It is a truth universally acknowledged that a nice Jewish widower must be in want of a wife.

JANE AUSTEN centered her classic novels around "three or four families in a country village." So does Paula Marantz Cohen in this witty twist on Pride and Prejudice -- except this time the "village" is Boca Raton, Florida.

Eligible men are scarce in Boca, and so good-hearted meddler Carol Newman has her work cut out for her to engineer a match between her lonely mother-in-law, May, and the wealthy and personable widower, Norman Grafstein. Even May's sharp-tongued friend Flo approves of Norman -- although Norman's best friend Stan, a cynical professor, keeps getting under Flo's skin.

Will love ultimately conquer both pride and prejudice? Misunderstandings abound in this perceptive, engaging comedy of manners.
