    Enter into a world of dances and meaningful glances, where marriage may be a woman’s only hope for security and happiness, and one social misstep can doom her reputation forever. Faced with the loss of their land and income, Elizabeth Bennet’s mother is desperate to secure husbands for her daughters at any cost. When Lizzy is introduced to Mr. Darcy at a local dance, tempers flare as her independent spirit clashes with his ingrained arrogance. Can the headstrong rivals overcome their pride and prejudice to get beyond subtle snubs and deceit to uncover the truth about their family, friends and themselves – and make the best match of all? A witty, sparkling, fast-paced adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel.
