Sense and Sensibility (1811) by Jane Austen

Publisher: Penguin Books

Jane Austen’s moving depiction of wild emotions and bitterly suppressed feelings tells the story of two sisters: impulsive, idealistic Marianne, whose whirlwind romance with the unsuitable John Willoughby leaves her open to harmful gossip, and Elinor, who struggles quietly to conceal her own heartbreak, even from those closest to her.

Through their parallel experience of love – and its threatened loss – the two sisters learn that the path to happiness is not easy in a society where status and money govern the rules of love.
