With the regiment come to camp in Meryton, many young ladies are pleased. Not all share their enthusiasm. Among them, Mr. Carver, who removes his family from Meryton's savage society. He blames, not on the militia officers, but the Bennet family. The flirtations and boisterous ways of the youngest sisters are too much to be borne. Not even Jane's renowned beauty and charm can make up for them.
Elizabeth denies the allegations at first, but rapidly uncovers the shocking truth. The Carvers are not the only family to cut the Bennets from their acquaintance. Their reputations materially damaged, the family borders on social ruin.
The news is too much for Mrs. Bennet who collapses from the shock. So, Elizabeth and her sisters must manage the estate until she recovers, a task for which none of them is prepared.
Warned by Mr. Pierce, the local curate, that several of the officers have unsavory designs on the local girls, Elizabeth must find a way to honor her father, rein in her sister and salvage the family's reputation, all in the most ladylike way possible.
Given Good Principles, Vol 2. Sequel to Darcy's Decision.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Vol 2 of Maria Grace's Given Good Principles series. A prequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice A single evening spent reading these fascinating 194 pages provided great background on the maturing of Elizabeth Bennet through familial and societal tests and struggles. Perfect development for the woman she will need to be in order to fill the role we're anticipating will be developed in the newly released Vol 3, 'All The Appearance of Good'! I enjoyed the addition of intrigue, country society, and unique insights into the characters of the Bennets - parents and siblings. As Pride and Prejudice prequels, this series of books is a perfect addition to the Pride and Prejudice Bicentenary Challenge for 2013 and a pleasure to have spent my hours in company with some favoured story characters!
