THE BLURB:    

The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!

After the death of Henry Dashwood leaves his three daughters, Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret, and his widowed wife out of his inheritance, the four ladies move out of his estate and into their own modest house. With a new life opens up new worlds. The girls meet many new characters and soon develop their own unique personalities as they mature from adolescents into young women.

 

THE AUTHOR:    

Jane Austen was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen’s plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security.

THE FIRST LINE:   

The family of Dashwood had long been settled in Sussex.

 

MY THOUGHTS:    

Confession: If I’ve ever read the book, I don’t remember it. #dontjudge  The movie, however (#dontjugde) was captivating, and fostered my love of Jane Austen’s stories.
