Alison's the Sensible One

71 pages51 minutes


Alison has always kept the family together…but at what cost?

When her father died, she dealt with it. When her boyfriend cheated, she broke up with him. She's kept the same steady job since university. She's always done the sensible thing but moving home at 24 feels like she went wrong somewhere.

It’s hard looking after her sisters at home - Mary-Anne is a drama queen, Margaret is a typical teenager – and on top of that she’s got a new boss to deal with. Edward, her step-brother, is usually her ally, but when Alison finds out he has a secret girlfriend, she has to wonder; is sacrificing herself for others really sensible?

From the founder of the Jane Austen Society of New Zealand comes a story that's a lot Sense and Sensibility, a little Pride and Prejudice with a touch of Emma and even Lady Susan.
