A man in possession of ten thousand a year is truly a valuable catch, but how exactly does one maintain an estate the size of Pemberley when he is constantly beset by in-laws that drain his income? In the changing times of the early 1800's even landowners such as Fitzwilliam Darcy must adapt to preserve their inheritance. Tenant farms, once the mainstay of estates, are now abandoned as residents flee to the cities to take advantage of new opportunities, and steam powered machinery takes their place.Technology is growing by leaps and bounds, redefining the world as social classes begin to blend. No longer are titles and land the only way to become a gentleman. How will Pemberley survive the transition? Only the clever minds of Darcy and Elizabeth find a way to balance tradition with innovation, investing in the future.
