Unable to visit his cousins as planned, Mr. Collins invites them to stay at his parsonage the following spring. The Bennets go to Kent expecting a foolish Mr. Collins and an overbearing Lady Catherine de Bourgh. While one is as they expect, the other is surprisingly amiable.
When Mr. Darcy and his cousin, Colonel Fitzwilliam, visit Lady Catherine at the same time, they each begin to focus on a Bennet sister, prodded by well-meaning relations, but spurred on by their own feelings.
But though Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth quickly begin to fall in love, there are other elements of both families who are determined to interfere . . . .
Chaos Comes to Kent is a short novel of 75,000 words.
