Fitzwilliam Darcy is arrogant, reserved and persnickety, yet he wishes the hand of Ms. Bennet. When she turns him down, he refuses to give up. He intends to prove to her there is another side to him as a loving and humble suitor, dying to come out of his shell.
Elizabeth Bennet is not too keen on Mr. Darcy’s attitude and even more so when he asked for her hand in marriage. There is only one thing to do and that is to reject his offer. When he refuses to give up, she sees a change in him that allows her heart to see a better side.
Mr. Darcy has always been told by his dear aunt that his future wife, whomever that be, must be from a family of background and repute equal to his own. After receiving a letter from his sister, he decides to leave his home in search of the one love certain to fit the criteria. Elizabeth’s first impression of Mr. Darcy is not one that she would consider being around until he begins to redeem himself. He has many anxieties that are disturbing and tries to overcome his obstacles. He did go to look for her when he imagined that she had left her home, still he has many problems that she wishes he could sort out. Mr. Darcy, on the other hand, must consider his heart if he desires Elizabeth to see him as a loving person. After her silence begins to threaten their mere existence, he begins to have doubts if he will ever have anything with her. He vows to show her just how important she is to him in every way. As the days pass before them, the two forge together to find that one passion in life that can finally draw them closer as one.
Darcy’s Story is a wonderful delight to read. From the beginning, the reader is drawn into a reminiscing of Jane Austen’s masterpiece of Pride and Prejudice as Mr. Darcy’s story is told. As an elder brother, Darcy is compassionate as well as a good friend to his nearby associates. It is captivating watching the way his love for Elizabeth grows as he slowly changes into a better person to win her love. Ms. Aylmer completes the book with romance and passion that last throughout the end of time. I found myself being swept away by the nostalgic events in the story itself. The characters are refreshing and almost pull the reader inside the center of the era. It is a story worth reading over and over, in any age, where true love exists for all to behold.
