Mr Darcy and the Bingleys - Pride and Prejudice (2005)

Angela Parisi - Menoutis was my guest on January 13rd  (HERE). On that occasion she introduced herself to you,  as well as presented her Austenesque novel , Two Different Worlds: A Dance from Pride and Prejudice.

There was a quiz attached to a book giveaway contest. The question Angela asked was: "In the canon of "Pride and Prejudice", where is there inferred evidence that Darcy, like Caroline Bingley, may have also wished his sister to marry Charles Bingley? To be entered you had to answer that and to  email your guesses to her.  The contest is now over and ... she has finally picked the name of the winner 
among the ones who sent her the correct answer. 

Congratulations to J. June Williams for winning Angela's brilliant version of Pride and Prejudice!

Here are the correct answers:

Pride and Prejudice chapter 21, letter from Caroline to Jane Bennet:

    Georgiana Darcy .... My brother admires her greatly already, he will have frequent opportunity now of seeing her on the most intimate footing, her relations all wish the connection as much as his own, and a sister's partiality is not misleading me, I think, when I call Charles most capable of engaging any woman's heart. With all these circumstances to favour an attachment and nothing to prevent it, am I wrong, my dearest Jane, in indulging the hope of an event which will secure the happiness of so many?

Pride and Prejudice chapter 45, narrator during scene at Pemberley with Bingleys, Darcys, Lizzy Bnnet

    Not a syllable had ever reached her {Caroline} of Miss Darcy's meditated elopement. To no creature had it been revealed, where secresy was possible, except to Elizabeth; andfrom all Bingley's connexions her brother {Darcy} was particularly anxious to conceal it {elopement}, from that very wish which Elizabeth had long ago attributed to him, of their {Bingley's connexions} becoming hereafter her own {becoming Georgiana's connexions}. He had certainly formed such a plan, and without meaning that it should effect his endeavour to separate him from Miss Bennet, it is probable that it might add something to his lively concern for the welfare of his friend.

Thank you, Angela and Maria! The second passage especially makes me think that Darcy invited the Bingleys to Pemberley for the purpose of seeing how Georgiana would handle being in close company with the fawning sisters and Hurst the sot. I hope Georgiana told her brother "NO!"

Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly email this wonderful man {},i f you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back.
