Between Barton and Delaford, there was that constant communication which strong family affection would naturally dictate;—and among the merits and the happiness of Elinor and Marianne, let it not be ranked as the least considerable, that though sisters, and living almost within sight of each other, they could live without disagreement between themselves, or producing coolness between their husbands.

I enjoyed this retelling of Sense and Sensibility! It‘s a sweet story overall, not just the romance part but also the bond between the sisters. And I really did like that this book is told from the perspectives of Jane (the Marianne character) and Callum (the Colonel Brandon character). Would recommend to Austen fans!

Overall, I liked this modern adaptation of Sense and Sensibility - there are some similar storylines and characters in the novel, with enough tweaks to make the story its own. Admittedly, I got a little tired of Annie and Miranda and their constant antics bordering on self-pity. But, the story itself was a great distraction read and a fun adventure that it‘s a pick for me. #2010 #192025

Foreword and chapter 1: I skipped most of the intro because it seemed like there might be some spoilers. Here we meet Anne Sharpe, Jane‘s somewhat secret friend, who works for John and Fanny…. Also known as Jane‘s brother and SIL, Edward and Elizabeth….. #senseandsensibility #elizabethisfanny #nastyfamily #pemerlittens #chapteraday #jaaaaaames #couldntresist #imdonenow

Crinoline_Laphroaig This great because I just finished 1y
IndoorDame One of the two intro sections was about the friendship of the co-authors of this book and how they met, not about the subjects so no spoilers there, and it was really sweet. 1y

BarkingMadRead @IndoorDame oh that‘s good, I read the part about how they met but it started to look like they were going to break down the chapters, so I stopped! 1y
TheBookHippie I never read them because too many times SPOILERS 😂 1y
Caroline2 I often skip intros too because I don‘t want any spoilers. 😆 1y
Ruthiella I hear you on SPOILERS! It doesn‘t matter that the book has been in print for 100 years…that doesn‘t mean I‘ve read it! 😣 1y
AllDebooks I avoid intros until I've read the book 1y
suvata I guess I‘m the odd one, because I read everything from cover to cover in the order it is presented to me. That includes intros, afterwords, and anything but an index. 1y
julieclair I‘m in ! Please add me to the tag list. And… I never read intros either. Have been burned by spoilers too many times. I go back and read them as an afterword instead. 1y
BarkingMadRead @julieclair I‘ll add you!! I‘m glad to see it‘s not just me that skips the intro! 1y
suvata Chapter 1 - why in the world would Cassandra and Fanny burn the letters they got from Jane? It is a good thing that Fannie left behind her journals so we can learn a bit about Jane and Anne‘s relationship 1y
BarkingMadRead @suvata it blows my mind! 1y
julieclair @suvata Goid question! I have always assumed it was because they were trying to keep their family life private, and and maybe also to hide any less-than-flattering parts of Jane‘s personality from the public. 1y
suvata @julieclair Personally, I think she may have been gay and they don‘t want to admit it. That was so forbidden at that time. (edited) 1y
julieclair @suvata I wondered about that, too. Could she have been in love with Ann Sharpe? That is definitely something the family would have wanted to keep hidden in those days. 1y

I think I liked this one better than the first! The enterprising Dashwood sisters take up the investigation after they suspect their father had been murdered. A wonderful and fresh retelling of a story/author that's had their fair share of retellings. #mystery #retelling #senseandsensibility

SarahBookInterrupted I felt the same. 3mo
