Description

A chance encounter in the wilds of the North brings more joy to Elizabeth and Mr Darcy than either of them dared hope for. But her world is rocked by blow after blow - and the truth would only cause him pain. ‘I must be cruel only to be kind’ is Elizabeth’s guiding precept, and she chooses her path. Yet time, circumstances and new acquaintances teach her she had made a terrible mistake. 

How can she regain what she had lost and rebuild a future with the only man she will ever love, but for whom disguise of every sort is his abhorrence?

excellent and entertaining

love this story....great length to sink into for a good while and Ms Zimmerman has become my favorite voice for Darcy and Elizabeth tales. Characters are lively and provide varying depths of emotions. Ms Starnes has them face a crisis to challenge the inevitable outcome in a delightful way. A favorite duo for my money

Another solid book by Ms Starnes

I have read and/or listened to all of Joana Starnes' books and they are always enjoyable. The settings are wonderfully explained, the plots well thought out and the characters believable. The resolution between Darcy and Elizabeth was perhaps a bit too swift for my liking, but it did not require anyone acting out of character, so this is mainly about personal preference.

Stevie Zimmerman did an awesome job, as always.

Outstanding narration for this exquisite novel

In a field of many ardent and talented Jane Austen-inspired authors, we are blessed to be living in such days as these when self-publishing makes it easier for talented writers to find their niche. Starnes has long established her place at the top of several “Favorites” lists with bestsellers like Mr Bennet’s Dutiful Daughter, The Unthinkable Triangle, and Miss Darcy’s Companion. The Journey Home to Pemberley, her latest Pride & Prejudice reimagining, begs the question: How can Elizabeth Bennet find solace after she gives up the only man she will ever love?

In The Journey Home to Pemberley, that holiday to the Lake District with her aunt and uncle Gardiner takes place (remember in canon Mr Gardiner’s business would not allow an extended trip and so they had to content themselves with the celebrated beauties of Derbyshire) and, as Fate would have it, Elizabeth meets with Mr Darcy again. He was thrown from his horse and, when found, he was brought to the same inn where Elizabeth and her relatives have accommodations. While he convalesces, they reconcile their misunderstanding after that unfortunate proposal scene at Hunsford months before when she had strenuously refused him...and now love blooms. Can we dare to hope for a happily-ever-after so soon? Certainly not, as this is only the beginning of their journey. And as Pride & Prejudice-like circumstances arise, Elizabeth selflessly, even foolishly, alters their course:
“She could not inflict that curse upon him—have him bear that shame for as long as Lydia lived—for the rest of their natural lives, rather, for such an enormity would not be forgotten. Nor could she live with him day after day and witness the result. See the opprobrium eating away at him. See the love fading from his eyes. Between the surgeon’s knife and the gangrene’s slow poison, the choice was clear: she would take the knife every time. For his sake as much as hers. Cruel to be kind.”

Months after this folly, she learns what we knew all along: she erred in thinking her sacrifice had protected Darcy, creating only misery of the acutest kind. “Foolish, headstrong and misguided girl! Should you not have known better than to brave this alone?”
Oh Darcy, I couldn’t agree more!

But is Fate unkind throwing Darcy and Elizabeth together time and time again in this soul searching journey from the wilds of the North to Dorsetshire (and beyond) then full circle back to Pemberley? Of course not! We love that kind of push and pull as the tension builds, leaving us nearly breathless in anticipation for this hard won happily-ever-after:

“Her heart overflowing, Elizabeth ran her thumb in a gentle caress over the bold penmanship that was by now as familiar as her own. Just three words—but sometimes three words were enough. He had not gone as far as to plainly write ‘I love you’ lest the note be read by anyone but she. Yet it was all there—the love, the joy, the promise—in other words: ‘Not a dream.’”

(#swoon) Prose like that keep me coming back for more great Austenesque novels! This is author Joana Starnes at her best. For lovers of Darcy and Elizabeth, The Journey Home to Pemberley is a MUST READ. (Heat Index: rated Moderate for sexual references but not explicit)

Once again, narrator Stevie Zimmerman is outstanding and does this exquisite novel much justice!

A Roller Coaster Ride

Stevie Zimmerman did an excellent job as usual narrating this angsty tale by Joana Starnes. I very much enjoyed listening to it, though I must admit, the angst in the middle was pretty rough...for both Darcy and Elizabeth, and me.

Taking place after the Hunsford proposal, this story has Darcy travelling by himself, trying to let out his feelings. Lizzy is traveling north with the Gardiners. A storm causes all of them to meet at a remote inn. D and L get an unusual chance to talk in private, and it looks like they are going to have a second chance at happiness together. In fact, circumstances are such that Darcy travels north with the group, and they have a lovely time leisurely traveling to Pemberley, enjoying the sights. But then Elizabeth receives terrible news from Jane, and everything unravels. She feels the need to break things off yet again, and this time the separation is much worse.

While both of them deal with the separation in their own ways, they again meet when it is least expected. The pain and awkwardness is acute. Will those two ever be able to get to the truth of things? (Don't worry. The answer is yes. Be thankful for annoying matchmaking aunts and cozy book rooms.)

This is definitely an engaging story with some great new characters. I loved the Monkford sisters and their part of the story.

My Favorite P&P Variation

Sweet story, not vulgar, not predictable, and well written. My favorite P&P variation (and I've read over 30 books!)

A great deal of angst

This was okay, but a little too long and too full of angst. Darcy was my favorite character in this variation. I would have liked to slap Elizabeth. She caused so much unnecessary problems. She jilted poor Darcy twice! The Lydia plot was interesting and somewhat unusual. There was a new family introduced. They were rather nondescript. Jane and Bingley are present, but do not play a very big part. Bingley is in the Indies most of the time.

The narrator is good.

Good Story.

Liked the story but this isn't one I will listen to over and over. I felt too much heart ache for a reason that was, in my opinion, stupid not to tell the truth about. Elizabeth could have told the true reason she was leaving him and been headstrong about not wanting to be with him.
Most will like the story but for me it's not the romantic one that you love to read or listen to many times.

All journeys lead this duo to a HEA

This time I mean Joana Starnes and Stevie Zimmerman!

The story is written by Joana Starnes so you can be sure it won’t venture so far off canon as to be unrecognizable as JAFF, yet still and a change or two to make the story new again.

Now, give that story to the voice talents of Stevie Zimmerman and it truly comes to life. If you have not yet heard her perform a JAFF, you are in for a treat. Each voice is distinct and believable, male or female, young or old, upstairs, downstairs, stable or alley way.

Excellent Story and Wonderful Narration

Joana Starnes is my favourite JAFF writer and never fails to impress, not only with her wonderfully fulsome stories, with intense emotion, but also with her use of language, which is so beautiful. Every sentence is poetic and flowing. Stevie Zimmerman was an excellent narrator, bringing each character to life with her varying voices. The whole story came alive for me with her reading. Cannot say enough good things about both.

Another good piece from Joana Starnes

I enjoy Stevie Zimmerman's narrations. The story was good overall but sometimes seemed too winding a plot to get to the point. It was still an enjoyable reimagining of the Elizabeth-Darcy love story.

Captivating

I usually listen to audible on my commute, but I couldn’t limit my listening on this one. I kept my earbuds in all weekend until I finished the book. Starnes’ excellent writing and Zimmerman’s excellent narration join to make this P&P variation enthralling. Don’t hesitate to add this one to your collection. I’ll be listening to it many times over.
