Mistaken Blurb


Fitzwilliam Darcy is a single man in possession of a good fortune, a broken heart, and tattered pride. Elizabeth Bennet is a young lady in possession of a superior wit, flawed judgement, and a growing list of unwanted suitors. With a tempestuous acquaintance, the merciless censure of each other’s character, and the unenviable distinction of a failed proposal behind them, they have parted ways on seemingly irreparable terms. Despairing of a felicitous resolution for themselves, they both attend with great energy to rekindling the courtship between Darcy’s friend Mr. Bingley and Elizabeth’s sister Jane.

Regrettably, people are predisposed to mistake one another, and rarely can two be so conveniently manoeuvred into love without some manner of misunderstanding arising. Jane, crossed in love once already, is wary of Bingley’s renewed attentions. Mistaking her guardedness for indifference, Bingley is drawn to Elizabeth’s livelier company; rapidly, the defects in their own characters become the least of the impediments to Darcy and Elizabeth’s happiness.

Debut author Jessie Lewis’s Mistaken invites us to laugh along with Elizabeth Bennet at the follies, nonsense, whims, and inconsistencies of characters both familiar and new in this witty and romantic take on Jane Austen’s beloved Pride and Prejudice.

    1. Thanks Elin! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. It’s nice to finally have it out in the big wide word for people to read. Really appreciate you dropping in to let me know you liked it.


  1. Hi Jessie, I’ve just left a 5 star review for your book on Amazon Australia. I LOVED your book! So incredibly funny and romantic. I’ve lost count of how many P&P vagaries I’ve read and this has to be one of my all time favourites. The way you portrayed the repartee and intimate moments of Lizzy and Darcy’s relationship was perfection. I also really like the portrayal of Jane and Bingley’s escapades. I’ve always found their characters a bit insipid, so their misadventures were a lot of fun to read. I can’t wait to read your next book, whatever that may be!

    1. Thank you so much, Katie! It curls my toes to know you enjoyed it! It’s also great to hear that you enjoyed the challenges I put before Jane and Bingley. Not everybody likes to see those two tampered with, but I agree with you – it’s fun to test out ‘perfect’ characters to see what they’ll do when pushed. Thanks so much for your kind words 🙂
