Hi, I hope I've found the correct thread for this.  I didn't want to clutter your forum and start my own thread.  I didn't see anywhere else to post this, but if it belongs in a different thread, let me know and I'll edit appropriately.  Or, if you think this isn't HF, let me know and I'll move it to another forum.  It seems HF to me, but it's a false history, since it's Jane Austen's characters, would this be romance...?  Anyway, if you have it WL'd. let me know, and have it on AR, and I'll post it to you.  Currently 24 wishers.  It's brand new. 

The Darcy Connection: A Novel :: Elizabeth Aston
ISBN-13: 9781416547259 - ISBN-10: 1416547258

taken, thanks
