unforeseen events can lead to the most unexpected consequences.
During a visit with her friend Charlotte Collins at Hunsford, Elizabeth falls prey to illness for almost the first time in her life just as Mr. Darcy comes to call. Befuddled by her illness, she misinterprets his proposal of marriage, and a simple nod of acknowledgment is mistaken for acceptance of his suit by a joyous Darcy.
By the time Elizabeth regains her health, it seems that every one of her acquaintance - and many outside of it - accept that she is engaged to the last man in the world she would ever consider. Elizabeth knows that her life will be forever changed, and the consequences will spread further than she imagines.

The author has done a spectacular job of writing this tale with favorite characters from Pride and Prejudice, as well as introducing a few more for the readers' enjoyment. The storyline is altered from Jane Austen's original, sometimes subtly and at others a decisive leave. This was not an uncomfortable retelling and often presents a better turn of events for the familiar characters, including Wickham and Caroline Bingley. I particularly enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of each chapter....like frosting on a well-baked cake.
