When Elinor and Marianne Dashwood and their mother are unfairly swindled out of their family inheritance they are forced to leave the family home in Norwood and move to Barton Cottage in Devonshire. The two sisters are soon accepted into their new society, Marianne falls for the roguish charms of John Willoughby while Elinor still mourns the loss of Edward Ferrars whom she has left behind.
Despite their very different personalities, both sisters experience great sorrows in their affairs, Marianne demonstrably wretched and Elinor allowing no-one to see her private heartache. Yet it is the qualities common to them both - discernment, constancy and integrity in the face of the fecklessness of others - that allow them entry into a new life.
