And sequel to 2013 Silver Medal Benjamin Franklin Award Finalist for Best New Voice with the IBPA Echoes of Pemberley
From one of Derbyshire, England’s oldest, most prominent families, heiress Catherine Darcy is beautiful, rich, and seemingly destined to the legacy of her Regency-era ancestors. Determined to follow her own heart, Catie marries handsome, proud Sean Kelly — the son of an Irish horse farmer.
In this modern-day continuation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, newlyweds Sean and Catie depart London for Savannah, Georgia, where Sean has accepted a yearlong administrative internship. The young couple is hopeful the romantic coastal town will provide neutral ground for their opposite worlds but soon discover the southern city has a social pecking order all its own. Behind Savannah’s veil of Spanish moss, a dying socialite and a mute boy send the Kellys on separate paths of personal awakening while together embarking on a journey of the heart that teaches them the true meaning of their enduring love for each other.
