Book Description

A Pride and Prejudice "What If?" Story

This retelling of Pride and Prejudice asks “what if” events prevented Fitzwilliam Darcy from proposing to Elizabeth Bennet that day at Hunsford parsonage? Darcy arrives with marriage on his mind, only to find that Elizabeth has just received news her father is critically ill and probably dying. In the process of offering his help to her in traveling home, he discovers what she really thinks of him—and it’s not good. Should Darcy deliver Elizabeth home to be with her family and then disappear from her life, or will he propose another kind of help? Will Elizabeth be willing to sacrifice her future happiness to save her family from financial ruin? Or, do she and Darcy, two very stubborn people, have a chance of finding happiness together?

About the Author

Ms. Mason-Milks says, “Writing stories inspired by Austen’s books offers a way to spend more time with characters I’ve grown to love. Just because the book ends, it doesn’t have to be the end of the story.” In addition to writing, her other loves include singing in "a cappella joy" (a women's barbershop chorus), reading, and yoga. She currently lives in Seattle with her husband and their three cats. In addition to her blog at http://www.austen-whatif-stories.com, she is also part of a group blog called austenauthors.net.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This work is simply not all that readable and is painfully slow in being delivered. There are far too many common parlance Americanisms which in some instances would not have been known or encountered in regular English Society, Manners and Language Usage at a time when some Americans were considered somewhat Gauche by the English Upper Classes. Where Ms. Mason-Milks thanks her lady friends, her brother in Australia, and her husband early in her work for their assistance she might do best to enquire of both these men to tell her candidly and in straight talk how a newly married heterosexual man can withstand more than six months of no sex within the framework of his so-called marriage. The answers ought to be illuminating for this lady author and might well provide her with the plot of a rather racy novel that may well outstrip this lacklustre effort in sales fairly fast. She may well learn quite another literal meaning for the phrase she so often employs of her 'Elizabeth' becoming "The Mistress of Pemberley". With luck it may well pink up her cheeks quite a bit if both of these men can supply her with some reality and truth of what a heterosexual men then and now would do in such a situation especially one who has had to lay out money to provide for and support her mother and four sisters so early in the endeavour.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok 30 Jan. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well this is not bad at all. It's a 'what if' story, the what if being that Darcy doesn't get to propose when Elizabeth is staying with Charlotte as when he goes to the parsonage she has just received a letter saying that her father is very ill. In her upset state, she lets Darcy know what she thinks of him. He decides to offer her a marriage of convenience, hoping that she will accept him for the sake of her family and fall in love with him after they are married. So it's pretty awkward going for them, as they really don't know each other well, and they misunderstand each other quite a bit. It's quite an entertaining story, although I felt that Elizabeth had more gumption than the Elizabeth in this novel and it's quite soppy towards the end.

One thing I really liked was that some of the major points of P&P such as Lady Catherine giving Elizabeth a piece of her mind were kept. It loses one star for the Americanisms, pretty much all the spelling is American English, 'plow', 'inquire', 'parlor' and there were some turns of phrase which I felt were out of place such as 'I guess' which doesn't read as naturally as 'I suppose' would for a British reader and the worst of them all, 'fall' which jars every one of the dozen or so times that I read it in the text.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 21 Jun. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this pride and prejudice variation and it is a much stronger and enjoyable read than other p and p continuations. The only bug bear would be that the ending felt rushed and it seemed to take till the last couple of chapters for Elizabeth and Mr Darcy to reach an accord

4.0 out of 5 stars It goes on a bit - well, a lot 29 Mar. 2013
By AquaViola TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mr Darcy finds out from Miss Elizabeth Bennett that her father is seriously unwell. Instead of giving his proposal, he takes her home, and eventually gives her a Marriage of Convenience proposal, which she considers and accepts. This book shows Elizabeth in a marriage without her love, but eventually falls for her, just when she loses his trust.

It is a tale of misunderstandings, and takes a long time for it to reach its eventual, and predictable, conclusion, and I found myself getting bored towards the end. Also, Mr Darcy's restraint after marrying goes to a ridiculous extent, and had he behaved as normally newly-married men do, a lot of the problems in this book would, I feel, have been avoided.

So read the preview, which is probably the best part of the book, and if you are interested in seeing how it resolves, go buy it. It's not brilliant, but it's not bad.
