Publisher's Summary

When Mrs. Dashwood is forced by an avaricious daughter-in-law to leave the family home in Sussex, she takes her three daughters to live in a modest cottage in Devon. For Elinor, the eldest daughter, the move means a painful separation from the man she loves, but her sister Marianne finds in Devon the romance and excitement which she longs for. The contrasting fortunes and temperaments of the two girls as they struggle to cope in their different ways with the cruel events which fate has in store for them are portrayed by Jane Austen with her usual irony, humour, and profound sensibility.

A perfect narrative

Juliet Stevenson's reading of this classic piece is flawless. She understands each character and brings them to life in turn. I love this book even more since listening to her narrative. Highly recommended - I will now be downloading many more of Juliet Stevenson's readings.
