Summary

When Elizabeth's father dies unexpectedly, she is surprised to find that the proud, arrogant Mr. Darcy wants to marry her - and even more surprised when her uncle tells her why. But after they are married she begins to see a different side of her husband.
Darcy thinks that Elizabeth has married him for love, but slowly begins to realize that all is not as it appears in their marriage. Will he still love her when the truth is revealed? Will our two favorite characters overcome their misunderstandings and achieve a marriage based on more than duty and obligation?
This is a Pride and Prejudice variation brought to you by the author of Mr. Darcy's Persistent Pursuit, Love's Fool: The Taming of Lydia Bennet, and One False Step.

My Thoughts on Duty Demands

What if, when Mr. Darcy had first proposed, Elizabeth had an overwhelming reason to say yes. What if, instead of that unforgettable confrontation that, for me, changed the course of their relationship and lead to me seeing a different side of Darcy, they had married with all the issues unspoken and unresolved that came to light from that first proposal and refusal and the letter Darcy wrote after? Those what ifs are explored in this fantastic variation of Pride and Prejudice.

For me this book kept true to the spirit of the original and was a very believable twist. Plus I loved the idea of seeing Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy after the I Do's.

The narrator for this book was fantastic. I just loved listening to her bring Elizabeth and all the other characters I loved to life in this story.

I highly recommend this one to Jane Austen fans.

One of The Best Variations of Pride and Prejudice

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

This audiobook was as enjoyable as I could ever had hoped for. I think that Jane Austen herself would have loved this variation that kept the characters as true to the original ones while at the same time giving us a new storyline perfectly compatible with the classic we so love. The interpretation was also superb giving life to all the characters. I like the fact that Darcy shows his true nature of a caring and more approachable character blossoming under the influence of his much loved Elizabeth. I enjoyed this story so much that I think I will listen to it again, and again. You must also. I promise you'll love it.
