Pride & Prejudice re-imagined during and after the Civil War. Beth Bennett is a Yankee farmer's daughter, moved to Texas with her family after the war. Will Darcy owns Pemberley Ranch, and fought for his state and country in the war. Beth believes she knows what kind of people Southern land owners were, and the handsome and charming carpetbagger George Whitehead confirms her beliefs.
However, loyalty and the war are more complex issues than Beth realizes, with both sides of the fighting having committed horrors and suffered losses.
Some names are slightly changed, and the characters are transformed into versions of themselves fitting the time and place. But there's still much that fans of the original will recognize and love.
