In this Pride and Prejudice Novella Variation, Elizabeth Bennet is introduced to Fitzwilliam Darcy through her sister, Mary, who is friends with Darcy’s sister. They make an immediate connection and a courtship follows. When Darcy proposes, Elizabeth is eager to accept him.
Darcy escorts his betrothed to her home estate of Longbourn, which happens to be next door to Darcy’s friend’s leased home of Netherfield. Two people from Darcy’s life—his aunt and his former friend—appear in the area, determined to step between the couple, but Darcy puts them in their places and they go on their way.
One of those people, however, is out for revenge, and plans to use Elizabeth to hurt Darcy. When she goes missing, Darcy tears the county apart looking for her. Will he find her in time, or will she be lost to him forever?
