After last year's hectic Christmas, the very shy Georgiana Darcy looks forward to a holiday of peace and quiet at home with Darcy and Elizabeth. But when Pemberley's rector cruelly and publicly censures a young girl for losing her virtue, Georgiana feels anything but peaceful.
Struck by the unfair difference in how the world treats her and Hannah Brown for nearly the same mistake, Georgiana takes the disgraced girl under her wing, and though this incurs her brother's wrath, she refuses to stand down.
Everyone is shocked when Georgiana receives support from Mr. Drake Midwinter--the dashing young visiting curate at Lambton Church who happens to be the nephew of Pemberley's rector. Civil war erupts at the edge of Christmas, with uncle versus nephew, brother versus sister, Lambton versus Pemberley... and even Darcy versus Elizabeth!
What havoc Georgiana has wrought--and all because of her affectionate heart.
