Sense and sensibility: The story of two sisters attempting to find happiness in the tightly structured society of 18th century England.
Emma: Emma Woodhouse is a young woman who finds that it is sometimes all too easy to confuse good intentions with self-gratification.
Mansfield Park: In 18th century England, young, impoverished Fanny Price arrives at the elegant estate of her uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram. Snubbed by everyone except her cousin Edmund, she begins her long struggle for acceptance by her shallow relatives who believe wealth automatically means quality.
Persuasion: Eight years after Anne Elliot turned down Captain Wentworth's proposal of marriage, they meet again. Anne now recognizes the false values that persuaded her to reject Captain Wentworth, but his heart seems set upon the youth and beauty of the impetuous Louisa Musgrove.
Pride and prejudice: The story of lively and rebellious Elizabeth, one of five unmarried daughters living in the countryside of 19th century England, in a world where an advantageous marriage is a woman's sole occupation.
Northanger Abbey: In 19th century Bath, a girl bursting with freshness and passion for macabre Gothic novels experiences intrigue, adventure, and romance, especially when the romantic Henry Tilney invites her to his ancestral home.
