Description


Continuing the wildly successful Puffin in Bloom line of classics--illustrated by Anna Bond, the artist behind the renowned lifestyle brand Rifle Paper Co.

Marianne Dashwood wears her heart on her sleeve, and when she falls in love with the dashing but unsuitable John Willoughby, she ignores her sister Elinor's warning that her impulsive behavior leaves her open to gossip and innuendo. Meanwhile Elinor, always sensitive to social convention, is struggling to conceal her own romantic disappointment, even from those closest to her. Through their parallel experience of love-- and its threatened loss--the sisters learn that sense must mix with sensibility if they are to find personal happiness in a society where status and money govern the rules of love.

About the Author


Jane Austen was born on December 16, 1775, at Steventon near Basingstoke, the seventh child of the rector of the parish. She lived with her family at Steventon until they moved to Bath when her father retired in 1801. After his death in 1805, she moved around with her mother; in 1809, they settled in Chawton, near Alton, Hampshire. Here she remained, except for a few visits to London, until May 1817, when she moved to Winchester to be near her doctor. There she died on July 18, 1817.

Anna Bond is an artist, designer, and entrepreneur best known for being the co-founder and chief creative officer of Rifle Paper Co., an international stationery, accessories, and home brand based in Winter Park, Florida, and SoHo, New York. Founded in 2009 with her husband Nathan, the couple organically grew the brand from an apartment-based business to an multi-million dollar brand carried in thousands of stores around the world. Beyond Rifle Paper Co., Anna is enjoys illustration, interior design, and, most of all, trying to keep up with her four young children.
