A novel that continues what Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility" began. In "The Third Sister", Julia Barrett faithfully evokes Jane Austen's style, characters and ambience to tell just what happens when the youngest Miss Dashwood meets two eligible suitors: the kind and earnest George Osborne and the very dashing and overly bold Lt. William du Plessy. Which man will she choose? Which man will she love? The gentleman or the scoundrel? Online promo (http: //www.romance.

A sequel to my favourite Austen novel, Sense and Sensibility. This is a well written novel, but it felt like Ms. Barrett was so concerned with writing like Jane Austen, that she ignored important elements like plot and character development. Margaret was a really boring character- Austen would have given her much more sparkle. The story itself, moreover, was quite boring and predictable. I wanted to like this, but it just didn't do it for me.
