A lovely, thoughful variation

I like alternative stories that stay true to the characters, wit and restraint of the original. I needed to enjoy the goodness in P&P without a lot of angst and this was just right. The romance is romantic and not graphic, which I prefer.

There are several insights into the reasons behind the decisions of characters like Collins, for example, that I felt added to what we know.

The narrator has a talent for taking on the inflections from the version starring Colin Firth which I really enjoyed.

One could find fault but when finished I felt completely satisfied.

What did you love best about To Refuse Such a Man?

Short and sweet, low on angst.


Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this little story very much. Though it's one of the Netherfield library 'compromise' tale, it had a few unusual and amusing twists. It was well written and low on angst. Wickham didn't have time to poison Lizzy's mind, so ODC got to understand each other much sooner.. I enjoyed their interactions very much.

My only quibble is about some gaps in the timeline, which I wished were filled. It is still a good story for an afternoon of relaxation.
