A Favorite Daughter: A Pride and Prejudice Variation
Publisher: Regents and Cotswold Book Group
"That the wish of giving happiness to you might add force to the other inducements which led me on, I shall not attempt to deny." - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
Mr. Bennet had very often wished that, instead of spending his whole income, he had laid by an annual sum for the better provision of his children, and of his wife, if she survived him.
Alas, he did not live long enough to do it.
After her father's untimely death, Miss Elizabeth Bennet reads a letter from him in which he tasks her with the protection of her family.
Elizabeth is willing to do everything in her power to fulfill her father's dying wish, even if it means marrying a man she cannot love.
There is, however, one man whom she can love. Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy. The two start out as friends, but Mr. Darcy wants more. Much more.
Surely Elizabeth will not always sacrifice her own happiness for the sake of her family. Or will she?
