Description

“Please admire my docile and obedient nature. I will not thank you for providing us with a home, nor will I even breathe a word of gratitude for your provision of such funds as will feed us each quarter. I will not even write such platitudes as ‘You are very good,’ given that you have also provided us with respectability in the form of Mrs. Ingles. There. I am quite done now with not expressing my gratitude – I should not at all wish to prove tiresome.”

From the author of TactDear Nameless Stranger is a heartwarming tale inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Jean Webster’s Daddy Long Legs

Tragedy has struck the Bennet sisters but they are greatly relieved when the anonymous kindness of a stranger means that they can remain together. In exchange for such charity, a monthly letter is required from each sister. It is a fortunate thing that Miss Elizabeth Bennet rather likes letter-writing, for she relishes the opportunity to relate to this unknown gentleman all her impressions and opinions regarding her changed circumstances.

With each passing month, Elizabeth confides more in the nameless stranger, and by the time Netherfield Park is once again occupied by the amiable Mr. Bingley and his friend Mr. Darcy, she is quite frank in writing of her dismay.

lovely story, wonderful storytelling

I love this tale....while I wish the letters and narration were sequential, as there is no doubt from the beginning who the benefactor is, it is enjoyable all the same. Wonderful characterization and the narrator brings the characters to life wonderfully.

I was in tears, laughing out loud, this is a Must

One of my favorite P & P thus far! I absolutely loved it. Even throughs the is tragic loss I love how all 5 sisters loved each other. Perfect time of year read/listen. Goodness , kindness. I listened straight through Mr Darcy ugh, a woman’s dream man.

A wonderful read

I have read a many A pride and prejudice variation and have come to see that this is one of my favorites the narrator spoke very well she brought the book to life with her words and was able to bring the characters of the Bennett as well as Darcy to life. The story in itself is a wonderful read. even in the midst of tragedy the story goes and shows how one simple act of kindness can change the lives of so many if you’re in the mood for something lighthearted but immensely and deeply romantic I highly recommend this book. I bought this book I was not offered it I just found it randomly as I am a very big fan of pride and prejudice variations I hope this review me helps those just like me. I hope you all have a fun and happy read.

A jewel amongst JAFF stories.

While the first part of the book made Lizzy sparkle, the second part blew me away. The POV of her sisters not to mention Mr. Darcy's not only made me smile even laugh out loud at times, I was moved to tears more than once. Imagine Little Women but multiply its subtleness, sweetness, creativeness and emotions by a thousand.
To summarize my favourite parts would not do the word summarize justice for it would lead to numerous pages filled with unique scenes. Even JAFF affectionados who have read hundreds of P&P variations will have to admit that this story is not a weak copy of previously published plots but quite the opposite.
After reading and listening to this book, it is impossible to name my favourite character. I quite agree with Mr. Darcy at the end: I could love all Elizabeth's sisters as much as I love my siblings.
I look forward to the publishing of the audible version of Far from the tree. I had not thought it possible for Jeannie Peneaux to write another variation that could enchant me this much but she did. Far from the tree however contains many dialogues between Darcy and Lizzy that have the potential to make an audiobook most enjoyable. I wouldn't mind it being read by the same narrator for she did an excellent job.
I would have given Dear Nameless Stranger 10 stars easily and can recommend Jeannie Peneaux's P&P variations to all fans of Regency books.

Dear Nameless Stranger, I LOVED it!

Rarely do I comment on reviews, but I truly enjoyed this story. The narrator did well (wished her male voices were deeper, but hardly worth mentioning). I will definitely be listening to this one multiple times!

Loved it.

Original storyline with wonderful insights into the minds of all of the Bennet sisters. Managed to maintain the happy enjoyable reading that made us all Jane Austin fans to begin with.

delightful

a delightful story. I would prefer to have the first part integrated into the rest of the story. the narrator distinguished the characters well and struck the right tone. her subtle humor added complemented the authors wit and the author complemented the incomparable Jane. well done all!

Mashup

This book is a mashup of JAFF and Daddy Long-Legs fan fiction (does such a thing exist? Probably). Since I think Daddy Long-Legs has to be the best epistolary novel that exists, and yet still not as good as Pride and Prejudice for genius I think it was a wise plan to follow the basic plot of P&P and lean toward DLL in the character sketches. Overall the book is so sympathetic toward all the Bennet sisters and so unsympathetic toward certain other characters as to make them different people than they are in the original. But that’s the beauty of fan fiction-you can go wherever you like. This particular pairing works very well and made for an enjoyable and soothing afternoon.

Great story

This book was different. First there is Elizabeth’s letters and then Darcy’s side of the story. It was really good to see both sides. I highly recommend this book to a Jane Austen fan fiction lover.

One of my favorites P&P variations

This is a favorite story of mine. It shows an insight into the Bennet sisters that is rarely done and is quite beautiful. Because of the loss of both of their parents at once, the sisters are drawn together and work hard to make life easier for each other. While Collins does create much of the life problems for the girls, the main villain of the work is the circumstances, rather than any individual.

Darcy shows a great deal of care and concern for only Elizabeth at the beginning but as time goes on, he develops a brotherly love for all of the her sisters. What is quite lovely is that the usual, more familiar depiction of the girl's characters is shown through Elizabeth's eyes but Darcy sees what is going on inside of each one. The characterization of Lydia and Kitty is particularly lovely.

I also love that this story is told in two parts. First from Elizabeth's viewpoint. Second from Darcy's. I will often trade the chapters on my Kindle so that I can read Elizabeth's letter and then Darcy's reaction to it, since the chapters in each section have the same headings. On Audible, I just listen to it all straight through -- one story then the next. Either way is insightful, tender, and heartwarming.

Mandy Gasson does a nice job narrating, though I would wish for different sounds to the men. However, it was a good narration.
