In this humorous, topsy-turvy Pride & Prejudice variation, all the gender roles are reversed. It is Mr. Bennet’s greatest wish to see his five sons advantageously married. When the haughty Miss Elizabeth Darcy comes to Netherfield with the Widow Devonport (nee Bingley), speculation—and prejudice—runs rampant. William Bennet, a reluctant and irreverent future reverend, catches Miss Darcy’s eye, even though he is beneath her station. His opinion of her was fixed when she slighted him at the Meryton Assembly. As her ardour grows, so does his disdain; and when she fully expects to receive an offer of marriage, he gives her something else entirely …
The story gives us numerous exquisite moments, not only for it’s wittiness and irony which is the common denominator throughout the book, but it also makes us witness to warm conversations between brothers and the individual thoughts of each character reflecting their particular personalities which constantly leaves you with a smile on your lips, with tender feelings, and an appreciation of how well this or that scene was crafted.
