Romance Variations

Lady Catherine Takes Charge by Shana Granderson

I continued my Pride and Prejudice variations binge with Lady Catherine Takes Charge. Shana Granderson is an author that I had read before so I thought I would like this one.

A quote from Lady Catherine Takes Charge by Shana Granderson

This variation alters many characters before our dear couple ever meet. Lady Catherine loses her daughter and husband in a phaeton accident, which leads Lady Catherine to face some unpleasant truths about herself. She can’t control everything or everyone. Instead, she can only control herself.

A quote from Lady Catherine Takes Charge by Shana Granderson

Mister Collins is not the sycophant of canon. Instead, he has a good head on his shoulders and recognizes Mary as his true helpmeet. Jane has a clearer understanding of how much her mother pushes away her suitors, when one ends up marrying Charlotte Lucas. Elizabeth sees her father for who he truly is. Alas, our dear Mr. Darcy is not changed, at least, not yet.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In Lady Catherine Takes Charge, we see a very different Lady Catherine. While our dear couple is still intact, others from canon are no longer. Which couples will be together and which are torn asunder? How does that change our story? Read and find out.


Lady Catherine Takes Charge is a variation with an interesting take that I had not read before. The story features a Lady Catherine who waits to see if people need help, rather than barging in and throwing about unsolicited advice. This one is available on Kindle Unlimited.
