Happy Friday dear readers. I hope that you have some fun plans in store for your weekend—like reading!
I am happy to welcome Austenesque author Elaine Jeremiah back to Austenprose today. We last visited with her in 2019 when she published By Time Divided, her second novel in her Love Without Time series. Next up for Elaine is also a Jane Austen-inspired story, Elizabeth and Darcy Beginning Again which releases on February 2, 2021.
This Pride and Prejudice variation spins a different narrative from the original from the point at which Elizabeth Bennet is walking to Netherfield Park and she unexpectantly meets Mr. Darcy. Things take a surprising twist.
Elaine has kindly shared an exclusive excerpt for your enjoyment to give you a finer understanding of the beginning of her novel. Be sure to leave a comment to qualify to win an eBook of the novel. Enjoy!
Thank you for visiting today. Best, LA
Little does Elizabeth Bennet think the journey across muddy fields from her home at Longbourn to Netherfield Park will change her life forever.
But an unexpected encounter with the proud and haughty Mr. Darcy leaves her injured and vulnerable. Worse still, she is left alone with him for a significant amount of time. Her reputation at risk, she is forced to make a decision about her future. Now her life will never be the same again.
Can Elizabeth ever be happy? Or will she always loathe Mr. Darcy?
