Megan Recommends: The Three Weissmanss of Westport

The Three Weissmanns of Westport by Cathleen Schine

Are you a Jane Austen fan? Then you'll immediately recognize the plot of this book as a modern take on Sense and Sensibility. Fear not, no zombies or sea monsters here. In this case, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood are transformed into Miranda and Annie Weissmann. The consequences of male primogeniture in the 19th century become the collateral damage of a late-in-life divorce in the 21st with lots of humor throughout.
