When Georgiana Darcy comes to Netherfield to visit her brother, she becomes friends with a neighbor, Elizabeth Bennet. After Miss Darcy has returned to London, she invites her new friend to stay with her at the Darcy home in town, unbeknownst to Mr. Darcy.
Will this change in circumstances lead to a change in affections?

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.
The story was very sweet, if much more long winded than necessary. I understand that the author wanted to recreate the series of misunderstandings that were the original, but every thing seemed drawn out. That being said there were some great scenes. I loved Lizzy's worries over being rude.
My major gripe is the voices of the "matrons." Mrs Bennett, lady Catherine, and Lady Matlock. they are way too nasal and read way to fast.
Am I glad I bought this? Yes
"A delicious experience"
The reader's voice was varied, interesting and gave a delicious sense of confiding secrets about the characters.
Darcy, as he was as infuriating as ever!
The voices of all the different characters were wonderfully conveyed.
I laughed, or more accurately, smiled often,but also became involved in the love story again.
A thoroughly enjoyable reading and I will try others by Brigid Lohrey.
