The year is 1814, and springtime is in full bloom at Pemberley. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy have married. But now a new romance is in the air, along with high fashion, elegant manners, scandal, deception, and the wonderful hope of a true and lasting love. Shy Georgiana Darcy has been content to remain unmarried, living at Pemberley with her brother and his new bride and convinced that the one man she secretly cares for will never love her in return. But Georgiana's domineering aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, has determined that Georgiana shall marry, and has a list of eligible bachelors in mind, some sincere, and some pursuing Georgiana for her fortune. Georgiana must learn to trust her heart - and rely on her wit and courage - for she also faces the return of a man who could ruin her reputation and spoil a happy ending, just when it finally lies within her grasp.
I have, as with many others, enjoyed the original “Pride and Prejudice”, both the written book and the movies which have evolved from this one book.
This book, although, as the author points out in her preview, follows the young Miss Georgette Darcy, a character which we really did not meet properly in the original book. This is a diary version of her life, and as such, we revisit old acquaintances, and the same time period, but through a completely new set of eyes.
I commend the author for a very credible story, and acknowledge the fine reading rendition by the narrator Mary Sarah.
I didn’t think I was going to like it but I was pleasantly surprised! Thank you for a delightful read. I do want to read the other two.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Not unless somebody else records it again. Having said that the story is great.
What did you like best about this story?
The description Georgiana makes of all the characters involved and how she changes throughout the story
What didn’t you like about Mary Sarah’s performance?
Georgiana's voice is ok though she pauses too much making her speech sound unnatural. Colonel Fitzwilliam always sounds as if he is telling others off.
