Five women and one man form a book club to read through the novels of Jane Austen. As they tackle each novel, the stories often reflect the issues and problems in their lives.

Jocelyn is a perpetually alone dog-trainer who invites Gregg to join the book club in order to set him up with Sylvia, but Gregg is more interested in Jocelyn herself. Prudie is a young high school English teacher, in an unhappy marriage with high school sweetheart and feels a dangerous attraction to one of her students. Bernadette is the oldest member of the group, married and divorced multiple times and is the voice of reason and calm in the book club. As each woman deals with their emotional issues, Jane Austen’s novels act as a guide.
