After the wedding bells have stopped ringing, Darcy and Elizabeth set out on their wedding tour as blissfully happy newlyweds...or so Elizabeth thought. Darcy unexpectedly decides to change the destination of their tour from the Lake District to Europe instead. Although Elizabeth is dazzled by the beauty of Parisian salons, Venician palazzos and even a medeval castle fortress hewn from the rocks of the Alps, she does not quite feel at ease.
