Présentation de l'éditeur

Trapped for three days by a flood, and trapped forever by society because of it….

The river isn't the only thing overflowing in Hunsford when a natural disaster forces Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy to work together. The residents of flood-stricken Hunsford, seeking refuge in the parsonage atop the hill, are unaware they are interrupting Darcy's disastrous proposal. Even worse, the flood has washed out the only bride to Rosings Park, stranding Darcy with the woman who has just refused his offer of marriage. But it may already be too late to redeem Elizabeth’s reputation….

Biographie de l'auteur

Abigail Reynolds is a lifelong Jane Austen enthusiast and a physician. Originally from upstate New York, she studied Russian, theater, and marine biology before deciding to attend medical school. She began writing variations on Pride and Prejudice in 2001 to spend more time with her favorite Jane Austen characters. Encouragement from fellow Austen fans persuaded her to continue asking “What if...?”, which led to seven novels in The Pemberley Variations series. She has also written two contemporary novels set on Cape Cod, The Man Who Loved Pride and Prejudice and Morning Light. In 2012 she retired from medical practice to focus exclusively on writing. She is currently at work on a new Pemberley Variation as well as the next novel in her Cape Cod series. She lives in Wisconsin with her husband, two teenage children, and a menagerie of pets. Her hobby is trying to find time to sleep.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Why two stars? 19 mars 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Have read a few of the author's P & P spin-offs and generally enjoyed them. This one was disappointing, it seemed to be written in a rush, the quality of writing did not seem to be as good as the previous ones. (Darcy's Letter, Darcy's Noble Connections, etc) OK, it's just supposed to be an amusing quick read, but I always feel a certain "quality of writing" should be maintained. That said, shall probably try another of her books and hope to be entertained.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable, interesting...and finally, a new variation that's well-written 24 août 2012
Par Candace - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is well-written and well worth the read, a stark contrast to the host of novels by self-published authors who must have fallen asleep during their elementary school grammar lessons. Darcy leaves during bad weather to propose, he doesn't realize that she's refused him and assumes she said yes, they have a fight when they discover the mistake, she rails against his behavior to Wickham, the bridge washes away and he can't get back, they're trapped together for days (and, in the eyes of society, are compromised), etc. Because the plot unfolds as it does, there is no letter in which Darcy explains himself (he does so in person, in a rather touching scene), and Elizabeth is almost forced to watch him act responsibly, compassionately, and even bravely, ultimately coming to appreciate his inner struggles and the depth of his feelings. You really do feel how much Darcy cares for her and, once she accepts the engagement and recognizes her emotions, how unfair it is that they're forced to delay their marriage as they are. There's an undercurrent to Darcy's relationship with the Colonel. Mr. Bennett is unyielding and unapproachable. Jane is a bit stronger than often portrayed, while Bingley is not as amiable. The Gardiners are absolutely wonderful.

Though there are passages pulled from P&P, Reynolds doesn't just drop them into her story as authors often do, as if they feel compelled to pay homage to Austen's language without fully understanding how to weave them into their own works. This book doesn't just talk about what the characters are and feel (as some modern versions do)--it demonstrates all that--so the characters have more depth and earned more of my sympathy.

I do wish, though, that there was a little more to the ending...a few paragraphs mentioning the family they have. We all know that Darcy and Elizabeth will go on to have a wonderful life with wonderful children and do wonderful things, but I would have liked Reynolds to say that a little more than she did. Still, the conclusion wasn't really abrupt and clearly didn't prevent me from giving five stars. Certainly in comparison to some other modern P&Ps, this one deserves the ranking.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A delightful and delicious romance from Ms. Reynolds 24 août 2012
Par Lieder Madchen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This latest Pemberly Variation was simply delightful, rife with humor and drama. I alternated between laughing, sighing and tearing my hair out in exasperation.Poor Darcy and Elizabeth are trapped at the Hunsford parsonage when the river overflows after being interrupted in the midst of Darcy's dreadful proposal. Once the hullabaloo dies down a little, Darcy is under the misapprehension that Elizabeth had been on the verge of saying yes, which makes things a little awkward. When she sets him straight, things get a little tense...and that's before it gets really interesting.

I love how you see a great deal more of Col. Fitzwilliam in this story that usual. Caught between Elizabeth and Darcy, then Darcy and Mr. Bennet...as well as between some other people I won't mention for fear of spoilers, you feel rather sorry for the poor man. Other favorites of mine were Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner, both of whom managed to be quite devious and lovable. You get to see a harsher side to Mr. Bennet and, surprisingly, to Mr. Bingley, which I found quite interesting.

My only very small complaint is that this book should have been longer. The beginning was just a trifle rushed, but mostly I just didn't want it to end so soon. I would have been very happy with another 200-300 pages so I could just wallow in the delicious romance.

Anyone who loves Austenesque re-tellings will love Mr. Darcy's Refuge. Sweet, funny, and absolutely lovely, I can foresee reading this again and again, just as I do most of Abigail Reynolds' books. This is not to be missed.

I received an advance e-copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Unrealistic but enjoyable 20 novembre 2012
Par Anna Sakkis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I loved the book but judging it objectively half of the premise is unrealistic. The part where Darcy and Elizabeth are stuck together in the parsonage due to the floods is realistic OK. The fact that Elizabeth's father would put such huge objections to the marriage and almost imprison Elizabeth, well, is not so believable. As regards to the description of the sexual encounters (approaching soft porn), again not very realistic that a young woman who has never even been kissed until she meets Darcy, will respond and make love like an expert 20th century woman. However, besides its shortcomings, the book is indeed very enjoyable and I am glad I purchased it. . .

1.0 étoiles sur 5 too sensual 2 novembre 2012
Par austenfan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
If you like to read about other people's sex in graphic detail then this book is for you. I, however, don't. The reason I like Jane Austen, Maud Montgomery, Shannon Hale, etc. is that I don't worry that I'll be let into the privacy of their character's bedrooms.

Ms. Reynolds has some good moments, especially in the end when Mr. Bennet and Col. Fitzwilliam are teasing and conspiring. Why, oh why, can't the whole book be like that? Elizabeth no longer has a sense of humor and Mr. Darcy is obsessed and can think only of her body. These are NOT the characters that Jane Austen wrote. I enjoy a good P&P take off as much as the next gal, but this was too much of a deviation from the characters I love.

The whole book is basically one sensual moment to the next sensual moment leading up to their wedding night. If you like to be turned on, then this book is for you.

Ms. Reynolds has talent and I wish she would have the courage to write her own book with her own characters in her own time-period. I'd read it with pleasure (as long as it left out the graphic sex, that is).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another wonderful book by Abigail! 26 août 2012
Par lisa martha - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is now one of my favorite P&P variations. As others noted I wish it had been longer, I didn't want it to end! Love the twist on Mr. Bennet, and although we didn't see much of him, Mr. Bingley also is a bit different than usually portrayed. ....this adaptation is definitely better than being hit in the head with a brick (once you read it you'll get it). Love, love love! Thank you Abigail!
