    Am I the first to comment, again? (Overexcited, and the time zone helps!) So we discover Jane and Lizzy are together!!!

    Darcy, you are in far too deep. No use resisting. Please have mercy on your readers! Maybe 4x a week of posting longeeeeer chapters? πŸ˜›

    Lizzy, I sense a bit of bitterness… that mention of how much she missed her old (status) life. I wonder if it means she feels terrible that had he still liked her, he would definitely not even consider her now?

  2. Haha oh I think Bingley will be in as much danger of falling for Jane Bennet now as he was in Hertfordshire to be honest!
    Somehow I don’t feel pity for Darcy, though I do not feel bad for Darcy at all! I do hope that Elizabeth will haunt his waking and sleeping hours so help him god if he is a high-handed prick…

  3. Ann Isom says:

    Poor Mr. Darcy…such a quandry he’s in it would appear! So enjoying this (and I must agree with Mel…but please, no pressures Cass!!!) ❀

  4. Jessica says:

    Return to the Grange!!! Woohoo!

  5. Carol says:

    Yes, Darcy, I fear the only sensible alternative is to return to the Grange as soon as humanly possible! Ha! Looking forward to the next encounter!
    (BTW — Thank you for that bath time visual!)

  6. Jan Steele says:

    Ah, I dearly love a delusional Darcy. Yes, dear man, return to the Grange to determine if Jane is in residence (you are simply going to ensure you will be able to protect Bingley’s sensibilities). Then, return to the Grange again to collect your cravat, which you will conveniently forget on your second visit. Then, return to the Grange again to bring them some of your cook’s famous jam. Then, return to the Grange again to drop off some rabbits that were killed by the men in the house party. Then, return to the Grange again to play a game of chess with Mr. Bennet. Of course, you should never think that you are returning to the Grange because you want to see Elizabeth — you have put Elizabeth behind you — yes, that’s your story and you’re sticking to it.

  7. JanisB says:

    I’m happy that it’s Elizabeth and Jane with their father, but am I the only one concerned about the fate of Mary and Kitty?

  8. Cristina says:

    I am concerned for Kitty and May’s fate! I hope they are in London with the Gardiners. Can’t wait to know more. Is Mr Wentworth a relation to Captain Wentworth? Is he perhaps developing a tendre for dear Jane? So many questions…so much to look forward to…Loving it.

  9. Cristina says:

    I meant Mary 😁

  10. Peggy Kuehl says:

    Oh, Cass… my daily lightening round. It gets me going and leaves me hanging! And I am wondering how ODC can ever unite with such a chasm of status looming between them.

  11. justjane1813 says:

    Sometimes a more “desperate” Elizabeth makes a less rational Darcy! Oh, how will Bingley react when he sees “his” angel? Thank you for posting, Cass!

  12. Luciana Campelo says:

    Thank you for posting!

  13. Bobby says:

    CASS I so look forward to the next chapters. I adore Lizzy and Darcy, Jane && Bingley.
    Where as Kitty && Mary gone too? CAN’they wait for Thursday!!!!!!

  14. Janet Taylor says:

    I’m intrigued by both Darcy’s and Lizzy’s reaction. I also cannot wait to hear Mr. Bennet speak more of the water dousing! lol

    Now, is the Mr. Wentworth, Captain Wentworth’s brother that is a vicor? Might he possibly be married to Mary or Kitty? Hmmm, or is he interested in Jane? So much to think about, here.

    I also am loving that Darcy’s valet is ‘Thornton’ and a ‘Higgins’ was mentioned earlier too. Whether this is coincidence or a nod to names in North & South, I don’t know, but I like it much! Which might it be, fair author? πŸ™‚

    Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us. I look forward to tomorrow’s post. I think I’m with Mel too! lol We would have you give us the complete book immediately, wouldn’t we? Not a bad idea! I’m so happy you took this one up again. It’s too good to set on a shelf gathering dust.

    • Cass says:

      Glad you spotted the Wentworth connection, Janet!

      I have to admit to being a huge N&S fan, so yes, I do tend to use names from that book/adaptation, hence using Latimer! Thornton was the name of Darcy’s valet in A Fair Prospect, so I was just being lazy, but I do have a whole back story for him not relevant to this story (he’s John Thornton’s grandfather).

      • Janet Taylor says:

        That is neat! I would love to know more about that back story. I’m also looking forward to learning more about the Wentworth connection.

  15. Anji says:

    Didn’t get a chance to catch up with Capter 11 yesterday, much as I would live to have done so. A busy day out with our friends out paid to that, so I’m trying to sneak in before the last episode of the GBBO on the BBC. At least I’ll only have to wait one day for the next chapter.

    Darcy’s definitely deluding himself, isn’t he, when he thinks he’s returning to The Grange just to find out if Jane is the other sister is residence. He only has Bungley’s (sorry I’ve lodged that typo permanently into your mind, Cass) best interests in mind of course (yeah, right!). The bathing scene was very wel received here too.

    I spotted the Wentworth reference too. A husband for Mary or Kitty, or a suitor for Jane? Well, I guess all will be revealed in the fullness of time. I’m wondering what Elizabeth is going to think, and feel, when she meets her ‘rival’.

    • Cass says:

      Time with friends is precious, Anji. Chapters are always there to come back to! πŸ˜€

      Just watched GBBO, both me and hubby tearful at the end!

      LOL re the bathing scene. Not long until the return of Bungley! πŸ˜€

  16. I am sooooo enjoyingthis story, Cassandra!! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

    Warmly,
    Susanne πŸ™‚

    Oh, Darcy, Darcy, Darcy! Me thinks he doth protest too much.
    Looking forward to seeing what will befall them on the morrow. Another half-hazard encounter?
    Very telling that Jane seems happy – after all the tragedy. Mayhap she is the one who likes the vicar, or mayhap even with the fall of her sister and death of her mother she subconsciously realizes things are more peaceful. Those two are the definition of drama after all.
    I like a foxy Darcy with messy hair and no cravat, who wouldn’t?

  18. Mel says:

    And yes, I am lurking already. It’s that time of day when I settle down with a cup of tea in my quiet spot (not easy with a toddler). Last week it happened 4 days in a row, this week, just Tuesday and now today…
