A secret, a lie, the hidden truth, what cannot be said, and a pact of silence imposed by piety or loyalty, are the basis of this novel that narrates the misfortunes and sufferings of two sisters who believe they have found love.

Both are affected by different obstacles on the road to marriage, by the selfishness of other people, the hilarious recklessness of their neighbors and, above all, by their own personality and character. All this brings them face to face with poverty and its limitations, and the possibility of an aimless life.

Marianne is loquacious and romantic. On the other hand, Elinor is the representation of prudence and reserve. With different personalities, these sisters will eventually find balance in their lives

Pride and Prejudice

Jane Austen

This book arises from a deep knowledge of domestic life and the human condition. It is a book full of satire, sharp, profound and anti-romantic at the same time.

Pride and Prejudice has captivated several generations thanks to its characters and its humorous description of the society of a rural and Victorian England, which is shown to be absurd and contradictory.

When the handsome and wealthy Mr. Darcy appears in the Bennet family’s life, everything is turned upside down for the five young women in the family. It is then that pride, class differences, hypocrisy, cunning, misunderstandings and prejudices lead the characters to pain and scandal, but also to knowledge, understanding and true love.

Mansfield Park

Jane Austen

Because the child Fanny Price leads a life full of needs and limitations, her aunt and uncle decide to take her into their Mansfield Park mansion as an act of rescue and consideration for the infant.

This whole world is the scenario of a dangerous hidden truth, and only little Fanny, from her silence, will be able to glimpse the threats and consequences of it.
