Pleasant read 3.5-4 stars
This book has a delightful premise: Darcy loses his memory and is charmed all over again by Elizabeth Bennet. I have read at least two other books in which Elizabeth loses her memory: once before they are married and once after marriage and several children. But for it to happen to Darcy was a new idea.
Darcy does not just lose some of his memory; he can't even remember his own name. So he faces the prospect of learning how to manage Pemberley and the servants, who his relatives are and who he can and can't trust. And he does know he must offer for the lady who is his savior.
This all happens when Elizabeth and the Gardiners are in Lambton while on their tour and Darcy has left his party to return to Pemberley one day ahead of schedule. Darcy is hit in the head by a falling branch during a violent rain storm and Elizabeth is caught in the same woods as she has gone off on one of her strolls. He is unconscious when she, in looking for shelter, finds him on the ground & at the mercy of the elements. She struggles to drag him into the nearby cottage and has to not just spend the night there, alone with him but also to tend to his wet clothing, start a fire and provide some care to his head wound.
Well, you know what happens next; yes, she is compromised but he has no recollection of that time in Kent when he proposed and she so staunchly rejected him. The couple make it to his estate and the doctor is called. Elizabeth becomes ill due to being exposed to the weather and develops her own dire symtoms.
The story has quite a few of our old comrades gathered at Pemberley: Bingley, M/M Hurst, Caroline arrive, Aunt & Uncle Gardiner are informed of Elizabeth's condition so arrive and are invited to stay and Mr. Bennet & Jane come as a letter has arrived at Longbourn informing them of Elizabeth's condition and why she is at Pemberley. Later we have someone writing to Lady Catherine so she shows up with Anne and Mr. Collins. Then the Colonel is summoned when it seems that Darcy's memory is taking rather a long time to come back. The Colonel is to remind him of their history together.
Darcy seems to have found his sense of humor as well as his smile and dimples with this accident. And as he first sits by her bedside and then keeps her company as she recovers, Elizabeth's change of opinion formed when she read that letter back at Hunsford begins to become something so much more. The course of love is not without some bumps so we have a bit of angst.
I found this a lovely and delightful story. Much of it reflects canon. Loved the erasing of bad memories and how various people responded to this new Darcy.

Mostly canon tale. Some editing needed.
