Continuing after Words in the Darkness, Echoes at Dawn follows Elizabeth Bennet as she travels to Kent to visit her sister Mary, who has recently married Mr. Collins. There, she meets with a villain who is already known to her, and she is forced to deal with the consequences of a pair of tragic events.
Despite these developments, Elizabeth finds that what troubles her more than anything else is the arrival of Mr. Darcy in Kent. She finds it difficult to reconcile her image of the man whose conversation she enjoys with that of the man she suspects almost ruined her dear sister Jane's happiness forever. Upon being introduced to the rakish James Baker and his flighty sister Elia, Elizabeth's equilibrium is only further disturbed . . . especially since Miss Baker appears to have captured Mr. Darcy's interest.
In the end, Elizabeth must determine the state of her heart and affections if she is ever to find true happiness.
