Présentation de l'éditeur

A Pride and Prejudice "What If?" Story... This retelling of Pride and Prejudice asks “what if” events prevented Fitzwilliam Darcy from proposing to Elizabeth Bennet that day at Hunsford parsonage? Darcy arrives with marriage on his mind, only to find Elizabeth has just received news her father is critically ill and not expected to live. In the process of offering his help to her in traveling home, Darcy discovers what she really thinks of him—and it’s not good. Should Darcy deliver Elizabeth home to be with her family and then disappear from her life, or should he propose another kind of help? Will Elizabeth be willing to sacrifice her future happiness to save her family from financial ruin? Or, do she and Darcy, two very stubborn people, have a chance of finding happiness together?

Biographie de l'auteur

Ms. Mason-Milks says, “Writing stories inspired by Austen’s books offers a way to spend more time with characters I’ve grown to love. Just because the book ends, it doesn’t have to be the end of the story.” In addition to writing, her other loves include singing in "a cappella joy" (a women's barbershop chorus), reading, and yoga. She currently lives in Seattle with her husband and their three cats. In addition to her blog at http://www.austen-whatif-stories.com, she is also part of a group blog called austenauthors.net.

I always enjoy spending time with Darcy and Elizabeth. I especially like reading variations. This Pride and Prejudice variation begins in Hunsford, right before Darcy proposes to Elizabeth. Before he gets to the parsonage to propose, she receives a letter from Jane explaining that her father is seriously ill. He is not expected to live much longer and Jane pleads for her to come home quickly. In her distress, Elizabeth tells Darcy, who then offers her the use of his carriage. She questions why he would want to help since he doesn't like her. She goes on to tell him she knows how he interfered with Jane and Bingley. This surprises him, he doesn't propose and decides to try to change her opinion of him.

Darcy follows her to Hertfordshire bringing Bingley with him. He proposes to her there, stating that he can help her and her family in the event of her fathers death. After thinking about his offer she decided to take him up on it. It is understandably, an unhappy time for Elizabeth.

After Mr. Bennet's death, Darcy and Elizabeth go to Pemberley, where many misunderstandings begin. I must say, I was getting a little frustrated with how long it was taking for them to begin understanding one another. When they finally resolve their differences it is very good!

Overall I really enjoyed reading this story.

HASH(0x967e1f0c) étoiles sur 5 Sweet Story of Redemption 25 septembre 2011

This 'what-if' story begins right before Darcy's horrific proposal to Elizabeth at Rosings Park. Darcy turns his mea culpa into a proposal of codependent proportions. Wanting to be everything he thinks Elizabeth wants him to be, he goes overboard trying to make her comfortable and happy, and fails miserably. The story includes a lot of PG-13 sexual tension with Elizabeth not knowing why she 'reacts' the way she does to a man that she doesn't even really like. Charming! My favorite parts of the novel involve Colonel Fitzwilliam making fun of Darcy's dilemma.

I love Pride and Prejudice and I love to read variations on the story. I don't require that the plot stick strictly to canon--becuase what would be the fun in that--but I do require consistency of the characters. This Darcy is true to character. Although canon Darcy is very reserved, Jane Austen gives the reader hints throughout the tale and especially towards the end, that his emotions, once engaged, can be very intense. So the idea of a Darcy who is loyal and willing to humble himself (to a certain extent) to win Elizabeth is not what caused my disappointment in this book.

Rather, my problem revovled around Elizabeth. This Elizabeth thinks the worst of Darcy and continue to think ill of him without ever giving him the benefit of the doubt. Having read a LOT of Pride and Prejudice variations and fanfiction, I think my pet peeve would be those stories that make Elizabeth non-communicative in order to create angst--and thereby a plot--through miscommunications and misunderstandings between Darcy and Elizabeth. This Elizabeth is cruel--yes cruel--and depressed. We can understand her initial depression since she is dealing with the death of her father. However, having made the decision to "sacrifice" herself by marrying Darcy, I would like to have seen her make some effort at trying to make a successful marriage. Instead, this Elizabeth is childish and petulant in her behavior. For example, there is a section where Darcy mentions that he heard she is settling in well as the Mistress of Pemberley. And what is Elizabeth's response? Anger that he is checking up on her. The anger would be excusable if the author had laid a foundation of Darcy constantly checking up on Elizabeth and undermining her authority or questioning her suitability as the mistress. However, there is none of this. Darcy is really a perfect husband and so why Elizabeth would reach this conclusion is mind-boggling.

On another occasion, Elizabeth rearranges the furniture only to learn that Darcy had it rearranged back to its original configuration. Elizabeth gets upset to the point where the housekeeper realizes that she is upset. And what does Elizabeth do? She goes off for a walk, falls asleep outside, and then gets angry at Darcy for being concerned. Without ever telling him what pissed her off. And Darcy isn't stupid so he knows that she's upset and questions her about it. Yet, she still doesn't tell him

I realize that Elizabeth Bennet was young when she married Darcy. And in this version, she is even younger. However, women married young back then and I would like to think that they matured faster than we do today. So her childish behavior really turned me off this book. In this Elizabeth Darcy, I do not see Mr. Bennet's daughter, but Mrs. Bennet's daughter. She shows no undertanding or discernment, and all of her attention is directed towards herself and HER sufferings and HER misfortunes.

Aside from the plot, there is something about this book that reads as though it were originally a fanfiction, and quite honestly, the kind of fanfiction that would have driven me nuts. Each chapter, which I read on my Kindle, is about 2-3 pages. That would translate to about 1-1.5 pages on a real book. It really cuts into the story as it is and results in having a disjointed story. However, if I were reading this on a fanfiction site with regular postings, I would not have finished reading this story since the short posts would have driven me crazy.

I just finished reading the book, and must say that I enjoyed it! I was very satisfied once it was over, but in the middle I became very frustrated by how many misunderstandings this couple had. I do love to read angst, but there were so many times that I wanted to strangle Elizabeth, Darcy or both! Very well written, and worth every penny!

It has been said that you know you are a success when others imitate you. Jane Austin must be the greatest success of all time as many authors imitate her style and even rewrite her books. I have read several of these imitations and sequels and "what ifs" and have found them less than satisfying. "Mr. Darcy's Proposal" is the exception. The playfulness of Elizabeth and the masked insecurity of Mr. Darcy are there for the reader to enjoy. I did get frustrated by all the misunderstandings, but that only indicated to me how much I was caught up in the story.
Read it. You'll love it.
