When Marianne Dashwood falls in love with the unsuitable John Willougby, she ignores her sister Elinor's warning that her impulsive behaviour leaves her open to gossip and innuendo. Through their parallel experience of love, the sisters learn that sense must mix with sensibility if they are to find personal happiness.
What the papers say:
" As nearly flawless as any fiction could be."

Jane Austen (1775-1817) was extremely modest about her own genius but has become one of English literature's most famous women writers. She is also the author of Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Persuasion, and Northanger Abbey.
