When Mr.Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and three daughters in dire circumstances.
They are taken in by a cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne.
When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward, his family disapproves and separates them.
And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery Willoughby more to her taste.
Both relationships are tried but through the hardships and heartbreak, true love will find its way.
