The Weekend Rec: A Winter Wrong

A Winter Wrong by Elizabeth Ann West

Bored this weekend? Have a book rec!

If you liked my previous rec of Darcy and Anne, you might enjoy A Winter Wrong by Elizabeth Ann West. Jane Austen profic is a guilty pleasure of mine, but I can be a bit picky about it. However, I can heartily recommend A Winter Wrong, which, at novella length, is perfect for a cozy sit-down read to relax with after a long day at work.

The story is an AU of Pride & Prejudice rather than a sequel; it follows the Bennett girls after a tragedy strikes and their father passes away, leaving Mr. Collins in control of Longbourn. The story naturally focuses on the relationship between Lizzy and Darcy, though Jane and Bingley have a romance in the background that is left open, presumably for the sequel(s). I particularly enjoyed watching Lizzy process her feelings for Mr. Darcy while dealing with grief over her father’s death, and the way the story resolves itself is certainly not one I have seen in other profic. It’s a sweet story with some moments of genuine sadness but a hopeful ending, and I highly recommend it for romance fans looking for a quick, satisfying read.
