When a noble youth arrives unannounced to request the hand of the matchless Laura, it seems their future is one of contentment and bliss--that is until his family learn of the marriage and, one by one, reject the new bride. So begins the series of unspeakable events that make up Laura's lot in life. But tragedy and comedy here go hand in hand as Austen delivers a stringent satire on drawing-room society, brilliantly heralding her later masterpieces. Author of the timeless works Pride and Prejudice and Emma, Jane Austen (1775-1817) is one of the best-loved novelists of all time.
