Finding husbands for her five daughters has become Mrs. Bennet’s sole obsession, because the girls will be penniless once Mr. Bennet’s estate goes to his cousin. The problem is that the Bennets don’t always help themselves to suitable matches: Mrs. Bennet and the youngest girls tend to talk instead of think, middle daughter Mary is unexceptional, and Mr. Bennet would rather poke fun than help. That leaves the ever-sarcastic Lizzie and her unassertive older sister Jane to navigate their family around sententious clergymen, judgmental bachelors, dashing soldiers, poisonous women of high society, and an array of dinners and dances and teas.
"Read again, and for the third time at least, Miss Austen's very finely written novel of Pride and Prejudice."
~ Sir Walter Scott
