Elizabeth lives a charmed life - or so it seems. Despite her noble relations and all the wealth and privileges entailed, there's something missing.
During his stay at Netherfield Park in Hertfordshire, Darcy learns of a tragedy that befell the Bennets, a family from a neighboring estate, over a decade prior. One of the Bennet daughters vanished in broad daylight from the streets of Lambton. Will Darcy unravel the mystery behind the disappearance of the second-born Bennet daughter? What if it means losing the one woman who has captured his heart?

Lady Elizabeth is another variation of Pride and Prejudice. The story begins with the abduction of Elizabeth. She is being raised as the granddaughter of the Duke of Dunmore. Already the Duke has arranged Elizabeth to marry one of his peers to ensure his family's allegiance and power.
Fifteen years later, Elizabeth meets Darcy, who is her supposed half-brother, Avery's friend. Both Elizabeth and Darcy hit it off very well with one another except the Duke didn't want Darcy to ruin his plan for Elizabeth.
During Darcy's stay at Netherfield Park in Hertfordshire, he learned of the tragedy that the Bennets has suffered the lost of their second daughter. As Darcy placed the clues together, he became certain that Lady Elizabeth Montlake is Elizabeth Bennet. Even though Darcy knew that the revelation meant losing Elizabeth, he goes forward and informed Elizabeth the truth.
The story doesn't really end with a cliff hanger. Readers/Listeners knows that Elizabeth must continued her journey to learn of her biological family. They will also knows that eventually Elizabeth and Darcy will find each other but the readers/listeners will have to take that journey to find out what will happened to Elizabeth and Darcy for the ending that all of us believe will happened.
The narrator, Pearl Hewitt does a wonderful job of narrating Lady Elizabeth. She has the right tone for Elizabeth and Darcy.
I was given this audiobook by the narrator via Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated or influenced in any way for writing this review.
Series Info: Book #1 of 2 in a completed series
Like a movie adaptation of a book, certain scenes were kept but moved to a new place & time and certain speeches were given to a different character. It allowed for the story to be totally different and yet still rooted in the original.
There was brief swearing by a female character, which I found very jarring due to the time period. And high born people back then did not insist on marrying for love. Overall, it didn’t feel true to it’s time.
However, I did really like the relationship that developed between Darcy & Elizabeth. I actually would have preferred for the book to be longer, so we could have had more of their interactions before all the secrets came out.
It ended at a logical point, but you will definitely have to read the sequel in order to get the whole story.
Narration: Was a bit jarring at first, but I got used to it. / I didn’t love her “voices,” especially the one for the 4 year old Lizzie (but that one was only used briefly)
I am a working woman in a man's world but it's ok because I really love being around men !! I've been happily married for 48 years!
Lady Elizabeth is charming, sweet but spicy !!
Lady Elizabeth is my favorite because she is so witty and intelligent. I love hearing her banter with the men !
Pearl gives a wonderful performance and has a great accent. I love listening to her.
Historical Romance Still Holds True In the Modern Day
I am always amazed at the way people spoke back in those times. They have a unique way of getting their messages across. It's really refreshing to know you're not going to hear any foul language !!

better then i was expecting. very good interesting story
I put off buying this book for a long time because of some unfavorable reviews. This book is gripping. I am so glad I purchased it. Now for book 2!
Pam has done it again! A book that was nearly impossible to put down. The heinous crime at the beginning that only a peer of the realm could hide. Elizabeth falling in love and being thwarted by her 'grandfather'. The awful secret of Elizabeth's origins finally coming out and the culprit finally coming to light. An amazing different take on Pride and Prejudice. And Darcy is so lovable. Pearl Hewitt's narration is amazing. Throughout the 2 volumes the voices are consistent. Her interpretation of the story is wonderful, making you feel you are standing in the room with everything going on around you.
I have the print version, but I love most of the audible versions more. Pearl Hewitt makes ms dixon said story come alive for me.
I believe it was when she found out who she really was . That scene with Jane was electric .
The 2 I like the best was the Duke and Elizabeth. .
Will their love survive status difference ?
The ending was so surprising. Already put the next on my wish list !!
Lady Elizabeth ~ Everything Will Change by P.O. Dixon is an interesting alternative telling of how Elizabeth and Darcy meet and fall in love. The story begins when a 4-year old Elizabeth is kidnapped by the Duke of Dunsmore after the death of his son and own young daughter. Growing up in a neighboring county near Lambton, Lizzie lives a charmed life in the country with a loving family and an older brother. It just happens her brother is friends with a certain Mr. Darcy, and their paths occasionally.
It's comforting to hear of familiar friends, even if not in exactly the same way Jane Austen wrote them. Besides Darcy and Elizabeth, the Bingleys and even Wickham are included in the story. It's during a trip to Netherfield Park in Hertfordshire that Darcy learns of the disappearance one of the Bennet's daughters over a dozen years before. It's not long afterward that he unravels the mystery.
Pearl Hewitt did an excellent job narrating, as she always does. She has a wonderful voice that differentiates between male and female characters, especially young characters. Pearl was a joy to listen to and really enhanced my enjoyment of this audiobook. I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest unbiased review.
