SENSE AND SENSIBILITY
COMPLETE AND UNABRIDGED
Unfairly deprived of their family inheritance by
the grasping Mrs John Dashwood and her husband,
Elinor and Marianne Dashwood and their mother
find themselves in greatly reduced circumstances.
Compelled to leave Norland in Sussex for Barton
Cottage in Devonshire, the two sisters are soon
accepted into their new society. Marianne, whose
Sweet radiance and open nature charm the roguish
John Willoughby, is soon deeply in love. Elinor,
whose disposition is more cautious and considered.
who carefully conceals her emotions, is suffering the
loss of Edward Ferrars whom she has left behind.
Despite their very different personalities, both sisters
experience great sorrows in their affairs of the heart:
Marianne demonstrably wretched and Elinor allowing
no one to see her private heartache. It is, however,
the qualities common to them both - discernment,
constancy and integrity in the face of the fecklessness
of others - that allow them entry into a new life of
peace and contentment.
