Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice.
When Charles Bingley, a young but wealthy nobleman, moves into a nearby estate, it is cause for much excitement, especially for the Bennet family (with five unmarried daughters). Charles takes an immediate liking to the oldest daughter, Jane, but the true romance and story revolves around the headstrong second daughter, Elizabeth. Charles’s friend Mr. Darcy finds himself gradually enticed by Elizabeth’s wit and charm (though the two are initially cold and unreceptive towards each other). Perhaps the most famous of Jane Austen’s novels, Pride and Prejudice provides an entertaining look into 19th century English country life and into one of literature’s most famous courtships.
