Six people – five women and a man – meet once a month in
California’s Central Valley to discuss Jane Austen’s novels. They
are ordinary people, neither happy nor unhappy, but each of them is
wounded in different ways, they are all mixed up about their lives
and relationships. Over the six months they meet, marriages are
tested, affairs begin, unsuitable arrangements become suitable –
under the guiding eye of Jane Austen a couple of them even fall in
love… 'A thoroughly delightful comedy of contemporary manners'
