The story begins as the people of Meryton scurry to marry their daughters off to Charles Bingley, a dashing and eligible bachelor who has taken an estate near the Bennets. At the village's welcoming ball, Elizabeth meets up with a formidable adversary: Bingley's closest friend, the cold, prideful, extremely wealthy Fitzwilliam Darcy who piques her to new heights of antagonism. When Darcy arrogantly urges Bingley to give up his burgeoning courtship of Elizabeth's sister, misunderstanding threatens to bury all he loves in turmoil and regret

Handsome new doctor Frank Harrison has arrived from London; a retired Captain and his daughters move in across the street and preparations for Lady Ludlow's garden party are underway.
