Lady Elizabeth is another variation of Pride and Prejudice. The story begins with the abduction of Elizabeth. She is being raised as the granddaughter of the Duke of Dunmore. Already the Duke has arranged Elizabeth to marry one of his peers to ensure his family's allegiance and power.
Fifteen years later, Elizabeth meets Darcy, who is her supposed half-brother, Avery's friend. Both Elizabeth and Darcy hit it off very well with one another except the Duke didn't want Darcy to ruin his plan for Elizabeth.
During Darcy's stay at Netherfield Park in Hertfordshire, he learned of the tragedy that the Bennets has suffered the lost of their second daughter. As Darcy placed the clues together, he became certain that Lady Elizabeth Montlake is Elizabeth Bennet. Even though Darcy knew that the revelation meant losing Elizabeth, he goes forward and informed Elizabeth the truth.
The story doesn't really end with a cliff hanger. Readers/Listeners knows that Elizabeth must continued her journey to learn of her biological family. They will also knows that eventually Elizabeth and Darcy will find each other but the readers/listeners will have to take that journey to find out what will happened to Elizabeth and Darcy for the ending that all of us believe will happened.
The narrator, Pearl Hewitt does a wonderful job of narrating Lady Elizabeth. She has the right tone for Elizabeth and Darcy.
I was given this audiobook by the narrator via Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated or influenced in any way for writing this review.

Series Info: Book #1 of 2 in a completed series
Like a movie adaptation of a book, certain scenes were kept but moved to a new place & time and certain speeches were given to a different character. It allowed for the story to be totally different and yet still rooted in the original.
There was brief swearing by a female character, which I found very jarring due to the time period. And high born people back then did not insist on marrying for love. Overall, it didn’t feel true to it’s time.
However, I did really like the relationship that developed between Darcy & Elizabeth. I actually would have preferred for the book to be longer, so we could have had more of their interactions before all the secrets came out.
It ended at a logical point, but you will definitely have to read the sequel in order to get the whole story.
Narration: Was a bit jarring at first, but I got used to it. / I didn’t love her “voices,” especially the one for the 4 year old Lizzie (but that one was only used briefly)
