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 down.
When Elizabeth falls ill, Darcy throws convention overboard in a plan that will bind them to each other more 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?
I found this interpretation of Pride and Prejudice to be solidly written and well researched. Written with imagination, orginiality, and skill, author, Kara Louise, proves she knows her "Austen." Highly recommended to Austen fans.
