Publisher's Summary

What is a young woman to do? One handsome young man has all the goodness, while the other the appearance of it. How is she to separate the gentleman from the cad?

When Darcy joins his friend, Bingley, on a trip to Meryton, the last thing on his mind is finding a wife. Meeting Elizabeth Bennet changes all that, but a rival for his affections appears from a most unlikely quarter. He must overcome his naturally reticent disposition if he is to have a chance of winning her favor.

Elizabeth's thoughts turn to love and marriage after her sister, Mary's, engagement. In a few short weeks she goes from knowing no eligible young men, to being courted by two. Both are handsome gentleman, but one conceals secrets and the other conceals his regard. Will she determine which is which before she commits to the wrong one?

Very Good Story but...

Reader's voice was too babyish. They were young ladies. Her voice made them seem like preteens. And Jane the older sounded like a baby where as the youngest sounded older.

Excellent Pride & Prejudice Variation

An excellent third installment to the "Given Good Principles" series. In the first two books, we see back stories for Darcy and then Lizzy. in this book, we see how their different backgrounds affect their interactions once they meet. Highly recommended!

The Narration Ruins This...

This book is fine. Unfortunately, all the author's work is to no avail due to the overtly affectatious performance of the narrator. Pearl Hewett is absolutely horrendous! Not only should she tone down all those high pitched, whiney, and sometimes nasally women's voices, but she should stop trying to imitate men's voices completely! (Seriously...we're begging you...please stop.) Just do what you're paid to do...read the book.

Honestly, this made me cringe. I couldn't even finish listening to the book. A+ for the story. F- for the lame performance.

Narration kills it.

How could the performance have been better?

I couldn't stand the narrator's performance at all. Her interpretation of male voices put in mind old crochety men. It's very off putting. I enjoyed the previous two volumes and I'm upset that the conclusion I was so excited to get was spoiled by the performance.
