These Dreams: A Pride and Prejudice VariationThese Dreams: A Pride and Prejudice Variation by Nicole Clarkston
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This well-written story begins with the wedding of Lydia Bennet to Wickham but Darcy has failed to appear as promised. What happens to him and why is told.
I would probably rate this as 3.5 stars, and I would have given it a 4 star raring if there had been less angst described of Elizabeth and Darcy, or it it had only been implied. I would have preferred for the mystery to have been the main story as that, certainly for me, was the interesting aspect of this story.
