Summary

Avoiding the truth does not change the truth.

When Fitzwilliam Darcy meets Miss Elizabeth Bennet, his heart is almost immediately engaged. Seeing the pretty lady before him, a lady of no consequence or fortune, he believes he should not form an attachment to her, unsuitable as such a woman is to be his wife. 

What he cannot see, however, is the truth. That the simple country girl harbors a secret. Before she meets Darcy, Elizabeth has spent two years hiding from the men who killed her beloved first husband. Feeling herself destroyed by love, Elizabeth is certain she will never love again, certainly not the arrogant man who has offended her from the first moment of their acquaintance. 

In time, Elizabeth surprises herself by finding in Darcy a friend. Even greater is her surprise to find herself gradually coming to love him and  even accepting an offer of marriage from him. As the newly married couple is beginning to settle into their happily ever after, a condemned man on his way to the gallows divulges a shattering truth - a secret that contradicts everything Elizabeth thought she knew about the tragic circumstances of her first marriage. 

Against the advice of everyone who loves her - including Darcy - Elizabeth begins to seek the truth, knowing she must have it even if it may destroy her newfound happiness with Darcy.

Really loved some aspects of this book.

Made me laugh, made me blush. (For the record, this may not be the best book to listen to while ferrying the kids about in the car.) In the end, I had to change it for something more prudish.

Unique and original

Staccato, excruciating sow, tedious narration almost led me to quit the story several times but persevered because of the story I can also add that often could not understand the words and understand who was speaking among most of the male personages. Too bad as the author did a superior manuscript.

Great Story!

One of the best variations I’ve read. Very imaginative plot. Loved the dialog and descriptions of the feelings between Darcy and Elizabeth. Always enjoy a long story that gets to explore the characters and situations thoroughly. Well done!!

Best Pride & Prejudice Variation EVER

10 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Stars!
I think I’ve read every variation possible from the humblest of Pride and Prejudice Variation’s, to a Vampire version, to a modern presidential take, to a few saucy adult version, to many many repeat versions that have very little variation at all and mostly help me sleep. This has been by far the best variation with a wonderful yet tragic romantic addition yet still focusing on our love for Elizabeth and Darcy ! A+++

Brava!

I loved this when I read it but I think I love it more as an audiobook! Sarah Jane Rose is a talented voice actress, and I think I will listen to anything else she narrates! A new favorite indeed!

Quite long for a Pride and Prejudice Variation

At nearly 18 hours long, I wasn't sure this book would be able to keep my attention, but it more than did that, it absolutely enthralled me. The story was just so good, and the writing wonderful. However, I wasn't really fond of this narration (including a number of mispronounced words), but setting the speed at 1.5% (in other words, speeding it up beyond the 1.25% I usually use) did help considerably.

Narrator is Unbelievable

The story was ruined by the narrator, she is so overly dramatic and haughty when speaking as Elizabeth and the "upper ton". She also enunciates her words like William Shatner on Star Trek. UGH

Oh how love this book!

This is the second JAFF PNP vagary that I have read where Elizabeth Bennet is a Countess when ODC meets. The other was "On Equal Ground" by Elizabeth Adams which by the way is one of my favorites. Regardless, both storylines are very different from each other.

This story had quite a bit of betrayal, intrigue, treason, assassination plots, murder and identity theft. The book has so many highs and lows and a wonderful HEA for ODC.
