Sense and Sensibility: A Latter-day Tale by Rebecca H. Jamison
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Classic Retelling with LDS emphasis
Book Description: Which is the key to love—passion or sensibility? Sensible Elly and romantic Maren are sisters trying to hold their family together in the wake of their father’s bankruptcy and death. As each unexpectedly encounters the madness and misadventures of love, will they ever find the true happiness they dream of? This modern reimagination of the Jane Austen favorite will capture your heart all over again.
My thoughts: This story was just what I needed. Rebecca H. Jamison has taken a classic story and put a modern day spin on it. I think that if Jane Austen's characters were real people, they would like how they were portrayed in this book. :)
There are times when I finish the last sentence of a book that word's pop into my head. This book it was "awe". It left me with a great feeling that all was well with the world. Every loose end that I could see was closed and I felt contentment.
If you enjoy retellings of classic books, this is one that you may want to try. The book is written with religious references, but it is not the underlying theme of the book. I would feel comfortable letting my teenage daughter read this book. It's clean and entertaining.
