"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife." Pride & Prejudice 1813
The arrival of Mr. Bingley, a wealthy, single young man to Netherfield Park and his equally wealthy friend Mr. Darcy, means only one thing to Mrs. Bennet - a possible chance to find a suitable husband for one of her five daughters. In this Jane Austen classic novel we are told the story of the Bennet sisters, particularly the headstrong Elizabeth and her quieter more beautiful elder sister Jane on their way to finding love. A brilliantly written love story where Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy at first show prejudice and pride towards each other before all misunderstandings are resolved. An incisive and witty look at the snobbery and manners of middle-class regency society where the choice of marriage could be determined by either fortune, comfort or love.
