Lizzy Fitzwilliam by Melanie Schertz

I think I found Lizzy Fitzwilliam via an Amazon email. Amazon loves to send me Pride and Prejudice variations suggestions. This one is very different from most because Lizzy is not a Bennet.

A quote from Lizzy Fitzwilliam by Melanie Schertz

The traditional cast of characters is a little different in this book. Elizabeth is a Fitzwilliam. She, along with Jane, are the daughters of Edwin and Ethel Fitzwilliam, the second son and daughter-in-law of the Earl of Matlock. Elizabeth grows up, knowing Mr Darcy as he’s her cousin.

A quote from Lizzy Fitzwilliam by Melanie Schertz

Anne and Gerald Darcy are still alive in this book. But there’s no Georgiana. While on the way to Pemberley to visit the Darcys, the Edwin Fitzwilliams are set upon by highwaymen. The parents and Jane do not make it. Elizabeth survives, but barely and she’s injured. After her family dies, Elizabeth lives with the Darcys.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In Lizzy Fitzwilliam, her grandparents, The Earl and Countess of Matlock are still around. Elizabeth is named after her grandmother, so she goes by Lizzy. Lizzy breaks both legs in the accident with the highwaymen, making her require the use of a wheelchair. Yet, her troubles are not completely over. There’s more afoot. Read to find out what.

Recommendation?

Lizzy Fitzwilliam does have the Bennets, but their eldest is Mary. Mr. Bingley is falling for Kitty. Mr Collins does make an appearance. All the normal cast is around (no Charlotte Lucas), but just not with the same familial ties. There’s a mystery to be solved. This is well worth the time to read. This one is on Kindle Unlimited.

And in case you hadn’t figured it out, my plan for 2021 is to write a blog post for each book I read. Last year, I read 150 books. We’ll see how I do this year.
