Pride and Power by ThornfieldHall reviews
It was a truth universally denied that a girl with an ailing family, had little wish for a husband. Unfortunately for Margaret Hale it was a truth universally acknowledged that that a single merchant in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. AKA the Jane Austen-esque regency AU no one asked for.

This is a retelling of Gaskell's North and South, but with a twist. At the beginning of our story, when Margaret is propositioned by Henry Lennox, she feels obligated to agree.
