Jane Austen pits her wit and will against her greatest adversary and ally-Elizabeth Bennet. Heady with her first taste of love, Jane aged 20 creates Elizabeth with Mr Darcy taking on the role of her arch enemy and reluctant admirer. But when her actual romance sours, she sentences Elizabeth to marry the odious Mr Collins and herself to an equally disastrous marriage. The fates of the author, the novel and its heroine are at stake. Elizabeth Bennet must take action.
