What if Darcy and Elizabeth first spied one another five years earlier? Darcy returns from his Grand Tour to learn of his father's poor health and immediately sets out for a walk to process the information. He sees Elizabeth and Jane while out. Despite Jane's beauty, he barely notices her. He prefers Elizabeth's smiles and liveliness.
Darcy and Elizabeth both faithfully keep journals. Through their entries, we learn more about their lives. The two see each other in London throughout the years. Each time, they record the encounters.
Darcy fails to pursue Elizabeth because of misplaced familial duty. He never understood his father's last lesson as he should. Elizabeth, as a young woman, is powerless to learn of him.
It takes a while, but Darcy finally approaches Elizabeth. When he does, his intensity is almost overwhelming. This volume follows their courtship.
Through theirs journals we learn how they meet time and again for two years. They only see each other and never come to speak in those years. They mature in this time, Darcy into his role as master and Lizzy into the reality of her life.
Darcy is pressed by his uncle, the Earl of Matlock, to take a wife. He is looking around during the season but he knows that there is only one wife for him, his Lizzy. Because he does not remember a talk with his father about this subject he almost makes the wrong decision. With a little help from his friend Bingley and his cousin Richard he comes to the right conclusion.
Lizzy, in the meantime, has to suffer from both her parents. Her mother is a very ignorant woman and does not love her second daughter, at all. Her father observes his wife's treatment of their second daughter and does nothing to correct the hurt that Lizzy feels due to her mother's behavior. He takes the easy path and lets others do his parental duty. The behavior of her family drives away a suitor and Lizzy's mother let's her take the blame.
When at last Darcy and Lizzy meet again in Hyde Park they are directly devoted to each other. It is not an easy path. Lizzy has to learn to trust their love and her worthiness to be loved.
The people around them are influenced by their behavior. For good and for bad.Read more ›
This is not a retelling of Pride and Prejudice in it's true sense. The circumstances that keep the couple apart are resolved and the bond that Darcy and Elizabeth share is established early, which I like. Don't get me wrong, they do not have an easy time coming together. It is interesting.
This work is divided into three books. I would highly recommend each one as they tell of the different phases in the lives of the Darcys . I don't think anyone will be disappointed.
