Out of character, out of place, out of time period, Elizabeth Bennet is away from home, away from Hertfordshire in Regency England and retrenched to Deep South antebellum Georgia where she comes to fisticuffs with a new Mr. Darcy by the name of Mr. Thornton, who himself is no longer in the northern English town of Milton.

Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice meets Elizabeth Gaskell’s North & South in THORTON IN MY SIDE.

In the period before the American Civil War broke out, Elizabeth finds herself crossing the line when she has to choose sides. Should she stand with the cotton plantation slaves and abolitionists or should she favor plantation owner Thornton and his fierce mother? Does Elizabeth survive the Civil War but lose the battle for Thornton’s love and affections?

This story reflects the historical elements of 19th century plantation religiosity among the slave owners and their slaves in the Deep South.

The THORNTON IN MY SIDE novelette is the second parody in my JANE AUSTEN UPSIDE DOWN collection.
