Sense and Sensibility: A Latter-Day Tale (A Latter-Day Tale) by Rebecca H. Jamison. 2014. Bonneville Books: Cedar Fort Publishing. Goodreads.
As if it wasn’t bad enough to be getting food from Church welfare, I had to meet one of the Ferreros—and a good-looking Ferrero, at that.
Elly Goodwin, a brilliant programmer, is so desperate for a job that she takes one from her ex-boyfriend—the same man who put her family out of business. Then she meets Ethan Ferrero, who seems too good to be true. But Elly is far too sensible to unexpectedly fall in love—especially with her ex’s brother-in-law.
But when Elly’s sister, Maren, dates the wrong guy, Elly must intercede before Maren’s passion clouds her common sense. Together, Elly and Maren must learn that a mixture of sense and sensibility is the perfect recipe for love.
A few weeks after my brain tumor surgery I had to have Radiation. Back in September 2014, right before starting Radiation, I started to read Sense and Sensibility: A Latter-day Tale. During Radiation I tried to read, but it was NOT fun going through this treatment every Monday through Friday for 6 weeks. All I could do was watch TV. I did happily go back to reading in November and finished this book in December. Sorry, this is probably more information than you want to know. I just like to share that, for me, reading helps my recovery.
The 2 main girl characters were going through some difficult stuff. The 2 sisters reacted differently. Elly holds things together. She had to hold back more than she probably would have because of her sister Maren’s reaction of heavy emotions. It was good seeing them be so real. Boys of course are also involved. Good stuff there. Also, on the side there are some good mentions of their christian church.
I love reading Jane Austen 21st century re-tellings. This Sense and Sensibility was a great one!
