In the Regency Era, four young ladies and their brother grow up with an affectionate mother and a loving father. The youngest, Lucy Palmer, has grown up to the teachings of rising author Jane Austen while the other three sisters are subject to their mother's constant fusing and demands that they marry young, handsome, rich men to lift the family from despair while their brother, their father's heir, spends his time drinking and making rash descisions. When a new arrival comes to the close-knit community of the Derbyshire country side, every mother is competing for the young man's attention for their daughters. Can Lucy and her siblings be free of their mother's desires and marry for affection or will they be forced into indifferent marriages?

This is really good; Jane Austen is one of my favourite authors and I love the regency era, in fact I would love to live in it hehe :p and this is really good.
I'm soo sorry it took me so long to read this! I love it so much though.

@Lula6791 :) Agreed!! The tele-series version of Pride and Prejudice was too flat and black and white for my taste. For once, hollywood actually revived the Jane Austen spirit!
                                      Thanks! :) I'm going to go see a Shakespeare play next weekend so maybe that'll inspire me to write a few more chapters!

I agree with Cowboy_magic this story reminds me of Pride and Prejudice especially the Kiera Knightley version. I hope you'll update soon.
