I obviously continued right on with my Pride and Prejudice variations binge (I’m not sure why I went through so many, but luckily they are on Kindle Unlimited) with Unwilling. This one is available on Kindle Unlimited.
This variation picks up seven days after the Netherfield Ball. Mr. Bennet’s friend Withers comes to play him in chess. As Withers is also a doctor, Mr. Bennet has Withers examine him as he hasn’t been feeling well. Withers proceeds to tell him that Bennet has a year or two left due to his heart failing.
As a result of this news, Mr Bennet makes many changes, not including considering Lydia and Kitty no longer ‘out’ and hiring masters for all of his daughters. But most importantly, he wouldn’t refuse any offer that was made for any of his daughter’s hands.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In Unwilling, Mr Darcy and Elizabeth meet again at Rosings. Instead of applying directly for her hand, Mr Darcy goes to her father for permission to ask her to marry him. What does Mr Bennet say? Read to find out.
Unwilling is a fairly quick read. It does have quite a few storylines going on at once, like what will happen to Jane as she learns that not everyone is good. This is on Kindle Unlimited. It has some unique twists. I recommend it!
