Publisher's Summary

Undaunted by a threatening storm, Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley insists he must deliver his letter to Miss Elizabeth Bennet - then tragedy strikes. Riddled with guilt, Elizabeth comes to the aid of the comatose Mr. Darcy and stays by his side until he regains consciousness. She soon learns that although Mr. Darcy has awoken, he has not returned to himself. And with no memory of his first disastrous proposal, he has concluded that there is nothing he wants more than to propose to Miss Elizabeth. This humorous journey of love leaves one asking, can persistence pacify prejudice? Can Elizabeth see the real gentleman behind the injury, a man who persists in professing his love to her every chance he gets? In this regency variation of Jane Austen's beloved Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet both learn the value of persistence.

A worthwhile P&P Variation/

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

There are many, many P&P variations out there. This was well done. Plain and simple.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I would want to listen and read all P&P variations in one sitting! I love P&P and truly enjoy Austen fan fiction to read other's take on plausible variations. I don't like when authors change P&P characters a lot -- somethings must be maintained as Miss Austen originally created!

Any additional comments?

Lots of drama

A wonderful, interesting and entertaining Pride and Prejudice variation. Lots of drama, suspense and angst. Love it. The story was unique from other variations I've read.

Nancy Peterson did a really good job. Great performance.

This is by far and in every way the very worst book I have ever bought on Audible. Jane Austen must be turning in her grave at this awful treatment of her characters. It is also the very worst narration I have ever heard, which made me feel that Audible is playing a horrid joke on its customers by listing it as a book to be purchased. It deserves no stars whatsoever and I will be returning it as soon as possible.
The best advice I can give to genuine lovers of Pride and Prejudice is to avoid this travesty like the plague. I thought P.D James' Death Comes to Pemberley was bad enough but at least it is well written and her characters bear some resemblance to Jane's, whereas here - well words fail me on every front!
