Summary

A tale of intrigue and inheritance, meddling and manipulation, sisterhood and self-improvement. 

When Lady Catherine de Bourgh learns of Mr. Darcy’s proposal to Elizabeth Bennet, her wrath sets in motion a series of events at Hunsford Parsonage, which embroil Darcy and Elizabeth in a family fracas that grows more complicated daily.

The shades of Rosings Park are soon polluted by the shocking transformation of its new mistress and her guests, as well as secrets of the past and schemes for the future.

Appearances and alliances shift amidst the chaos wrought by a well-intentioned house party, and Darcy and Elizabeth must finally face their feelings for one another despite mounting obstacles and misunderstandings of every kind.

Set chiefly in Kent and spanning the short space of just a month, this stand-alone variation begins the morning after Mr. Darcy's failed proposal at Hunsford. From there, chaos quickly erupts and the lives of three strong young women tangle together in a day-by-day journey of growth, sisterhood, and ultimately romance, in the wake of tragedy.

enjoyable variation

I enjoyed this story line. I wasn't sure that I would, Anne hasn't been a main character in any other book I've read and being that she has always been portrayed as a weak personality I doubted she could hold the story but I was very pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed it .

Very Well Done Twist

This is my first story by Ms.Bamber, but I will be looking for more. Very lovely twists to the tale we all know and love.

A couple of comments on the narrator; a nice vice overall, but resorted to over the top affectations to distinguish one character from another. For example, Colonel Fitzwilliam spoke with a high lispy voice, not what we expect from him at all, and his mother rolled her r’s so hard there were at least 3 r’s for every 1.

The editing needed some help too with some words or sentences being repeated.

Good but a bit all over the place.

I found it hard to keep track of all the happenings in this book. I normally don’t. Too many people involved. To many intrigues. Too little of ODC. But there was a HEA. Not a reread for me.
