あらすじ・解説

“He is the kind of man, indeed, to whom I should never dare refuse anything which he condescended to ask.” (Mr. Bennet, Pride and Prejudice Volume III, Chapter 17)

It had never occurred to Fitzwilliam Darcy that once he had chosen a bride, her father might dare to refuse his consent. When his dearest, loveliest Elizabeth is taken from him with only a curt note of explanation, he determines that, far from accepting her father’s rejection of his suit, he must instead find her again and make his case. After all, a woman worthy of being pleased is also worth fighting for.

Several months shy of her majority, it is not so simple a thing to defy Mr. Bennet’s will, but Elizabeth, for the sake of her future happiness, must try. With various allies in her corner, as well as foes standing against her, Elizabeth’s courage must rise against all attempts at intimidation. Even from her own, much beloved father.

What a Wonderful Surprise

This book starts off with a series of surprises for JAFF readers, but it results in a wonderful storyline that is fresh, yet familiar.

The first thing that convinced me to give this author, that was new to me, a try was that it was narrated by Stevie Zimmerman. Aside from one minor editing issue in a later chapter, not her fault 😀, listening to this story was, as usual, enhanced by her reading. She has a distinct, believable, voice for each character and her delivery is excellent throughout.

I am adding this to my “favorites” as it was more than worth the credit and will be another I could listen to again.

Very enjoyable

I finished this in a day. I liked the approach that the author took in regards to Mrs. Bennett and the younger girls. There was a solidarity and a sense of real affection that most variations tend to say exists but never show. Mrs. Bennett especially is given some positive attention and is allowed to shine in a way that still feels true to the character. There are no dramatic misunderstandings between Darcy and Elizabeth since they actually communicate with and have faith in each other.

As always, Stevie Zimmerman gives a perfect performance. She is my favorite narrator.

Good story

An interesting story, very well wand narrated. I liked the premise that Darcy and Elizabeth were already in love and kept apart by the will of her father. I had no problem with Me Bennet's attitude in this story, it was unlike the original but showed the absolute powers of a father over an underage daughter very well.
Stevie Zimmerman 's narration flawless as usual.

Enjoyable

I quite enjoyed this story but really disliked Mr Bennett's petulant nature, his cruelty towards his declared favorite, his selfishness and his arrogance.

Pleasant Read

The story itself is good and well thought out. I like the way Smythe portrays the Bennett family. The performance by Zimmerman is excellent as always. There is a spot on the audio though that got missed during editing. In chapter 30 around 7:30 a small blip happens but it’s over in a few seconds and none of the story is missed.

Lovely story

I highly recommend this book to a Jane Austen fan fiction lover. The narrator did a great job too, as usual.
