Pride and prejudice variation
For review

If you have not noticed (which I doubt), is that I really enjoy pride and prejudice variations. I do not know why but I just love seeing Darcy and Lizzy fall in love, in a million different ways.

In this one instead of writing a letter Darcy went away, married, had a daughter, wasn't that happy, and tried to forget her.

Lizzy's dad died, she went to live with Jane, and then she decided to become a governess. Which is not the best position. It is not being a servant, it i not being one of the upper crust. Instead men can try to take advantage and you will be ruined for future service. Then she gets a job at Pemberley.

He will obvi realise he still likes her. She will finally start to fall for him. There will be drama, and there will be a happily ever after.

I enjoyed this take and kept rooting for these stubborn, proud people. (Bit sad Colonel F did not show up!).

A great book to read now as you know they will be happy

Seven years after Darcy’s disastrous proposal, Darcy is in need, not of a wife, but of a governess for his young daughter. Imagine his surprise when he discovers Elizabeth Bennet on the list of possible candidates provided by the employment agency. The question is, should he take her on as a governess, or would he be playing with fire?

Elizabeth Bennet is forced by her reduced circumstances to take on a position. However, when Mr. Darcy invites her for an interview, she is embarrassed and humiliated. How could she possibly live under the same roof as the man she had rejected so strongly seven years ago?

Whatever decision she makes, there will be a high price to pay… one way or the other.
