Why does spirited, lively Elizabeth Bennet so rudely reject the proposal of the handsome,rich Mr.Darcy? What could he possible have done to offend her?
Elizabeth is proud of her ability to judge others; Me.Darcy is proud of his family name. When their social worlds collide, feelings run high.
Misunderstandings, poor judgement and wicked lies bring danger to the Bennet family. Can broken hearts be mended? Can hurtful words be forgiven? Can the Bennets be drawn back from the brink of disgrace? Will Elizabeth’s prejudice and Darcy’s pride be the ruin of them both?
Jane Austen wrote what she felt; the fiery, sensible, proud Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice was her way of challenging the law of the land that said that women can’t inherit property and the only way for them to live a comfortable respectable life was to marry a rich man.
