Pride and Prejudice
by Jane Austen
The Pride and Prejudice Book Study is available to accompany this book.
The lovely young Bennet sisters, Jane and Elizabeth, are hoping to find their ideal husbands: men to bring them both love and financial security. When rich and handsome Charles Bingley moves into the neighborhood—and his rich and handsome friend Mr. Darcy comes for a visit—the sisters’ prospects look bright. However, while Mr. Bingley is instantly taken with Jane, Mr. Darcy is haughty and clear about his disdain for the Bennet family’s lack of station and decorum. After he rudely snubs Elizabeth at a party, it seems impossible that Elizabeth’s and Mr. Darcy’s first impressions of each other will ever soften into friendship—and certainly never love.
In this timeless classic, Jane Austen masterfully weaves the perfect blend of comedy, drama, and heartwarming family love. With delightful language and unforgettable characters, readers enter the enchanting Regency era where overcoming pride of station and prejudicial opinions of others is surprisingly relatable to today.
