Publisher's Summary

Trapped for three days by a flood, and trapped forever by society because of it....
The river isn't the only thing overflowing in Hunsford when a natural disaster forces Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy to work together. The residents of flood-stricken Hunsford, seeking refuge in the parsonage atop the hill, are unaware they are interrupting Darcy's disastrous proposal. Even worse, the flood has washed out the only bride to Rosings Park, stranding Darcy with the woman who has just refused his offer of marriage. But it may already be too late to redeem Elizabeth's reputation. In this Pride and Prejudice variation, the lane dividing the Hunsford parsonage from Rosings Park has been replaced by one of the flood-prone Kentish rivers. The storms are real - the spring of 1811 was remarkable for numerous thunderstorms in Southeast England.

Good Story, Terrible narration

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The character's voices were unnerving. The men all sounded old and crotchety with scratchy voices (including Mr. Darcy - gasp!) and most of the women sounded like they had head colds.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes

I was surprised by the explicit sex scenes

What did you like best about Mr. Darcy's Refuge: A Pride & Prejudice Variation? What did you like least?

I liked the treatment of some of the peripheral characters (e.g. Colonel Fitzwilliam and Jane). I think Elizabeth was true to her personality but I think the author went overboard on Darcy, especially the sex-crazed representations.

Reynold's best P&P variation to date

Would you consider the audio edition of Mr. Darcy's Refuge: A Pride & Prejudice Variation to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version yet!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the drama of the flood, Mr Bennet's over-reaction to the publication of Elizabeth's engaement and Jane's choice of husband.

Have you listened to any of Pearl Hewitt’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, I have. This is her best so far.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

In some of her other books Ms Reynolds dwelt too much on sexual detail, which made reading/listening somewhat tedious and a little boring; this time the balance was just right.
