From Joanna Trollope, one of the most insightful chroniclers of family life writing fiction today, comes a contemporary retelling of Sense snd Sensibility, Jane Austen’s classic novel of love, money, and two very different sisters.John Dashwood promised his dying father that he would take care of his half sisters. But his wife, Fanny, has no desire to share their newly inherited estate. When she descends upon Norland Park, the three Dashwood girls—Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret—are faced with the realities of a cold world and the cruelties of life without their father, their home, or their money.With her sparkling wit, Joanna Trollope casts a clever, satirical eye on the tales of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood.Reimagining Sense and Sensibility in a fresh, modern new light, she spins the novel’s romance, bonnets, and betrothals into a wonderfully witty coming-of-age story about the stuff that really makes the world go around.

I won't spoil how this book ends but I'll talk about actions and events that happened in the original. Austen's Sense and Sensibility (S&S) was the first of her books I ever read...seventeen years ...

3.0
This is less an adaptation than a straightforward updating of Sense and Sensibility. All characters have the same names, act in the same fashion (more or less), and follow a modernized version of almost the exact plot of the original. Although I love adaptations and appreciate it when they are fai...

4.0 Sense & Sensibility (Austen Project)
Twice upon a time, there were three Dashwood sisters, though no one took much notice of the youngest one. Their father died far too young, and they and their mother were forced by their cruel sister-in-law and weak half-brother to leave the home they'd grown up in. _Sense & Sensibility_ -- the first...
