あらすじ・解説

Darcy had never known such a woman, one who could rush into an inferno and emerge as bold and brilliant as burnished brass, bright as any mirror.

Fitzwilliam Darcy had planned to leave Netherfield Park and all thoughts of the enchanting Miss Elizabeth Bennet behind him - until one night when he saw smoke rising from Longbourn and realized she was in peril.

Elizabeth Bennet found Mr. Darcy arrogant and insufferable right up until he became her hero, pulling her and her sister from the fire that devastated their home and could have claimed both of their lives. Seeing how he put his own life at risk to pull her from the fire, how could she help but change her opinion of him?

Thrown together again in the refuge offered at Netherfield, Darcy and Elizabeth’s unexpected bond gains strength. But disapproval, debts, and doubts all arise when the costs in time and expense involved in rebuilding Longbourn threaten to widen the gulf standing between Elizabeth and Darcy in the eyes of society. Amidst these perplexities of destruction and decorum, can love’s courage overcome calamity?

Great story

I really enjoyed this book. It starts with a fire at Longbourn. Mrs Darcy rescues Elizabeth and then mr Bingley invites them all to Netherfield. Good start to a good story. Great narrator as well.

Good story. Excellent narration.

I enjoyed the storyline very much. Caress is a talented writer. Stevie Zimmerman never disappoints in her narration. I admit that determines many of the purchases I make. There are some editing issues that need to be addressed in this recording. Repeats and cuts that must have been overlooked.

A fun, low angst tale

I read a lot of Pride and Prejudice variations. A lot of them are mediocre, this is not one of them. There is very little in the way of angst for or heroine and hero, but events play out so believably and with such
perfect pacing that I really cannot bring myself to complain about it. I have definitely read variations where it feels like things happen too easily and unbelievably but this one escapes that impression. I really enjoyed the relationship between Elizabeth and Georgiana, this wasn't overdone like I've seen in some versions. Elizabeth is not a savior and the friendship feels genuine. There is a fun fortune telling scene with the girls that reminded me of Jane Eyre. I love variations that include something of the lifestyle in London and this features a small bit in London, as well as Hertfordshire and Kent. The climax and resolution are satisfying and rewarding. I'd love to see a sequel to this depicting married life after this variation, but that's just my own preference for continuations there probably! Thank you for a fun listen!

Interesting twist

This is an interesting twist on the original Pride and Prejudice, involving the same characters, locations and some of the plot, but completely rearranging the storyline!

Well read, and a decent story, excepting its occasional flippancy.

Well done!

Read a draft of this online several years ago & wondered how the author would resolve such a clever vagary. This audiobook is a lovely answer!

I especially appreciate that characters remain true to themselves as they face the extremis of the addition of a horrid fire. The author was particularly insightful as she imagined Elizabeth heroically struggling to maintain & sustain her family as well as Mr. Bennet attempting to face a world at Longbourn without a library that provided kindling for the blaze.

Love the writing, ODC’s snappy dialogues, Georgiana here & a few new minor characters plus our narrator Never disappoints! A buy

Heartbreaking and heartwarming

A wonderfully written story about courage and devotion in face of adversity. Both Elizabeth and Darcy proved what they were made of during a disastrous fire at Longbourn. ODC could only admire each other after their heroics though they had a long road to HEA. Bingley showed his compassion and good heart as well, which can't be said about his sisters. The Bennet family had to learn how to live in reduced circumstances.

Stevie Zimmerman 's narration great as usual, dramatic during the events and romantic with Darcy and Elizabeth. A beautifully emotional book masterfully written and narrated.

Highly recommended.

Brilliant variation

I’ve listened to sooo many P&P variations & rarely write reviews but this one is really, really good.
The author ensures the characters stay true to the original.
This story starts just after Jane recovers from her cold & returns home to Longbourne with Elizabeth.
The listener is then taken on a wonderfu journey with both protagonists as they find love. Such a joy!
I have to mention the brilliant narration by the wonderful Stevie Zimmerman.
I really can’t recommend this story enough

Could have been written by Jane herself

Lovely story! Very well written... such a good imitation of Austen's language it feels like it could have been written by Jane herself. It was very enjoyable to listen to this alternate story where the Bennet's family home is badly burned and causes events to follow a different course. Characters are very in-keeping with the originals. Some clever references to original speeches, with some interesting twists. My favourite P & P variation of several I have listened to.
