Classic Retellings - Pride and Prejudice: A Retelling

Paperback

Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy’s romance comes to life once more in a stunning and truly accessible retelling of Austen’s beloved classic from bestseller Laura Wood.

Witty, intelligent Elizabeth Bennet has no desire for a marriage of convenience.

And when she meets the handsome, wealthy Mr Darcy, her opinion of him is quickly set: he is aloof, selfish and proud – the last man in the world she would ever marry. Until their paths cross again, and again, and the pair begin to realise that first impressions can be flawed…

But as Elizabeth and Darcy become entangled in a dance through the strict hierarchies of society, will there be space for true love to bloom?
