Summary
In this sparkling contemporary adaptation of Sense and Sensibility, sisters Miranda, an impulsive but successful literary agent, and Annie, a pragmatic library director, quite unexpectedly find themselves the middle-aged products of a broken home when their mother, Betty, is dumped by her husband of nearly fifty years. Exiled from her elegant New York apartment by her husband’s new mistress, Betty is forced to move to a small, run-down beach cottage in Westport, Connecticut, owned by her wealthy and generous Cousin Lou. Joining her are Miranda, who is escaping unexpected literary scandals, and Annie, who dutifully comes along to keep on eye on her capricious mother and sister. As the sisters mingle with the suburban aristocracy, love starts to blossom for both of them, and they find themselves struggling with the dueling demands of reason and romance.

Not being familiar with Jane Austen adaptions I thoorughly enjoyed this book on its own merit. It was both hilariously funny and heartbreakingly sad at the same time. Even though I started out disliking everyone but Annie and the Cousin Lous' most characters redeemed themselves in the end except for the truly awful Barrows Clan. There were some really good one-liners, grating sarcasm, and a lot of tenderness. I liked it enough to listen to it twice and the bittersweet end was the topping on a most delicious audiobook. Kudos to the narrator, who did an outstanding job on the voice-overs.
