The Companion's Secret: A Pride and Prejudice VariationThe Companion's Secret: A Pride and Prejudice Variation by Linda Thompson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After a carriage accident that kills her three younger sisters and parents, Elizabeth is left at Longbourn with the Collins - Harold Collins and his son Walter. Fearing for her life she decides not to burden the Gardiners (where Jane is staying) but make her way as a companion and governess. It is fortuitous that she meets the Darcys.
In this variation Elizabeth and Darcy seem to have no faults, and the villains no redeeming qualities. As much as I love the villains, to counteract the sweet, at least one of them should have had one spark of goodness.
