What If Mr. Darcy Was Forced to Hide From Society?

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Source: Review Copy from Author

It is 1814 (many events from Pride and Prejudice never took place) and for several years Mr. Darcy has lived in seclusion, away from his family and home and desperately hoping no one recognizes him as Mr. Darcy of Pemberley…

In an effort to dispel his loneliness and at the same time help out a friend very much in need, Mr. Darcy agrees to travel to Hertfordshire and assist Mr. Bingley, who is leasing an estate for the very first time. Since the scandal was years ago and Meryton is a small village, Mr. Darcy feels it might be not so dangerous for him to rejoin society in this setting. Especially as he plans to be known as the insignificant Mr. John Darcy, Mr. Bingley’s impoverished friend. But it turns out people are still curious about Mr. Darcy, even without knowing he has an estate in Derbyshire and is worth ten thousand a year. His evasive replies and lack of details pertaining to his past, his family, and where he lives invite intrigue and speculation. And who is the most intrigued by the mysterious Mr. Darcy? Why the young lady he insulted, of course…Elizabeth Bennet! Continue reading »
