From Chapter One Elizabeth Bennet walked into the parlour at her Aunt Madlyn and Uncle Edmund Gardiner's empty home in London. She and her father had spent the day travelling from their home in Hertfordshire and were now spending the night at the Gardiners' home in Cheapside, where they would both depart early the next morning for the harbour on the River Thames. Elizabeth would board a sailing ship, which would take her from her England homeland to America. Her aunt and uncle were already in America, where they had been these past three months, so this evening they had the house to themselves. Mr. Gardiner's business had taken on additional work that spanned the two countries separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Elizabeth understood only that it involved some importing and exporting details that needed to be worked out on the American side. The Gardiners had expected to remain there between six to nine months. Elizabeth planned to visit them for the remainder of their stay. The Gardiners and their four children had all made the crossing together, taking advantage of this opportunity to see some of the sights in the New World. With her uncle's work taking him to New York, Elizabeth understood that she and her aunt would have sufficient time to tour the area together. When her uncle's work was completed, they would all travel back together to England. Elizabeth's only regret was that her sister, Jane, was not able to join her. She had also been invited, but due to Jane's tendency
