About the Author

Kara Louise grew up in the San Fernando Valley and moved to the midwest in 1991, where she enjoys the relaxed pace of the country. She began writing about 9 years ago, first with a story inspired by her genealogical research. But that took a back seat when she discovered the writings of Jane Austen. She has written 6 novels based on Pride and Prejudice, answering the "what happened next" and the "what ifs" in Elizabeth's and Darcy's story. She lives with her husband outside Wichita, Kansas.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does Elizabeth know her place? 22 Nov 2011
Liked the premise for this adaptation, whereby Mr Bennett has passed away and his family are turned out of Longbourne by Mr Collins. Elizabeth becomes a governess in London to a family acquainted with Mr Bingley and Mr Darcy and so is thrown into their company again, but at a very different social level. What will Darcy do?

I found the plot to be interesting and original, but the Americanisms, for an English reader, were doing my head in. Not sure if I should get over it - the book is written and edited in the States after all - but there are also various errors in detail that were annoying and detracting too. American writers, if you want someone to look over your manuscripts, I volunteer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It 12 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this retelling of Pride and Prejudice. I couldn't put this one down and had to read to the very end in one go just to find out how the author was going to bring them back together.

It was very well written and could well imagine this happening if Mr Bennet had died. Mr Darcy is surprising Elizabeth all the way through the book with his demeanour and shows a different side of him to her. But she knows her place is further down the social divide and she could never expect him to want her still. But Mr Darcy would never let anything get in his way especially when Elizabeth is concerned and soon finds a way to bring her back into his life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely read 6 Oct 2011
By gykinga
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a big fan of what if stories of P&P. I truly enjoyed this novel. The governess idea introduces some interesting considerations. I have read other books from this author, they are all worth the time. This story was so lovely. It was well written, the characters very credible. I loved how Darcy managed to have Elizabeth at Pemberley. I wholeheartedly recommend this story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely read! 8 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Well what can I say, many Jane Austen fan fiction books have republished their work under different titles, it may be slightly annoying but if you read the synopsis you can generally determine whether you have already read it.
I really enjoyed the book, it is a great what if. Written with thought to the period and the not too x-rated. With many of these fan fiction books there are some Americanised words, although not as many as others.
Darcy is portrayed as a caring intelligent character (not too overly emotional and broody) and Lizzy is a little too angelic, I missed some of her feistiness. I liked the fact that they didn't just work it out in the first couple of chapters, there was suspense and longing which makes it more pride and prejudice like.
An enjoyable book, I had to read it more than once :0)

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely written, some funny moments 15 Jun 2014
By Jackie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's a great story in which Elizabeth becomes a governess but the aunt of her charge fancies none other than a certain tall gentleman from Derbyshire.
Very nicely written and loads of excitement. For once Elizabeth falls for Mr Darcy quite soon but she doesn't lose her spirit or sparkle either.
Definitely worth a read and I look forward to more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read! 9 Jan 2014
By Jenny
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once I started this book I was unable to put it down! A really enjoyable read!

In this book we meet the Bennet family after the death of Mr Bennet and the family have divided in their move from Longbourne. Elizabeth is working as a governess and therefore even more unsuitable as a match for Mr Darcy.

In the main parts of the story we meet a variety of new characters and the book is written in a such a way that all provoke a strong reaction. Of course we meet some of the original characters who behave very much in keeping with the way Jane Austen created them.

Unlike many other Pride and Prejudice variations, this book does not have sexual content which kept the characters behaviour more in accordance with the spirit of the times. The book is written so that we are in no doubt of the passion between Darcy and Elizabeth but without much of the story given to numerous sexual scenes.

I recommended this book to those who enjoy Pride and Prejudice variations, and if you have never read one before this would be a good book on which to start.
