Summary

The air was all gone, and coldness overtook her, as though she had fallen into icy water and was sinking into the blackness. Her stomach churned, as it was wont to do these days. He would not marry her. She was ruined.

The arrival of two eligible gentlemen at Netherfield Park sends ripples of excitement through nearby Meryton. But Mr Bingley and Mr Darcy are not the only additions to the neighbourhood raising eyebrows. An unremarkable cottage in the woods between Netherfield and Meryton also has new tenants. One of them — a lively little girl with an adventurous spirit, a love of the outdoors, and a past shrouded in mystery — draws the notice of more than one local.

Elizabeth Bennet — young, intelligent, and unfashionably independent — forms a poor first impression of the haughty Mr Darcy. On closer acquaintance, and against her better judgment, her disgust begins to give way to more tender feelings. Yet standing in the way of any potential romance is the closely guarded history of a certain little girl in a cottage in the woods. Elizabeth might be ready to disclose her hidden affections, but she is about to learn that some things are better kept secret, and some hearts are safer left untouched.

Charming & romantic

Very much enjoyed the subtle, well-paced ripple effect caused by a small but significant twist to the original plot of Pride and Prejudice. Jessie Lewis writes charmingly, and the slow burn of the romance between E&D will leave you quite breathless. Stevie Zimmerman's narration is a perfect fit for this story.

Good mystery

Another very well written book by Jesse Lewis. A mystery of Anna kept me guessing, the plot was very good though a bit unbelievable. It created a Lt of angst and drama and made a good story. Darcy and Elizabeth had a difficult path to HEA, but they got there.

Stevie Zimmerman’s narration superb as usual, showing characters emotions very well. A good story by a great author narrated by one of my favorite narrators. Highly recommended.

Wonderful surprise

Once again, trusting a book narrated by the very talented Stevie Zimmerman led me to a new author to look for when I need a future listen.

Fallen is full of surprises and interesting plot twists while still staying true to canon. It has become one of my favorites to put on my “worth listening to again” list.

Of course, Stevie Zimmerman brings the story to life with her sparkling talent.
