A Fair Prospect is a story inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. It is told across three volumes. Volume III, Desperate Measures, is the concluding part.
Reeling from the news of Elizabeth’s engagement to Harington, and desperate to avoid any possible further encounter, as much for the lady’s sake as his own, Darcy seeks distraction, removing to the West Country with his sister and cousin where they prepare to embark on a journey to Dublin. Elizabeth, meanwhile, is struggling with an inexplicable lowness of spirit following the gentleman’s removal from Town. Fate, however, has unfinished business with them both, and before long the lady is travelling to the West Country herself.
As Darcy strives to leave the past behind, will Elizabeth realise where her heart truly lies and, if so, can she find a way of letting Darcy know her feelings have changed, or is it too late for them both?
