(From the publisher):
What's a Girl to Do?
Scatterbrained, social climbing Mrs. Bennet makes one demand of her five daughters.
Marry. Marry well. Marry RICH.
But sweet Jane is hopelessly in love with Mr. Bingley, who doesn't seem to notice. Flightly Lydia wants a man -- any man -- preferably one in uniform. Kitty just wants to have fun. Shy Mary has her nose in a book. And Elizabeth -- brilliant, stubborn, independent Lizzy -- refuses the advances of the most "marriageable" man in town -- haughty, handsome, wealthy Mr. Darcy.
Mrs. Bennet's in hysterics, Mr. Bennet's in his study, Lydia's eloped with a soldier and Jane's heart may well be broken. Will any of the Bennet girls find true love and fortune?
