Publisher's Summary

An impertinent stranger is thrown into Fitzwilliam Darcy's path and, even though he declares her tolerable but not handsome enough to tempt him, it is all he can do not to think of her. Upon first making Mr. Darcy's acquaintance, Miss Elizabeth Bennet is quite fascinated with him. Then she discovers that the gentleman is haughty and above his company, and she wants nothing to do with him. Still, the prospect of spending time in each other's company is beyond their power to resist. Will Darcy and Elizabeth stop denying the truth to themselves and find in the other what's been missing in their lives?

They first meet in Kent


I enjoyed this well written variation of Darcy and Elizabeth's story that begins when they first meet in Kent, while Elizabeth is visiting the Collins's. Pam Dixon keeps the characters true to canon. Pearl Hewitt's narration brings the characters and story to life. Each character's voice is distinct which makes the story so easy to listen to and she brings out their emotions perfectly. This is an enjoyable story and Pearl Hewitt's narration makes it enjoyable to listen to. I highly recommend the audio version of this story.

Quick Lighthearted Listen

In this Pride and Prejudice variation, Lizzy and Darcy first meet while Lizzy is visiting the Collins at Kent. Without Darcy's haughty manner at the Meryton assembly and his intervention in Bingley and Jane's romance, it seems at first like they might be friends. But Lizzy makes the mistake of mentioning the other Derbyshire gentleman she knows to Mr. Darcy. His immediate abhorrence of Mr. Wickham makes her dislike Mr. Darcy. But he seems determined to spend time in her company.

This was an interesting variation that put most of the action at Rosings, there is more of Lady Catherine and very little of the Bennet family and the Bingleys. I loved Lizzy and Darcy's meetings over the pianoforte, it was such a cozy picture. It did stick in my throat to see Lizzy cling to her admiration for Mr. Wickham over the advice of everyone. But it does make sense if you compare it to her determined dislike of Mr. Darcy in the original Pride and Prejudice. This was a sweet variation that I'll be listening to again.

The narration is wonderful, Pearl Hewitt has a pleasant voice and the perfect accent for the book. She performs speaking voices for the characters and it was a great performance as usual.

Impertinence & Romance

Once again Pam and Pearl enchant their readers and listeners with another 'what if' story about Darcy and Elizabeth. It starts in Kent at Rosings, where Elizabeth for the first time meets Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy of Pemberley in Derbyshire - and from there the romance and impertinence grows.
Scandal, romance, shock and anxiety is just some of the subjects in this wonderful new story! Personally I can't wait for more stories from Pam's talented pen and lively imagination.

A good Variation

Lizzie's refusal of Colin's happens before Charles Bingley let's netherfeild. in this way Elizabeth meets Mr Darcy at Rosings not the neighborhood Assembly. Characters are true to the original and the story is sweet. This was a very enjoyable P&P variation read well by the narrator.
