Popular Pride and Prejudice Retellings Books

It is a truth universally acknowledged that only in an overachieving Indian American family can a genius daughter be considered a black sheep.

Here are some of our favorite recent-ish works that bring the tale of Lizzy, Darcy, and the others into a wide variety of different settings. When she meets the handsome Khalid, she surprises herself by being attracted to someone so judgmental. When a surprise engagement is announced between her flighty sister and Khalid, Ayesha is torn between how she feels about the straightforward Khalid and his family; and the truth she realizes about herself. But Khalid is also wrestling with what he believes and what he wants. Replacing the Regency with rural Pennsylvania, and upper-class English culture with that of the Amish, the author covers the same issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage within the Amish community as Austen discussed in her work. In this gender-swapped take we find Darcy Fitzwilliam: 29, beautiful, successful, and brilliant.
