He is not the only young man
in the world worth having.
Teenage sisters Marianne and Elinor Dashwood could not be more different. Marianne is passionate, impetuous and recklessly romantic. Elinor is practical, thoughtful and completely reserved. But Marianne and Elinor discover they have more in common than they thought when they both fall head over heels in love with unattainable men.
Opposites in every way except for their heartbreak, the two girls are determined to make their dreams come true. But in a society ruled by status and money, Elinor and Marianne will have to fight for the happy ending they both deserve. Through a series of romantic misadventures the girls come to realise that the key to their happiness may not lie in fiery passion or strict reason — but somewhere in between.
Jane Austen's sweepingly romantic masterpiece continues to delight generation after generation of readers. Beautifully presented for a modern teen audience, this is the must-have edition of a timeless classic.
