Publisher's Summary

The death of one’s spirit should come with a great deal of noise: weeping and wailing, if not thunder or the roar of a fire. Elizabeth could not have imagined a spirit forced into darkness by something so mundane as the scratch of pen on paper. Elizabeth Bennet has been certain of many things in her life: her place in society, the love of her family, her ability to choose her own future, and her ability to accurately judge the character of those she meets. Three days after the Netherfield Ball, a near tragedy shakes that foundation and in the weeks that follow, Elizabeth learns that nothing is certain. Compelled by circumstance and her mother’s will, Elizabeth is condemned to marry her father’s heir, Mr William Collins. Isolated from everyone she knows and loves, Elizabeth is faced with a dark and difficult future. Unaware of the changes that have occurred in his absence, Fitzwilliam Darcy returns to Hertfordshire determined to right his wrongs and prove himself worthy of Elizabeth’s love. 

When he learns he is too late to secure his happiness, Darcy determines he will express his love for Elizabeth the only way he can - by protecting her younger sisters as well as he would his own. Old bonds are strengthened, family ties are severed, and unlikely allies emerge as each of them struggles to make sense of the changes they face. Can happiness be found when it seems all hope is lost? 

This novella is a variation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and as such contains her characters as well as those of the author's creation.

David Pickering is a Gifted Storyteller

Fantastic novella in ebook and even better in audio. David Pickering is a gifted storyteller and I liked his clear, rich voice, his characterizations without being over-the-top, and pacing. No distracting production issues to steal from my overall enjoyment or attention. Easy to recommend.

Disappointed

I would never have thought any writer would make our beloved strong willed miss Elizabeth Bennett into an abused and battered wife of mr Collins, it was terrible to hear Eliza go from strong and impertinent to a victim of abuse who forfeited her lively spirits to a man she never even wanted... worst p&p variation iv heard!!

Great story

It started with some angst. Mr Bennet became ill and Mrs Bennet decided that Elizabeth should be wed to Mr. Collins to save them all. This was just after the ball. When Mr Darcy comes to his senses and goes back to Hertfordshire he is in for a chock. Well written and narrated.

Awful story

In my opinion this was an awful story. Wife beating or some other awful things done to Elizabeth. This is not what I listen to Pride and Prejudice variations for. So glad she at last found happiness but the ineffectual power of the characters who supposedly cared for Elizabeth was terrible too.
