This book picks up the saga of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy following the disastrous proposal at Rosings. Mr. Darcy is injured in an accident and Georgiana, beliving they are engaged, asks Elizabeth to come to Pemberly hoping her voice will rouse him from the coma. There is no wet shirt swimming scene here but she does have to wipe his chest with cool cloths to bring the fever down........Wow! A lost handerkerchief with Elizbaths scent is an important incident and Georgiana is shown to be a clever and intelligent young lady. I thoroughly enjoyed this 'take off' on P&P and also enjoyed the companion book "Assumed Obligation". It is such a joy to follow their lives after they realize they are meant to be together.

The author has a wonderful command of the English language, and the beginning of the book is stellar when Lizzie travels to Pemberly with Jane. However, the shy character of Georgiana at the beginning and end of the book does not relate to the social butterfly of the center of the book, who flits from worker's house to worker's with Darcy to make him a better man. I was disappointed in the lack of substance in the relationship between Elizabeth and Darcy, although the sentimental aspect of Darcy was sweet. I basically felt that this book would have been better as a short story, as the beginning was some of the best alternate P&P reality I've ever read. The book is actually longer than it appears, as it is small print on large pages, so the 180 printed pages is more equal to reading 360 pages.

I enjoyed the beginning and the end of this book. The middle was too long and drawn out. The book did not work well on my nook. It kept freezing and I would have to reset the nook over and over again. This was very frustrating. It also happened with two other of this authors books. I don't think I can buy anymore of her books, way too frustrating.
