Pride and Prejudice
Why this book?
Pride and Prejudice is the gold standard for clean and wholesome romance with its colorful characters and tasteful handling of difficult and sometimes scandalous choices. While some readers may hesitate to tackle fiction written over two hundred years ago, it is easily read and the many film adaptations are enjoyable. This novel's wit and observation tie in beautifully to the romance and its main character, Lizzie, who must face herself before she can accept what's in her heart.
