Summary: In 1794, two little girls disappear in the midst of a horrific event. The re-emergence of one of the girls some eighteen years later brings happiness to many but will drive a few to acts of desperation.  The young woman raised as Elizabeth Bennet for eighteen years is not whom she believes herself to be. A story of murder, betrayal and reconciliation.

Gioia’s Rec:
This is another of my guilty-pleasure fics in which Elizabeth Bennet is actually a kidnapped heiress related to Darcy. The plot is quite unlike that of P&P, but it’s very entertaining nonetheless.   One thing which sets it apart from others in this sub-genre is that Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth did not meet in Hertfordshire in this fic.
My Only Critique: It drags in spots. But overall it contains a far more mysterious and dramatic plot than any of the other fics in this sub-genre. Also, I can’t figure out why there’s a mature Rating, though, as nothing “steamy” occurred.
