Publisher's Summary

What happens when Jane Austen's immortal characters are thrust into 21st-century Pennsylvania, with an all-male twist?
Liam Bennet has always been a good judge of character, but when William Darcy is thrown into his social circle, everything spins out of control. Darcy is proud, cold, arrogant - and strangely captivating. When Liam's brother and Darcy's business partner start seeing each other, Liam cannot avoid this enigmatic businessman. But does he want to?
As Liam struggles to find his identity in college and acknowledge his feelings, he must deal with the fortunes of his four brothers, his gossiping mother, and the possibility of a large inheritance that could save his family from financial ruin. Emotions come to a boil when George Wickham, a world-weary musician, stumbles into town and ignites a feud with Darcy. He threatens to expose a long-hidden past, and Liam must decide for himself who William Darcy really is and what he really wants.

Rusty gives the characters unique tones that shows the region of the story.


Any additional comments?

Only a few times did I find that the different voices of the characters slightly overlapped when moving back and forth in a conversation. Mostly this occurred when going from a male to female character.

Worth a listen

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story was interesting, and I enjoyed it. However, it definitely ran on too long. I found myself getting bored about 2 hours from the end. It could have used a tighter, less rambling ending.


Did Rusty Topsfield do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

The narrator did a good job performing the novel; however, he needs a lot of work on his voices. I was confused at times since some of the characters sounded very similar. Other than the voices, his narration was very good.
