A Pride and Prejudice "What If?" Story

This retelling of Pride and Prejudice asks “what if” events prevented Fitzwilliam Darcy from proposing to Elizabeth Bennet that day at Hunsford parsonage? Darcy arrives with marriage on his mind, only to find that Elizabeth has just received news her father is critically ill and probably dying. In the process of offering his help to her in traveling home, he discovers what she really thinks of him—and it’s not good. Should Darcy deliver Elizabeth home to be with her family and then disappear from her life, or will he propose another kind of help? Will Elizabeth be willing to sacrifice her future happiness to save her family from financial ruin? Or, do she and Darcy, two very stubborn people, have a chance of finding happiness together?

Mr. Darcy's Proposal

Promising beginning but...
May 17th, 2015
The first part - and overall premise - of this story intrigued me. But as I got to the middle third, I found myself wondering if I was reading about the mistress of Pemberley or Manderley. That's my way of saying that the middle part of this book seems to fade into a crazy variation of "Rebecca", with Elizabeth vexing herself over whether or not she is being treated respectfully... while not being very respectful herself. I felt sorry for Darcy in some of the "angst for the sake of angst" setups. The character of Elizabeth becomes unrecognizable in some of them. I don't regret reading this, but I also don't see myself reading it again.
