I love how the author writes about the ups and downs of the Bertram’s family drama so beautifully. The perfect comfort-read when you just want a light story to enthrall you. Review by Elora Canne

Barbara Randell has written another literary masterpiece!
With thoughtful consideration she has drawn comparisons to Jane Austen’s ‘Persuasion.’ Social influence and one’s moral compass may differ from era to era, but human behaviour stays essentially the same. I loved Randell’s take on a modern day ‘Persuasion’ tale.

Darcy's Pride

Manager Darcy Williams meets Beth Phillips among untrained staff in the packing room.
Then they meet outside the office, and spend time together. Darcy finds her attractive, but will never have a romance with an uneducated country girl.
When Beth joins an office meeting in her true capacity, Darcy destroys Beth’s career and her self-confidence. When he discovers his dreadful mistake, he is shattered. He works to repair the relationship, but Beth is cautious. Then serious danger leads to a shared future.

I enjoyed reading this retelling in which Darcy and Elizabeth have different type of struggles. I enjoyed how realistic each character was. I loved how Elizabeth stepped up to help everyone. I really enjoyed how Darcy conquered his fears. Highly recommend for all to read. Review by Kindle Customer
