あらすじ・解説

A resentful husband. A miserable wife. How can their marriage survive when “for better, for worse” becomes worse...and worse...and worse?

Elizabeth Bennet does not want to marry Fitzwilliam Darcy. He's rude, arrogant, and selfish. But her father's illness changes everything: If she holds out for love, her family may be destitute. Hoping Mr. Darcy's friends are right - that he is truly a better man than she knows - she accepts him. Afterward she begins to glimpse the generous, affectionate man she'd heard about. Until he learns what she really thinks of him.

Furious and betrayed, ensnared by a fortune-hunter who hates him, Fitzwilliam Darcy is nevertheless a man of his word. He will marry Elizabeth Bennet, but he will never again trust her with his heart. Returning to Pemberley and his sham of a marriage, he can hardly bear to be in the same room with his wife. Then he falls, and the real troubles begin.

Shakespeare wrote, “The course of true love never did run smooth,” but the Bard never scripted a path so perilous as Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy's. Join them as they face disasters both natural and man-made in search of their happy ending.

Unique Twist

Wow what a ride! I will say this up front, this one is not for the faint of heart. At times the depth of the despair seems so severe that you think there's no way our heros will find a way to claw themselves out of it.

The level of detail the author uses for some of the medical mystery in this adds a richness to the story that makes it especially believable. There are some circumstances later on I found sort of less believable, mainly involving a seeming disregard of social mores of the era but I still enjoyed the story immensely.

A very new different story

I know someone mentioned that they didn’t like the narrator but I love the rasp in her voice. I’d like to listen to more books read by her. I found that the story held my interest because it was so different from the normal pride and prejudice variations.

Narrator was a distraction

This Pride and Prejudice variation was interesting; however, as I continued listening the narrator’s voice became increasingly irritating. The performance was overly dramatic, and Georgiana’s voice made me cringe. I did manage to finish the book.

One disaster after another

I have read a few JAFF novels were there is a tragedy or a disaster that either gets the story started, or sends romance off course for awhile, but this couple….WOW.

Spoiler Alert. It is not just amazing that they find a way to have a HEA ending, it is amazing they lived through it long enough to survive. Tragedy, injury, sickness, plague, famine, insanity, heart break, more injury, another injury, arrest and a trial, more devastating news and tragedy. Even our Beloved Pemberly isn’t spared.

The narrator doesn’t do male voices well, Mr. Darcy sounds like a woman with a sore throat

Almost returned this one, to be honest, but I was able to finish it…sample before committing.

Great story

This story was different due to an annulment. Very interesting and it hooked me early on. Great Jaff
