Product Description

Product Description

Miss Elizabeth Bennet knew things had changed for the worse after her youngest sister had disgraced her family and eloped with the reprobate, George Wickham. After he refused to marry Lydia, only her Uncle Gardiner’s intervention saved the family as he found the couple and forced the marriage. The elopement had occurred just as Elizabeth realized that Fitzwilliam Darcy had gone from being the last man in the world that she would consent to marry to become the only man she had ever loved. Still, she believed that neither he nor any other respectable man would seek an alliance with any of the Bennet daughters. These were depressing times as thoughts of what might have been consumed her during the day and in her sleep. She thought of how she bitterly rejected Darcy’s proposal in Hunsford and knew from what she learnt later that she had badly misjudged him.

Darcy had never stopped loving Elizabeth Bennet but he had his own problems as others had plans that worked to keep him and his friends apart. Though prospects for Elizabeth’s eldest sister Jane and Mr. Bingley improved when he returned to Netherfield, Darcy’s failure to return with him further broke Elizabeth’s heart.

It looked to both of them that they would need something positive to happen for them to meet. Even after they met, too many obstacles needed to be overcome for their relationship to blossom, including overcoming the sinister plans of others who stood in their way. If they were to find a life together, their ability to deal with these problems together would test their mettle and their love.

1.0 out of 5 stars Full of errors 8 April 2014
By jenny
Format:Kindle Edition
Why write a period piece without doing research. In addition we have Elizabeth responding to a job "add" in the paper, visiting Darcey's stately home in the centre of London and seeing the sites not sights. All mistakes in the first chapters. Why submit something if you can't be bothered to get it right.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written. 10 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Weak in style and technique, the story races along at such a great pace the reader is denied any of the finer details of....anything. The book is full of poor sentence construction and appalling grammar...."Jane told of her being sadder than she had ever seen her when she said that when she last saw you in Lambton that she was convinced that she would never see you again" .... WHAT??!!!!
As for spelling mistakes etc etc. One thing is for sure, I won't be reading any more of Marilyn Harper's books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much plot for size 26 Mar 2014
By Grammar Warden 73 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story had some potential, but I found the author's style offputting. Instead of giving the characters' speeches and delving into the actions, the author too often summarised the import of those speeches and plots, rendering it more in the nature of a seventh-grade book report. This story had some good ideas, but could stand a lot of fleshing out. There were also problems with punctuation that got on my nerves but that issue was surprisingly secondary for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars TIME FOR ME TO STOP BUYING P&P ALTERNATIVES 21 April 2014
By Liz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story had some potential, but did not live up to what a good P&P alternative should be. The writer like to dialog Instead of giving the characters' speeches and delving into the actions, the author summarised everything, kind of a cheat sheet. Sounds like a senate hearing. This story had some good ideas, but could stand a lot of proofreading. I have not read a good P&P alternative in a long time. Time to give it up and appreciate the good ones I already have.

3.0 out of 5 stars Had potential but missed the mark... 25 Mar 2014
By Darcy lover!!! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a fast-paced story that could have been better. I love P&P variations and I am presently working on my own but I have yet to publish it because I feel it is not good enough. That is not the case with a lot of these variations I am seeing lately. They are trying to meet the demand of us fanatics and end up missing the mark. There were a lot of editorial issues: quotations in the wrong spot, calling someone a different name, etc...
I did enjoy the read and received it free with my prime so I guess I can't complain too much.

SPOILER ALERT!!!!
My biggest issue with the book is that the central characters, our beloved Darcy and Elizabeth lack the passionate tension that should be natural for two who claim to love each other. They profess the love their have for each other to other people but there is no overt display to each other that would give you any sense that they really felt that way.

Another issue is that they are together a great deal in the book and she is living in his house, she is in on every discussion, gives him advise on his business and estate issues and yet it takes until the end for them to discuss their feelings and move past the pain of Hunsford.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fair 11 April 2014
By Jan Payton - Published on Amazon.com

This is a book that could have been really good "if" it wasn't so abbreviated. The story itself was a good idea. Harper just didn't expand on it. It could have been so much better.
