Publisher's Summary

“I was not looking for love, but there you were. I cannot stop it, I cannot indulge it, so I must put distance between us and hope that time will heal this fever I have.”

Abandoned by her mother and ignored by her father, it is hardly any wonder young Elizabeth Bennet’s curiosity soon brings about trouble and marriage to a man she does not love. Colonel Fitzwilliam’s family - save for his cousin Mr. Darcy - despises her, and life is not what she dreamed of. As she matures and grows from an impetuous girl into a woman, Elizabeth’s most reliable source of friendship and comfort becomes Mr. Darcy. When tragedy strikes, leaving her a widow, she is free to discover who has been in her heart all along.  

Darcy has always been intrigued by the girl his beloved cousin married, and finds himself drawn into helping her after her husband’s death. Over time, admiration turns to love. Admitting his feelings to her - or even himself - could lead to ruin, but denying his passion could shatter him.

What was the point?

If the author was going to entirely change the story, their history, the characters' personalities and very essence, why even use the names from P&P. Truly, I would have returned the book if it hadn't been a gift. I didn't even want to finish it, but I did since can't return it. I didn't really like anyone in this book. Darcy was okay but.... this was a frustrating book. I don't like giving bad reviews, even if I return a book, but I just didn't get the point of trying to make this story about ODC when it just used their names.

There may have been some inconsistencies with time and people's ages and actions or maybe I was so bored with the book I missed when they mentioned something.
***possible spoiler*** example L and W seemed to have their tryst when the twins were born but then the twins were 2 when L and W tried to elope...(?????) . Like I said I may have zoned out and missed something.

Not JAFF

This is an ok story. There were people named Darcy and Elizabeth but not the ones we know. If that’s what you’re looking for, this ain’t it!

Different Jaff but still good.

This was a different story for ODC to their HEA. The whole story is changed in so many ways but the characters are still there. Enjoyed it. Great Jaff.
