The Bennet sisters have been summoned from New York City.

Liz and Jane are good daughters.  They've come home to suburban Cincinnati to get their mother to stop feeding their father steak as he recovers from heart surgery.

With five sisters under the same roof, old patterns return fast.  Soon enough they are being berated for their single status and it really is too much to bear.  That is, until the Lucas family's BBQ throws them in the way of some eligible single men...

Chip Bingley is not only a charming doctor, he's a reality TV star too.  But Chip's friend, haughty neurosurgeon Fitzwilliam Darcy, can barely stomach Cincinnati or its inhabitants.  As Liz is consumed by her father's medical bills, her wayward sisters and Cousin Willie trying to stick his tongue down her throat, it isn't only the local chilli that will leave a bad aftertaste.  But where there are hearts that beat and mothers that push, the mysterious course of love will resolve itself in the most entertaining and unlikely of ways.

From the hand of Curtis Sittenfeld, Pride & Prejudice is catapulted into our modern world singing out with hilarity and truth.
