When Colonel Fitzwilliam's disclosures are interrupted by the bearer of distressing news from Longbourn, Miss Elizabeth Bennet is compelled to accept an offer she would have otherwise dismissed out of hand. An offer of marriage from the all-too-proud Mr. Darcy. Yet how is she to live with a husband she hardly knows and does not love?
Talk about a book hang over. I've finished two other books since this one and I still love can't stop thinking about this one.
I've read and listened to a few other titles by Joana Starnes, but I think this one was my favorite.
Six years after Napoleon's invasion of England. Fitzwilliam Darcy is a traitor. He even admits to collaborating with Napoleon's troops. And Elizabeth Bennet despises all traitors. But she can't make sense of Darcy. He doesn't act like a traitor. He risks his own safety to save young women from the French. And how can she despise a man who loves puppies? Something about him doesn't add up - and she finds him far too attractive.
I didn't even bother to read what this book was about before purchasing because Abigail Reynolds has yet to publish something I haven't been able to put down. To say she has out done her self would be the understatement of the year.
The alternate history sets the backdrop for one of the most adventurous Pride and Prejudice stories I've ever had the pleasure to read/listen to.
I laughed, cried, and laughed again. The new characters were just as lovable as their original counterparts.
This story couldn't have been told better!
