Summary Pride and Prejudice: The classic tale of love and values unfold in the class-conscious England of the late eighteenth century. The five Bennet sisters have all been raised by their mother to have one purpose in life: finding a husband. When a wealthy bachelor takes up residence in a nearby mansion, the Bennets are abuzz. Among the man's sophisticated circle of friends, surely there will be no shortage of suitors for the Bennet sisters. But when Elizabeth meets up with the handsome and--it would seem--snobbish Mr. Darcy, the battle of the sexes is joined.
Persuasion: Anne Elliot is a young woman of perfect breeding and unwavering integrity. Anne and Captain Wentworth have a long awaited union. The world of country gentry in Regency England serves as a setting while portraying the many aspects of proper society--its failings and humor.
Emma: The funny and hearwarming story of a young lady whose zeal, snobbishness, and self-satisfaction lead to several errors in judgment. Emma takes Harriet Smith, a pariour boarder and unknown, under her wing and schemes for advancement through a good marriage. The attempts at finding Harriet a suitor occupy all of Emma's time. However, in the midst of the search she settles on a most unlikely union of her own constant critic: Mr. Knightly.
