The novel is one of the finest masterpieces with the fun and witty element in it. The portrayal of the characters is superb. As every character has its own importance, explained and pulled through the story very well. The story is about the family with their five amazing and beautiful daughters with highly different emotions. If one is emotional the other is realistic. One is sarcastic, the other is optimistic. The mother who was less social and worry for her daughters' marriages. She was worried for her daughters because she wanted them to get married to the men of good status and have wealth, as every mother wants. The artistic piece covers the different relationships, all the girls go through, the time when they fall in love and get married to the person they have loved. It is all about the liking of one sister and but a proposal to the second sister and the way she accepts. The story is full of emotional bondings, relationships the way they get altered, take a different shape, take a different turn. The novel is a complete package elaborating the love, passion, emotions, the sisterly love and the love of life.
