What's a girl to do?

Scatterbrained, social climbing Mrs. Bennet makes one demand of her five daughters.

Marry. Marry well. Marry RICH.

But sweet Jane is hopelessly in love with Mr. Bingley, who doesn't seem to notice. Flighty Lydia wants a man--any man--preferably one in uniform. Kitty just wants to have fun. Shy Mary has her nose in a book. And Elizabeth--brilliant, stubborn, independent Lizzy--refuses the advances of the most "marriageable" man in town--haughty, handsome, wealthy Mr. Darcy.

Mrs. Bennet's in hysterics, Mr. Bennet's in his study, Lydia's eloped with a soldier and Jane's heart may well be broken. Will any of the Bennet girls find true love and fortune?

About the Author

Jane Austen was probably the single most unlikely literary figure in the history of the English language. She lived a life so quiet that she made barely a ripple on the surface of the world—until she put pen to paper. The six finished novels that she wrote—Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Persuasion, and Northanger Abbey—are still wildly popular nearly two hundred years after her death. Considered by critics to be some of the finest work produced by any writer anywhere, the books have been printed in countless editions worldwide, translated into twenty-nine languages, converted into plays and films. Jane Austen's home has become a museum that attracts hundreds of thousands of pilgrims from all over the world.
