Pride & Prejudice meets Downton Abbey

Darcy's Hope ~ Beauty from Ashes,

A WW1 Pride & Prejudice Variation

Heartbroken. Devastated.


WW1 Captain Fitzwilliam Darcy was rejected by the woman he loved and left grief-stricken over the loss of his men. “Enough!” Darcy vows, “No more sentimental entanglements. No comrades, no dog, and certainly no woman!”


But a covert assignment at a chateau-turned-field-hospital brings him face to face with his beloved Elizabeth—who's working with a dashing American doctor and embroiled in the conspiracy he's been sent to investigate.


Working side by side with her, Darcy is forced to examine his heart and grapple with his feelings for her while searching for the traitors.


When a near-miracle shatters the ice encasing his heart, he can only think of winning Elizabeth back. Can he prove her innocence and build a lasting bridge with her before she's condemned to a traitor's noose?


Darcy can only hope...
