Will a mysterious note from the past doom the love of Jane Austen’s most beloved couple?
A Peculiar Connection begins near the close of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. Bent on preventing the engagement of her nephew to Elizabeth Bennet, Lady Catherine de Bourgh declares that any union between Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth would be “a sin against Heaven itself!” Her shocking revelation, along with a cryptic message written over twenty years earlier, thrusts the couple into a whirlwind of heartbreak and disbelief.Could a deserted mansion in Derbyshire or a small church hidden in the wood hold the key to solving the puzzle? And why is Elizabeth inexplicably drawn to the portrait of three young boys in Pemberley’s gallery?Determined to confirm or refute Lady Catherine’s accusation, Darcy and Elizabeth are forced to embark upon a twisted trail into bygone days and family secrets. All the while, they must endure the exquisite torture of denying the indisputable desire that still hovers between them.From the award-winning author of An Arranged Marriage The Journey and The Secret Betrothal

tagmargierevewWhat if Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth could not be together because of a certain familial connection?  A devastating familial connection.  A connection that will make everything you know and love about Darcy & Lizzie no longer a possibility!!!!

This book put me through the ringer! I was holding my breath as I was glued to the pages! I was wiping my tears as I tried to keep calm, It was impossible for me to put down, I had to get to the bottom of the mystery!!!

Oh my gosh! It was so good! Such an intriguing and unique alternative to Pride and Prejudice! Told in perfect Austen prose,  you would never know you weren’t  reading an Austen novel.  Filled with heartache, turmoil and finally joy, this book ranks at the top of all P&P Alternate Variations. It was simply wonderful.

“When did you first know that you loved me? He smiled. “I hardly know. I was in the middle before I had even begun.” (*swoon*) ~Mr. Darcy
