Love is in the air when five sisters discover that a wealthy and eligible bachelor is suddenly within reach. But it is his friend, the haughty Mr. Darcy, who becomes smitten.

If the terrible rumors about Mr. Darcy are true, he doesn't stand a chance. Yet not all gossip is to be believed when marriage, money, and reputations are on the line. Will Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy circumvent her haste, his ego, and society's expectations to find love? Written more than two centuries ago, Jane Austen's enduring story of manners, family, and love continues to delight new generations of readers.

When Jim, a young merchant seaman, joins a ship carrying Muslims to Mecca, he's flush with heroic daydreams. But after only a few days aboard, the Patna hits something in the night and begins to take on water. In a crucial moment that tests his courage, Jim cowers and abandons ship rather than risk his life to save the pilgrims. Tried for shameful dereliction of duty, the guilt-ridden Englishman sets forth to make amends for his past in the remote territory of Patusan. As the curious Captain Marlow now attempts to understand Jim's history through various fractured narratives, Jim becomes defined by the memories of others--some true, some invented, and all inescapable. Upending the expectations of nautical fiction, Joseph Conrad created a profound exploration of one's perception of self, of time as both healing and destructive, and of trying to know the unknowable.
