Description

Jane Austen wrote the original draft of `Sense and Sensibility` around 1795 at the age of 19, and published it in 1811. This classic tale takes place in southwest England and follows the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, who are reduced to meager means when their father passes and entrusts his fortune to their half brother, John. Sensible, restrained Elinor seems to have found a kindred spirit in Edward Ferrars, while the impetuous, romantic Marianne falls hard for the dashing Willoughby. But each man has a secret that may destroy the relationship. Will the sisters find happiness--or betrayal? Now available as part of the Word Cloud Classics series, `Sense and Sensibility,` a story of love, romance, and heartache, is a must-have addition to the libraries of all classic literature lovers.
