SUMMARY Rocks In The Stream

READ ¶ Rocks In The Stream A twist on a classic favorite finds Pride and Prejudice’s Mr Bennet recently deceased and Jane doing her best to manage the Longbourn estate While traveling to his new home Charles Bingley accompanied by his frie. This book was a loan from MonicaAs we read in the book description or in the sample Mr Bennet is dead and Jane has inherited Mrs Bennet bemoans the fact that Jane won t sell everything and hue off to London for to marry off all the girls Lizzy goes off for her morning walk falls and hits her head and so is unconsciousFirst I read all the other reviews Some are uite harsh about the fact that in this novel the characters we know from canon have different behaviors I would say that in reading this genre JAFF one must come to expect that there are going to be some differences And yes I have found some authors who only seem to use the names and places we all have come to love as a draw to sell their story But I have found I can still enjoy the story and find that part of the enjoyment is looking for similar plot excerpts some recognizable behaviors some chemistry between our favorite protagonists andor even Jane Austen s words tumbling out of different persons mouths and in different circumstancesThat being said the main similarity that I found in this novel is the fact that Darcy despite falling in love with Elizabeth and even sharing that fact with her and gasp kissing her makes a cold hard decision that he can never marry her due to her family and connections All this after he and Bingley have come upon the unconscious young lady as they ride to inspect Bingley s newly leased estate They take her back to Netherfield and send for Bingley s London doctor OK here I uestioned in my mind Are all of Bingley s servants his housekeeper etc from Londonas no one seems to know who this young lady is Darcy feels protective and caring towards her from the first instance he cradles her form in his arms on the path side He visits the sickroom with the servant Anne as a chaperone and determines she must at least be a gentlewoman as her hands are soft and she has an air of intelligence about her I have wonderment about that last statement how does an unconscious woman project an air of intelligence But OK let s get on with the story Back at Longbourn everyone finally misses Lizzie and then implore all their friends and acuaintances plus the local militia to search Bingley and Darcy search by stopping at cottages and farms but with no success Finally after three days the cook goes into town to the butcher and learns the name of the missing young woman is Elizabeth Bennet The two men are informed and go to Longbourn to inform the family as to not only her whereabouts but also her condition Jane has now met BingleyElizabeth cannot leave just yet due to her injuries so there is plenty of time for visitation between all these characters Elizabeth develops a high fever which Darcy knows to help relieve with ice packsGeorgiana had a similar problem in the past Now we meet a man whose behavior is new to us He not only helps nurse Elizabeth but as time passes and she wakes up her pours out his history to her all the sadness with his own parents illnesses and deaths etc She talks of her father s death After days of bed rest Elizabeth insists that she must get some fresh air walks out and ends up sitting on a rock by a stream Here is where Darcy finds her and the kiss happens But now Darcy ponders his father s deathbed demand My only advice is this Marry your eual Wed yourself to a woman of beauty rank and fortune He departs for LondonThe rest of the story is yours to read Darcy is a fool if he thinks no one else of any worth can be attracted to Elizabeth and offer for her hand But will she finally decide to do the sensible thing as she has heard nothing from him nor is there any sign of Darcy ever returning And as he is courted by eligible women in town will he obey his father s order We spend lots of time inside his head reading of his arguments for and against what he thinks is his fate and how his heart leans We also read of Elizabeth s sense of betrayal And there are many family members to give each advice as to how to actWe meet a new family in this story a Mr Grinly a widower and cousin to Mrs Gardiner who along with his 14 year old daughter Constance come at the invitation of Mrs Bennet to visit for a while at Longbourn I did so enjoy becoming acuainted with this fine upstanding gentleman and his daughter They are endearing personsIf you enjoy a story with lots of angst with misunderstandings with stumbling twists in the relationships of ODC then you just might find this tale fascinating I did


READ ¶ Rocks In The Stream Nd Fitzwilliam Darcy come across an injured young woman who has fallen against a rock and is unconscious As the men work to discover her identity and reunite her with her family they learn what it is to love For on. I don t even know exactly how to describe this book Calling it a Pride Prejudice variation is incorrect the author throws out the entire plot of Miss Austen s work Calling it Pride and Prejudice Alternative isn t right either None of the main characters are recognizable without their name and many many many of the ancillary characters are totally missingIf your favorite P P characters are Lady Catherine Anne Mr Collins Charlotte Colonel Fitzwilliam Lydia Kitty Bennet the Hursts the Matlocks Mrs Reynolds George Wickham Aunt Phillips and most of the population of Merryton they are absent Caroline Bingley is a shadow of herself who essentially goes out one day and never returns while the Gardiners are barely present or mentioned But all of these things could be forgiven if you like the main characters In this P P universe Jane is strong outspoken and take charge Bingley is self assured and strong willed Georgiana has brains and personality and uestions Darcy Mrs Bennet is cruel and verbally abusive to Lizzy Most objectionably Lizzy and Darcy are substantially changed and not for the betterAs I read I kept trying to find a way to describe the main characters and all I can come up with are it s Pride Prejudice adolescent angst version Darcy falls in love with an unconscious Lizzy what is it with P P universe head injuries it s becoming a trope She is non responsive for several days and the longer it went on the creepier I found it It was like Sleeping Beauty syndrome not to mention the impropriety of Darcy being in the bedroom of an unknown woman Also creepy he took one of her bonnet ribbons and keeps it like a talismanWhen Lizzy awakens she is even wonderful than he dreamed she is truly his ideal woman They spend their days talking and falling in love Then he remembers that his dead father would object to her and her family and flees to London And Lizzy falls into a weepy mopey self deprecating depression Just like a modern 12 year old with her first crushWhen he returns for the Netherfield Ball he and Bingley argue over the low connections of the Bennets and Lizzy overhears Now her heart is broken forever for she will never love another While Darcy returns to London and mopes around like an emo goth kid all while trying to forget Lizzy and please his dead fatherSeveral obstacles stand in their way but true love will out At this point Lizzy reminded me of that woman we all know who is with the guy who is bad for her and he makes her unhappy but she always takes him backbecause she loves him And all is well they marry and are very very very happy The only connection to Pride Prejudice I can find are the characters names and locations otherwise its just a mediocre regency romance novel
