Publisher's Summary

What does an aging country attorney know about raising five young women? Apparently not enough, for the first of them to wed is the youngest, and her husband is a schemer. Trying to do better for his remaining wards, Mr. Phillips moves them to London.

Elizabeth is happy enough to visit London with her uncle and sisters, until town life throws her into the company of Mr. Darcy. She met him the autumn before, when he and his friends visited Hertfordshire, and found him thoroughly disagreeable. Now, it seems she must be in his company nearly every day.

Darcy is aware that Miss Elizabeth Bennet doesn’t care for him, which suits him perfectly. After all, he has no intention of courting the aggravating country miss. Even so, he must see her often and they develop a tentative friendship. Both make it clear to each other that it is friendship, not love. As those around them seek their help for their romantic relationships, Darcy and Elizabeth are steadfast in avoiding romantic involvement with each other. Or are they?

This is a Pride and Prejudice variation of approximately 59,000 words.

Disappointing Narration

Wholly new and unusual story premise . A lot of P&P variations have quite similar story premises. This one is different. Good Story! Narration was disappointing and difficult to listen to , The voice for all male characters sounded very much the same and was grating on the ears. This is the second book I've listened to, I think, by Ms. Bilson and I don't recall the previous narration having the same effect on me. I probably will listen to it again later, but won't like it any better than I do now. The story alone is why I've given it an overall 4 star rating.

A very different premise, but more than tolerable

Characters are mostly true to cannon, but the story line is significantly altered. I loved the interactions between Darcy and Elizabeth, but the narrator's voice for the male characters sound dreadfully robotic and detracts significantly in what would otherwise be an enjoyable read The idea of Lady Catherine being friends with Mr Phillips along with Kitty's relationship with Colonel Fitzwilliam is preposterous, however I still enjoyed the romance between Darcy and Elizabeth enough that I could let it slide.

Nice story

In this story we meet Elizabeth and her sisters as they live with mr Philips. Mr. Wickham has compromised Lydia. Then they move to London and meet with miss De Bourgh. Intricate and witty.

Another win for this duo

I have always enjoyed the stories this team puts together and this was another sweet enjoyable story. The only problem I had with this production was the voice of Darcy. It was quite monotone and not at all romantic.
