Produced in a beautiful slipcase, this duo of Jane Austen novels offers readers an excellent opportunity to compare the lives of two groups of sisters: the Dashwoods (in Sense and Sensibility) and the Bennets (in Pride & Prejudice). Austen's perfect observations of life in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries are filled with wit and charm. Acknowledging the lot of women to find themselves husbands, Austen populates these two stories with a host of characters who will delight and entertain.
