Summary
Charlotte Collins, née Lucas, is the respectable wife of Hunsford's vicar, and sees to her duties by rote: keeping house, caring for their adorable daughter, visiting parishioners, and patiently tolerating the lectures of her awkward husband and his condescending patroness, Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Intelligent, pragmatic, and anxious to escape the shame of spinsterhood, Charlotte chose this life, an inevitable one so socially acceptable that its quietness threatens to overwhelm her. Then she makes the acquaintance of Mr. Travis, a local farmer and tenant of Lady Catherine. In Mr. Travis' company, Charlotte feels appreciated, heard, and seen. For the first time in her life, Charlotte begins to understand emotional intimacy and its effect on the heart--and how breakable that heart can be. With her sensible nature confronted, and her own future about to take a turn, Charlotte must now question the role of love and passion in a woman's life, and whether they truly matter for a clergyman's wife.

Summary
"As a baby, Anne de Bourgh was prescribed laudanum by her doctor, and now the young woman must take the opium-heavy syrup every day. Growing up confined to her father's mansion, Anne had few companions except her cousins, including Fitzwilliam Darcy, whom she is meant to marry. When her father dies unexpectedly, leaving her his vast fortune, Anne has a shocking moment of clarity. In a frenzy of desperation, Anne discards her laudanum and flees. Gone are her hallucinations and lethargy, now replaced by a keen awareness of her own inexperience in the ways of the word. Anne must forge a new identity for herself, learning to navigate high society and the heartbreak of forbidden love."--Page 4 of cover.
