Publisher's Summary

A Pride and Prejudice What if? Story

This re-telling of Pride and Prejudice asks "what if" events prevented Fitzwilliam Darcy from proposing to Elizabeth Bennet that day at Hunsford parsonage? Darcy arrives with marriage on his mind, only to find Elizabeth has just received news her father is critically ill and not expected to live. In the process of offering his help to her in traveling home, Darcy discovers what she really thinks of him - and it's not good. Should Darcy deliver Elizabeth home to be with her family and then disappear from her life, or should he propose another kind of help? Will Elizabeth be willing to sacrifice her future happiness to save her family from financial ruin? Or, do she and Darcy, two very stubborn people, have a chance of finding happiness together?

    Story
    "A Long Haul Getting Through This"
    What disappointed you about Mr. Darcy's Proposal?

    As a long time reader of Jane Austen fanfiction, I found this book so long and drawn out and unrealistic, even by Darcy & Lizzy misunderstanding standards, that I couldn't wait for it to be over and even skipped ahead a chapter or two a couple times.


    What was most disappointing about Susan Mason-Milks’s story?

    As fans of Pride & Prejudice know, Lizzy is smart and opinionated and not afraid to express what she's thinking. Why would she, even knowing that her husband finds her attractive and claims he loves her and shows her affection in between times of pulling away from her for no good reason, why would she go MONTHS and never ask him why he won't come to her bed and consummate their marriage? It makes absolutely no sense to me that she never calls him on this, especially as her feelings toward him get more loving and she thinks about the children she hopes to someday have with him. She is not the Lizzy I know and love and it's all very frustrating. They seem to make some headway and then he backs totally off again and she doesn't question him about it. The book should have been half as long.


    What aspect of Marian Hussey’s performance would you have changed?

    I didn't care for her voice for Darcy and even when there was specific "direction" in the written word as to how something was said, she didn't usually read it in the right way. Disappointing.


    What character would you cut from Mr. Darcy's Proposal?

    None. There were few extraneous characters in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I am familiar with the author's other works and maybe this just isn't her best. Maybe it's an earlier work before she has improved and tightened up her writing style. I wouldn't waste my money or credit on this one if you are a true lover of P&P and Darcy & Lizzy.

    A really good read, I would rank it in my top 10%.

    It is based around the original Pride and Prejudice, same ending however Darcy and Elizabeth's love story is told in a different way! Excellent!!!

    Every character, especially Mr Darcy.

    Susan Mason-Milks is an entertaining story teller, rebelling the story of how Mr Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett fell in love. Worth the read!!!
