However, with the economy spiraling downward, Kate’s life follows: she loses her job, her grandmother falls ill and her family is forced to sell their home. Kate must now scramble for freelance assignments to earn money, and one allows her to test a well-known Austen theory – that when the going gets tough, a woman must marry well to survive.

Will she choose Mr. Rich or Mr. Right?
