Elizabeth is visiting Charlotte at the parsonage when they are asked to dinner at Rosings. As hard as she tries, Elizabeth cannot be left at home and is forced to come face to face with the odious Fitzwilliam Darcy. With his angry words still ringing in her ears, Elizabeth braces for an evening of the greatest discomfort. But when Mr. Darcy’s sister Georgiana befriends her, Elizabeth begins to wonder if there is more to Mr. Darcy than his pride.

Georgiana encourages him to make amends in any way he can, but Mr. Darcy suspects there are some friendships that cannot be repaired, no matter how much love he feels for the clever young woman with the very fine eyes.
