Vicksburg, Mississippi—May 22, 1863
The day was several hot, stifling hours old when the young, gray-clad captain of infantry once again peeked carefully over the ramparts of his position into morning sun, telescope in hand.
The Civil War has been over for some years, but has left deep scars, like the one in the heart of a girl from Ohio, Elizabeth "Beth" Bennet, who still mourns the death of her brother, for which she blames the Confederates. What a shock to her when her father announces that the family will be moving to Texas: right in the middle those nasty Southerners! When she meets William Darcy, the wealthy owner of Pemberley Ranch, she finds easy to instantly hate him, because the man is practically everything she hates most in the world (despite being extremely charming). And Darcy seems to reciprocate the hostility, why otherwise she would find his penetrating gaze always on her, if not to judge and criticize? What other reason could be? :)
