Overview

"This will not do," said Elizabeth. "You never will be able to make both of them good...Take your choice, but you must be satisfied with only one. There is but such a quantity of merit between them; just enough to make one good sort of man..." -Pride and Prejudice From her youngest days, Elizabeth Bennet's ability to accurately judge the character of others has been recognized and noted by those around her in such a consistent manner as to lead her to believe it herself. The misfortune of meeting Mr. Darcy, a wealthy landowner from the north, only solidifies this belief.The memory of his disapproval of her family, proves his character is lacking and sadly unlike his childhood friend's, the charming and affable Mr. Wickham, who is esteemed by all he meets. Although her opinion once lost is not lost forever, the effort to regain her favor is great. With Elizabeth's youngest sister fortunate to be in company with Mr. Wickham in Brighton since the spring, and her own travels to Kent cancelled, she must await the pleasures of a summer holiday to the North with her aunt and uncle Gardiner. However, it is there that she is once again thrust into Mr. Darcy's presence and must determine if he is truly the architect of the many wrongs she has laid at his door.Fitzwilliam Darcy cannot exorcise Elizabeth Bennet from his thoughts. A chance meeting at the estate of his friend reignites all the flames he has attempted to suppress since their last meeting. Believing in her partiality, he is stunned to overhear her true estimation of him and is determined to change her opinion.Battling with memories and secrets from his past, Darcy must fight against his natural reserve to win the heart of the woman he loves.Will the unexpected appearance of a stranger encourage Elizabeth's change of heart? Might an episode from Mr. Darcy's past force Elizabeth to see the man within? Can one man have all the goodness and the other only the appearance of it? Join us for another sweet "Pride and Prejudice" reimagining, suitable for ages teen and up.

About the Author

I have a degree in English with a concentration in British Literature and a Masters in Education. I love to travel, bake, and watch college football with my husband of 17 years and 3 rambunctious sons. My goal in life is to make not only my children, but also my students feel that they are loved, and to bring magic into everyone's world. My weaknesses are yellow cake with chocolate frosting, French bread with real butter, and my father's Arabic food, namely grape leaves, and falafel. I live in California where I dream of Disney adventures and trips across the pond.
