What if....

The last man in the world she could be prevailed upon to marry...is her husband?

In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet tells the proud Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy that she wouldn't marry him if he were the last man in the world.

But what if she never said the words? What if circumstances conspired to make her accept Darcy the first time he proposes?

In this installment of Abigail Reynolds's acclaimed Pride and Prejudice Variations, Elizabeth agrees to marry Darcy against her better judgment, setting off a chain of events that nearly brings disaster to them both....

Listener Opinions

    " I admit, I really wanted this to be a post-apocalyptic version of pride and prejudice, rather than what it was (an au in which Lizzie is obliged to accept mr Darcy's proposal the first time, despite still disliking him), but it was enjoyable enough, despite some occasional squicks regarding consent, which were, well, squicky. "

    " One of her better "What if" story lines in my opinion. Book still ahd a couple of bedroom scenes though near the end - and I had hopes of making it through without any but no such luck. Still an interesting what if version to P&P. "

    " As with most of Abigail Reynolds' novels, I had a hard time putting this down once getting into it. The premise is somewhat depressing: What if circumstances were such that Elizabeth was compelled to accept Mr. Darcy's first proposal? Basically, what if Mr. Darcy hadn't been put in his place? All the changes wrought within him would have to come about in a different way. And how would Elizabeth come to care for Mr. Darcy? A painful but good story. "

    " I loved it! This was a Pride and Prejudice variation novel. It takes one slight twist to the original and follows it like a winding river. It has all the emotional angst of the original plus some actual sex! Imagine! This was a highly enjoyable read. Try as I might to resist the stereotypically allure of chick lit, I cannot and enjoy guiltily enjoy it! To think that Pride and Prejudice started it all. I never tire of the endless variations of the original which for me remains a favorite, a book that I never wanted to end. Thanks to Abigail Reynolds, the story continues. "

    " Abigail's variations are great. I love to see where Elizabeth and Darcy's relationship could have changed. "

    " I thought this was a great story and I am really eager to read the other stories by Mrs. Reynolds. I really like the 'What if' scenarios and the different angles that are taken in these stories! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 9/26/2013

    " I actually cried while they were fighting and the love scenes were passionate without being raunchy. I read it all in one long bubble bath with chocolate. Perfect for that kind of night. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 7/22/2013

    " In this variation, Darcy kisses Elizabeth and it is witnessed so she feels she has to marry him but isn't happy about it. I didn't love Elizabeth's character--she lost her fire and was quite whimpy and felt it took a bit too too long to get to the needed HEA ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anna | 7/9/2013

    " Meh. Reynolds put Darcy's pride and Elizabeth's prejudice on 'roids. Not my favorite retelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 6/25/2013

    " Enjoyable read. I have enjoyed Reynolds's approach to the Austen legacy, influenced but not intimidated. This variation is based on the what if, instead of rejecting Mr. Darcy at his first proposal, Elizabeth Bennett is forced to accept the proposal or be compromised in the eyes of her world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 4/20/2013

    " This was a nice version to the traditional story. I found it touching and sweet but a bit too dramatic. All in all it was a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Pinell | 4/5/2013

    " Enjoyed this what if story. Good read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 4/3/2013

    " A fun book that is entertaining and easy to read - I completed it in a few hours. I have always enjoyed Jane Austen and it was fun to follow another's what-if scenario and see how she managed to work it out in the end. "
