North by Northanger or, the Shades of Pemberley
After the intrigues and excitements of their time in the city, the Darcys are more than prepared for a bit of peace and quiet at Pemberley. Finally, they can spend time together as Elizabeth settles into her pregnancy. However, serene solitude is not meant to be. First a mysterious letter from Lady Anne Fitzwilliam Darcy, long deceased, is discovered. Then a summons to Northanger Abbey involves the young couple in intrigues that threaten not just the Darcy legacy and good name, but Mr. Darcy's freedom as well. And to make matters even more uncomfortable for the expectant mother, Darcy's overbearing aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, arrives to further bedevil Elizabeth. Add to this rumours of treasure and past scandals, and it becomes obvious that peacefulness is not at home in Pemberley. Secrets and spirits of the past are, and their revelations may have a most chilling effect on both the Darcys and their family to come.
