Sense and Sensibility
By Jane Austen

This book shows us the analysis of lifestyle, customs and laws governing an era where women had no rights and socially they were a kind of decorative object whose life depended on the willingness of men.
Through the book they relate us the story of 3 sisters, being Elinor and Marianne the main characters, that is how when the death of his father occurs they face a very rigid society.
The history takes place at England, after the father’s tragedy he leaves all his money to his cruel half brother John. These circumstances leave Mrs. Dashwood and the three daughters, Elinor, Marianne and Margaret, homeless and with few economic resources. The book relates us the sister’s love affairs, full of ups and downs. The eldest, Elinor, too wise and cautious to dare love, and the middle sister Marianne, surrender all her energies to live with passion and romance.
My alternative ending would be, when Elinor and Edward are married they decide to go on a trip and then buy a house near the sea in order to spend the best years of their life. While Marianne realize of her previous mistakes an discovers two passions that provide her he happiness she was looking for, reading and painting, she decide to study at a painting academy and reserves her remaining time reading several books. She grows up being a literate and mature person, until one day she meets a man who shares her passions and he proposes her marriage.
