Where Elinor governs her emotions, Marianne unleashes hers – so when their father's untimely demise forces a stark change of circumstance for the two Dashwood sisters, they react quite differently.
To add to the shock they are forced to accept diminished rank and the loss of their home. Now, with nothing but their respective prudence and passion to recommend them, how will each sister cope with falling in love in a society where marriage and status are one?
And when Marianne follows her heart with abandon, can Elinor forget hers?
