Fourteen-year-old Elizabeth Bennet thought Fitzwilliam Darcy, her friend Georgiana's brother, was the most wonderful, handsomest man in the entire world. When he went to India to fight Britain’s enemies, she made him promise to write her along with Georgie regularly. There wasn't anything improper, since Georgiana and she had sworn to be sisters. When Elizabeth and Georgiana learned that Fitzwilliam was captured, they kept writing letters to him, so that when he was released, he would know that he had not been forgotten by those who loved him.
During the years of his imprisonment, Darcy never forgot his promise to write to little Lizzy Bennet, though he was sure she had long since forgotten about him. Before setting sail to England with the survivors of his regiment, he received the stack of letters written by Lizzy and Georgiana. Lizzy's letters were chatty, friendly, and confiding. He read and reread her words during the long voyage to England, and during those months, he fell in love with the kind, wonderful woman she had grown into.
But in England, Elizabeth's family had decided to force her to marry a wealthy man who terrified her....

I really enjoyed this story. I have read it several times. I had go through it once again since the release of the Audible version of the book.
This is one of favorite JAFF P&P variations.
I hope more stories by this author are released soon on Audible.

One of all time favorites.
If you could sum up Colonel Darcy: An Elizabeth and Darcy Story in three words, what would they be?
Heartbreak, love, and forgiveness.
What other book might you compare Colonel Darcy: An Elizabeth and Darcy Story to and why?
None that I know of, this story is about Darcy being a second son leaving England and being held prisoner in India. Then Darcy coming to Elizabeth’s rescue while losing contact with Georgianna because of prejudice by his family. There is a lot of heartbreak due to injustice for both Darcy and Elizabeth before they come together as a couple in love. I could not out the book down, then when the audiobook came out I had to have it!
Which character – as performed by Virginia Ferguson – was your favorite?
Darcy. His experiences and how they shaped him to overcome everything to give him peace and love.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Colonel Darcy and Elizabeth. I think that says enough.
Any additional comments?
This not your typical P&P. Darcy is a second son, Elizabeth’s family is horrible, even Jane. Darcy’s older brother is selfish while Georgianna is open and loving due to the early connection to Elizabeth. The Matlock’s are awful. The obstacles the couple face lessen when they finally come together, and learn to work together to save Georgianna from herself. You cannot help but cheer the Couple on.
