Summary: Elizabeth overhears Mr. Darcy’s comments to Mr. Bingley at the Meryton Assembly, but is determined not to make a hasty judgment of the man. By the time the night is done, she comes to believe that he is not haughty, but is shy.

Gioia’s Rec:
I’ve read this multiple times, though it’s rather angsty by my standard. Elizabeth and Darcy fall in love with each other early on, but neither suspects the other’s feelings, so the story takes just as long to finish as in canon as a result. Happy ending, though.
My only critique: It’s not as memorable as some of the author’s other fics, since there are no huge, dramatic plot devices.  But it is quite well-written.


About Gioia

I'm a wife and mother and, when not tied up with responsibilities, I read non-stop. I love to share my favorite stories with others, thus the existence of my blog.
