A Pride and Prejudice variation set primarily in Derbyshire, this Regency-era romance explores how the destiny of Jane Austen’s characters will be fulfilled even when all of the odds are stacked against them.
After a mysterious accident leads to their father’s death, the future for the Bennet girls seems bleak. Elizabeth Bennet finds work in Ramsgate, and one blustery morning, chance brings her together with Georgiana Darcy, a young, wealthy, orphaned girl. When Elizabeth saves her new friend from ruin, she sets off a course of events that alters not only her own life, but the lives of those she cherishes.
Fitzwilliam Darcy was looking for a wife, not love. He had everything he needed to be happy. A wife would provide him with an heir, and if he was lucky, she would not interfere too greatly in his life. Then, fate put Elizabeth Bennet in his path - destroying his tranquility. Now, in addition to trying to find a bride, he must deal with a stubborn, impertinent troublemaker who doesn’t seem to understand her place.
Will Elizabeth destroy his chance at happiness, or will she be the making of it?
