While visiting Charlotte Collins at Hunsford Parsonage, Elizabeth Bennet has been invited to tea at Rosings Park with Miss Anne de Bourgh. Not only has the young heiress singled out Elizabeth for friendship, she also desires her assistance in securing a marriage proposal from her cousin, Fitzwilliam Darcy. Anne, aware of Darcy's `infatuation' with Lizzy, uses that knowledge to her advantage or so she thinks, in attempting to gain Lizzy's help. Anne believes that Darcy will never act on his feelings for Elizabeth due to his family obligations. Elizabeth agrees to help Anne since she dislikes the man so much herself. During the visit with Anne, Lizzy is told in confidence, some unexpected information regarding George Wickham. She also learns interesting facts about Mr. Darcy, things Anne relayed from letters Georgiana wrote to her. These new morsels of information leave Elizabeth puzzled and questioning. What are these thoughts that keep pushing through her barrier? As she learns more about Mr. Darcy she begins to wonder if maybe, just maybe she was a bit hasty in her judgment. Then comes the disastrous proposal and she is furious again. As time and circumstances slowly erode Lizzy's negative feelings for Mr. Darcy, her loyalty to Anne remains steadfast. As Lizzy's love grows, the path to happiness for the couple is rocky and seems futile to Lizzy. Darcy is relentless in his efforts to change her mind and this makes for many enjoyable scenes in this novel. What will it take for Lizzy to decide to follow her heart or will she give up on love because of a friendship? This book is a quick read and one you will not want to miss. It is well written and entertaining. P. O. Dixon has done it again. 4 out of 5 stars This book contains no explicit sex scenes
