When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Mr Darcy, she finds him proud and aloof. He also seems indifferent to her, despite her good looks and vivacious wit. And when she discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, Elizabeth is determined to dislike him more than ever.
But what are Darcy's motives? Is he, in fact, more interested in the lively young woman than he realizes? Or will the embarrassing behaviour of her family deter him from ever admitting his feelings?
As misunderstandings grow, scandal breaks out and romance blossoms, both Elizabeth and Darcy come to understand the folly of their prejudices and learn that first impressions may not always be reliable.
