One sister filled with sense, the other with sensibility; Marianne Dashwood has fallen headlong into love with the dashing rake Sir John Willoughby, ignoring Elinor's warnings about her impulsive behaviour. Elinor meanwhile, strives to conceal her romantic disappointments from those around her, leaving her alone in her struggles. Jane Austen's classic tale of romantic society-and the need for a balanced outlook-is just as relevant and charming today as when she first wrote it. 407 pages, softcover, with appendix. Slightly Imperfect.
