It was interesting to see the story take place this way. Elizabeth certainly got to see Darcy's haughtiness and even heard the infamous "tolerable" remark, but without all that other baggage she flung at him in the original Hunsford proposal, she stood a better chance of liking him and forgiving him for the slight. Sure enough, she does fall in love with him. Darcy also has less objections going into this because he hasn't met the Bennets so all he has is the connections and lack of wealth objection. Even so, these two proved irresistible and fall in love.
Lydia's elopement does come up here, but in Kent, not Lambton. I liked how Darcy immediately offers to take Lizzy back to London before doing what we know he will do to save Lydia from Wickham (and herself).
Another thing I liked was that one brief moment where Anne was unlike most of her characterizations. She was a mini Lady Catherine in spouting off to Darcy why he needs to marry her and not the "country chit." That sure was refreshing. Just wish there was more.
Now, some may believe the story felt rushed and in some way I agree. However, sometimes I prefer a bit of straight to the point stories. I don't need the entire original story to be rehashed so I was ok with that.
Overall the story was enjoyable. But the 4 stars was given because it was just that: enjoyable. It wasn't amazing but good enough.
