Sense and Sensibility
by Jane Austen

with an introduction by Kerry van der Vinne

“I do not attempt to deny,” said Elinor, “that I think very highly of him… that I greatly esteem him… that I like him.”

SISTERS ELINOR AND MARIANNE DASHWOOD have lost their father and their home. Now living in reduced circumstances, each sister hopes for love in newly discovered acquaintances; but while Elinor is guided by prudence, Marianne is ruled by passion. Through a series of disappointments, the sisters learn to value one another more deeply, and come to see the benefits of propriety, and of giving their love to men of good character.

JANE AUSTEN (best known for writing Pride and Prejudice) continues to delight readers with her witty and perceptive take on the role of women and class in late eighteenth century British society. In recent years her novels have been adapted and reinterpreted for film and television many times.
