Sense and Sensibility: A Latter-day Tale by Rebecca H. Jamison

Book Description:

Which is the key to love—passion or sensibility? Sensible Elly and romantic Maren are sisters trying to hold their family together in the wake of their father’s bankruptcy and death. As each unexpectedly encounters the madness and misadventures of love, will they ever find the true happiness they dream of? This modern reimagination of the Jane Austen favorite will capture your heart all over again.

Review:

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book since I've never read Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen or seen any movies about it. But, being the sucker that I am for a good cover, I thought, eh, why not? Besides, the other books I've read from this author were really good. This book did not disappoint!

Ethan and Elly were fun to read about. I could relate to them, and their take on relationships. Maren and Colton I didn't understand as much. I definitely don't do things the way they did. But I did really like getting to know this family and how they work. I loved the different points of view Jamison used in this story.

It's kind of surprising, but I think my favorite character was the mother. There isn't much about her in this story, but from the little there was you could see she was quite the woman who loved her family very much and was doing the best she could for them. I'm not sure why that stood out to me so much, because, like I said, she really isn't a part of the story, but I liked her all the same.

I appreciate a good clean story, and I don't think it should come as a surprise to anyone that there are LDS references in this book. Nothing in it is preachy though, and I don't think you need to belong to the LDS church to understand it either.

If you are looking for a good, quick, clean, romantic read, give this story a shot.
