Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice by Janet Munsil
Mr and Mrs Bennett and their five daughters live in the country, where opportunities to meet potential suitors are limited. When two very wealthy young bachelors arrive in the neighbourhood, Mrs Bennett expects that they will naturally wish to mary two of her girls, saving the family from certain financial ruin. As fortune would have it, the charming Mr Bingley is instantly smitten with Jane Bennett, the eldest; while his rich, dashing, but snobbish friend Mr Darcy only gradually warms to the bitingly witty charms of her sister Lizzie, who openly mocks and rejects him. Circumstance, family dynamics, and misunderstandings complicate Lizzie's life but through her trials she ultimately recognizes her own prejudices towards, and growing affection for, the mysterious Mr Darcy.
