It's rare to find crossover stories between Jane Austen's books, but Cass Grafton and Ada Bright have done an excellent job! This story takes place in 1811, the year that Pride and Prejudice is set and a few years before Persuasion is set. Elizabeth Bennet becomes friends with Anne Elliot and is invited to stay at Kellynch. Meanwhile, Mr. Darcy is renting the dower house on the Kellynch estate. During this time, a shipwrecked and delirious Captain Wentworth shows up at Kellynch.
I could easily believe the natural friendship between Anne and Elizabeth. They seem to be perfect kindred spirits. It was also fun to see a different outcome play out for Anne and Wentworth, and a unique twist on the usual patterns for Elizabeth and Darcy. This was a delightful story that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I heartily recommend it to all fans of Jane Austen!
