September's book, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen begins with"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."
Mrs. Bennet has five daughters and a big problem: none of them are
married, there isn't much fortune to go around, and—thanks to a quirk of
English property law—they'll all be kicked out of their house when Mr.
Bennet dies. Enter Mr. Bingley, a rich, single man who moves into their
neighborhood and takes a liking to the eldest Miss Bennet, Jane.
