Darcy slid off his horse, sick from Typhoid when it was raining. Lizzy found him and called for help from her father who has him taken to Longbourn where the doctor orders him to stay. Elizabeth was his nurse at first as she had once had typhoid unlike her sisters. Later Bingley was looking for his friend, and thus they learned of Mr. Darcy's identify and Jane and Bingley were attracted to one another. This Mr. Darcy is appreciative to his host and tolerant of the shortcomings of some of them.
The family has to deal with Mr. Darcy's visitors, some welcome like Mr. Bingley, Col. Fitzwilliam, and Darcy's valet. Others were a trial like Mr. Collins who was super stupid, meddling, and offensive. Another was Lady Catherine and heir daughter. They stress the limited resources and patience of those at Longbourn. Mrs. Bennet is not quite as dumb as in canon, but she is still herself. Mr. Bennet is more attentive of threats to his daughters, but still too prone to allow certain things for his amusement like disrupting his home to permit Lady Catherine to stay until she finally becomes too much for him. Mr. Wickham disposes of himself to not be much of a factor in this book. Caroline has to keep away from Longbourn to avoid exposure to. Typhoid.
Anyway, I highly recommend this book as a truly outstanding example of a book where Lizzy and Darcy are attracted to one another early, but the challenges arise from other factors, especially Lady Catherine. There's a lot of cause for laughter, but you also want to kick Lady Catherine out of Longbourn long before she is forced out when she committed one rude and threatening act too many. This Mr. Collins is truly obnoxious and Mrs. Bennet does not take to him as in cannon. Charlotte does not get a chance to be in his company. He is an annoying presence while Lady Catherine is even worse, if that is possible, and poor Elizabeth has the most to be annoyed about. Why would Mr. Bennet even let those disagreeable folks stay. At least, he made his position clear where Mr. Collins was concerned. Thank you for such a wonderful book.
Elizabeth found a horse standing by and guarding its owner that had fallen out of the saddle. Once they established him at Longbourn, the apothecary determined he could not be moved. Bingley came to visit and to claim Mr. Darcy as his missing friend and thus, began the recovery of Mr. Darcy at Longbourn. Our dear Colonel Fitzwilliam soon arrived after Bingley’s letter.
I loved the interaction between Elizabeth and Darcy as he regained consciousness. That first moment when he opened his eyes, as he recovered from his fever. Oh, man, be still my heart. I loved the wit of Mr. Bennet. I even liked this Mrs. Bennet a bit. It was like the author really had fun creating situations for our characters to endure. The touching moments were a delight. There was even a touching moment between Mr. and Mrs. Bennet that was so endearing.

Mr. Collins arrived, silly man even after Mr. Bennet told him to not come. He then sent an express to Lady Catherine and she stormed Longbourn with Anne in tow demanding to take Darcy to Rosings.
This was a comedy of errors that was a mess from one end to another. Lady Catherine was outrageous [keep an eye out for her cane]. Our dear Colonel tried to run interference between her and the Bennet household. Mr. Collins tried to secure the hand of one of his cousins; however, instead he insulted her and infuriated his host. Miss Bingley tried to move Darcy to Netherfield [so she could secure him], but soon realized that she couldn’t get near him, as long as he was a Longbourn.
This was a delightful read and one to read again. It was so much fun. Yeah, there were crazy parts and several OMG moments; however, I loved it. I can’t even mention parts of it without giving something away.
I would have wished for a bit more spark between Darcy and Elizabeth, but the poor guy was sick so i guess he couldn't marshall the energy.
