Published for the first time in flipback - the new, portable, stylish format that's taken Europe by storm. 'The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man who I can really love.' Sisters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood are on the brink of falling in love. Sensible Elinor falls for the respectable Edward Ferrars while impulsive Marianne becomes obsessed with the unreliable John Willoughby. But in this, one of Jane Austen's most engaging novels, the path to happiness is far from straightforward and the two girls have much to learn - from each other as well as themselves - before they find true love.
