C. Rafe Carlson grew up a voracious reader of just about anything she could get her hands on. Even so, it wasn’t until after graduating from college that she discovered—and fell in love with—the works of Jane Austen.
A biologist by trade, she spends her days studying the natural world and her nights inventing worlds of her own.

This book shows a complete departure from the original plot of Austen's Pride & Prejudice from the point of what started out as one of Elizabeth's pleasant walks in the extensive grounds at Rosings. Here she is attacked by Colonel Fitzwilliam who, in this universe is more a rogue than Wickham could aspire to. From this point the story continues from Darcy's perspective. At first I disliked the portrayal of Elizabeth as ao subdued but once her reaction to this unprovoked act wa accepted I settled down to enjoy a thoroughly good read. Most enjoyable story, well written in period prose, with beautifully drawn new characters was well worth shelving my own prejudices for in the process
