From the Author
I think the reason I loved writing this story so much through the three different versions the trilogy went through (in one, I married Elizabeth to Mr. Collins, honestly, and there's a reason that version will never be finished, lol), was that in this version, Darcy and Elizabeth were not victims. Yes, many things conspire around them to make life miserable, but at the end of the day, both characters stand up and work towards their own destiny.
And that's what we all have to do. The holiday season is especially good at making the adverse situations that much more painful. But picking ourselves up and moving forward is our courage. It is our bravery. It is our strength.
Here's to a wonderful New Year to all of my readers and fans. Your emails and notes this week have been such a blessing. May we all enjoy less adversity and more love and friendship in 2015. :)
