Pride and Prejudice comes repackaged with a brand new original cover design in this deluxe edition which includes romatic and humorous illustrations by C.E. Brock. Pride and Prejudice is the tale of Elizabeth Bennet and her four sisters, who are struggling to find the elusive path to love and financial security in early 1800s England. Enter haughty, wealthy, handsome but proud Mr. Darcy with his friend Mr. Bingley, and all of their lives will be irrevocably changed. Will pride and prejudice stand in the way of true love? Or will every trial and disaster thrown in their way be simply a means to bring them closer to each other and to an understanding of their own hearts? This is the love story of love stories, laced with humour and wit along with a sharp insight into the truth of human nature and a good dose of romance. It is, above all, a modern book, although written hundreds of years ago, picturing accurately the workings of society, and the intricate relationships between parents and daughters, siblings, friends, enemies and lovers.
