Publisher's Description

Henry Detweiler dies unexpectedly, leaving his second wife and three daughters, Eleanor, Mary Ann, and Maggie, in the care of John, his oldest son from a previous marriage. John and his wife, Fanny, inherit the farm and, despite a deathbed promise to take care of their stepmother and half-sisters, John and Fanny make it obvious that Mrs. Detweiler and her daughters are not welcomed at the farm. When Edwin Fischer, Fanny’s older brother, takes notice of Eleanor and begins to court her, much to the disapproval of his sister, Fanny makes life even more difficult for the Detweiler women. 
 
In their new home, Eleanor wonders if Edwin will come calling while Mary Ann catches the attention of Christian Bechtler, an older bachelor in the church district, and John Willis, a younger man set to inherit a nearby farm. While Eleanor quietly pines for Edwin, Mary Ann does not hide her infatuation with John Willis. When the marriage proposal from John Willis does not materialize, Mary Ann is left grief-stricken and humiliated as the Amish community begins to gossip about their relationship. In the meantime, a broken-hearted Eleanor learns that Edwin is engaged to another woman.

Will admitting her affections for him result in the marriage proposal Eleanor has always desired?

    Sarah Price does an amazing job with this story and unfortunately for me I had it all read in less than a day, I wanted more, and there was with the epilogue, which I loved.

    When Henrys oldest son takes a vow on his deathbed to take car of his family, and John agrees, you could feel the sick mans sigh of relief. Of course, things are not about to be running smooth, when Johns wife banishes the family to the dawdi house, and talks her husband out of giving them the money he was supposed to give them. I hated that she had Maggies favorite climbing tree cut down, could really dislike Fanny.

    Wait until you see what God has planned for Eleanor and Mary Ann, and will choose correctly? What a read you are about to experience, and once you start you wont be able to put it down.

    We meet manipulators at their worse, and you want to shake them, but we can only hope that these girls will come the their senses and follow Gods plan for their lives. We find that sometimes, the evil some people display does come back to haunt them, and then I felt sorry for them also.

    Dont miss this great read you wont be disappointed!

    I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Realms, and was not required to give a positive review.

    I have truly enjoyed the Amish Classics Series by Sarah Price. Sense and Sensibility is another great addition to this collection. The story was so enjoyable and really flowed as I read it. It is written from Eleanors perspective and was quite a page turner for me.

    I loved how the novel was true to the original book, yet the Amish twists really fit. I felt anger with Fanny, and the way she treated the Detweiler family. I felt frustration with Mary Ann as she plunged headlong into the relationship with John Willis. I felt despair for Eleanor as she had to listen to Lydias secret confessions. Even though I knew that these things had to happen to remain true to the book, it did not lesson my reaction to them one bit. I loved this story from start to finish and definitely recommend it to fans of Amish fiction, as well as Jane Austen enthusiasts.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    I loved this book! I couldn't put it down and flew through it. What a nice twist to a classic Jane novel with the setting in Amish country. I look forward to the others in this series.

    What transpires when you blend Jane Austen's memorable characters with Sarah Price's unique Amish voice? A classic retelling of Sense and Sensibility is born -- a truly captivating tale of two sisters who must learn the hard way that the road to love is sometimes incredibly rocky -- and appearances can often be painfully deceptive!



    While on his deathbed, Henry Detweiler exacts a promise from his eldest son from a previous marriage, John, to take care of his second wife and daughters -- Eleanor, Mary Ann, and Maggie. However, when John's wife, Fanny, moves to their farm she makes no bones about her feelings for Mrs. Detweiler and her daughters, and proceeds to make life miserable for them. Edwin Fisher, Fanny's brother, is not at all like his sister and Eleanor begins to fall for him despite the fact that he has shown her nothing but friendship. When a relative makes a way for the Detweilers to move into a small cottage in the Amish community of Quarryville, they jump at the chance.

    While Eleanor quietly pines for Edwin and wonders if he will visit, her impetuous sister, Mary Ann, welcomes the attentions of the very handsome and charming John Willis, falling head over heels in love after only knowing him for a short while. Will these two sisters with very dissimilar temperaments and different approaches to love receive the proposals they long for...or will both be left heartbroken and alone?



    I absolutely loved this delightful novel and finished it in two short evenings! In my opinion, Sarah Price has truly shown her phenomenal writing skills in this novel as never before! Although I have always enjoyed her books this one has to go down as my favorite. You'll find yourself reaching for the tissues as the Detweiler sisters have to suffer pain and heartache to learn humility and gain maturity...especially the impulsive Mary Ann. Sarah Price has splendidly brought my best-loved Jane Austen tale to life -- a modern day masterpiece for "sure and certain" (as the Amish would say!)
