Mr. Darcy is at his wits' end. Elizabeth Bennet, the woman he can't live without, overhears him insulting her family. Now she won't even listen to his apologies. Then his old friend Sir Anthony Duxbury tells him two of their friends are in terrible danger. If Darcy wants to help them, they have to leave for Yorkshire immediately.
But something doesn't add up. Elizabeth claims to know Sir Anthony, too - but by a different name. What game is his old friend playing? And is it dangerous?
Even Sir Anthony says the trip is dangerous. The Luddite rebels are on the verge of armed revolt - and he should know, because he's one of them. Darcy's cousin Lady Frederica decides she's going with them anyway, and insists on bringing Elizabeth. Could this be Darcy's chance to earn Elizabeth's forgiveness and her love?
Elizabeth would rather face a squad of Napoleon's soldiers than spend three days trapped in a carriage with Darcy and his headstrong cousin, but she has her own reason for agreeing to come. If she can just manage to keep her temper, she may be able to rescue her uncle from financial ruin.
But when a Luddite riot erupts around them, it's Darcy and Elizabeth who need rescuing - from each other.
Mr. Darcy's Journey is a variation on Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice by nationally best-selling author Abigail Reynolds.

If you love the Darcy's you'll enjoy this!
This is another great variation to the Elizabeth & Darcy story. It weaves in enough of the original story to keep the spirit of JA’s book part of this story, however, the mix of circumstances develops into a new story. The story seems to get into more detail about the political situation at the time, how it affected friends and family and how Darcy and Elizabeth managed through it. Elizabeth Klett is the narrator and does an excellent job. She helps make the story engaging with her ability to distinguish each character with a unique voice. I can easily recommend this audiobook. I also must say that I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.
Mr. Darcy's Journey
I love the historic period, the look into the lives, beliefs, customs and thoughts of the people living in the time period.
We all know the basics of P&P, what I love is the details into everyday lives, seeing the characters we love as real people dealing with real life situations.
I enjoyed both Darcy and Elizabeth.
we learned Darcy is so much more than the strict noble. The way he treated the people who work for him was remarkable. He comes off as prideful and set in his ways, but as a lord , e was good to his subjects.
I liked discovering more about the everyday Darcy, the person with responsibilities, a young sister to protect, a manor to manage etc. Seeing how he deals with each situation that requires his attention speaks for his character.
Elizabeth was also a revelation. We see she did develop an attachment to Wikham. She, with her sense, was blinded by his sweet talk and lies. It showed us a more human and relatable Elizabeth.
I loved the book and Elizabeth's narration from beginning to end.
She used the perfect tone to narrate each character, their different modes. She conveyed their characters with her tone of voice and added to an already beautiful story.
