More About the Author

Abigail Reynolds isn't good at following straight lines. Originally from upstate New York, she studied Russian and theater at Bryn Mawr College and marine biology at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole. After a stint in performing arts administration, she decided to attend medical school, and took up writing as a hobby during her years as a physician in private practice.

A life-long lover of Jane Austen's novels, Abigail began writing variations on Pride & Prejudice in 2001, then expanded her repertoire to include a series of novels set on her beloved Cape Cod. Her most recent releases are Mr. Darcy's Noble Connections, Mr. Darcy's Refuge, A Pemberley Medley, and Morning Light, and she is currently working on a new Pemberley Variation and the next novel in her Cape Cod series. A lifetime member of JASNA and a founder of the popular Austen Authors group blog, she lives on Cape Cod with her husband, her son and a menagerie of animals. Her hobbies do not include sleeping or cleaning her house.

Format: Paperback
This is a lovely, lovely story, and an interesting what-if for those who are fans of P&P. What if the smallest change happened when Darcy came to Lambton Inn? The combination of engaging characterizations, humor and sweetness, without being cloying makes for a most enjoyable read. And, it is appropriate for all ages and sensibilities. There is no explicit sex, but there is plenty of romance.

It is a satisfying romance, even if you're not a fan of Pride and Prejudice. A great choice for lazy afternoon read.

Very disappointed.I thought that this was a new Abigail Reynolds but except for the first paragraph this book is From Lambton to Longbourne with a different title

Format: Paperback
Very good story and definitely good read Abigail Reynolds really concentrates on how Elizabeth & Darcy continually misinterpreted every conversation between each other until they meet a lasting understanding of one and other. Very Racy at times ! My only negative thing is to say far to short ! Left me wanting more much more and Abigail Reynolds found it necessary to change the original double wedding although not sure why as it did not add anything to the story.

I'd always wanted Darcy to give some assurance to Elizabeth before leaving the inn that fateful day in Lambton and so this variation sounded very interesting to me. The opening scene when Darcy makes clear his feelings and is assuring Elizabeth that he does not wish to severe the acquaintance between them because of Lydia's recent behaviour. Darcy certainly has a very successful way of comforting and assuring Elizabeth!

The development of certain well-known characters such as Bingley and Georgiana are great to see in this variation. I particularly love Georgiana - she begins to grow in confidence, and she builds a wonderful relationship with Elizabeth and is a very useful source of information for Elizabeth in finding out more about her brother. One of my favourite aspects between these two is their correspondence; it allows them to become closer and there are many fun (and important) revelations in these letters, as well as few lessons in the art of teasing! Georgiana also builds up a fun relationship with both Mary and Kitty (which is to be expected given their similarity in age).

The Gardiners also are brilliant and very... useful in this story. They are very sweet towards both Elizabeth and Darcy (Mr Gardiner towards Mr Darcy in particular) and are helpful in dropping the odd hint or conveniently letting slip a piece of information (or concealing certain knowledge!) in the hopes it will help promote the growing relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth. Mr Bennet was another interesting character and he and Mr Darcy have a very amusing relationship.

Now to the main two character of the story; Elizabeth and Darcy both go through a rollercoaster of emotions. The extent of the love they feel for one and another causes them both pain.

This variation picks up Pride and Prejudice at the point of Darcy going to the inn at Lambton. Lizzy has just read the bad news about Lydia's elopement and the variation here is that Darcy doesn't leave the inn, but instead stays to comfort Lizzy. In fact, he does a remarkable job of distracting her from her woes so that when the Gardiners return they find Lizzy and Darcy in an embrace! She is unwilling to enter into an engagement straight away, as they don't know each other well and she is aware how badly she misjudged him so doesn't want to rush things. Lizzy returns to the south and begins to realise how much she actually cares for Mr Darcy and once she throws some encouragement his way their relationship moves on.

While I enjoyed this story it isn't my favourite of Abigail Reynolds, not enough happens in the story for me, I felt it could have done with some more tension. This story focused very much on the emotional relationship between the couple; the insecurities and passion they engender in the other provides much of the meat of the story. There is a LOT of kissing, but those of you who prefer your books to stay out of the bedroom will be be pleased because there are no sex scenes and no pre-marital sex.

This is the first of Ms Reynolds books that I've read/listened too, having read parts on Kindle and listened to others on Audible as I sometimes commute by public transport and sometimes drive. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Some of the reviewers don't like the non-Regency descriptions of romance/love/sex scenes in Ms Reynolds books, but these variations are by a modern author telling the story for a modern audience so I don't have a problem with it. Of course the original is rightly regarded as a classic and will remain so forever but from the Austen variations I've read/listened to so far, this has to be one of my favourites and I will be seeking out more of Ms Reynolds work in the very near future.

Anyone who loves the story of Elizabeth Bennet and her Fitzwilliam Darcy should give this a try. We still get the same Happy Ever After but how they get there is somewhat different and very interesting. Well done, Abigail!
