Publisher's Summary

How do Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet overcome the consequences of poor decisions made by their fathers when Darcy and Elizabeth were young? In A Father's Sins, Mr. George Darcy, father of an illegitimate child raised by his steward, Mr. Wickham, agreed with his wife, Anne, that the firstborn son of their marriage would be heir to Pemberley. However, Mr. Darcy loved his eldest son, George Wickham, and indulged him by bringing him to Pemberley to live after the death of his wife. His heir, Fitzwilliam Darcy, paid a heavy price for this decision. Mr. Thomas Bennet, an educated gentleman and father of five daughters, favored his second born, Elizabeth. Unexpectedly, his wife gave birth to a son and heir. Mr. Bennet, at the persistent urging of his wife, chose not to have his youngest children vaccinated for smallpox. When the plague hit Longbourn it devastated their family. Elizabeth paid the heaviest price for this decision of her father. What happens when Darcy and Elizabeth meet? Will they be able to overcome the consequences of the choices their fathers made? When George Wickham, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, Mr. William Collins, and the Fitzwilliam family arrive in Meryton, how will that impact their growing attraction? How does the same decision by Mr. Bennet influence the relationship between Jane Bennet and Mr. Bingley? Will love have a chance?

    I'm a voracious fiction reader/listener but focus mostly on Sci-fi, fantasy (urban and alternate & other world), and romance. A mixture of these is what I love to find. Sci-fi to challenge my mind, fantasy to make me grin, and romance to turn my mind off to.

    Story
    "fun story, annoying narrator, but its fixable!"

    The story is nothing out of the ordinary in this P&P genre, but still good fun. Imagine Elizabeth as a doctor! Or at least an apothecary. Not really a spoiler but be aware Mr Bennet is the villain of the piece, so there are quite a few character licenses to be had.
    The story has a lot of great historical background, for the time. and the tone is generally light and fun. a few of the plot twists made me think more of a Charles Dickens impersonation, ala Nicholas Nickleby, than Jane Austen. It pokes fun at the times, the characters occasionally feel like caricatures, and event generally feel either too good or too bad to be true.
    Now about the narrator, I'll just say listen to sample. If you don't mind her, great! If you do get as annoyed as I did, be aware that if you listen to this at 1.25 to 1.5 times speed she becomes completely tolerable.
