Sense and Sensibility; A Latter Day Tale

After their father's bankruptcy and death, sensible Elly and her idealistic sister, Maren, are trying to hold their family together and pay off the family debts. As they work through the changes that have come to their family, both women have a chance at love.
I loved this re-telling of Sense and Sensibility! Rebecca H. Jamison does a wonderful job of taking this classic and making it her own. It is close enough to Jane Austen's story, that readers will enjoy the similarities and (I think) enjoy the changes made to the story.
Two thumbs up!


  1. You can see why this story has been told over and over and why it always works.

  2. I know! You can change it up a bit and fall in love with it alk over again!
