Summary
Joanna Trollope's much-anticipated contemporary reworking of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility will launch The Austen Project and be one of the most talked about books of 2013. It is hugely exciting to attempt the reworking of one of the best novels written by one of our greatest novelists. This is a project which requires consummate respect above all else; not an emulation, but a tribute. The Austen Project is a major new series of six novels teaming up authors of global literary significance with Jane Austen's six complete works. When Fanny Dashwood descends on Norland Park with her Romanian nanny and her mood boards, Belle Dashwood?s three daughters, Elinor, Marianne and Margaret must face the reality of life without their father, their home, or their money. As they come to terms with life without the status of their country house, or the comfort of an inheritance, Elinor and Marianne are also confronted by the cold hard realities of a world where sometimes people?s attitudes can change as drastically as your circumstances. With her sparkling wit, Joanna Trollope casts her clever satirical eye on the tales of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. By casting Sense And Sensibility in an elegant and fresh new light what might appear to the modern eye to be all romance, bonnets and betrothals becomes a wonderfully witty coming-of-age story about the stuff that really makes the world go around, and how when it comes to money, some things never change
Summary
A modern retelling of the Jane Austen classic follows the Dashwood sisters--Elinor, Marianne and Margaret--as they, after the death of their father, must come to terms with the cruelties of life without the status of their country house, the protection of the family name or the comfort of an inheritance
