What would you do if you had a brother like Mr Darcy? Overprotective, powerful, and full of pride? In this coming-of-age story, Georgiana joins forces with her lively American cousin, Miss Clarissa Darcy, to challenge the expectations forced upon her. But what starts out as mere playful mischief soon turns serious when Miss Anne de Bourgh suddenly vanishes and the consequences of Georgiana's rebellion become very real indeed...Will she bring scandal to that pillar of tradition, Rosings Park? Will she survive the tangles of jealousy, suspicion and deceit that result? And, after her disastrous affair with Wickham, will she ever be able to find true love? We return once again to the world of "Pride & Prejudice" in this youthful dance through the London Season.
