I’m re-reading Sense and Sensibility (well listening to it – this version) and I had forgotten how much I enjoy it.
Here’s a quote …
‘A women of seven and twenty,’ said Marianne, after pausing a moment,’can never hope to feel or inspire affection again …’
I wonder how Anne Elliot feels about that?
Here is an image from a BBC adaptation (the 1981 one)
Marianne is being rescued by Willoughby.
