Summary

Elizabeth Bennet made her sister a promise on her deathbed: to love and care for her son, young Charles Bingley, like her very own child. And so she did, for four years, until the boy's guardian, Fitzwilliam Darcy showed up in Meryton, insisting on removing the boy from his aunt, his life, and everything he knew, to be raised at Pemberley. 

Elizabeth, determined to honor Jane, insists on going with them, soon finding herself installed at Pemberley as an unwanted guest of Mr. Darcy and his aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh. It's the year without a summer and Pemberley is austere and ghostly, with shadows and secrets lurking in every corner. With too much time to herself, Elizabeth soon finds herself wondering about Mr Darcy’s past, and the identity of a young lady who she reads about in the lady’s journal. She soon thinks she has a faithful sketch of Mr Darcy’s character until one key truth emerges which shatters all her prepossessions. Bit by bit the mysteries of Pemberley unravel — but what will she find at the end of it?   

This Pride and Prejudice variation is written in the style of gothic novels of the regency era, such as Northanger Abbey. The beloved characters of Jane Austen in scenarios of the author's imagining.

most enjoyable

Made a nice change to have a variation with a dark tone to it. Some of the narration and pronunciation was a bit annoying but didn't spoil my enjoyment.

loved the story

Loved the gothic feel of the book, it only wanted for a bit better editing of the narration. There were maybe 10 or so repeated words that kept attempting to break the spell of the story.

Great story

I loved the story and length of the book. Unfortunately I did not care for all the narration of the characters, especially Elizabeth’s. She had a deep throaty voice which to me sounded like a man. I did stop listening for a while b/c of it but after a few days started listening again ,but still did not like her voice at all!

Wonderful story

This variation was outstanding — very different than most. It had some surprising twists and kept me interested from the very first chapter. The narrator was outstanding. I highly recommend this book, especially if you like a bit of mystery and intrigue.
