"Sense and Sensibility" was published in 1811 and is a British romance novel by Jane Austen.

A work of romantic fiction, Sense and Sensibility is set in southwest England in 1792 through 1797 and portrays the life and loves of the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, daughters of their father Henry's second wife, Mrs. Dashwood. The sisters are starkly different from each other; Elinor is the epitome of prudence and self-control while Marianne embodies emotion and enthusiasm. Elinor, Marianne, and their younger sister, Margaret, are left in reduced circumstances when their father dies and his estate is passed onto their half-brother, John. The novel follows the young ladies to their new home, a meager cottage on a distant relative's property, where they experience love, romance and heartbreak.

The philosophical resolution of the novel is ambiguous: the reader must decide whether sense and sensibility have truly merged. Jane Austen is considered a pioneer of the romance genre of novels, and for the realism portrayed in her novels, is one the most widely read writers in English literature.

An all-time favourite

I could read this again and again: the charming Miss Dashwoods and Edward Ferrars; and my own favourite, enigmatic man of the world, Colonel Brandon. Sigh. Sisters Elinor and Marianne are virtually poles apart in their attitude to love - the embodiment of sense and sensibility respectively - until they each discover love and true love. The novel is about the blurring of boundaries between the two and finding the grey between the black and white. Disappointments await both along the way, but surely love will have it's way, won't it?
