Elizabeth to London and the shipyards and places her into the capable hands of Captain Wendell Elizabeth waves a tearful goodbye to her father and the Pemberley s Promise sails from the harbor

demeanor and the cut of his well made clothing and determined him to be a wealthy man in need of a wife Mr Darcy has determined his month long journey will not be so enjoyable Illness, storms, and

America They do not see each other again until Elizabeth returns home and finds that Jane is sick at Netherfield She then walks the three miles and suddenly finds herself face to face with Mr Darcy This is a cannot put it down journey for ODC I was up until 2 00 a.m trying to reach the HEA What a trip, what a journey, I loved, LOVED it It is so exciting, so steamy, so I can t get enough of them Our antagonists are aplenty Let s see, we have Caroline deliciously conniving , Wickham slinking snake in the grass, pain in the , Lady Catherine oh so vocal and devious and just plain mean , and Mr Collins, just cause We have all our wonderful characters, Colonel Fitzwilliam, Jane and Bingley This was so much fun It is a clean story with a feel good ending and our dear couple trying so hard to make everything right for their happy life The end and epilogue is so cute and delightful I simply loved it Update Having just re read this wonderful story I had forgotten how much I loved it and it was even better than I remembered I highly recommend this story What a delightful story I absolutely loved it I was wondering how realistic it would feel with Darcy and Lizzy making their way across

Update Having just re read this wonderful story I had forgotten how much I loved it and it was even better than I remembered I highly recommend this story What a delightful story I absolutely loved it I was wondering how realistic it would feel with Darcy and Lizzy making their way across to America on a ship but it surprised me how it really did seem feasible I was also worried about the length, it being quite a long story compared to the other variations I had read, but I didn t need to worry as the story flowed so well and I didn t want it to end I think the story didn t seem to drag at all because of the amount of screen time Lizzy and Darcy had There were not many scenes or large periods of time where Lizzy and Darcy were not together, which is good as the best scenes are always when they are together I loved the prologue Darcy and Lizzy meet in a carriage 2 years prior to the meeting on the ship and they get off to a good start and have an interesting conversation However, neither finds out who the other is, so when they meet 2 years later, they both have that feeling of having met before but it takes a while for them to properly put two and two together I really liked this running theme through the story and the question of when the other was going to realise they had already met The first half of the book was wonderful All the scenes on the ship were full of detail and the relationship between Darcy and Lizzy and how it developed was fun to read Darcy was the perfect gentleman and he was so considerate to Lizzy what he did for her was an act of the utmost chivalry We see their relationship flourish through morning walks up on deck and many incidents aboard the ship, Pemberley s Promise Darcy and Lizzy are both portrayed very well and she captures the essences of their original characters really well I thought it was very clever and interesting seeing how a prior meeting between our heroine and hero would affect the events which we see happen in the original the meeting at Netherfield, the Netherfield Ball, the visit to Pemberley, Lady Catherine s visit to Lizzy, Lydia s elopement I found it a lot of fun to see how some of the iconic conversations which take place in the original are affected because of this prior relationship as well, and seeing Caroline Bingley s rising suspicions about the two of them Georgiana was a fun character Her relationship with her brother was very sweet and I really enjoyed seeing her caring side towards her brother and also her detective nature coming out when trying to work out the reasons behind Darcy s low spirits and who this mysterious Elizabeth from Longbourn is The romance in this story was wonderful Whilst being completely clean, it was still highly romantic secret meetings and stolen kisses I was very pleased with how the question of when the couple s mutual love would be realised wasn t drawn out for too long and without giving too much away that once it was realised, it was never doubted it annoys me when a heroine keeping thinking he loves me , he doesn t love me , no wait he does the entire story, or vice versa The ending was wonderful it links in very cleverly to the beginning of the story which takes place on the ship and it is a very satisfying and pleasing end There is also an epilogue showing what happens to each of the characters in the story, which I like to have at the end of a story So, I shall bring my thought about this wonderful book to a close If you can t get enough of Darcy and Lizzy and want to read a story where they are thrown into completely different circumstances then this is for you The trip to America is a very different approach to the story and it is accomplished extremely well It was a highly enjoyable, witty, romantic and interesting story to read I highly recommend it and I look forward to her other work Oy This book was decidedly no bueno Alterna P P books are kind of my guilty pleasure, and this was was a cheap

