Sparkling comedy of provincial manners concerns a well-intentioned young heiress and her matchmaking schemes that result in comic confusion for the inhabitants of a 19th-century English village. Droll characterizations of the well-intentioned heroine—one of Austen’s immortal creations—and her hypochondriacal father—plus many other finely drawn personalities. This sparkling satire of provincial life is one of Jane Austen’s finest novels.
