Colonel James Fitzwilliam is home. The war has left him weary, battle-scarred - and a free man of fortune ready to find a wife. He travels to Pemberley, his second home. There he meets Kitty Bennet. Her unexpected charms soon have him questioning his familial duty and his expectations. A fight looms on the horizon when his aunt - Lady Catherine de Bourgh - and his parents arrive with their own plans for his future.
Kitty Bennet has found happiness. At Pemberley, she has improved herself and formed true friendships with her sister Lizzy and Georgiana Darcy. Kitty is captivated by the gentlemanly Colonel Fitzwilliam. But she will not be silly over a redcoat again, and she will not risk her happiness - or his family’s displeasure - for his attentions. Colonel Fitzwilliam, Darcy, Lizzy, and Georgiana have their say, and Kitty learns a new lesson - love will find you at Pemberley.

Jane Austen Fan - Must read

Sweet talk with attitude. A great classic llisten.
As a life long Jane Austen fan, I wasn't sure if I would take to a 'what if' story; but I was pleasantly surprised, and I really enjoyed this novella, and it's 'voice'.
The rather overlooked, Kitty Bennett, finds her own voice in this highly 'listenable to version'. The narration hits just the right tone, and shows off the writing beautifully. It is no mean feat to take the Kitty character and develop it into something so authentic. The author does this really well, and I got so absorbed in the story, I forgot to do some essential tasks, and some of my other worries just went out of the window. That, in my opinion is the essence of a good book.
The author has paid attention to some crucial details; which make the book credible, and the English narration, with its delicacy and simplicity, adds to the whole experience. Highly recommended by me; and I am not easily pleased!
I loved the dialogue, particularly.
A really good combination of words well written and well narrated.
