Due to the size and limitations of this work, things happened and happened quickly. Some readers do not like minimalistic writing, but then sometimes… you don’t want to dwell on circumstances too long. When the story went way off canon, it never returned. The OOC [out of character] behavior will drive some readers crazy and the evolution of the story will seem rushed.
We open at Hunsford the day after Darcy’s disastrous proposal with Darcy hand delivering his letter of explanation to Elizabeth. He then turned and walked toward Rosings, lamenting that he would never see her again. He was met in the lane by a footman running to fetch him. Something had happened at Rosings. Our story turned on a dime at this point, and I have to say that I really liked the change in Lady Catherine. Although she had a terrible shock, her reasoning was touching and nearly made me cry.
Mr. Bennet and his favorite daughter: “I thought about you all the time. I used to pray that you’d live to be a hundred years old. I didn’t know. I didn’t know that you were ashamed of me.” –Khaled Hosseini
There was a scene between our dear girl and her father that will grip your heart. Views were expressed that we have never heard spoken from Elizabeth. Mr. Bennet was given a set-down from his favorite daughter that he never expected to hear in his lifetime. I felt for both of them.
Mrs. Bennet was… and will always be… Mrs. Bennet: “Of course mothers and daughters with strong personalities might see the world from very different points of view.” –Katherine Howe, The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane
I was glad to see that McMann didn’t harp on the ‘least favorite daughter’ trope to the extent that I wanted to slit my own throat. Elizabeth, although embarrassed by her mother’s actions, still loved her. Mrs. Bennet only wanted her daughters, even Elizabeth, to have an advantageous marriage. Although she wasn’t sensible in her declarations on their marriage prospects, she still cared for her girls.
I loved the influence Lady Catherine had on Mary, Kitty and Lydia. Leave it to Lady Catherine to wield the appropriate weapon that garnered the cooperation of the girls and brought them in line. Well done. Lady Catherine. [On a personal note: when I was young and courting, my aunt informed me that she knew nearly everyone in town and I needed to behave. There would be a thousand pair of eyes on me and they would report back to her if I misbehaved. Yep, scared me straight]. Lydia and Kitty never knew who was watching their behavior or how Lady Catherine always seemed to know what they were doing.
I wanted a bit more between ODC and found myself a bit disappointed in the romance department. We had to wait until the very last for those magic words. Dang… oh, that wasn’t the magic word. That was my frustration. This was a free offering through Amazon.
It was quite the alteration. I enjoyed this interesting Lady C, watching Darcy grow and change, and what money would do to the Bennet family.
Now, while I was fascinated by this great amount of variation going on, I also felt like the story skimmed the surface. It summarized and stayed in the passive voice a great deal rather than letting the characters act and speak in the moment.
So, I liked it and appreciated it, but moderately so. I would recommend it for the curious changes to other Austenesque fans.
After delivering the letter to Elizabeth, Darcy is met with the news of Anne de Bourge death.
Lady Cathrine has her own way of twisting events to suit her purpose and decides that Darcy should marry Elizabeth. Bribing Darcy and Elizabeth seems to be the way to accomplish her wish.
A funny, sweet and romantic read I recommend.

Ce que j'aime : la manière dont le personnage de Lady Catherine évolue et la façon dont Darcy apprend à apprécier les Bennet
Ce que j'aime moins : le revirement de Lady C est tout de même brutal
En bref : Un petit "what if" sympathique qui offre une nouvelle vision des personnages
