What if a tragic event involving a beloved sister shatters Elizabeth Bennet's confidence in her ability to accurately judge a person's character? When she leaves Longbourn for Kent, Elizabeth's heart is full of worry for those she left behind. She carries a secret that would ruin her family if exposed and she must deceive the ones closest to her to conceal the truth.

She unexpectedly encounters Mr. Darcy on her journey and his gentlemanly behavior confuses, yet comforts her. Their daily encounters in the woods surrounding Rosings soothes Elizabeth's weathered conscience and she soon falls in love. Her doubts, along with the well-placed words of another, threaten to destroy the peace she finds in Darcy's company and she wonders if she has again failed to correctly sketch his character.

When the truth behind her deception is uncovered, will Darcy shun her as Elizabeth fears, or will his actions prove that he is the very best of men?

I was totally unprepared for the tragedy that befalls Elizabeth's dear sister! Elizabeth is dealing with some things when we meet her again in the beginning of this book! She is playing nursemaid for a certain person and is worried what will happen. She goes with this person to London to her aAunt and Uncle Gardiner's home in Gracechurch Street. There she will travel on with Sir William Lucas and his daughter Maria to visit Charlotte Collins (nee Lucas) She is worried for her sisters and her father and worried that a great secret will become known and ruin them all. While on the road to Kent, to visit Charlotte, their carriage is overturned after a broken wheel. Elizabeth is standing on the road trying to figure out what to do about this situation, and along comes the most unexpected person, who offers his assistance. Mr. Darcy! This story was not short and I was so happy it wasn't! It was long and wonderful and I felt like I was sitting with friends having a wonderfully long chat. Or maybe a weekend visit. Either way, I LOVED this story! Pamela Lynne knows how to write these characters so they stay true to Miss Austen's original ideas and the manner of speaking and interacting with each other. It is "comfortable" if that makes sense. I fell back into their lives as though they are real people and ones I know very well. The twists in the story are well done and completely believable. I really liked Anne De Bourgh in this one!! Elizabeth and Darcy go through quite a bit of trouble trying to stay out of trouble. But misinformation and misinterpretation play a large part in their story here. Don't worry, they get their HEA, eventually! Truly loved this one! I highly recommend this title and this author! Every book I've read by Pamela Lynne has been a joy to read and re-read! *Courtesy Copy*
