Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy seem determined to misunderstand one another, and after his disastrous proposal, both are eagerly wishing to forget their acquaintance. But fate, with assistance from Darcy’s scheming cousins, contrives to keep them together.  

When Miss Darcy is summoned to Kent, the couple has a chance to begin anew, and their budding friendship carries them to London and Hertfordshire. Their feelings deepen but before their new understanding is made known, Elizabeth is sent to Brighton as chaperone to her youngest sister. Her stay there ends in ruin when Darcy’s past comes to call. 

Upon discovering the situation is worse than he feared, Darcy determines he must be the one to make things right. His departure leaves Elizabeth in doubt and their future in question. Was their love too new to withstand a scandal? 

A series of missed chances, misdirected letters, and miscommunications keeps the couple apart; it make require the intervention of their nearest relations to bring them back together.

Original Pride and Prejudice Variation

The story had some new premises, that I, as a jaded Janeite still enjoyed. Kay Bea is a new author to me, but I would definitely purchase other books written by her. However, the choice of narrator was underwhelming. His male voices, particularly Darcy’s, were rich and full. However, every single female voice was strained and slightly higher pitched, with an almost wooden lack of expression. Every sentence spoken by a female character was delivered with the same bland, monotonous cadence.
If I hadn’t cared for the story, I wouldn’t have been able to listen at all.
I have hundreds of audible books, and I’m sorry to say, I will be careful in the future not to purchase any others narrated by William Matthews.

Nice story

I enjoyed this story very much. The narrator was new to me and I thought he sometimes sounded a bit stiff. But good all over.

Flat narration and slow, dragging plot

This story wasn’t bad but it dragged on and on...likely made worse by the flat narration. Had it been given a more upbeat reading (say, Stevie style) it may have been easier to take in, seem less slow, and better able to engage and hold my attention.
