Publisher's Summary

A Pride & Prejudice Novella
Elizabeth Bennet longs to see the view from the famous Black Rocks in Derbyshire, but her aunt and uncle refuse to allow her to climb to the highest rock outcroppings alone. Elizabeth's distress is only worsened by a chance encounter with Mr. Darcy - at least until he offers to escort her to the top. But unbeknownst to her, the Black Rocks have a very special meaning for him.
As Darcy tells her the tale of his parents' courtship and marriage, Elizabeth, like Darcy's mother before her, is forced to confront the true power of family and destiny atop the Black Rocks. Please note that this story is a novella, not a full-length novel.

Enjoyed Mr. Darcy's Parents Story

I thoroughly enjoyed this story of how Mr. Darcy's parents met and married. It was a delightful variation to Darcy meeting Elizabeth in Pemberly.

Such a Sweet Variation!

Lizzy and the Gardiners are visiting the Black Rocks near Mr. Darcy's home in Derbyshire. Lizzy hasn't seen Darcy since he pressed his letter into her hand after his proposal at Hunsford, and she's stunned to see the proud man descending from the rocks. After introducing himself to the Gardiners, Darcy invites Lizzy to climb to the top with him. As they climb, Darcy relates the story of his parents and how James Darcy, a penniless second son, earned the love of Anne Fitzwilliam, an Earl's daughter.

This was such a sweet variation, a story within a story. I appreciate a variation that paints such a loving picture of Darcy's parents. The characters felt true to canon, and the interactions between Lizzy and Darcy were delightful. Elizabeth Klett's narration was wonderful, as always, and highly recommended. It was such a unique novella, I didn't want it to end. As I write this, I already want to listen to it again.

Wonderful

I think this is my favourite of this authors stories, which is really saying something.
I would love to see a full length sequel as there are so many thoings that remain unresolved; did the Darcy tradition skip Georgiana, or is she even now pining for Wickham? Will Lydia think better of eloping? Will Jane end up with Bingley, or will s her letter to Elizabeth bring news of her engagement to another? Will Lady Catherine be pleased for Darcy for once?
If one of the signs of a good story is not wanting it to end, then this is one of the best.
