Publisher's Summary

"It is the way of the world, Elizabeth. Men hold power over women, but I am not a man who wants to wield such power. I would prefer a woman who has some power over me".

Fitzwilliam Darcy already has one arranged marriage in his past. The last thing he envisions for himself is another, yet he has somehow become entrapped in a promise to a dying man. Not only must Darcy overcome his resentment in order to live up to his sense of honour, but when he realises how deeply his heart may be engaged, he must convince Elizabeth Bennet of his true feelings.

Elizabeth never expected the imperious Mr Darcy to become a good friend of an idle gentleman like her father. And she certainly never anticipated they would form a secret pact compelling her marriage to a man she dislikes. She must set aside grief and resentment, as well as her suspicions: Is Darcy using her to avoid another bride pushed onto him by his family, or to gain riches Elizabeth never knew she had?

Or is it possible he loves her?

Not great

I’ve read (and listened to) many a P&P variation. This one was just didn’t quite hit the mark for me. The writing was fine but the story focused too much on Mr Bennet and Mr Darcy and it just took too long to get where it was going. Nothing much happened and I actually found it a bit boring. It just didn’t capture the pace or humour of the original and the ending felt rushed compared to the snail’s pace of the body of the story.

Great book

This was a great book to listen to. The narrator did a great job too. Well written and witty. Great Jaff.
