When Elizabeth Bennett marries the brooding, passionate Mr.Darcy, she is thrown into the exciting world of London society. She makes a powerful friend in the Marchioness of Englebury but the jealousy among her ladyship's circle threatens to destroy her happiness. Elizabeth is drawn into a powerful clique for whom intrigue is the stuff of life and rivalry the motive. Her success, it seems, can only be at the expense of good relations with her husband...Other favourite 'Pride and Prejudice' characters are not forgotten. Georgiana Darcy and Kitty Bennett pursue happiness, each in their own way, while others have adventures too, often with hilarious results. This witty and entertaining novel is full of sardonic humour and beautifully told in the language of the era. Bringing Regency society vividly to life, Helen Halstead carries forward Austen's theme of the necessity for her heroes to grow within, in order to achieve lasting happiness!
