Three years after the conclusion of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, domestic bliss is not always easy to achieve. Colonel Brandon’s responsibilities for Eliza, the daughter of his first love, regularly take him away from home, and Marianne’s passionate, jealous nature threatens to rock the foundations of their marriage.
Now Willoughby and his wife have returned to the West Country. When Brandon is called away, Marianne meets Willoughby at a dinner and feels herself once again succumbing to his charm. The more she sees him, the more she’s in danger of giving in to her passion. Willoughby has everything to gain in driving a wedge between them. Will Brandon realize in time that his passionate young wife’s feelings of neglect may drive her into scandal? Can Marianne find the courage to turn her back on her first love? Or is it too late to save themselves and their marriage?
