Jane Austenâ€™s beloved Sense and Sensibility has moved to Westport, Connecticut, in this enchanting modern-day homage to the classic novelÂ When Joseph Weissmann divorced his wife, he was seventy eight years old and she was seventy-five . . . He said the words â€śIrreconcilable differences,â€ť and saw real confusion in his wifeâ€™s eyes.Â â€śIrreconcilable differences?â€ť she said. â€śOf course there are irreconcilable differences. What on earth does that have to do with divorce?â€ťÂ Thus begins The Three Weissmanns of Westport, a sparkling contemporary adaptation of Sense and Sensibility from the always winning Cathleen Schine, who has already been crowned â€śa modern-day Jewish Jane Austenâ€ť by Peopleâ€™s Leah Rozen.Â In Schineâ€™s story, sisters Miranda, an impulsive but successful literary agent, and Annie, a pragmatic library director, quite unexpectedly find themselves the middle-aged products of a broken home. Dumped by her husband of nearly fifty years and then exiled from their elegant New York apartment by his mistress, Betty is forced to move to a small, run-down Westport, Connecticut, beach cottage. Joining her are Miranda and Annie, who dutifully comes along to keep an eye on her capricious mother and sister. As the sisters mingle with the suburban aristocracy, love starts to blossom for both of them, and they find themselves struggling with the dueling demands of reason and romance.
