あらすじ・解説

Enlightenment dawned, sharp and painful in its glaring exactitude. He knew. From the moment she had uttered her true name, he had known that she was not free. So why was he here? Why did he still look at her in that way? Why could she see the adoration in his eyes and the torment in his features? Had he come to say goodbye? To leave her to this fate?

Confused and chastened following her cruel rejection of Mr. Darcy’s proposal, Elizabeth Bennet returns to her aunt’s home in Gracechurch Street. Unable to find solace while pondering her terrible misjudgment of his character, she is overwhelmed with guilt for how she treated the puzzling gentleman from Derbyshire. Fitzwilliam Darcy has retreated to his London home after being spurned by the lady he loves, and after serious reflection has come to the realisation that he never deserved Elizabeth’s good opinion. 

A chance encounter with Mr. Darcy brings Elizabeth the opportunity to seek forgiveness, and possibly, a new start to their budding romance. But the introduction of a stranger into Elizabeth’s life threatens to reveal old family secrets that have the potential to truly unravel her world and all that she holds dear.

Forgotten Betrothal Review

I feel the story had so much potential, I would have like to see more of Elizabeth efforts to keep a relationship with her Bennet family. The end felt to me a bit hurried up and there wasn’t much of what happened after even with a Prolog. I just felt that could have had a bit more. Performance was ok although some voices were hard to relate to the characters. Overall ok book to listen to once, I don’t think I would add this title to my favorites.

Great compliment to a beloved story

Listening or reading this novel will be a delight to those who have loved the story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. This story was able to take an idea that would have been plausible and link directly into the well known story that Jane Austen penned so many years back.
The language was so familiar to how Austen wrote that this novel felt like it was from the same era.
I was able to listen this in less than a week while also reading the novel in paperback form as well.
The performance was very well done and an enjoyment to listen to. It is highly likely I will listen again.

Another cradle betrothal, but not THAT one!

This story has a different twist from the usual JAFF tale, although it is not too very far off from the original.

It is a good story, but could possibly use a good Editor to keep it from rambling and occasionally backtracking to get to the end.

You don’t need to pay close attention to know what’s happening.

I’ve never done this before, but I will recommend a different book in this review instead. This plot twist was better done by Mary Anne Mushatt with her story “Taken”, and as an added benefit, that one is narrated by Stevie Zimmerman. So, if you haven’t decided yet, or heard Taken, chose that instead.

Where this plot differs is that Lizzie is the babe betrothed in her cradle, not Darcy, which is the critical issue to overcome.

Romantic, witty, interesting and Jane Austeny

I was pleasantly surprised by this audio book since I didn't know the author or the narrator. I loved the premise, the way the relationship between Elizabeth and Darcy progressed, the low angst and the dialogue.
I also appreciated the fact that the characters stayed true to the original portrail.
At times I would have liked to hear less about the secondary characters, but once I discovered that it didn't take any time from the main characters interaction I was happy to go along with the side stories.
I wholeheartedly recommend this to any Pride and Prejudice lover. I look forward to this author's next book!
