A once-in-a century snowstorm strands Darcy and Bingley in Meryton because the roads to London are impassible. They offer a ride to a curious young Miss Bennet on the way to their inn. Colonel Fitzwilliam blows in as well, and over the course of their first day in residence in the town, the gentlemen meet four more Miss Bennets. The three of them decide to attend the local assembly, assured there are many lovely young ladies to dance with.
But locals reference the Bennet daughters of Longbourn as ‘The Nunnery.’ The three outsiders are not certain if this term is used to mean that the sisters have all taken vows of some sort. Or, is it used euphemistically and do they run a brothel?
Elizabeth Bennet has been a leader and care-taker to her motherless cluster of sisters for many years. She is disconcerted when the weather strands three strange men at the Red Lion Inn. Elizabeth is already flustered by having to deal with her odious cousin, Mr. Collins, who is staying at the inn (because he is not welcome at Longbourn). Elizabeth Bennet finds that she and her sister’s way of life is threatened with these gentlemen all converging on Meryton.
This humorous and light-hearted tale follows Darcy as he grumbles about the weather and wishes to leave; Bingley as he discovers an angel living in town, and old fox, Colonel Fitzwilliam, who believes most people have the wrong idea about the nuns of Longbourn and sets out to reform them.
