The story starts when Elizabeth and Maria are staying at the Parsonage at Hunsford. It diverges from canon when Elizabeth receives a package from her father - a copy of the new novel Sense and Sensibility. They start reading it together and this leads to insights into characters and events which had previously been misunderstood. This prevents Darcy making a disastrous proposal in Kent. The pathway is slightly different but they will get their happy ending.
Be aware that there are major plot spoilers for Sense and Sensibility if you have not already read this!
My thanks to Jane Austen for creating such wonderful characters and storylines.
Quotations from Sense and Sensibility are put in italics and page references are from the Wordsworth Classics (1992) edition. Words quoted from Pride and Prejudice are underlined.

Charlotte Collins once said that "Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance," and she believed it with all of her heart. She was lucky enough to have found happiness in Kent, in the form of a wonderful friend and kindred spirit, Miss Anne de Bourgh. It was enough, it had to be. Her life was going to be cut short, after all.
