About the Book
In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet’s first impression and hasty judgment of Mr. Darcy, and that gentleman’s pride and aloofness toward her loved ones took them on a long, difficult road to happiness. In “Rainy Days,” Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are caught in a rainstorm two days before the Netherfield ball, and they are forced to spend a few hours alone together where they talk, listen, and better understand each other’s feelings. However, even when original pride and prejudice are overcome, new obstacles arise. The road to true love is never smooth, and surprises along the way enhance the passion of the journey.
