the narrative parts take you back in time and make you feel like walking among the members of the ton, drinking tea in their company beside a warm fireplace, or exchanging opinions on Miss this or that's new hat...:)
