Sense and Sensibility by Jane AustenAlternate cover edition of ISBN 9780141439662
The more I know of the world, the more am I convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!
Marianne Dashwood wears her heart on her sleeve, and when she falls in love with the dashing but unsuitable John Willoughby she ignores her sister Elinors warning that her impulsive behaviour leaves her open to gossip and innuendo. Meanwhile Elinor, always sensitive to social convention, is struggling to conceal her own romantic disappointment, even from those closest to her. Through their parallel experience of love—and its threatened loss—the sisters learn that sense must mix with sensibility if they are to find personal happiness in a society where status and money govern the rules of love.
This edition includes explanatory notes, textual variants between the first and second editions, and Tony Tanners introduction to the original Penguin Classic edition.

The acting in both is just superb as are the scripts, and Andrew Davies did opt for the format that enabled him to go longer than 2 hours, which the story needs to be complete. Perfection sigh! I'm sure I'll greatly esteem it, too. Haven't yet been able to convince your niece to watch it with me, but one of these days I'm hoping it'll become a mother-daughter bonding moment for us!
