I recently had the opportunity to review a new Jane Austen fan fiction novel for the Austenprose blog. The novel was A Wife for Mr. Darcy by Mary Lydon Simonsen. The novel is a “what-if” variation of Pride and Prejudice.
The variation asks the question: what if, after Darcy’s realizes Elizabeth overheard the dreadful comments he made about her at the Meryton assembly, he goes to apologize rather than ignore that it ever happened. After apologizing, Darcy begins to see the playful witty side of Elizabeth that he missed before and begins falling for her. But when duty and honor come in the way he must decide what is more important: following his heart, or following his aristocratic roots.
