{Synopsis} – Impulsive Marianne Dashwood and cautious Elinor are as different as two sisters could be, yet both are shattered by their father’s sudden Death. Elinor’s attachment to the reserved Edward Ferrars is torn asunder by family opposition and his own dark secret, while Marianne’s brilliant romance with the dashing John Willoughby comes to a tumultuous end in a devastating public betrayal. Can the two sisters overcome these trials to find true, lasting happiness?

Jane Austen’s beloved first novel, filled with romance, redemption and social critique, is brought to life for a modern audience in this gorgeous manga-style adaptation!

{My thoughts} – The Dashwood Sisters and their story of finding love and acceptance. When their father dies the two girls and their mother move to a distant town over. They try this best to forget the past and move forward with the future. However, as you know that isn’t always as easy as one may believe it to be got them, that seems to be the case.

Both girls struggle to find love and a man they can marry and trust. Both girls have so much to prove to those around them as well as themselves that they aren’t always careful about some of the choices they choose to make. This comes to light mostly when we are seeing Elinor and her love interest before they move and Marianne and her love interest after they move.

I have read enough books in the Manga Classic Series to be biased towards certain ones. I have to admit I am rather biased towards this particular book and it’s story. The illustrations within the book depict the characters raw emotions so well, that it makes you want to pick up another book in the series. I really do enjoy how well illustrated, thought out and put together these books are.

This is definitely one of the books with a story that has crossed over years and is still relevant today. I truly enjoy reading a book that I as a reader can relate to and this is one of those books. I look forward to reading more books in this series in the future!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
