Summary

A tender Mr. Darcy... A vulnerable Elizabeth Bennet

Elizabeth Bennet is in dire straits. Desperate for guidance, she hides her identity as a female before appealing to a knowledgeable and highly recommended gentleman from Derbyshire for advice.

Fitzwilliam Darcy is pleased to aid the young man from Hertfordshire. E.R. Bennet asked reasonable questions in a well-crafted letter. Traveling to the area to stay with a friend, Darcy is eager to make the acquaintance of the despondent landowner

.Neither Miss Elizabeth Bennet nor Mr. Darcy is what the other expected. Both are offended and angry. Can they find their way through rough challenges to achieve their happily ever after? Of course they can, this is Mr. Darcy and his Elizabeth.

Field of Dreams is a Regency variation of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice that is appropriate for all listeners.

3.5 stars

This is a nice Jane Austen Fan Fiction (JAFF) alternative story. It built a lot more regard between the couple than many other books in this genre. It had less drama than some, and less villains or misunderstandings, and the focus was on the building relationship instead which worked well.

This story was the bomb for Steve Zimmerman to narrate

Great story great premise! Again love the friends to lovers trope. This is so cute to see Lizzie not become super Lizzie but slowly learn how to be such a capable woman after her father‘s death. Steve Zimmerman I have so many good things yet words fail me on how much I appreciate that you have perfected your Lizzie, Darcy, and the rest of the gang. You are my one and only narrator and honestly if I had unlimited amount of money I would make you narrate all the Pride and Prejudice variations on kindle unlimited. If you have a bottomless pit of pride and prejudice variation cravings; use your credit this one was definitely worth it

Such a beautiful variation!

Darcy and Elizabeth at their finest! Only wish it had been twice as long.
Stevie Zimmerman was an excellent narrator as always! This story focused on Darcy and Elizabeth although many of the other characters were present. I highly recommend this book.

Wonderful!!

Okay, full disclosure, I love JAFF, I’m a fan of J. Dawn King and a total FAN GIRL of Stevie Zimmerman, so choosing this book to add to my library was like choosing between chocolate and even richer chocolate 🤣

It was well worth the credit, or “calories” in this analogy, and it’s been added to my Favorites List.

Emotional

Having read the book first, I was sure to have my tissues ready while listening to this emotionally-charged story, and knowing Stevie Zimmerman would do it justice with a fine performance. I wasn’t disappointed.

The writing is exceptional and captures your immediate attention with the opening lines of E.R. Bennet’s first letter to Fitzwilliam Darcy. With knowledge of his good reputation from her Aunt Gardiner, Elizabeth has written to him for advice on how to improve Longbourn’s profits, as her father is declining after suffering an apoplexy. She intentionally hides her true gender to maintain propriety and protect her reputation. Darcy responds, believing he is writing to a young man.

The scenes between Elizabeth and Mr. Bennet as they face his death are especially moving. So too is the setting for Darcy’s proposal—truly unique, to my knowledge. Elizabeth’s recollections about her father’s “field of dreams” and her and Darcy’s expressions about the land truly got to me.

While there is some involvement of other familiar characters such as Wickham and Caroline, the story isn’t bogged down by them or unnecessary filler. The focus is primarily on Elizabeth’s efforts to protect her family and Longbourn from unhelpful, greedy relations and neighbours, and her relationship with Darcy as he provides advice and aid at right times.

This one is/will be memorable and I can’t recommend it enough. Do read and listen to it!

Among the Best

I really enjoyed this book. Its scope is limited, but that in no way diminishes the enjoyment this book brings. I thought the writing was exceptional, as was the storyline, and I would have happily kept reading through a few more decades.
