Hertfordshire 1813. Mrs Bennet is facing a whole lot of problems: five unmarried daughters, no money to give them when they get married, and a husband who only has a passing interest in her worries. If only she could catch her new – and rich! – neighbour, Mr Bingley, for one of her girls! If only daughter Elizabeth hadn’t acted on her prejudices and convinced Bingley’s proud friend Darcy (who is even richer!) that she is not good enough for him! And if only the rest of the Bennet girls weren’t so bookish, so silly or so easily influenced by unworthy men! She can only hope that in the end love will conquer all.

Young Canadian Carla grew up believing her parents died in a car crash. Only recently has she learned the truth: her mother, Caroline, died in an English prison, convicted of murdering Carla’s father, famous painter and womanizer Amyas Crale. 16 years after the deed, Carla sets out to reconstruct the events that led to murder, intent on proving her mother’s innocence. Can she prove there’s a murderer on the loose? If Caroline Crale didn’t kill Amyas, who amongst his friends did?

It is 1885, during the Serbo-Bulgarian war. Wealthy young Raina Petkoff impatiently awaits the return of her fiancé Sergius Saranoff, hero of the recent Bulgarian victory over the Serbs. But her head is turned by the arrival of Bluntschli, a Swiss mercenary fighting for Serbia, who hides in her bedroom after the battle and unheroically prefers chocolate to bullets. Meanwhile Sergius flirts with Louka, the Petkoff’s bold and ambitious servant girl, much to the disapproval of her fiancé, the faithful servant Nicola. Will Raina follow her parents’ wishes and settle for Sergius and the status quo or choose her “chocolate cream soldier”?
