Pride and Prescience

Серия: "-"

Pride and Prescience embroils the joyous newlyweds from Pride&Prejudice in a mystery involving one of their wedding guests, the lovely Caroline Bingley, who is engaged to marry a rich and charismatic American. Unfortunately this windswept courtship is marred by many strange events such as nocturnal wanderings, spooked horses, carriage accidents, and even an apparent suicide attempt. Soon the whole Bingley family seems to be the target of a sinister plot, with only the Darcys recognizing the danger. The Austen genre of regency romances mixes with the gothic unearthly threats of Radcliffe and the Brontes where sinister forces are afoot and the Darcys must get to the bottom before the blushing bride descends into madness or worse.
