Realisations: A Tale of Pride and PrejudiceRealisations: A Tale of Pride and Prejudice by Ola Wegner
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In 2010 while visiting Pemberley with Jane and Bingley, Elizabeth Bennet is involved in an accident which sends her back to 1813. Though I did finish the book I am not sure that I actually like either of the Darcys, or modern Elizabeth. I think I might have been more interested in reading about 1813 Elizabeth and her reaction to living in a modern time. So probably more of a 2.5 star rating

A Change of Heart: A Pride and Prejudice VariationA Change of Heart: A Pride and Prejudice Variation by E.A. Batten
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What if Darcy did not make the Hunsford proposal because Elizabeth reacted angrily to the Colonel and his story of Bingley. As the Colonel informs Darcy, Darcy's actions change and so the future changes.
An enjoyable tale, (of course I would have liked more about the Colonel's story).

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Who in the Bennet family wakes up with amnesia and how does the dynamics of the family change.
My only complaint is that I wish it had been longer. I really liked the story.
