Publisher's Summary

A tale of danger, abduction and romance.

Shortly after the Netherfield ball, Elizabeth Bennet begins a journey to London with her travelling companions, Mr. Bingley’s sisters and the proud, arrogant Mr. Darcy. Suddenly, their carriage is abruptly stopped, and Elizabeth hears the menacing cry, “Stand and deliver!”

The leader of a band of highwaymen, Nate Morgan, a handsome, masked rogue, plans to seize Elizabeth for his amusement, but Darcy steps forward and offers himself as a hostage in her place. When his proposal fails to secure Elizabeth’s release, Darcy makes a shocking declaration? Elizabeth is his wife!

At a time when a woman’s future could be ruined by the slightest hint of scandal, Elizabeth’s reputation will depend not only upon the actions of a hero but a villain as well. 

Filled with excitement, daring and passion, The Journey follows Jane Austen’s beloved characters from Pride and Prejudice as they embark on a fateful journey that changes their lives forever.

A journey interrupted... Adventure, love and misunderstandings

Review of The Journey by Jan Hahn

A journey to London is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of highwaymen, who overtakes the Bingley coach. Darcy and Elizabeth are taken as hostages, and taken to a cabin in the woods. One of the highwaymen Mr. Morgan, takes an avid interest in Darcy and Elizabeth during their hostage-situation and release.

After the adventures in the woods, Darcy and Elizabeth returns to town, where much drama ensues, many misunderstandings and all the whole feelings are growing, changing and maturing alongside Darcy and Elizabeth as they weather scandal, disgrace and the trials of the highwaymen.

Finally during the celebratory betrothal dinner of Jane and Bingley, Elizabeth makes her way to Darcy to set the record straight after yet another misunderstanding. This sets the course of happiness for the beloved couple of Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet.

The voice of Leena, makes Elizabeth and Darcy very sensitive, maybe even vulnerable, but mostly to each other throughout the story.

Superb story!

Superb story — one of my favorite Austen-inspired stories — by a favorite writer — and narrated by a wonderful voice actress! Not to be missed.

Well, beginning was good.

After an entertaining start this book became mired in tedium. Too bad. Narrator had a bit of a nasal, wining quality. Not bad narration, but not stellar.
