In this reimagining of Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy's primary reason for coming to Hertfordshire is not to assist Mr. Bingley; rather, he is finding it difficult to decide between duty and happiness as he considers two women in Kent as prospective brides. But in the midst of gaining distance from his dilemma, he never once considered the possibility that his eye could be caught by someone so much lower than him in consequence as Elizabeth Bennet.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth, who lives a sheltered life in Hertfordshire, is unwilling to fully participate in society and has no desire to find a husband. She has been hurt by love in the past, and she is none too eager to expose herself in such a fashion again.
With other alterations to Austen's novel-such as a more decisive Mr. Bingley and a surprising choice of bride by Mr. Collins-this novel provides something new for Austen enthusiasts to enjoy while still being able to relish in the familiarity of the characters we have all grown to know and love.
