6 Modern Books for Fans of Pride and PrejudiceMaybe it's the setting of the book, all warmly-lit reading rooms and misty walks through lush green landscapes. Whatever it is, I always get the urge to re-read the classic romance during the chillier months. If you're anything like me, you've probably already pulled your well-worn copy from your bookshelf and are preparing for a long night of reading. But, wait! The 11 books below are either direct retellings of the story or books that share the same plots and themes — think relationships across class divides, explorations of family, and hate-to-love slow-burn romances with lots of intense pride and misplaced prejudice.

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.
