Tonight, we’ll be reading the opening to Jane Austen’s 1811, "Sense and Sensibility". It was published anonymously; 'By A Lady' appears on the title page where the author's name might have been. It tells the story of the Dashwood sisters as they must move with their widowed mother from the estate on which they grew up.
