Have you ever wondered what was going on in the rest of the world while Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth were misunderstanding each other?

You’ll never guess what was going on in southern Africa.

Under the mask of wealth and Victorian manners, one young woman has kept an awful secret too long. It causes her father’s death and she escapes on a ship to southern Africa. With only her Victorian upbringing as reference, she will encounter tribal dances, wild animal attacks and one handsome Captain who is the only one who knows her real name.
