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.
The author showed the characters as they actually were and you could picture things as they really did happen. I also did appreciate that Mr. Rowland wrote near the end of the novel what transpired with the rest of Elizabeth's sisters and a few of the others mentioned in the novel.
I liked the idea that there weren't many proposals and disappointments on Darcy's side and he got what he wanted without much heartbreak.
Looking forward to many more novels from Mr. Rowland.
