Elinor Dashwood is affectionate and good-natured--but above all, prudent. She takes pride in her ability to conceal her emotions from others. Her younger sister, Marianne, on the other hand, is everything Elinor is not: impulsive, romantic, and carefree. It's hard to imagine two sisters who could be more different.

But twists of fate will unite Elinor and Marianne in a tangled web of deception that could ruin each of them.

Both have decided to marry. Elinor has made a sensible decision and has set her sights on a man she believes will be a good husband and a decent provider. Marianne--swept away by emotion--has lost her heart to a handsome, dashing charmer. Men as different as night and day: but each sister believes she has made the perfect choice.

Or has she?
