This novella begins in the aftermath of a failed attack, with Elizabeth bent over the battered body of her attacker and bruises just forming on her skin. Darcy and Bingley are the first to witness the scene, and Elizabeth clutches at Darcy as her only refuge. His arms and muttered words are the only things holding her together. Darcy and Mr. Bennet quickly plan to take Elizabeth to safety as Meryton revolts at the news of the attack.
While the subject matter may be disturbing, I thought the novella was beautifully written and handled the situation delicately. This version of Darcy, tender, caring, and articulate, was a pleasure. Our poor Lizzy is missing most of her archness due to the attack, but we still witness her strength of character.
As a novella, there's not much time for an intricate plot, but the author makes up for it with beautiful dialogue. And Stevie Zimmerman handles the narration effortlessly, her low pitch for Darcy is absolute perfection. I'm looking forward to Christie Capps' next release.

Would you consider the audio edition of For Pemberley to be better than the print version?
Stevie Zimmerman's narration pictures the feelings of the characters perfectly.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The scenes in Mrs. Carr's cottage.
Any additional comments?
This is a beautifully written story of survival and recovery. Elizabeth learns how to become strong again, and Darcy is a tower of strength. Mrs. Carr is a very interesting, original characters who guides Elizabeth on her path. The ending is heartwarming.
