Not yet rated | write a review
Marianne Dashwood can't understand her sister. How could the attractive, witty, and charming Elinor fall for the quiet, self-effacing, and rather dull Edward Ferrars? And, if the two are in love, why don't they shout it to the world? Meanwhile, Elinor worries that Marianne's all-out, heart-first approach to life will hurt her, especailly when it comes to the dashing, passionate John Willoughby. Ever since Willoughby carried Marianne home after she was injured in a fall, he has become a fixture in the small cottage Elinor and Marianne have recently moved into with their mother and younger sister.
The two sisters spar good-naturedly over the merits of full-blown emotionalism versus reticence and self-discipline in matters of the heart. Fond as they are of each other, each is certain that hers is the only true path to love. Meanwhile, both Edward and Willoughby harbor secrets that will force these women to doubt their philosophies, their judgment, and their chance for happiness.
Beautifully packaged with a 'Life and times of Jane Austen'; an introduction by Jennifer C Garlen, doctorate in eighteenth-century English literature at Auburn University; Endnotes; a 'Based on the Book' section; and a section on further reading.

From the Jacket

"Oh!" cried Marianne, 'with what transporting sensations have I formerly seen them fall! How have I delighted, as I walked, to see them driven in showers about me by the wind! What feelings have they, the season, the air, altogether inspired! Now there is no one to regard them. They are seen only as a nuisance, swept hastily off, and driven as much as possible from the sight."..."It is not every one," said Elinor, "who has your passion for dead leaves."

About the Author

Jane Austen was born in Steventon, Hampshire, England, in 1775. After two decades of experimentation, writing, and extensive revisions, she published her first four novels anonymously between 1811 and 1815. Her two final novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, were published in 1818, the year after her death. She is buried in Winchester Cathedral.
