About Beth Massey
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Beth Massey lives in Chicago with her husband of forty plus years. Her first love as a child was the theatre. A voracious reader, she devoured plays and novels with an eye toward imagining how she would play certain characters. Beth was recruited to the Chattanooga Little Theatre's youth troupe at age eight. At Barnard College in NYC, Beth threw herself into the struggle against war, racism, the emerging women's liberation movement and the Columbia University student strike of 1968. While there, she met her husband Bill. Together they have devoted their lives to political activism.
Now that both are retired from their day jobs, Ms Massey spends her days in the company of her well-informed best friend and the two are free to engage in a great deal of conversation. Jane Austen would approve, and Beth is quite certain that like Dawsey and Juliet they have had a discussion that encompassed Jonathan Swift, pigs and the Nuremberg trials.
Beth may have left a life in the theatre behind, but the desire for a creative outlet and a need to sketch the human character is still fervent.

Five years later, their folly once again becomes something Lizzy fears will endanger her family’s reputation and security.

When she sees him riding like the wind across a meadow at Netherfield, her recognition is immediate. Her first thought is why he has chosen to break their agreement? Has he come to expose her? Her determination to protect her dearest relations from his vile accusations becomes her mission. Still, the memories of their month in Scotland confuse her actions with unnecessary questions. Number one, why had the man she had believed to be the ideal gentleman, who vowed his love before God, rejected her?
It appears all misunderstandings are resolved between the two with a betrothal—or are they?
