THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

‘This is Pride and Prejudice 2.0 and I must confess, I liked it more than the original’ STYLIST

‘Bold and brilliant’ GLAMOUR

'Sheer joy… Giddy and glam and a hearty update of Pride and Prejudice’ JESSIE BURTON, author of The Miniaturist

Liz and Jane Bennet 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, to tidy up the crumbling Tudor-style family home, and to wrench their three sisters from their various states of arrested development.

Once they are under the same roof, old patterns return fast. Soon they are being berated for their single status – and for two successful women in their late thirties, 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 . . .

In this dazzling, heart-warming read, the much-loved classic Pride and Prejudice is catapulted into our modern world, singing out with hilarity and truth.
