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.

Lovely P & P Variation 😊

I am a huge Jane Austen fan and revisit her books quite often. I especially love Pride & Prejudice and periodically read new variations to reconnect with the characters and settings that I love so much. 💜

This P&P variation is delightful and very respectful of the original story and characters. Yes, this story is reminiscent of the movie "50 first dates" but it has its own twists and new characters that kept it fresh and interesting. It's truly a breath of fresh air for all Pride and Prejudice fans!

The narration is exquisite. Nancy Peterson makes this book come alive with her accents, inflections, and clear tone. There isn't a character in this book that doesn't have a unique voice. She has a God given talent that is a joy to listen to. 👏

I highly recommend this to those who enjoy Jane.Austen books! 🌠

A fun and Different Variation

This story is a fun variation that diverges after Darcy's proposal in Kent. There are trials and there is angst in this story. Mr. Collins is more unappealing in this story than in the original. Lady Catherine is so underhanded that I dislike her more. Elizabeth is in between a rock and a hard place when she helps to care for Mr. Darcy, after his injury. She has the same feeling for him after the disastrous proposal, but is the only one whom he trusts and who can calm him. They spend many hours and days together at Hunsford parsonage, of all places. There are a few new characters, the nurse, the doctor, and the cook. Georgiana shows up.

The narrator's performance was beautiful. This is the first time I have heard her narrate. Her accents for the cook and the nurse were well done. Her inflections brought out nuances of the dialogue between the characters that I missed when reading the book. I enjoyed her narration, especially how she voiced Mr. Collins; that made me laugh out loud.

I recommend this story and narration to anyone who enjoys JAFF and Regency Romances.
