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.

“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
