Another lovely Austen variation by Lory Lilian-I have thoroughly enjoyed all of her "alternative journeys" through the events of Pride and Prejudice. A few days before the Netherfield Ball, Elizabeth, hoping to escape the unwanted attentions of Mr. Collins, takes a long walk. An unexpected rainstorm causes her to seek shelter in a modest fishing cabin built and used by Mr. Bennet and Mr. Gardiner.

Rainy Days Author: Lory Lilian. After three full days of rain, the sky began to clear, and the sun finally seemed tempted to show its face. It was early morning, and everyone in the house was still in their rooms - except her. Elizabeth Bennet was having another sleepless night, no doubt caused by the long period of time she had to stay indoors and the fear of hearing Mr. Collins address her with an unwelcome proposal.

This is a sentimental favorite of mine because it was one of the earliest variations of Pride and Prejudice I read. I just finished it for the fourth time. It's not without some faults, but it is a romance I just can't help reading without a lot of deep sighs. Darcy is at his swooniest, Elizabeth displays passionate innocence, and the combo makes for good reading.

The basic premise is that a sudden and violent storm arises while Elizabeth is walking far from Longbourn. Darcy is unseated from his horse when she prevents him from galloping into a stream in the driving rain. Both must take shelter in a nearby cottage maintained by Mr. Bennet. They are already drenched and, to prevent getting seriously ill, Elizabeth must remove her clothes to dry by the fire, so she's covered by only a blanket. The awkwardness of the situation as they wait out the storm gradually leads to clearing the air between them regarding Wickham as well as Darcy's true opinion of her. By the time they are able to return to Longbourn, the pair is much more comfortable together. Elizabeth trusts him, and Darcy determines to stop fighting his attraction to her.

Even though Elizabeth now understands that she shouldn't believe Wickham implicitly, he still manages to create difficulties. She continues to get suckered by Wickham's nasty insinuations, and she allows them to adversely affect her. That's one of my pet peeves about this book. It is a repetitive pattern throughout the story that whenever Wickham whispers some little innuendo about Darcy in her ear, Elizabeth gets upset and assumes the worst instead of either recognizing Wickham's deceit or just straight out asking Darcy for his side of the story. It irritates Darcy-- and me!

However, it does make for fervent reconciliations between ODC, and Darcy manages to find lots of opportunities for alone time with his beloved. They share many stolen kisses and embraces. In all honesty, there are too many to be strictly believable and sometimes their declarations of love become sickly sweet, but it's all nicely written.

The added characters add the perfect amount of spice to the story. Lady Ellen Matlock, Colonel Fitzwilliam's mother, becomes Elizabeth's formidable ally. It's impossible not to love the Gardiners' youngest daughter, Becky, an adorably precocious child who takes a shine to Mr. Darcy. There are the usual antagonists; Mr. Collins, Lady Catherine and Caroline Bingley join Wickham as irritants trying to split up the couple.

This is not the very best piece of JAFF, but I can't help but embrace it because of my personal attachment that goes back 4 years.

On the whole I like it, but I must admit that I think it has its issues. Without giving away any real spoilers, the author seems to reuse the same plot point over and over in order to contrive every single obstacle in the story to drive the plot. Basically, someone, usually the same character, tells Elizabeth some half truth designed to show Darcy in the worst possible light, Elizabeth believes said character, freaks out (usually at Darcy, accusing him of whatever it was), Darcy explains the truth, they make up, they make out, rinse and repeat. She ALWAYS thinks the worst of him! Every freaking time! It just gets really old, really fast, and frankly it (and Elizabeth) gets downright annoying. Could the author not think of anything else to drive the plot? Granted, I can well see this being the case considering how ridiculously quickly the author had her fall in love with him. What else is the author of a romance novel to do for the rest of the book after she gets her characters together that quickly?

Giving it three stars because the prose is good and I think it's okay, just not great.

I'd say this is a relatively low angst story where Darcy and Elizabeth get together close to the beginning and any moments that may separate them later are resolved so quickly the angst doesn't really have time to build. I liked Elizabeth's relationship with Georgiana and I loved Lady Matlock and her change of heart, even if it came about quickly. I disliked the whiny Bingley character who kept becoming annoyed that Darcy moved faster than him. It was just about the only interaction between the characters and became rather monotonous. I got to the point I was constantly telling Bingley to just get on with it! There were some entertaining moments of playful banter between characters allowing Elizabeth to show some strength, even though her character was relatively weak in this story. I liked the Gardiner family with Becky stealing the show any time she was around. The amount of time Elizabeth and Darcy were left alone was a bit much for a storyline of this timeframe but it wasn't impossible to understand. It was well written and entertaining with just a few flaws.

I loved it!
It is a slow and at times painful way to HEA. Low angst but captivating non the less. Romantic and passionate. It made me laugh out loud several times and cry at one point... Loved little miss Beck, my favourite caracter in this novel.

Elizabeth scares Mr Darcys horse and he is unseated, they seek shelter in an old cottage from heavy rain. Forced together for several ours Lizzy starts to see a different side of Mr Darcy and Mr Darcy discover that Lizzy doesn't like him. This leeds to ODC understanding each other earlier than canon but it's a slow process with a lot of missunderstandings still. Wickham is at the Netherfield ball this time and is as mean as ever. Caroline and Lady C is no better.
Lot of the book takes place in London away from the Bennet family and there are no Hunsford or Pemberley.

Heartily recommend this Unputdownable novel.
