In the next chapter he is a teenager, already a delinquent, in a world transformed by battles over resources, taking his grandparents for a Sunday drive and teaching them how to steal.

After a visit from the young Dr. Geraghty, she becomes enchanted with by the possibility of change, running away from home to a new life with her wealthy relatives in Dublin.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Her early determination to dislike Mr Darcy, who is quite the most handsome and eligible bachelor in the whole of English literature, is a misjudgement only matched in folly by Darcy's arrogant pride. Their first impressions give way to truer feelings in a comedy profoundly concerned with happiness and how it might be achieved.

In her youth, she broke off an engagement to penniless Captain Wentworth at the insistence of her friend Lady Russell, acquiescing to the demands of her class at the expense of her happiness.
