Summary

I have no notion who I am meant to be. 

In 1789, a terrible crime is committed, plunging one family into grief as another rejoices in the gift of an unexpected son. Two decades later, a chance meeting leads to the discovery of the lost heir of Pemberley and the man who knew himself as Mr, William Lucas is restored to his birthright as Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley. 

Discovering the truth about his past means leaving behind everyone and everything he has ever known and loved - including his childhood best friend and soon-to-be betrothed, Elizabeth Bennet. Tormented by questions about himself, and his place, Darcy struggles to understand and adapt to his changed identity and his new life. He must contend with a father buried in the shadows of the past and family relationships he does not understand. 

The truth has come out. Some have gained by it, some have lost by it, and I am in the middle. I cannot possibly make everyone happy. No matter what I do, someone will suffer. No matter what I do, shall suffer.

Somehow, he must find a way to do right by his new and old families, especially if he is to avoid losing Elizabeth forever.

Excellent Narration

This is a great story, and the narration quality is excellent. I always love it when there is a happily ever after for Charlotte.

Happily a long listen

This is a long book and never does it get boring as it just moves along at the perfect rate. The angst in the book is very realistic and the story has a natural flow that gives us insight to how the characters would have reacted in this situation. Very relatable characters.
