Explores Austens adage that general incivility is at loves essence. Sylvias husband dumps her for another woman, so Bernadette and Jocelyn organize a book club to distract her. They recruit Sylvias daughter Allegra; Prudie, a young teacher whose marriage may be on the rocks; and Grigg, a sci-fi fan who joins out of attraction to Jocelyn. The six read and discuss one Austen novel per month. Jocelyn tries to interest Grigg in Sylvia; Allegra falls in love with a woman she meets skydiving; Prudie contemplates an affair with a student; Sylvias ex keeps popping up. In the discussions, characters reveal themselves in their comments. By the end, are truths universally acknowledged?
