This is the flip side of Jane Austenís Pride and Prejudice. This is Darcyís side of the classic book.

Fitzwilliam Darcy is more shy than he is outgoing. He is uncomfortable meeting new people and striking up conversations. That is until he meets Elizabeth, he finds her interesting and values her thoughts.

As Darcy and Elizabeth are thrown together, the more he is intrigued with her. When she turns down his marriage proposal he doesnít realize why. He is wealthy, not bad looking, he has a caring heart. When Elizabethís attitude forces him to take a good hard look at himself, she is the one who forces him to own up to his shortcomings and do something about it.

Anyone who has read Pride and Prejudice knows the story. I caught myself throughout reading Ms. Streetís novel, comparing it to Jane Austenís book. I didnít find the character of Darcy as well developed as he could have been. Elizabethís character was sometimes not believable. Fans of Jane Austenís will want to pick up and read The Confession of Fitzwilliam Darcy.
