Once in Love with Lizzy – Margaret Lynette Sharp

Conspicuous attentions accorded Lizzy at a dance by a certain Mr Hughes inspire Mrs Bennet to conceive hopes and even schemes that inspire strong reactions, both in her daughter and in her husband. Lizzy is fearful of confronting her father, not knowing what his own predisposition towards Mr Hughes might be. Whether her trepidation is warranted is a matter left for the reader to discover.
