Summary: Elizabeth and the Gardiners intended to start their tour in June, as planned, but Mr Gardiner’s urgent business forced them to return to London and remain there for more than a fortnight. During this time, Elizabeth’s paths will cross with Mr Darcy’s again. However, Mr Darcy is not alone in London… The return of an old and dear friend will greatly influence him – and the entire story.
This story is very well written and the opening chapter alone makes me emotional. . The OC, Lady Cassandra, actually serves a valid purpose here and isn’t too Mary Sue-ish in fixing things early on.
My only critique: While multiple interesting subplots justify the excessive length, if it is professionally published it ought to be edited down or split into at least two books. Regardless, I can’t say I mind the length in a fanfic.
