SYNOPSIS: This charming imagined sequel to Jane Austen’s PRIDE AND PREJUDICE brings the Bennet daughters alive again at a Christmas gathering at Pemberley. Elizabeth, now married to Mr. Darcy and Jane (now expecting a child with Charles) are blissfully happy; Lydia, saddled to the ill-suited Mr. Wickham, denies her unhappiness with her continued flirtations. The awkward middle-sister, Mary, has blossomed into an intelligent, curious young woman and now, with the help of fate and her sisters, she meets her soulmate, Mr. Arthur De Bourgh – until an uninvited guest threatens to spoil everything.
