Publisher's Summary

Fitzwilliam Darcy is desperate. Finally confronted with a woman who ignites all his hopes, he agonizes over the cruel trick of fate which placed her in a situation beneath his notice. The morning after the Netherfield ball, he resolves to put as much distance between himself and her as possible.
That very morning, however, Elizabeth's future is jeopardized by her father's untimely accident. With Mr. Bennet unconscious and surrounded by concerned neighbors, Mr. Collins presses his suit. Elizabeth's mother frantically demands her acceptance to secure the family's welfare. With so many witnesses to his proposal and everyone expecting her to make a practical choice, Elizabeth's reputation hangs in the balance.
Without her father to defend her refusal of Mr. Collins, there is no one to speak up for her...except the last man in the world she would ever marry.

I loved this book. It was new to me. And I really enjoyed the narrator's way of telling. It felt like I was part of it. If you like Jane Austen fanfic and what if stories this is a book I highly recommend.

Story had promise, but Lizzy's not that dizzy!

I really loved the concept of this book. The plot line was well thought out, but I found Elizabeth to be inattentive, which she is not. She made many mistakes in judgment she shouldn't have if she had stayed true to her character and listened attentively. For example, in the case of her jumping to the conclusion that her father was economizing because Darcy made him buy Wickham's debts, was totally out of character for Elizabeth. Her father had plainly said that all he did was stand around while the other men did the work. The epilogue was somewhat disjointed, and did not flow well. It did wrap up all the loose ends and stayed true to J.A. but it felt hurried with way too much information to be imparted for an epilogue.
