Witty and intelligent, Miss Elizabeth Bennet has vowed that nothing but the deepest love shall tempt her into matrimony, a tenuous prospect for a poor gentlewoman in 19th century England. She rejects an unexpected offer of marriage from wealthy Mr. Darcy, only to realize that he is just the sort of man to whom she might entrust her heart. After sharing the story with her father, Elizabeth returns to London and finds herself unexpectedly in Darcy's company once again. With A Tapestry of Lives, Jean Sims weaves a fresh story around two of Jane Austen's most beloved characters. Set along this new path, will the couple manage to reconcile their differences and plan a life together while enduring the foibles of family, friends, and British high society?