public way, especially to a woman whose name he doesn t even know I see my carriage is here would bethan sufficient While the idea of having Lizzy and Darcy formally meet on a ship bound for America was certainly a new one, that s primarily because in the Regency era, people would NEVER have made such an enormous trip for a couple of months It was cost prohibitive and hugely dangerous If, as the story would have us believe, Mr Gardiner had to go to America for business reasons for six months, there s no way he would have uprooted his entire family to go with him And, if they were staying for that length of time, there s no way they would have stayed in a boarding house Likewise, Darcy would never have stayed with the family of Georgiana s companion Around 35% of the book takes place on the journey from London to New York again, historically in accurate The ship would have sailed from Liverpool or at least put into an Irish port for supplies and passengers and is therefore effectively the same events repeated over and over again The term aloft is misused throughout to mean to go up on deck , which meant that every time the word was used, I had a mental image of Lizzy standing in the topsail rigging in her half boots and Empire waisted dress Even the American history is inaccurate PP was published in 1813 but most agree that it s set a couple of years earlier And yet we have people on board the ship who are going to settle in the Dakotas Which didn t see permanent European settlement until 1817, and even that was a fur trading post hardly the place you d take your wife and two daughters to live.The basic gist of the story is that Lizzy and Darcy get into a sham marriage on the ship so that she can have a comfortable bed, and they plan on getting an annulment later Except that they never actually exchange address information, so how is he supposed to let her know that he s actually gone through with the annulment Further, large parts of the plot from that point on revolve around their marriage certificate Except that marriage certificates weren t issued in the UK until July 1837 when the Registry Office was introduced to track all births, deaths, and marriages So the fact that they wouldn t have had a marriage certificate negates at least half the plot Plot aside, the writing is clunky, constantly using five words when one will do or bizarrely constructed, with sentences like He tried to grasp the words he just heard, determining if he could have somehow misunderstood the words or You must engage her to talk common throughout The dialogue is frequently far too modern, including phrases like she pretty much decided and I would love to see you Many of the supporting female characters have names that probably never graced a Regency ballroom, including Jenna, Amanda, Lauren, Lenore and Madlyn MADLYN REALLY As if all of that wasn t sufficient enough to put you off reading this, we add in the servants All the relationships between servants and masters are far too informal I seriously doubt that Darcy s valet, on finding out that his master has been robbed of several pieces of diamond jewellery would apologise for the inconvenience with the vast majority of servants referring to Mr Darcy by name, rather than as sir This even applies to the servants of friends the Gardiners maid greets him with something along the lines of Mr Darcy It s good to see you back , which would never have taken place if she d been even vaguely interested in keeping her job In summary, do not read this tripe It s one giant historical inaccuracy from start to finish, packed with clumsy writing, poorly thought out concepts, and is desperately in need of a decent editor Add in the fact that apparently Shakespeare has chapters, and I can happily tell you that if I had a physical copy of this book, I would be stabbing it repeatedly with a basilisk fang, because it deserves nothing less ( Pdf ) ☨ Darcy's Voyage ☭ A Tale of Uncharted Love on the Open Seas In this enchanting and highly original retelling of Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet sets out for the new world aboard the grand ship Pemberley s Promise She s prepared for an uneventful voyage until a chance encounter with the handsome, taciturn Mr Darcy turns her world upside downWhen Elizabeth falls ill, Darcy throws convention overboard in a plan that will bind them to each other deeply than he ever could have imagined But the perils of their ocean voyage pale in comparison to the harsh reality of society s rules that threaten their chance at happiness When they return to the lavish halls of England, will their love survive Darcy s Voyage, originally published as Pemberley s Promise in 2007, is a phenomenal Pride and Prejudice variation in

In addition, he criticizes his fellow female passengers as looking meagerly tolerable and deems them not handsome enough to tempt him Elizabeth, on the other hand, while sleeping in the stifling and overcrowded steerage, enjoys befriending her fellow passengers and charitably spends her time tending to those who are unwell To continue reading, go to I very much liked this clean P I dislike this
