The Matters at Mansfield : or, the Crawford Affair
Following the birth of their first child, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy are looking forward to enjoying life at Pemberley, but a family crisis draws them away to Mansfield Park. There, the Darcys become ensnared in a complex game of marriage machinations, star-crossed lovers, deceit, mistaken identity, and murder. Once again the Darcys take centre stage as the Regency era's answer to The Thin Man's Nick and Nora in this delightful series by the 2007 Daphne du Maurier Award winning author of "North by Northanger".
