It is a truth universally acknowledged, that there once lived a playwright named William Shakespeare. What is not universally acknowledged is that he was deeply attached... to a woman named Elizabeth Bennet. London, England, in 1599 and the playwrights of Elizabethan theatre are in competition always as the Globe Theatre opens to the excitement of all just as Fitzwilliam Darcy arrives from London with his cousin, Richard Fitzwilliam. In a desire to settle down and establish himself in England, he is desirous of finding a residency, and the last thing he wishes is to make a foolish match and least of all to become enamored with a lowly commoner. Unknown to him is that in town, there is a woman named Elizabeth Bennet, a lowly commoner who financially supports her family. One of five very independent sisters, Elizabeth is determined to always make ends meet, while also not being afraid to bend the rules of society in being friends with an Elizabethan playwright named William Shakespeare. Yet when her affluent friend, Charlotte Lucas, wishes Elizabeth to attend a ball with her, Elizabeth dresses above her station to go, and there meets Fitzwilliam Darcy , a man who would change her life forever. Follow the reimagining of Pride and Prejudice as Elizabeth Bennet is torn between a happily ever after that she may not be able to possess, and her comfortable life with William Shakespeare, the man who would become a legend.
