That Other Dashwood Girl

A. R. Farina

Sometimes, you must be totally lost to finally find yourself.


Maggie Dashwood thought her whole life was laid out for her. Her well-to-do father had a plan that she and her two older sisters would follow to ensure the family's success. When tragedy strikes, everything she knows about the world changes, and her life is turned upside down.


Now, she, her mother and her two sisters must leave behind everything they've ever known while relying on the charity of others to begin again. Stranded in a new place with relative strangers, the Dashwoods try to stay a family while they work through their grief and find out if life can go on.


Will the family survive in-tact? Will Maggie discover her true self? This modern-day retelling of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility is full of heart, tears, and ultimately, triumph.
