Oh my goodness! I don't what to say. I love Jane Austen and have grieved, somewhat, over the years at the unsatisfying "getting togethers" in her stories. Angst I understand, but while she is our master, you are her equal! She provided the characters but you have given to them what my heart desired, even though I did not fully know it! I feel very blessed to have been looking on fanfiction and seen Pride and Prejudice, a favorite but never having read any fanfiction thinking that there could not possibly be anything worthy. I am glad to be wrong. You have fleshed out the characters perfectly, perhaps better in our modern sensibilities, and satisfied a rather prudish woman who romances the idea of the graces of a world that a poor country mom in America in which, in Austen's day and place, would probably have been a scullery maid. Nevertheless, even they would have enjoyed the talk about their mistress and master and wished them joy as I do. I give you thanks for all the effort you have made to create a masterpiece of your own for no more than a pat on the head. Such people as you are beyond generous. Thanks. Becky Johnson, Ohio
Hello chapter 11 . 10/15
I know this story was written ages ago, but it is such a beautiful one! Oh, my heart. I was beginning to think I could not stand the angst a moment longer. I loved reading the entire story, although I am sure I would have threatened murder if you had left it unfinished. What a beautiful ending you wrote! It makes me want to run through the rain and find my love, whilst wearing a green dress (although I do not think I would be able to NOT open his letter — I’m too morbidly curious for that :)). Thankyou so much for writing this, I much enjoyed the reading of it. Cheers, xx.

Absolutely beautiful story! I've read it a few times and always enjoy Lizzy quoting her Latin studies! Makes the story quite a bit more fun to read!

This is a very old story, and I absolutely love it. But for the life of me, I cannot make the connection between Elizabeth indirectly scaring Mr Darcy off his horse and rejecting his suit over and over again. She doesn't open his letter, she doesn't talk to him or put him off, and she runs away from him every single time. She thus proves canon Mr Bennet correct when he includes her as one of the silliest girls in England!

Bravo, une histoire captivante et superbement écrite, merci pour ce délicieux partage qui m'a tenu en haleine tout le long.

Elizabeth has no choice but to accept Darcy as dance partner, else she would not be allowed to dance any the entire evening. It hasn't got anything to do with being stupid

Maravillosa historia! Me encantó.

I've read this story several years ago but never forgot how wonderfully it was told. I've read it a couple of times since. I would put it up with my some of my favorite Kindle P&P variations. Thank you.

Thank you so much! I loved your story. I've read it three times. I hope you can continue enjoying writing, and even more, that life treats you and yours kindly.

I love your writing style and descriptors. It is in keeping with the novel’s era. I know it is within your purview as an author to take creative liberties with the characters, but I struggled with an insecure version of Elizabeth. Darcy really does end up being her savior, particularly after the events with Wickham, and she believed herself unworthy of his affections.

I know it has been a decade but I do hope you write more or have managed to make a career of it. There is talent here.
