When reality becomes dreams…

The universe shakes on Midsummer’s Day in 1801 when the Bennet Wardrobe again opens its doors to the future. This time the most impertinent Bennet of them all, ten-year-old Elizabeth, tumbles through the gateway.

What questions can a child have that only the Wardrobe can answer? Or is it another Bennet, one who has aged into a beautiful and confident leader of Edwardian Society, who acts as the prime mover behind Lizzy’s journey? How does the enigmatic Lady Kate shape Lizzy’s destiny and that of the other Bennet sisters?

Perhaps the Wardrobe knows that Lizzy’s time in the future is destined to become the stuff of adult dreams—those mirages that rise only when the doors to the mind are most open, at the edges of sleep.

After Lizzy is transported back Home to that innocent day in June 1801, Lizzy Bennet Meets the Countess carries readers forward to the greatest writers’ workshop in history. ’Twas at the legendary Villa Diodati that Lord Byron gathers Mary Godwin and Percy Bysshe Shelley for a vacation during the “year with no summer,” 1816. In the Wardrobe universe, the Darcys of Derbyshire also are present as vague recollections are transformed into timeless fiction.
