WHY I WANTED TO READ THIS NOVEL:
- It’s a Pride and Prejudice variation…only my most favorite type of Austenesque novel!
- A New Author! I’ve never read anything by Diana Oaks before.
- Loved the idea of Elizabeth not hearing Darcy’s slight – was very curious to see how this altered her opinion of and behavior towards the proud gentleman from Derbyshire.
