The beloved and bestselling novelist Joanna Trollope's contemporary reworking of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility launches The Austen Project and is already one of the most talked about books of the year. When sisters Elinor and Marianne lose their father and their beloved home, Norland Park, all in a matter of weeks, the shock impacts them in very different ways. As young architect student Elinor holds the family together, Marianne resists the change they must endure with all of her might. Thrust into a tiny cottage in Devon, the two sisters are soon united by one thing, dilemmas of the heart. But where Marianne proclaims her love, Elinor holds her tongue. And in a world that turns on an axis of money, sex and power, what will prevail: following one's head or one's heart?

This book is part of The Austen Project - six retellings of Jane Austen's beloved novels.

A must for Trollope and Austen fans alike’ Daily Mail ‘Trollope is an expert in her craft…it’s a faster, zestier, read than the original’ The Times ‘A bloody good read. I was so charmed, I missed my tube stop. Such is the power of Austen’ Stylist ‘A fun and light-hearted read’ Sunday Times ‘Trollope and Austen are a natural marriage’ Guardian ‘Austen’s characters translate remarkably smoothly into the present day… enjoyable modern satire’ Daily Telegraph ‘Plays out the siblings’ different romantic survival strategies to great effect’ Marie Claire ‘Is the new Sense & Sensibility worth reading? The answer is unequivocally yes’ Washington Post ‘Told with insight and ingenuity’ i Paper ‘It shouldn’t work, but it does brilliantly!’ Sun on Sunday, Fabulous Magazine ‘Jane Austen's story and Joanna Trollope's voice make the perfect marriage.

“An entertaining retelling of a classic story”

A modern retelling of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. For the most part it translates to a modern setting very well, although a few plot elements jar (mainly the importance of money in the relationships) and... More
