Summary: Mrs. Dashwood and her daughters, Elinor, Marianne and teen-age tomboy Margaret, are cruelly deprived of their home and inheritance on the death of their father. The law decrees that magnificent Norland Park must pass to his son by a previous marriage, the girls' stepbrother John, who is partnered in life by the genteely grasping Fanny. The impoverished Dashwoods are saved from further humiliation by Mrs. Dashwood's cousin, Sir John Middleton. He offers them a new home, Barton Cottage, on his vast Devonshire estate.
