The couple has known each other for years and quickly come to realize their love for each other. However, not everyone is happy with the marriage, and trouble comes quickly upon them. Dealing with jealous ladies and scornful gentlemen in London as well as illness and injury at Pemberley, they grow together as a couple while Elizabeth regains the confidence she has lost.

At the same time, events in Meryton are creating much-needed occupation for Mrs. Bennet and a quandary for Lydia Bennet’s girlhood companion Pen Harrington; and the former Caroline Bingley is given — perhaps — an opportunity to re- make some of her disastrous choices.

‘His comment made Elizabeth wonder if William only wished to share a bed with her when he could be intimate with her – and some of her mother’s unhelpful words on the subject of marital relations crowded her mind. The thought made her flick her eyes across to William, but she hastily looked away again when she realised that his gaze was fixed upon her face. She remembered her mother had said that a husband would only come to his wife’s bed to engage in marital relations, and she wondered with dismay if that was all William wanted when he was so tender with her. She had enjoyed the closeness that they had shared on their wedding night, feeling that their discovery of one another had been more than an exploration of one another’s bodies, but also a growing understanding of one another and a union of their souls.’
