Publisher's Summary

A Pride & Prejudice Novella

Elizabeth Bennet longs to see the view from the famous Black Rocks in Derbyshire, but her aunt and uncle refuse to allow her to climb to the highest rock outcroppings alone. Elizabeth's distress is only worsened by a chance encounter with Mr. Darcy - at least until he offers to escort her to the top. But unbeknownst to her, the Black Rocks have a very special meaning for him.

As Darcy tells her the tale of his parents' courtship and marriage, Elizabeth, like Darcy's mother before her, is forced to confront the true power of family and destiny atop the Black Rocks. Please note that this story is a novella, not a full-length novel.

Enjoyed Mr. Darcy's Parents Story

I thoroughly enjoyed this story of how Mr. Darcy's parents met and married. It was a delightful variation to Darcy meeting Elizabeth in Pemberly.

Tradition

I enjoyed this audible very much. The pace and tempo were good and additional background information on Fitzwilliam Darcy's family tree his parents' love story and the tie ins to Fitzwilliam's and DeBerg's houses, made it pleasurable. I found myself returning to this light little story more than once since I added it to my library.

Jane Austen would be proud!

Elizabeth Klett does a great English accent and diversifies her tone of voice for the different characters, making for a very enjoyable listening experience.
