Mary Bennet returns from the Continent pregnant by an Italian student promised to the church; Darcy and Elizabeth travel to find the father, and discover previously unkwn - and shocking - Darcy relations. By the time Darcy discovers that there's more than one sibling of questionable birth in the family, the ever-dastardly Wickham arrives on the scene to try to seize the Darcy fortune once and for all. First book in the trilogy was The Darcys & the Bingleys - presenting an intriguing view of Miss Caroline Bingley, who has such good reasons for being a way she is that the reader can't help but hold her in charity.
