by Jane Austen
Sense and Sensibility is mainly about two girls, Marianne and Elinor Dashwood, who have moved into a small cottage after the recent death of their father. Elinor and Edward Ferrars are thought to be in love with each other, but Elinor is unaware of the secret Edward has. Marianne meets John Willoughby while nearly injuring herself, but is all of it just a game?
I thought it was pretty good because it explained how most women in that time period basically had nothing to look forward to except to get married.
I would definitely recommend this book if you have read other Jane Austen books. If you like Pride and Prejudice then try this one!
